Paying for playing
« on: September 23, 2008, 03:23:01 PM »
I've read an article at Kotaku saying that many AAA games, like GTAIV, Fallout3 or Dawn of War2 are heading for Games For Windows only, including the "Live" option. Although Microsoft is, as far, denying that players will have to pay for playing online I see no other purpose of creating GFW Live cause Windows is the only platform at which many people play. Why would Microsoft pay for servers, bonus content and make all this effort if they didn't get anything in return ?

So my questions is about paying. I would really have to think twice before I decided to pay additional money for something that has been free since the beginning. To be honest, I don't really need all these gamertags, achievements and other console things.
