    I like it. The "all free" game thing shouldn't stop many games from coming to it to be honest. I've been waiting for sports games to be subscription-based anyways. They update rosters every week based on trades/injuries/etc. and they charge for that service, not the game itself. Not sure how it will work with FPS, but those could have subscription fees for the online servers and stuff. It really shouldn't be much of an issue for them to make their money when the game itself is technically free

    People make way too much fuss over IAP anyways on mobile devices. $60 console games have IAP, I don't understand why they are so frowned upon in cheap/free mobile games.
