Earlier this week, King – known for such games as Candy Crush and… uh, Candy Crush – opined that all games should adopt the free-to-play business model.
"The micro-transaction is so strong and it’s definitely a much better model," said King games guru Tommy Palm. "I think all companies have to transition over to that. If you talk to many hardcore gamers, they’re not happy about it right now, but if you asked them about the long term, 'Do you want to continue playing your favourite game for years to come?' the answer will be yes."
Well, what do you think? Should all games go free-to-play? Should it depend on the game? Is free-to-play a horrible blight on the industry that needs to be abolished as soon as possible? Vote in this week's poll and let us know!
Due to the holiday weekend, next week's podcast has already been recorded so the poll results will be revealed in a written article next week.
