Why you shouldn’t be surprised that only 2.2 per cent of F2P players spend money
I was recently interviewed by Eurogamer about Swrve’s revelation that only 2.2 per cent of F2P gamers spend any money. I had thought it was going to be a piece with lots of contributors, but I guess I said enough for Eurogamer to give me a post all of my own.
