    Sony should advertise F2P launch games heavily.

    What do you guys think?
    I think everyone loves freebies and to alot of parents at home seeing these "Free To Play" titles this Christmas could shift alot of peoples minds onto PS4 over XB1.

    DC : Universe Online
    Warframe
    Planetside 2
    Driveclub*

    *Requires PS+

    Do it Sony!!

    surprised they haven't tbh.

    Planetside 2 especially has very good marketing potential. "Thousands of players on one map", "Craft your own Soldier", "Massive vehicular warfare"...."Free".....im not even a marketing oriented kind of person and i could go on all day :/

    I get why they can't 'market' other F2P games as they get nothing in return.

    But seeing as they own the IP for planetside, i feel its a missed opportunity that they've not exploited its marketability...

    Yeah this is something that needs to be exploited more as a selling point. By the way, you forgot Deep Down and DUST 514 as PS4 F2P games. :P

    Yeah I've said the same thing before.

    There has been next to no noise on Planetside 2 from them...its a launch game, and its their OWN FUCKING IP.

    honestly i dont wanna see WoT on ps4. wargaming is shitty developer, that made great turn-based strategies but after WoT success they turned in to the crap!! We have War Tunder and later in this year they will show their variation of Wot, without all this plasmacannon weapons and nano armor

    You're right. Sony should definitely advertise F2P games more.

    Sony should advertise their games period. I cant remember the last time i saw a commercial for a Sony game. I saw one for the Last of Us sometime in the beginning of summer i think, but i cant remember if that was in front of a youtube video or on tv.... probably youtube..... am i the only person who remembers the internet without commercials? i miss those days....

    But yeah, seriously Sony absolutely sucks when i t comes to advertising. The guys over at IGN from Beyond! nailed it on the head when they were speaking about Sony's Advertising problems when it came to Playstation All Stars. That games commercial had zero gameplay footage, and just some dude standing in a dark alley with a controller. What the hell was that commercial about? nobody that didnt already know what that game was would have been able to figure that out. I know they just changed marketing companies or whatever it was, but they almost never advertise their games unless its God of War or Uncharted. Neither of which have been announced for the PS4. Everytime i see a game commercial for a multiplatform game it always ends with a green xbox logo. Sony has to put an end to that.

    Not always. Over the past several months I've been seeing some multiplat commercials begin and end with PS3 logos including GTAV. But yeah Sony does need to bring back the type of marketing blitz that we saw in the PS2 days.

    Free to Play for consoles will be the end of gaming for me. These games are not really free to play. It's still a video game business that still makes you pay for the game, just not in the sense you expect. Good free to play games that are not browser-based are hard to come by. Don't think for a second that Planetside 2 and Warframe are anything but the exceptions of this unforgiving law.

    I know its not a good thing most of the time, but having 2 of the (what you seem to admit) better ones at launch is surely a thing to shout about no?

    I totally agree, the fact that I can go pick up the box and have a bunch of games to play day 1 for free is HUGE! and they should be talking about that.

    First impressions for the mass market audience are, unfortunately, critical.

    With Free 2 play games spend a hell of a lot of time in Beta. Maybe they will carry out a beta phase on PS4, mainly downloaded and played by the hardcore gamer anyway, regardless of marketing spend.

    When it's cooked for full release, the marketing push will begin. Besides word of mouth/share button/YouTube + twitch streams/20 people on your friends list or Facebook with Planetside 2 under their name, could be all the marketing that's necessary?

    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    Look at the marketing potential!



    the above was a random out in the wild battle! look what became of it!

    on a side note, i really like the distance you're able to shoot...kind puts all the recent closed environment FPS's to shame....also, that tracer fire!

    That would be a perfect TV ad. Just show that trailer and say play it for free on PS4. 'nuff said.

    I agree. I think they should show people games that can't be played anywhere else. That is Sony's strong point, they have genuinely exclusive games. There's a reason why i'm buying a PS4 to compliment my PC.

    No point them showing a game that has been out for over a year already

    edit: What I mean is they should show the actual retail games and then be like "Oh, you like that meat? Check out this F2P gravy"

    This would affect sales of games Like Watch Dogs and Killzone though if Little Timmy finds there is free games we will not care about the paid games and just download everything free sad but true

    As long as little Timmy learns to die like a man without talking smack about "yo momma", I welcome him to the world of PLANETSIDE DEUX.
