Default Premium vs Freemium

Hi guys. I have read a lot if discussions in the TA forums lately, and even participated in a few, where people have been hotly debating premium vs freemium. There is no one answer to this conflict, as everyone has different opinions. The threads where these discussions have been going on have been going grossly off topic because of this. This is the thread where you can discuss this question to your hearts content.

What?..... I don't get that. Either I don't have a sense if humor, or you are referring to something I don't get.

You're lucky i'm not a mod!

But yes, agree with Danny. I don't mind freemiums, as long as the IAP's aren't intrusive.

In my opinion the Simpson Tapped Out is a perfect example of the perfect freemium game. A ton of content really often updates, and completely uninstrusive IAP.

I don't really care. I love a good freemium game (dragonvale, for example) but I don't mind shelling out a few bucks for a good premium.

Do freemium whales even hang out at Toucharcade? I imagine that they would be permanently glued to their Farmville plots...

Seriously though, most of the people I have come across in real life who are into freemium tend to be the Facebook games type.
