Sorry, but I don't like that proposed model. Personally, I think that seeing as gaming grew from 1972 until 2005 without DLC, I think it could go another 30 years without it.
If you don't like this model, then I hope you never participated in any of the Humble Indie Bundle sales. Because the way they have those, they are basically the same idea taken to an extreme. Many find that a great idea, and the developer's seem to be happy with it as well.

I dont pretend to like EA, or any other major publisher. EA isnt Activision simply because they arent in first place. In places where they are such as RPGs with mass effect and Dragon age, you can see they have already gone the cod route and are pulling content, and selling over priced DLC, while releasing terrible games. yes mass effect 2 and dragon age 2. two games that a mockery of the originals, in terms story and quality.
Problem is we have sen it. Looks at WOW. Every game developer wants to sucker I mean have rabid fans that pay for little to no work. Over the course of a year Blizzard pulls over $140 dollars and does not deliver 3 new games worth of content. As an investor it's great as a gamer, well let say it's not my cup of tea.

Though I believe you to be wrong, I can only wish for their fall.

Software as a service model is what games as a service model comes from. It is basically a subscription/rental service of software instead of outright buying the license to the software. You don't buy games. You buy the service every month or so and that allows you to play the game.

Games as a Service is a subscription.

They would not change the model unless they thought they could increase profits.
