Real money in video games

  • Allegedly Free Game: A game is free to download, but makes it so that you have to spend money in order to unlock stuff faster and easier.
  • Downloadable Content
  • Freemium: There's a free version with some features, and a premium version with all the bells and whistles (but it costs money).
  • Freemium Timer
  • Microtransactions
  • Premium Currency: Many games often make these most easily acquired by purchasing with real money.
  • Real Money Trade: Real money is used to purchase in-game currency or items. Some games allow this, but most of them are done illegitimately via a third party.
