Wondering what these deals on gaming subscription services do to F2P. I could buy a Battle Pass & enjoy a month/season of a game but often for significantly less I can rent a bag of premium games (even including DLCs/premium tiers for Ubisoft's offering) where I feel I'm always on the clock to consume until the month expires. Pushes F2P down my priority list in the evening.

@shivoa Lines between premium and F2P games is getting blurrier by the day.

If this keeps up we will end up having to pay for 10-20 dollars for subscription services just to play what we now consider F2P games.

There are already talks about showing ads on Netflix and Apple Arcade, Google Stadia etc with microtransactions and ads is only matter of time.
