For long time there's also been discussion on Slashdot and elsewhere of game publisher's like EA preference to unlimited sequels (EA Sports series anyone?). There's David Braben's (one of creators of first classic 3D space sim "Elite" and it's sequels and also popular Raspberry PI board/computer) commentary to that.
