Quote from the CFO
There’s a massive misunderstanding of what free-to-play is. You play a lot of free-to-play games, especially the casual type on Facebook, they’re not free-to-play at all. They’re pay-to-play in the guise of free-to-play. What we’ve learned from experience from more than a decade ago is that if you make it impossible to progress in a game without paying, it’s not a free-to-play game at all. You alienate your users and you lose them over time. You have no longevity in the end. We have 10-year-old games that continue to grow.
Wonder if he plays games at all.
The irony...omg, I can't. HAHAHAHA.
Of course, the whole interview is skewed with bias cause he has a vested interest in seeing the online gaming industry continue to grow and expand.
Surprised to see Puzzle and Dragons get mentioned. Lulz.
