Free Fallout on GameTap & GameTap's Future

GameTap has word that they've added Fallout 2 and Stand O'Food as new premium games to their online gaming service, and in anticipation of the imminent release of Fallout 3, they've added the original Fallout as a free game. Also, following up on yesterday's news that GameTap has partnered with Metaboli (story) has a brief Q&A on the move with Metaboli CEO Pierre Gaudet, who will be in charge of the whole shebang. Word is that Turner basically gave GameTap to Metaboli in hopes that a sizable minority share in the merged entity will turn out to be worth more than GameTap is now. He also says going forward the GameTap/Metaboli partnership will offer more download to own games (he uses the term "baby iTunes" for games) and more branded partnerships with third parties, which apparently are a bigger part of Metaboli's business than subscribers.

You don't have to pay for anything to access Gametap's free games. Perhaps you didn't follow instructions or read it correctly.
