People here, no.
The rest of the world, yes.
Check out the highest grossing games list, which is based directly on revenue rather than download numbers.
I think the top 10, bar 1, are all free to download games.

No. It. Wasn't.

Jesus Christ, I even linked the interview to you and told you where to watch.

Because you managed to miss it, here it is AGAIN.

1m 30s in ... watch it and weep. Same video, same quality, says it's running on iPad 3.

That depends entirely on how many repairs you can get from said gold coins.
I'm terrible at racing games, love them, but not very good at them, and I crash a lot and damage cars all the time in them.

If I pay 10 bucks for an IAP, I wouldn't like it when 20 game sessions down the road, I'm back at having to wait for a car to be delivered or a repairment to be done to my car.
And I'll bet that'll be the case, sooner or later, 'cause that's the way consumable IAP's works.

After a while, you'll have to cough up again, and that just sucks.

I supposed asking everyone to calm down and wait for the 28th is unreasonable? Honestly the pay scheme seems very fair to me.

Obviously I'd prefer it be paid, but hey, this is a far cry from CSR.

Okay, you make a very reasonable point.
I also would like to know how many gold coins we will get for that.
I do know we will get varying amounts for levelling up also while playing the game but again its unknown to what degree.
Unfortunately, we will have to wait and see what it amounts to until release.
But I'm cautiously optimistic that I will have enough at the 9.99 price point and from levelling up.
What you say is indeed a key point though.

THIS! It's nothing permanent. And this destroys everything for the gamer. And makes the dev (and more so the publisher) swim in money from all the poor addicts out there. TA staff can defend this title as much as they want. The facts about how their IAP will work are spilled. And 1+1 simply is an easy equation for anyone with a bit of brain. Can't wait to see how they'll defend it when the game is finally out. They will find a way

All I'm defending is the use of logic, reason, and maybe a bit of Occam's Razor that there's absolutely no reason for people to go this far off the handle for a game that isn't even out yet that they haven't played. If RR3 is released and it's the most abusive F2P ever, then sure, go nuts. But, for now, this is just one massive anger-filled circle jerk rallying around the tired "Rah rah we hate freemium" while posting in other threads about how they can't wait for a game to go on sale (or free).

In other words, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkins..._of_triviality
