    Well that’s a surprise – I wonder how they will implement the adverts and also how much they will pull in from the adverts? I could see it going either way as it will obviously now pull people in who were on the fence due to cost before, but then equally people like me who are currently subscribing would be tempted to downgrade to the free model so they would earn less

    I'm guessing they somehow "pause" the game stream and stream to you an advert.

    Could be a dying companies last ditch attempt at generating a revenue stream, or a growing companies attempt to build a user base.

    I hope they survive, it would be real nice to be able to try top tier (big 'if' there!!) games with a zero cost, zero install option.

    Apparently you watch some videos (1-6 mins) and then it lets you play for an hour - going paid stops the adverts and lets you use a higher spec machine it seems
