Sony keen on free-to-play PSN growth

PlayStation’s digital publishing arm wants developers to pitch free-to-play games for PSN, an executive at the company has said.

Ted Regulski, manager of SCEA Developer Relations, said Sony has changed its philosophy and is now “open to any business model”.

“One thing we’re working on quite a lot is free-to-play,” he said during his GDC talk in San Francisco.

“Some developers say we’ll never allow freemium games on PlayStation but that’s really not the case.”

Regulski pointed out that freemium games, such as Free Realms, already exist on the PlayStation Network, and described the percentage of virtual item purchases as “extremely healthy”.

Develop has lots more information on this story.
