Seems like Activision might, just might, finally be catching on. Free to play is huge, they need to do more, and not just in Asia

I have my doubts. It might be free to play but if you want a gun its $3.00. When you reload it is a quarter. If you want your avatar to not have malaria, then you will need to buy medical supplies every ten minutes for $4.50 a pop.

I'd love to see a CoD or Battlefield game that puts USA against China. If they make it realistic enough, then we'll see Chinese made weapons made from Chinese steel with their gun barrels warping from heat and maybe even some exploding barrels where the gun looks like its got a big flower on the end.

I'm really interested to see how they implement this - and if it makes it to consoles with the micro-transaction system.

Somehow I doubt this will even be out on consoles considering it's China after all.
