Free-to-play games are all the rage right now on PC and if ‘a trusted source’ from IGN is to be believed, Xbox Live may be getting them as well. According to them, Microsoft will allow these types of games in the future where users can purchase additional DLC packs and in-game content not included with the free version.
Obviously, this is a rumour, and a big one at that. IGN didn’t list their source but this certainly sounds feasible to us. Games on the Xbox Live Arcade and DLC packs for retail titles sell like hotcakes so if your Microsoft, why not try the free-to-play market for a while and see if it’s worth your time?
