Battlefield 3 Premium and Setting a Good Example
Video games as a service is going to happen. It’s just a matter of when, and that depends on how much the consumer stamps their feet. And as Microsoft’s recent policy reversal shows, they’re doing a lot of stamping. The service model doesn’t have to be an intrinsically negative step for video gaming. Battlefield 3 shows the positive benefits that can exist in such an environment, but it seems like, at least for now, it’ll be the one good console-based example shining out through a pile of mud.
