OPM: Here’s this week’s PS4 o’clock in its new Friday morning slot. Today I’m looking at PS4 free-to-play games (thanks to Stewart Pospischil for the suggestion). So that’s Warframe, DC Universe Online, Blacklight Retribution and War Thunder.
Best feature ever getting to play online without PS plus when F2P now that true F2P
Exactly, I love how much content is outside of PS+. Sony could easily get away with requiring PS+ for everything. PS+ is an amazing deal and you get so much Day 1 that there is no way to be truly upset over paying for PS+. I just brought a PS Vita and I have 15 great full fledged games for it for free. I love my PS Vita because of that, now I can buy games at my leisure because of that. Despite how amazing PS+ is you can do so much without it. For me that is the sign of an amazing company that I want to support wholeheartedly and until Sony changes their policies I will be all for them.
'PS+ is an amazing deal and you get so much Day 1 that there is no way to be truly upset over paying for PS+.' True if you own a PS3, not so true for PS4. obviously need to wait for a back catalogue to build first but at present, unsurprisingly...its pretty crap. :)
The system has only been out for a month, there are not enough big budget games to give any of them away. Resogun and Contrast are pretty good though.
Look at me I want a bubble
here have a negative bubble :)
Have another negative bubble.
i don't think PS gets enough recognition for allowing F2P games on the system. it would be easy to lock everything behind a paywall (like some others), but instead they decided to give gamers as many options as possible and not gouge them every chance they get. PS+ isn't even need....awesome.
'i don't think PS gets enough recognition for allowing F2P games on the system.' That isn't Sony's decision, it's the devs. It makes no sense to hide a game funded by micro-transactions behind a pay wall.
world of tanks on xbox 360 requires a gold subscription.. That blows...
the point is, it's great that sony have allowed the F2P model on PS at all. "It makes no sense to hide a game funded by micro-transactions behind a pay wall." tell that to MS. even games like World of Tanks and Killer Instinct (which is technically F2P) have microtransaction and still require Live to play online. sony made sure F2P games are just that....Free to Play. no gimmicks, no trickery...free is free. i love the model and the option, even if i'm not crazy about all the games.
'tell that to MS. even games like World of Tanks and Killer Instinct (which is technically F2P) have microtransaction and still require Live to play online.' This is the point i'm making, what makes you think that is Microsoft's decision? The developers can choose to put it behind PS+ if they wish, they haven't. Look it up.
why would devs make a F2P game then decide to put it behind MS's paywall that they would see no money from? how does that logic work? its MS and Sony decision on what to lock behind a paywall. what devs want to charge for their games is a different argument.
War Thunder is only available in EU at the moment I believe.
Warframe is a free to play game, in my opinion it's the best PS4 game out right now. Resogun comes second, the only downside are Warframe's micro transactions but that is expected?
It just got updated and added a ton of new features too. Far and above my favorite next gen title. Go go robo space ninjas!!!!
warframe looks like a true next-gen game..beautiful graphics.
It looks the business but the frame rate drops are horrendous. Very obvious if you use a burst fire rifles. Cool game though, I've put more time into that than anything else, even BF4 which I had to paid for.
