Sony is quickly establishing their next-gen console as a viable platform for developers to publish Free-to-Play titles onto. So far War Thunder, Blacklight Retribution, DC Universe Online, and the PS3 exclusive Dust514 have all been confirmed for the Playstation 4.

Now two more games have been added to the PS4’s F2P lineup. SOE’s massive MMOFPS Planetside 2 and Digital Extreme’s hack-and-slash space ninja MMO Warframe have both been confirmed for release on Sony’s latest console.

In terms of how they will play, both devs have confirmed their games will retain the same feel as their PC counterparts although obviously they will be adapted to use a more controller friendly interface. SOE did mention however, that the PS4 version of Planetside 2 will utilize its own servers separate from the PC version. This makes sense seeing as it’s been proven PC players have quicker reflexes and better accuracy in shooters than their console brethren. Digital Extremes has yet to confirm on any split but, it would make sense to allow both groups to co-exist on the same server given the fact that Warframe is focused on PvE and in third-person. Making it both easier to control on consoles and non competitive.

What game would you most like to see ported to consoles?

  1. omg how poor and sad are most of you 200 isent mach 300 isent 1000 isent ….

    if it sounds mach to you than just give up

  2. Lol in the artcicle “This makes sense seeing as itโ€™s been proven PC players have quicker reflexes and better accuracy in shooters than their console brethren” Someones a little game racist maybe? Might be true but shesh.

  3. I would like to see NeverWinter hit PS4. the controll scheme seems like it would work very well. Also, I’m glad to see WarFrame hitting PS5. I checked out the PC version and think it’s amazing, I’m just an oddball who prefers controllers for games like this… yeah, I’m asking to be flamed here but since I won’t be back to see the responses, don’t waste everyone elses time lol. Yeah, I’m a console gamer and thus prefer controllers over mouse and keyboard in most cases.

  4. I think it will really benefit warframe by going on the PS4 especially if they have cross servers since more people is always better.

  5. Lol you never all played PS2 ? There is limited draw distance so more ppl around you lower distance of players there are…

  6. Considering Planet Side is not tactical but situational, more players on systems is logical move. Example, if you shoot top of a hill with 3 men on a group of 15, the 3 should have success as top hill advantage is key in gun fights. Or if you duck behind rocks and boulders etc…In this game, you will notce lots of hills and emtpy space. The hill tops mean nothing, and no boulders dot the land scape. This means the side that wins is the side that has the most log ons and ust pushes forward.
    It is a hidden mechanic, but that is the core of this game. Another illusion is the weapons themselves. All are lasers. Even if it looks like bullet handeling gun, it is all star wars. If you mount a 50 cal truck mounted gun, and shoot a man on an ATV, the ATV is considered a vehicle there fore is “armor”, so even if you shoot him in the head, the armor meter must fall first. This takes a 50 cal about 2 reloads to destroy a man on an ATV…that my friends is called SITUATIONAL combat, not tactical. That is just “who logged in and grabbed what armor first” is the winner. It is well hidden, but any one with half a brain will notice what a fake plastic ride this game is.
    Flying is a joke. Most pilots are transport pilots and if you do the math, they wait at the gates for a ride. A shuttle that carries 15 people sitting in a base full of AFKers, about every 10 min an AFKER awakens and plays (I know, I was this pilot before). So you sit in the ship saying “go go go” and the pilot says “no, I need to fill up”…15 spots x 10min afks = 150 minuetes of sitting on the ground.
    Snipers used and abused. HAcks everywhere. IT is all about situation. One tile I soloed 50% of a planet because every one was in one battle far off. Then more people logged in and the battle sort of balanced out, that is situational. The situation calls for X and the result is Y. SONY like to play mind games making you think you are playing a tactical game by introducing more and different laser guns, and images. On the loading screen there is an image of a guy shooting in the cockpit of a galaxy ship hanging on the front and killing the pilot. That never happens in game.
    Sony has an official video of ATVS launching off a ramp and landing on a galaxy to hitch a ride. That will never happen in game… This game is so full of lies and poor fps mechanics…Even base capping is just situational, as long as more log ins are there, more floods poor in to cap and rinse and repeat the bases. NO tactic like sniping, or assaulting carefully wins the day. IT is about grabbing ATV, surviving 5O cals to the head, and just hopping 50 other people on your tea are logged in to back you up… Thanks to cross counsle this game can continue to have log ins and the illusion of “tactical FPS”. Sorry, fail. Im sticking with my prefered War Sim FPS thanks. But it is a cute kiddie pool for the starter FPS kids.

    • I honestly think all the garbage your giving is a bunch of bullshit. The wall of text is just garbage to me. PS2 is a great game in my experience and there is plenty of tactical gameplay in the works if you don’t avoid the active battles and go straight head to head with your team together. Its a lot of fun and yes, situational EPIC moments happen here and there. I pity you lonely gamer, probably you’ve never experience any epic moments so I pity you.

      • @rofl Sorry man but really, I’ve played Planetside and 95% of all fights are like cows running into a meatgrinder.

        It’s a sad, sad mess.

        Even if 5% of the game does have depth and tactical moments, even if people like you thought there was something more to the game, it doesn’t address what the rest of us saw.

        It is an uncoordinated mess of lasers. Getting a huge group of random people to play together is practically impossible, and it was already practically impossible in games of 10v10 in other games.

        You can’t design a game with tactical play in mind without realizing most people are logging in and running into the firefight without a care in the world. Maybe this game works for those who have voice chat and Clan Support, but for the average gamer it is a mess.

        They needed to spend WAY more time developing the game in a way that forced Tactical Combat instead of just “hoping” it would happen.

        • in other words Planetside 2 is better off playing with groups or clans, its no good to people who play alone, there were a lot of battles where the side with a well coordinated team(even fewer) wins all the time even if the other side have a lot more people who are uncoordinated individuals. sheer numbers alone doesn’t decide the winning factor. I don’t recommend playing this game if you intend to play alone, your going to have tough time.

          • so true. ps2 is more of a fun game when you’re playing with groups or clans. i have experience of playing alone and in a group and i have to say it is better to be in a group, only then is it a tactical game. but then you get those noobs that just jump into the action headfirst without knowing anyone so you can’t do anything about that. there shall always be noobs XD

  7. Planetside 2 is pretty much dead on PC anyways. It needs the players from PS4. There should be a Cross-Platform Server.

    It sounds like they are ditching PC and trying to make the game popular on PS4.

    • Not that I blame them, of course. The more money they make the better for them and the more time spent on improving the game. I hope they get a good amount of people on PS4 to play.

      • OMG NO RLY?

        Wow can you even read? I said there needs to be an option for it in the form of a Cross-Platform SERVER.

        As in, I am well aware they haven’t announced any plans for it, so, I’m voicing my opinion. Otherwise, just shut-down the PC version.

        Also, I’ve seen Developers say “This won’t happen” only to have it happen later. So… yeah. Don’t believe everything you read, even if someone says the decision is final.

        People can and do change their minds.

  8. Wow well they were looking forward if this is going to happen already but just . Wow. I still can’t imagine how it looks ..
