    The obvious retort surely has to be Nintendo, MS and to a lesser extent sony (as they allow common currencies now) using points for their similar services*. However looking at the "because Facebook prohibits developers on its service from charging lower prices for virtual goods on non-Facebook sites" I can well see facebook having to try dodging a thrown book shaped object.

    *just wishing to mention that various games on the likes of xbox live have micro DLC ranging from pre order bonus DLC turned regular DLC to skins to other token extras and options to pay to have the game unlocked (EA are a big fan of this) or make it somewhat easier via in game item in case someone wanted to accuse there of being a line between DLC and full titles and paying for seeds and such.
