John Riccitiello, CEO of Electronic Arts, explains to investors that the free-to-play formula more and more profitable. At the same time, his company experienced a share price drop to a 10-year low. Even so, he insists that the move into free-to-play is increasing income.
"There's a lot of power in free-to-play," Riccitiello commented. "And by the way, for what it's worth, free-to-play is anything but free. We have lots of games that are 'free-to-play', where paying users are giving us ten, twenty, thirty dollars a month. What happens is the first game play is free, but then when you get into the game you have to pay for things."
