F2P games green-lit for PlayStation Vita

The thriving free-to-play monetisation model is coming to PlayStation Vita, a Sony executive has said.

Chris Norden, a senior developer at SCEA, yesterday met attendees at an industry event in Texas to explain Sony’s policy.

"You are free to explore whatever business model you want,” he said during his speaker session at GDC Online.You’ll have to talk to your account manager and say ‘here’s my idea and here’s what I want to do’, but yes, you’re allowed to [release free-to-play games]," Norden said, as quoted by Gamasutra.

Norden also revealed that retail Vita games are allowed to launch simultaneously on the PlayStation Network.
