The Russian invasion: Meet the man bringing free-to-play to Xbox

EuroGamer: "For Kislyi the video game business is war. It's war at every level, in fact, from the virtual battlefields upon which players skirmish daily in his company's most successful game, World of Tanks, to this, the grim theatre of E3, the video game convention where we meet in a stuffy, branded bunker. For the past three years Kislyi has commanded the Wargaming.net campaign to many victories. This much is evident in the numbers: today his game boasts 60 million registered players on PC. But officers like Kislyi are never satisfied unless gaining new ground. Now he is ready to take the war to a new front as World of Tanks prepares to invade a console." (Victor Kislyi, World of Tanks, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Its Free After Pay.

Yes its a contradiction

Honestly why can't MS let you play these games just XBL Silver?

The new model of F2P is Free to Paying customers.
HammadTheBeast  +   794d ago

free 2 play after you pay for XBL, what a joke

F2p multiplayer is free on PS4. That's good...but you're telling me you're only going to play F2P games?

Sony may not put anything behind a paywall, but they did put the most important aspect behind it. Multiplayer for all other games. No one is going to to buy a PS4 just to watch Netflix for free.

Most people upgrading will be gamers, thus they'll want to play multiplayer, thus they'll have to pay, thus making everything not being behind a paywall moot. But keep hanging on to that...

You act as if Netflix is the only thing PS4 has.
Roper316  +   794d ago
I am currently a PS+ member because Sony proved the value of the service before adding the MP to it. And no matter how you try to manipulate it at the end of the day MS is making you pay for something that is free and you try to justify it for them. I kind of feel sorry for you with that way of thinking.

keyword MOST that means not all so those few can enjoy even if they have no intrest in ps plus so everybody wins if u want ps plus or not n i like that about sony
HammadTheBeast  +   794d ago
For at least a couple months after launch I'm not playing MP, I'm just playing single-player, PLANETSIDE 2, DCUO, Blacklight, I might even check out Warframe.

So it's great that Netflix and other apps, as well as cross-game chat are free of charge.

Would be nice if I didn't have to pay for live to view Netflix. I would have continued to use my 360 next gen as a dvd player/Netflix player for one of my non-gaming televisions.

However I cannot use Netflix without paying for live so now it will sit in a closet and instead my Ps3 gets the privilege to still be relevant for many years as my non gaming 3d bluRay/ DVD / Netflix player!

As a xbl subscriber for the past 6 years I see PS+ as a better deal anyway. $10 cheaper, you get "free" game(s)each month and some other goodies like store discount. You know what M$ offered me for all those years as a valued customer ? 20 msp for my birthday, 1% discount and Crackdown game this month that I could get for a dollar...

You are paying for the service, not for the game
christocolus  +   794d ago
How else would you play an online multipayer game without xbox live? Isn't sony doing the same thing?....smh.
AnteCash  +   794d ago
Youn dont need to have Plus to play F2P games online on ps4, its the same as on pc , you download and start playing.
Timesplitter14  +   794d ago
Kayant  +   794d ago
The only problem is that it's not really F2P on Xbox like Lukree puts it. It's Pay-for-F2P.
