Are the virtues of free-to-play still up for debate?

Also there is a lecture by economist Prof. Royce at the conclusion of the 'cast. Take notes as there will be a test.

How much money would you drop on a pre-purchase for a free-to-play game? That seems like a trick question, but as the Massively Speaking crew finds out, it's somehow a serious question in the MMO industry. Join us for another great show as we debate moneys, murder, and Evony. Wait, who put Evony in this show? Must've been the intern, Yogash. Stupid Yogash.
