How did MS manage to cheat on its gamers: F2P games aren't free!

F2p works with ryse, you can buy gold with cash or win it in arena. Its like you get paid to play arena, lol.


KI is the only other f2p game. The article attacks ms because thats what all the hipsters do, they know theyll get hits. Sony is a fraction of the size of ms, its hip to support sony and a foriegn company. The reality is ps4 has way more f2p games than x1 will.

You kids must be new to how f2p works. They aren't charities. This model has been around on PC for years. Even on playstation. Get a grip with reality.

Why are people obsessed with this? Just don't buy the content. F2P is a concept born of a market that is willing to buy their way through a game. Don't be mad at business trying to make money, that's what they do.


lol this guy is defending micro transactions.


Yes because he is smart enough to understand economics. When you grow up you will understand that developers don't work for free. Most of them actually want to make money.

This model has been around for years on pc and smart phones and yes even on consoles. This is nothing new. From Maple Story to PS Home. Guess what, nothing is wrong with Sony charging people for extra clothes on Home. Its capitalism, make a smart consumer decision and decide what its worth to you.

I have no problem with Free 2 Play, Free 2 Pay, Pay 2 Win or any variation thereof. They aren't for me, but I'm reasonable enough to know the world doesn't revolve around me either. Internet whiners gonna whine though.

I agree with this. Marvel Heroes for instance i think is a good f2p game. You can avoid spending money on it and still have fun and aren't gimped. You can even unlock other characters if you are patient enough. Pay 2 win is annoying but otherwise i don't see why consumers can't take responsibilities for their own choices. Decide what something is worth to you.

I just spend nearly $20 buying Gambit on marvel and for dlc thats kind of expensive but i have put hours into that game already for free using HawkEye.

And that's the future of gaming as envisioned by MS

An all digital future is readily available for PS4. If you wish to download your entire library digitally, you can and its without the anti-consumer bullcrap.
