MS pushing for Free-2-Play on Xbox Live

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - MS pushing for Free-2-Play on Xbox Live

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Team Fortress 2 will henceforth be a free-to-play title comes a rumor that Microsoft is about to open up Xbox Live to free-to-play developers.

Free-to-play is definitely an MMO model that’s become extremely popular, so loosening up restrictions on Xbox Live and getting in on the action should be a no-brainer on Microsoft’s part.

In the meantime, what’s your take? Would Microsoft be smart to jump on the free-to-play bandwagon, or will Xbox Live be just fine without any substantial MMO offerings?

If you think about this question for more than 5 seconds, the answer is painfully clear. What do you think? :P

Oh man that would be awsome. I got a Beta invite but my computer was below spec's so I couldn't play. I'm dying to try this sucker out if it was on Live I would go mad.
