Totally Modular

  • Are totally segmented and compartmentalized AAA titles possible?
  • Where does DLC fit into this new paradigm?
  • Will this only be considered if the next-gen consoles fail to stop continued decline?
  • Does in-game purchasing of small items even the playing field or privilege a few?
  • Will this synergistcally work with the renewal of episodic gaming?
