Adding micro-transactions to any game is going to be couple dozen fold more expensive than just buying it outright at one steady price. Free-to-play means you get less of an unadulterated experience with game.

If the future of mobile games is the freemium model, consoles won't have anything to worry about, and will be relevant for years to come.

I avoid Fee to Pay titles, 100%.
Blacklisted EA titles like Dead Space 3 and future title that follow such model..etc.

Dead Space 3 can be played just fine without the fees. I dont put any blame on EA for doing this. What they are doing is a business and it requires a profit to continue operating. I would prefer the approach of trying to make better use of their budgets to minimize costs so they wont have to do the microtransactions, but I dont fault them for doing them as long as the game itself is still balanced and fun and not a heavy grindfest, because of their being idiots willing to hand over extra dollars for digital stuff in game.

Yep, they get more people downloading and playing the games when they are free. Myself and many friends play Real Racing 3 which is "freemium" yet none of us have spent a dime on the game and have a blast playing! If you want to spend money on the games you can, if you don't want to spend money and just play you can do that as well. I see no problem with it at all. I the freemium games I've played paying real money only unlocked things sooner than just playing the game as it was designed.
