The emergence of both the PS4 and Xbox One as equivalents to mid-tier PC gaming rigs, as well PC like architectures has offered both platforms the ability to embrace aspects of PC gaming that really are cool. Since the launch of the PS4 there have been several free-to-play titles like “Warframe”, “Blacklight Retribution”, “DC Universe Online” and others. Games that are generally aimed at a PC audience that do not ask for money upfront, but rather instead offer in game microtransactions which ask players to purchase items that make their gaming experience better. This could be in the form of upgraded armor, weapons, vehicles, or rare items. In some cases both platforms have the ability to allow wannabe developers who create mods for PC games to have those mods migrate over to their console counterpart. Obviously it’s up to how developer create Free-to-play games that make them that or Pay-to-play games. The great thing is that there are many examples of games using this business model that really push gaming forward & deserve a place at our console tables.
