|NO, JUST F***ING NO! |
fp2 in mp I don't mind, but in sp?
"You cannot shoot arrows, please purchase the arrows upgrade now to continue"
Eventually f2p will be abused...and this is now the 3 strike for crytek for me (first the mess crysis 2 made with its bugs/trophies, then its stance on engine power over the unreal!).
I may of bought crysis 1 from the psn just to see the story, but screw it, no more support from me if they think they'll try free to play single player games, I don't even buy dlc packs for all sp games I've played...
Besides, I like my games complete on arrival, the dlc thing I'm still wary of...I call boycott but I know I'll have little support/others to lean on -_-

|If gaming turned to this, I'd have to just kepe my PS3 and play all the games I need. I will never use F2P because eventually it ends up being way more expensive than a retail game. |

|I'd support this idea, if I couldn't see just how badly abused this would be. |
If this was for MP stuff only, then I'd say brilliant, but free to play single player is just going to be hell with add-ons and micro transactions.
Yes if it's Mp, AND ONLY if it's not a Pay-to-Win Model

|Seems legit. Most new ideas are quite a turn off, the new DMC and such included, but given time it'll probably turn out to be a better idea than the flak it's getting now. |

|I could not careless if this is for Multiplayer or not the fact is you are not playing a free to play game because money is still involved, the way some company's abuse DLC should tell you money to play shit i mean free to play would be abused also. Because you would be paying small amounts at a time it would not seem much, but by the end you would have payed more than a normal game which you do not have in your hands (Disc copy). And not only that if you have the money you'll be able to buy better guns etc, so it will come down too who ever spends the most wins not a kind of game i would want to play. |

|For every game there's a solution? Here's one... charge one solid fee for a single player experience. Its worked for 25+ years. |
This isn't a bad idea for something optional and what some people spend money on anyway, like multiplayer, but never a single player experience. If you feel that way about YOUR single player experiences, Crytek, you won't have my support.
Should only be a matter of time before you buy a game from EA and finish level one only to find out you have to pay additional costs for levels 2 through 5, etc. And, heck, charge real money for ammo, weapons and an ending while you're at it.
I exaggerate, of course, but not much... just look at WB forcing Rocksteady to lock out a portion of the single player content in Arkham City or Capcom making CyberConnect2 charge for the "true ending" to Asura's Wrath.

|@12 yeah bit like psn is free lol but now there's passes on everything so how is psn free if you need an online pass.someone will say but you get the online pass free when you buy a game new but how is that free you had to pay the full amount for the game or if you lend the game off your mate or family then you have to pay £10 or whatever just for the pass. |

|Everyone complaining is ignorant. You don't even know how its going to work yet. All you idiots would rather spend $110 for the full BF3 game or $100+ for a full COD game. It doesn't even matter the game. EVERY Game now is $60 + DLC. Complain all you want the game is free. Your choice if you buy something or not. I gaurantee you won't spend nearly as much money on a F2P then any other retail game. |

|So far, every free2play game I've seen sucked. SUCKED. Other than that, it's just a matter of personal preference. I prefer paying one price and then having the game, but I know in advance what I pay and what I get for it. I don't know and I don't care if free2play is actually cheaper or more expensive in the long run. |
The thing about free2play is, they want to make money. So why switch from classic to f2p? Only makes sense if they expect to make more money that way. How do they get you to pay more money? They MUST (!) create the game in such a way that you will only enjoy it or enjoy it fully if you invest at least as much as the game would've costed the classic way.
So there you go. The game is only free as long as you stick with the less enjoyable version. Why would I want a version that's not fun? Even for free, why play that? So you must invest money in order to turn the game into what equals a classically designed "full" game.
The difference here is that with classical payment, you have a certain limit to what the game costs you. (DLC not considered.) With f2p, you can still put a limit for yourself, but that doesn't mean there's a limit to the game developors, they can bring the price as high as they think enough people will be willing to pay.
Overall, the games won't be free, call'em free to play as long as you want. What you get for free is a very limited demo version, but guess what, demo's have been free for a while now ...
@17: "I gaurantee you won't spend nearly as much money on a F2P then any other retail game." Correct, because I won't spend anything on a F2P.

