Computer games will become free as companies take the pirates on, according to an industry expert.

David Perry, who is famous for his Enter the Matrix, Earthworm Jim and Messiah games said that the next big thing for the industry would be free games. He said that it was the best way to deal with pirates who would not be bothered if they are competing with a free product.
