Critical Question of the Day: Business Models?
In the world of video games, DLC is king. Whether it's pay to play and then download more or it is the "Freemium" model of "here's a little bit, but wait, there's more... for $0.99" the consumers of video games are trained to know that the entire experience is not included in their main purchase. Boardgaming is slightly different though. We tend to include the entirety of the experience in a box, and include free promos. Sure, expansions arise for popular games, but rarely are they ever a portion of the original experience "shaved off" for future use. The question of the day? Which model do you prefer? Which do you think is better? Is one better? Sound off and let us know, but by all means, enjoy your games... no matter what kind they are!
