Sony Online Entertainment has announced a new first-person shooter title with Bullet Run, which is planned to be a free-to-play online PC game.
thanks sony for the F2P! vid http://youtu.be/jdXDeo0_Bak http://www.mmorpg.com/discu...
Sony's obsession with FPS's and MS attempt to take over the jrpg market (and killing it by the way) have been the most annoying aspect of the current generation.... I'll be sure to wait a while before picking up my next console and see what everyone is doing first.
PC counts as a generation of console now...?
MS killing the JRPG market? Elaborate please...
Dude you got it the other way around. Most people I know play only FPS's on 360 while for PS3 the genres are widespread. You'll find more people playing JRPGs on there than 360.
is a Acony games and sony is just publishing it
Like you would be complaining if it weren't Sony. It's a persistent multiplayer game; how many persistent multiplayer shooters are already out and successful? Not many. So give it a chance before you shoot down the latest Sony published game.
What does this being a Sony published game have to do with my comment?
HM... at least sony is announcing a variety of games plus its a free to play. U cannot beat free.
I agree. I can't remember the last time anything on PC of this caliber has been free to play. /s
Team Fortress 2 APB Reloaded Firefall Casus Belli Black Light Retribution Not yet released: Warface Ghost Recon Online Hawken
he was being sarcastic, Asgaro. And you forgot Tribes: Ascend
Lol, my bad.
Nice one Sony
You'd rather anything having to do with Sony crashes and burns. I mean really, what the hell does Mario have to do with a free-to-play FPS?
just report hi and move on, jealousy is a bad thing, you have to let him somehow deal with it.
Hmm... I don't know for sure but this looks like a stealth edit.
Is this PC only or is it PS3 too? And if it is on both, will it allow cross play?
PC only. At least, at this point it is. Going cross-platform wouldn't be a terrible thing, IMHO.
I can see sony making more f2p pc games. "Smedley also says that “DCUO’s playerbase is growing at 6% a day,” adding that 47% of the boosted profits are coming from the PC version. The rest are from the PS3 version." http://www.pcgamer.com/2011... lol this might confuse some ps3 players. "Sony exclusives for pc? O_o"
What about Planetside 2? That's actually being developed internally at SOE.
Extreme! The logo + game show theme makes it sorta like Xgames event.
I was actually thinking back to the 1990 with 'SmashTV'.
bulletrun sounds cool.
It looks alright and all but why compete with their other much more interesting f2p shooter, Dust 514. Sony, I no understand you
Because they're on different platforms?
Like panda said Dust514 is only on PS3 and Bulletrun is on PC.
Lol Sony sponsoring another shooter. Before they do anything I need to see the release of The Agency. That would have been a great game.
At least it's on PC, for a moment it sounded ridiculous that Sony was pumping out an IP every 3 seconds lol (not that it would've been a bad thing anyway). I'll definitely give this a try once it comes out (Planetside nostalgia).
I dont think Sony will release a F2P on PS3 until after Dust. If Dust fails they wont bother but if it succeeds then they'll jump on the F2P market. Would love to see more F2P games for consoles!
the game would have to be horrible to fail even as a f2p game. and from what i saw dust wont fail its not a simple fps made for kids its a mmofps shitload of skills u have to pay ingame money for EVERYTHING u want and its made from CCP these guys knows their jobs
Another FPS booooorrring
hope this game goes pc only we dont need more fps craps or give it to the bots fanboys they would play any fps trash m$ throw them around
You do realize that there have only been Halo, Shadowrun, and Perfect Dark published by MS that were FPS's this generation... dont you?
