We have yet another different winner for the latest installment of our So You Think You Can Review Video Games user review contest.

This time, it's Temjin001 for his excellent analysis of DiRT 3 . His user review has been published as an official guest review and because I've got some extra stuff lying around, he can also take his pick of the available prizes (just follow the links, Temjin, and bear in mind I've also got Spec Ops: The Line ). As I've said before, we're going to keep the number of user reviews selected for the final poll to around four or five; this way, PSXE peeps don't have to read a ton, and it also keeps the competition high.

This week, in response to the news that microtransactions via the free-to-play format could be the wave of the future, we thought we'd ask you what you guys think. Do you like the idea of the industry shifting in this direction? Would you rather only a few select titles utilize this form of distribution? Or do you just hate it altogether? Let us know.

Congrats Temjin. Hmm should I enter again?

It is my personal opinion that microtransactions should only ever be connected to MMOs.

sadly micro transactions are where the industries going.
like them or not, all games next gen will have them in one way or another!
dunno if F2P will be that way forward, and industry standard but its certainly one of the ways.
one way it could really improve things is cheaper games tailoured to what you want.
for instance instead of paying 100 bucks for a MP and SP game pay 30 for each.
i never play games online so why should i have to pay for 80% of the game that im never going to touch?
or break it down even more and let customers choose which maps they like.
instead of buying a game and these are the maps let customers play all of them for free once than let them choose a number of which ones they like and than later they can pay extra for others.
instead of releasing these map packs on day one and forcing people to pay for those, why not let people sacrifice maps on the disk for them?
all about choice.
most important thing though it has to be worth it.
if you start making customers feel like there having to pay for things that should be included in the initial game purchase than were just back to square one.
