Breathe. That is inaccurate and unofficial. When we are ready to officially announce the pricing, you'll be the 1st to know. Interesting how someone can make up pricing and the whole world jumps on the reality of it.
Here's what people will be paying for when they do use the platform:
1) The license to use the CocoonJS Virtual Machine. The VM offers access to fixes, enhancements and extensions to the HTML5 spec (like acceleration, multichannel audio, haptics, Box2D, etc).
2) The Ludei Extensions - access to native payments, native ad networks, push, analytics, access to cool new devices like the Leap Motion device, etc
3) Unlimited access to the Ludei Cloud - cloud compilations, live updates, cloud storage, analytics storage and delivery, multiplayer, etc
So, you will be paying for a VM license and cloud infrastructure. Consider us AWS mobile gaming.
Additionally, there will be a free component that we believe will cover 80% of users.
So again, do not believe everything you read.
Last point. I've been doing this a long time. We do not expect to make everyone happy with out business model. I've found over time that someone will complain about a business model no matter how fair it is, because either they complain about everything or they believe everything should be free. And they are always the loudest.
BTW - we love Scirra customers. Construct 2 rocks. And watch for our big announcement next week.
