Facebook To Make Credits Mandatory

Of interesting note to all gamers is this article today from TechCrunch:

"Facebook has confirmed that it is indeed making Facebook Credits mandatory for Games, with the rule going into effect on July 1 2011. Facebook says that Credits will be the exclusive way for users to get their ‘real money’ into a game, but developers are still allowed to keep their own in-game currencies (FarmBucks, FishPoints, whatever). For example, Zynga can charge you 90 Facebook Credits for 75 CityCash in CityVille."

Very interesting news that may have an impact on in game pricing and what is available from Zynga in the market.
