    Hmm... I don't like the idea of forcing developers to make the games free. I think this will hinder the console's game development.

    Going with a "free" game setup is going to kill this platform before it ever gets a chance. There are not many folks out there that like the "pay to play more" games. I think demo's should be mandatory or at least highly recommended, but free with in game purchases... nope not this gamer.
