[RS] GamersGate Explain FreeGames. (VIDEO)

RPS: What games will be available via the FreeGames service?

Bergquist: We’re aiming at 200 on release, high and low from all categories. We have more than 3000 games in our catalogue and our aim is to make as many of them available as possible down the line. Unfortunately we can’t disclose any specific games or publishers at the moment. Stay tuned for more info though.

RPS: Do you have to view an advert each time you play? Are there any other adverts displayed during playing the game?

Bergquist: No advertising when you play, only before. We’re gamers too, and who would like to watch ads when playing? That would really mess up the experience.
Looks like they're doing everything right so far. Can't wait for the beta!

admirable but risky business with crack groups out there and such.

This seems like it'll be awesome, it might be best for the devs/pubs to do cloud though.

The day we switch over to cloud for computers count me out completely. This is nothing more than an endgame for user control over what they can and can't do with their operating systems. Every computer has enough space for anything these days and the recent hacks should show that your information isn't safe from anyone who really wants it.

Great. Let's just hope this isn't going to be region restricted when it launches.

Until I see it in action, I'm unsure on whether it will work.

anyone else notice the typo for "compelete" on the video?

You really think they are that stupid? There are many sites that won't work if you don't view the ads. Some mirror sites will not let you download unless you are shown the ads. Also, if you do what you said, you eliminate revenue for the company, meaning they can't provide that service.
