GameTap To Be Free But Ad Driven

GameTap, the previously subscription-based on-demand gaming service is to drop its subscription charges and fund itself via advertising instead. The online system, owned by Turner Broadcasting, is facing competition from Showtime Networks, "On Broadband" system.

GameTap's services are usually $9.95 (£5) a month or $6.95 (£3.50) a month when paid for a full year in advance. According to GameTap, it is to offer 30 to 60 'classic' games for free to be played via its Lite Player web-based launcher.

Not sure if how many this affects, i've never used the service but since it's free i may take a second look.
