The Playstation 4 already has a strong F2P lineup with multiplayer games like Planetside 2, War Thunder, Blacklight Retribution and Warframe all making their way to the next-generation console shortly and Deep Down adds another unique game to that list.
Blessing or Curse?
While it’s rude to look a gift horse in the mouth, with Capcom’s track record of DLC-on-disc and other gaming blasphemies, it is hard to see how this is going to work out to be a plus for consumers. Personally I am a fan of paying full price and getting the whole game in one package rather than being forced to cough up piecemeal for minor portions of a game. Only time will tell if this is a good move for one of PS4’s most beautiful and highly anticipated titles.
Are you still looking forward to Deep Down in spite of it’s move to F2p? Let us know in the comments below.
