“Game publishers are benefiting from the transformation of video games from stand-alone packaged media to connected entertainment services”, Ross said.

Couple weeks ago I downloaded the app Need for Speed No Limits by Electronic Arts, for free.
Usually this game would be about $60 but cars run off fuel and you start with 10 fuel and races cost fuel. You can buy gold in the game to buy parts for the cars as upgrades or wait for the fuel to refill. You can play the game freely, and get decently far without using real money…but who is going to share on social media that “hey I reached level 40” while others have bought their way to level 100 and have all the new cars fully upgraded.
