    I'm wondering if the game itself will be F2P (that means without Gold) after the beta. The beta itself requires Gold. Hmmm.....

    Doesn't everyone have gold though? I'd think there are more gamers with subs than without...?

    I'm sure more people do than dont but thats not the point. If youre required to be a paying Gold member to play it then its not really F2P. Would be interesting to know how many Silver members there are. Might be more than we think.

    Thats how MS should do it but I seriously doubt thats how they will do it. MS PR will just say its adding value to the Gold membership.

    It's a multi-player game, so yes you have to have gold.

    But its still a F2P game. For example for PS4 F2P online games will be free to play for non PS+ members despite PS+ being required for online play for regular games. Now thats true F2P.

    F2p just means that you can download/play the game without paying.

    It all depends on the type of game. If the game is a MMO type then you will need to be PSPlus now that they have changed that. There are free to play xbox games for silver too depending the game.The whole point of it is another way to get revenue.

    Yea, there are some xbox live ones that are that way too. It all depends on the game. Just because you have to have gold or PSplus doesn't make the game not F2P. The paywall isn't coming from the game dev/publishers. They aren't the ones charging you. Their revenue comes from in game purchases.

    Well my initial point was mainly that it sounds funny to say F2P for Gold members in the same breath. lol Anyway no big deal.
