The monetizing of games has been discussed a lot in the industry in the recent years and there's a huge shift (at least for MMORPGs) from the traditional payment models to the F2P + ingame purchase. Starting with asia MMORPGs which are often F2P + ingame purchase, swapping over to western MMORPGs (DND, Mittleearth etc.) , and taking ofter other types of games like action rpgs (dialbo III, ok it is actual pay + ingame real money trading) or fps (TF2).

An other indication of a shift might be, that the retail market is really shrinking, though here digital retribution,mobile market and lacking new console generation could be other reasons too.

You can follow a lot of this discussion on gamasutra. Personally I thing, that this is not the end and the game industry is really transforming at the moment, therefore it is hard to guess how it will look like in the next years.
