Not saying they will, just threatening that I will.

F2P games have burned a lot of people, even those that spend money on them.
They have to, otherwise nobody would buy their stuff. Who would be idiotic enough to pay for something they could get for free without effort?
Of course it's going to be better off paying money. The question is, by what margin?

As stated above, Tribes:Ascend isn't too bad, but the prices are too high.
The XP levels and time taken without paying is very long, a little less if you bought at least something once (you get a permanent +50% XP boost the first time you buy smtg), which make people pay something.
Issue being, prices are far too high.

The problem is not that it's gonna be better to pay or not. It should be better to pay.
The "problem" or lack thereof, is how much money is going to be needed to get past the grind?

The way I take F2P games : I paid 15 bucks per month on PS1, that's the max level I intend to pay on PS2. And that's a lot of money compared to usual pay2play games. PS2 is going to murder the money I spent on Skyrim or that I intend to spend on ArmA3.
If for this, I can't have much in-game, I don't think PS2 will last long for me
