In his latest blog post, John explains to his readers that, due to piracy, the PC gaming market is badly suffering.
John then makes it clear that developers can overcome this by producing free-to-play games. “This makes a hell of a lot of sense to me. If your customers can get it for free using torrents anyways, why not make the game free?” He says.
However, John doesn’t believe that developers should run their business on a non-for-profit basis. He suggests that they should provide free gaming torrents for people to download, while offering further content for pay.
“Make the game free, and if you want more content, you can pay a little extra for whatever you want. So a game will end up costing what it is worth to you. If you try something out and don’t like it, you don’t have to pay anything. If you kind of like it, you can pay 5 dollars or we to unlock some new content,” John adds.
Taking the concept to the extreme, John says that players who really like a game can throw as much money at it as they want, thus opening access to new levels, weapons and characters.
While the previous market for free-to-play games is poor, John explains that developers are slowly becoming interested in the option and that it could see a surge in the coming years.
To conclude his latest post, John provides a link for a free-to-play game that he is really looking forward to. End of Nations is currently still in its Beta phase, and will soon be available for free play and download.
