free-2-play or pay-2-win? the micro-transaction business
« on: September 20, 2011, 02:57:28 AM »
bit-gamer.net recently did a research about micro-transactions that are becoming prevalent in today's games. quite an interesting article since more companies are opting for this model. the article also mentions DLC (downloadable contents) but didn't explore it that much.

I wonder when consoles are going to move more towards this method of "Pay2Win"

Surely cant be long now...look at how much money these micro-payment games actually make...I, myself have been known to download a F2P game, only to purchase extras to make my character stronger, or look better, or just for the sheer hell of it...yet if they had put a price tag on the game to download and play...I would not have bothered spending more than 2 minutes on their website  :huh:
