Take the current trend in free-but-not-free mobile gaming and apply it to consoles... what would happen? TGR take a look forward in time...
That would be the day I stop gaming. I like to see the cost at the moment of purchase and not be lured and manipulated into spending money down the line. Okay stopping might be a bit harsh, I would probably just go back and play all the great games I have missed over the years.
You'll be as good at the game as the cash you spend on it. Free MMOs make for a perfect example. Why grind for two months straight when you can just blow your entire paycheck on the best weapons and armour and get the same results in only 2 minutes? While the games may be free to play, you will end up spending money to win. I am not looking forward to a future dominated by a freemium business model.
