We discussed this on Sundays show, I believe it is a cultural thing personally. The F2P model is not only successful in Asia but accepted as a normal. However in the western cultures we have a hard time understanding how something moving from costing money to basically being free is actually going to make an income so in our eyes it is a failure.
This BTW has been proven in quite a few titles as being far from the truth.
