Take Two (the publishers behind some well-known video game franchises like Grand Theft Auto and NBA 2K) CEO Strauss Zelnick stated that their future games will have some kind of recurrent consumer spending, that is, to keep gamers spending money on the game after they've already bought it.

A lot of users on GTAForums were outraged about this. It was quite the discussion on there.

Thoughts?
