Free has become the entry point for a lot of games on both mobile devices and the computer. If you enjoy the game, you spend money, but it costs nothing to try it. But what about free-to-play on consoles? War Thunder
is on the PlayStation 4
and is looking to the future, but as Gaijin Entertainment
CEO Anton Yudintsev explains
, the problem with a large number of free-to-play games is a matter of polish.
Yudintsev goes on to compare his company's flagship game to Call of Duty
and its record-breaking profits, stating, "We're not the greedy bastards here." He sees a bright future for free-to-play on consoles but also asserts that free developers have to step up to a higher level of refinement, delivering more polished mechanics to get past the initial bias of console gamers. Take a look at the full interview with Yudintsev
for more elaboration on his views of the console makret compared to the PC market.
