New information has appeared about the free to play title in development at Sony San Diego.
Don't worry guys, it free to play.
I think it's probably a PS3 game
F2P Modnation? Sounds cool, make it cross play between PS4, PS3, and Vita and I'm sold.
I'm surprised no one said Unkarted lol http://fc07.deviantart.net/...
Keep the damn f2p christ
What's wrong with F2P? It's fine as long as the things that can be bought for money aren't going to make someone play better than anyone else, like a car/cart that drives faster and corners better but has no downsides. If instead what you have the option to pay for is just skins for the car/cart or your driver, then that's fine. It's also fine if you can pay or buy the cars with an in-game currency, and the cars/carts aren't better, they just handle and drive differently. It's all about balance and if the devs achieve balance, F2P is fine.
Same with all f2p games, I won't get hyped on any level till I've tried it. Trying it is free so you have nothing to lose.
Nothing to lose unless you're a PC gamer living in China. I expect some have lost their homes over bills generated by "free" to play games ;p
Awesome, still waiting on my most anticipated F2P game of 2014! Where's Planetside?!
Yes. I watch Planetside 2 videos just about every day, thinking about which classes to prioritize as I level up.
Seriously though dude, where is this game on PS4? It was delayed till the first Q of 2014, but uh...were well into the 2nd Q. Hopefully we hear something soon.
Seems cool to hate F2P games here. I personally don't have no problem with them. I like War Thunder, Blacklight, DC Universe, and soon Planetside 2.
I love Tekken Revolution and Ace Combat: Infinity. Really don't understand too why F2P got so many hate in here.
It would be LittlebigPlanet karting and not Modnation racers since LBP is a bigger franchise and they already replaced Modnation with it
saddly true I loved no still love ModNation
We already have LBP kart, we dont need another one :(
Question how do free to play games make money?
Solely on Micro-transactions?
I'm not entirely sure, but micro-t is one of the most common ways, it's possible that they have some form of ad money coming in.
Am i the only one who seems to really be concerned that Sony seems to be a bit to much into F2P and indies? I mean honestly it just seems like they are kind of side tracked with being a bit TOO supportive of them. F2P is good for us but they are never these amazing titles.
Considering they have more announced AAAs in development and out in the market ATM, excluding Wii U and PC, I say why not? F2P and and Indies are like icing on the cake. Can never have too many games now can we buddy?
Well I saw this coming, There are a slew of free to play games on PS3 and PS4 and with LBP becoming Free to Play, the next game in the Play create share genre being MNR, it only makes sense. I loved MNR on PS3 the Vita and PSP versions missed the mark, It'll be interesting to see if this one is a PS4 or PS3/vita release.. I love how flexible sony's business model has opened up to cater small games and everything in between, Gamers benefit because they can enjoy a vast library of games and not have to pay a dime! especially those that aren't subscribed to PS+(as crazy as that sounds). Sony is seeing how profitable WarThunder and Warframe have been on PS4 so now they are putting great weight behind t with their own IPs. MNR, LBP and Deep Down.
Is anyone else getting ad links in comments? I have never really been a fan of F2P. Some games, like Guild Wars 2 and The Secret World are cool because they aren't subscription based, you just buy the game. Most completely F2P games rely on users buying content like vanity items and with so many F2P games coming out I'm sure most will struggle to break even. I'd rather buy a game for $60.
I'd rather play a good game. Doesn't matter what label people want to put on it, retail, indie, free to play, it doesn't matter. A lot of supposed gamers all of a sudden conveniently forgot about the piles of excrement on store shelves at *any* given time, but free to play and indie games are all bad. Yea freakin right.
I wonder if Sony is in some way trying to compensate for charging to play online by bringing a lot of f2p games that don't require that online payment.
I think it's just a money making scheme. I have spent real money in F2P games and it adds up fast. They offer some really nice gear or unlimited use tools and such and before you know it, you've spent what you would've for a retail game. Just think of people spending $2 here and there, it'll add up to way more than $60 pretty fast. On the other hand, there are people who don't spend money on such items. I never wanted to but I broke down and bought some stuff.
Most people don't buy anything, so as a money making scheme it leaves a lot to be desired. I buy things if I like the game enough and feel the devs deserve some money from me. I have a strong feeling I'll be buying some stuff for this game.
