Hmm... I don't know. I might actually prefer it if I had to pay $2.50 to proceed to the next chapter in some games if the initial buy-in was like $10. That would save me a lot of cash as I would be paying purely for the enjoyment I got.
Chapters 1-2 - $10 Chapters 3-10 - $2.50 each
Not feeling like you are getting your money's worth? You are out $10 at most. Not sure what this would do to the economy of design and development, but from a user's standpoint I'm not sure that sounds too bad.
