F2P Cast: E3 F2P Taken Over by Consoles! (EP 72)
On this week's episode the team returns from E3 tired and somewhat sick. We discuss what info we gleamed from E3 starting with the massive influx of F2P games for consoles. What exactly does the arrival of next-gen platforms mean for Free-to-Play? This question is answered in multiple parts for both Microsoft and Sony consoles. We also talk about the future of virtual reality in gaming. Finally we wrap up our discussion with the spirited reading of viewer responses and more on this week's episode of the Free-to-Play Cast!

I put it to you--this is exactly what you wouldn't buy a console for. It's the exact opposite reason to buy a console.
Got a Da-Bomb for my buddy Cerebral Hunter for going out and buying StarCraft 2 so we can swarm some people.
As for the question of the week.... I wouldn't buy a Xbone or a PS4 just for F2P games even if there are nice ones like World of Tanks or Warframe, but there are other nice B2P mmo games coming out on the next gen consoles, mainly Destiny. Sure buying a Xbone or a PS4 is cheaper than buying a new high end computer outright, but upgrading and keeping it way in front of the consoles is more rewarding for most gamers especialy in the F2P market. Until the Xbone or PS4 has more to offer than my pc ( at least game play or upgradable wise ) I think sticking with the pc is a better choice, unless you really like the console exclusive titles.
Please don't hate, I'm not bashing. I still love the site but think that maybe this show should be changed into something a lot more up Spunk's alley or just dropped but then replaced with something that feels more natural to the hosts.
Da-Bomb for trying though! :)
