According to gossip merchants from Deepest Rumorkistan, Microsoft is currently in talks with publishers about getting Xbox Live ready to accept free-to-play games. The increasingly popular business model allows players to obtain a game for no cost, in hopes of selling them premium in-game content later.
Hardly surprising Microsoft is interested in getting a piece of that action.
The rumor suggests that MS will get to sell you more Microsoft Points in order to buy your +1 Wand of Frost or Helmet of Things That Happen. Therein lies the sinister catch.
I've got no issue with free-to-play models, I just don't like the idea of any of the major console holders getting involved because they'll be assholes about it in spectacular ways we never even thought possible.
