Free Games Coming to GamersGate

A new FreeGames section on GamersGate has a timer counting down to the launch of a new service that will offer the ability to play Windows and OS X games for free thanks to advertising support. This is still a ways off, as the counter currently stands at 84+ days, but they are offering signups to beta test the project. Here's word on how this will work: "FreeGames allows users to play and enjoy both PC and Mac titles free of charge after watching a short advertisement at the launch of the game. Gamers will be able to have up to five games available for free on their account at any time with the capability to add additional games." Here's more: "With over 3,000 titles, GamersGate has the largest catalog of games available for download on the web. The company expects that a large portion of them will be available in the ad-supported model for the September launch."

Sounds like a good way to demo a game with no demo. I'll still buy the full game if I like it. While this business model may work well for the site, I see this being less sales for the publisher.

This sounds very interesting considering the majority of their catalog will be available for it. And all you have you do is watch an ad before playing it. Why are there no comments on this?
