Jetpack Joyride is one of the first to usher in a free-to-play era on the PlayStation Network. These types of games are funded completely by in-game microtransactions that can enhance the experience. While it’s too early to tell if this will become a big trend on consoles like the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U in 2013, it’s sure nice to see that the barriers to free-to-play titles on these consoles is starting to crumble.