|Right now, I'm quite neutral to this idea. It could be a really good idea if not abused. For example, say Skyrim adapted the f2p model. The game itself will be free, but the level cap is only up to 30 and some items and quests are locked out. You can try the game and if you like the game a lot, you can pay money (somewhere like $30-$60) to unlock all the contents of the game (of course it shouldn't exceed the price of a ful retail game) and if you don't like it, you don't have to pay anything and can still play the game up to the point where you get bored or maxed out. If this is the path the companies are going to take, I see no harm in doing so and I'd glady support it to try out new, different games. |
However, if it's like many stated where you have to pay $1 to reload and stuff, then... though I don't really think it's going to be that bad.
Oh well, time to read the "EA CEO John Riccitiello suggests charging Battlefield players a dollar to reload" article, LOL. XD

|Just a perfect example of greedy people trying to abuse gamers for their money. "Oh, why not charge gamers for every little thing in our game? It's not like they'll say 'screw this I'm going to hang out with my friends' since they have none." |
Crytek's basically butt-hurt over used games sales, so they think copying F2P is going to help them prevent used games entirely. F2P may work for certain games like RTS or MMO or even smaller games on mobile platforms, but this is AAA shooters we're talking about! If you even try to nickel-and-dime gamers who play shooters, you'll just lose out to CoD.
But in the end, since Crytek has started this talk, and now we hear EA talking about this too, I'll assume it's a greed thing. It's not about making a good game anymore, but about how much profit the game rakes in. Maybe we gamers should buck up, stop buying games, and cause the next video game crash to remind them who're really the ones in charge.

|@20 Love the Workoholics reference. BUTT-Hurt! haha |
And you are correct it ALL abou the money. Any business is ALL about the money. That's how business works. Nothing wrong with it. If you don't like it then don't buy it. No on is forcing anyone to play a EA or Crytek game.
Like I said previously everyone is complaining about something they don't even know anything about. Wait until they release the details before complaining.
I personally think it's an awesome idea. It's change and change is usually good. For anything at least you have different options then only purchasing retail games for $60. Jeeez no one ever happy. When PS3 came out and everyone knew games were going to be $60 everyone complained about that. Now people are complaining about F2P games. They rather pay $110 for their full BF3 game then give a shot at F2P game wher you have no clue how much you will end up paying.

|@21 You're acting like F2P is something gamers are unfamiliar with, and that's not necessarily true. Casuals maybe, but a gamer worth their salt knows about microtransactions and F2P games. Hell, we even know how F2P shooters are going to be. Perfect example since we are on Crytek/EA is Battlefield Play4Free. It's an online FPS where you get very basic equipment and you pretty much have to pay just to use other classes, pay if you want to use more than one weapon (and pay even more if you don't want that weapon to be timed to disappear), pay for your equipment, pay to heal, etc. The money adds up quickly, and that's just for online. When it comes to Crytek's future F2P games, they aren't going to hand you a full solo campaign; they'll undoubtedly make you pay if you want the entire campaign. |
Also, you can't say people paid $110 for the 'full' BF3 when they only paid $60 (also assuming someone didn't get the copy new and on sale). Different from F2P content, BF3's expansions are completely new content being produced post-game release. In F2P, the content is usually there from the start, tempting you to spend your money. By looking at BF:P4F and comparing it with the content you get in BF3 (access to all classes, the number of weapons, gadgets, equipment, solo campaign and cooperative missions), BF3 would be a great deal at only $60.
So in short, maybe you should actually do some research on F2P games that are already on the market before coming on here and proclaiming that people have no idea what they are talking about and are complaining for no reason. Saying "It's change and change is usually good" shows a certain naivete about putting blind trust in something you don't understand.

|I can easily say people paid $110 for the full BF3 game because I did. I preorder purchased it for $60 and bought BF Premium $50. Hunderd of thousands of people did the same. EA has already bosted 800k in sales in Premium the first two weeks. Out of that 800k majority paid $60 for the game. That's just the first 2 weeks. YOu know it will sell well over a million copies of Premium. |
You are merliy speculating on Cryteks F2P future games. Not saying it won't be like the current games on market but it's not proven nor given.

If you believe the future is Free-to-play, then I believe you won't mind if I download Crysis 1 and 2 for free, right? Then thank you for the idea.
