F2P titles coming to Xbox 360

Microsoft is fostering new relationships with developers in a bid to bring free-to-play gaming to Xbox, Develop understands.

Microsoft’s 360 operating system will incorporate a microtransactions service, Develop has heard, where in-game items will be exchanged for Microsoft Points on the fly.

Develop has the full story.
