Sony San Diego has been working on the upcoming PS4 exclusive Kill Strain, and while the game will be free to play, the studio is keen on promising that it won't be pay to win. In addition to that, everything that is not MLB the Show at Sony San Diego is now focusing on games as a service.

Obviously the studio will say they will try to not make the game pay to win. I don't get why people talk about these things to the people making the game. It's not like studios will outright say "Yeah it's pay to win"

Same with Capcom

Same with NCSoft

Same with former SOE with H1Z1

It's like people rush to be the first to say something negative in some articles. Not everything is pay to win or just a studio trying to pull a fast one for a quick buck. Some examples I can think of are Warframe and DC Universe. You could play those and have a great experience and not have to pay one cent unless you want to.

Not interested in baseball or games as a service.

Well gw2 got around it(pay2win) by eliminating the gear treadmill and instead relying on models and skins. Ascended armor (the highest stat tier) can only be crafted by the player using it because it is account bound...some of the base materials are limited to 1 crafted per day...meaning rich players cant just buy gold and get it right away...they have to wait just as long as it would take someone to gather the mats the right way.

Point is possible to make a free2play game without making it buy2play.

Tribes, Smite League of Legends, Airmech, Dota, TF2... etc etc. All have free to play models that work.

First of all sony is perfect.

The game looks fun so hopefully they're truthful about it not being pay to win.

Its pay to win. H1z1 wasn't supposed to be pay to win either.

Different studios dude...

H1Z1 is not pay to win. You pay for a supply drop that everyone else is alerted to, and if they kill you for it they get the loot.

You are lying, you do not know if it is "pay to win". You are making things up based on hatred of Sony/PS, not out of any logic or reason.

Same industry and same mother company
