The lights are on
Namco Bandai has announced that the next entry in its high-flying arcade-style dogfighting series Ace Combat is going free-to-play. Ace Combat Infinity will be out this fall exclusively on PlayStation 3.
The title takes place in the near future and the campaign mode pits players against the series' trademark super weapons. A cooperative multiplayer mode and 4-on-4 competitive play are both included. There is no detail yet about which elements will be monetized.

Brb, buying a PS3
I think this is pretty sweet. I'll get free tanks on xbox 360 and then free jets on PS3.
Seems like it could be interesting, if it does the free-to-play model right. Games like Tekken Revolution are an example of free-to-play going wrong on the PS3.
In Tekken Revolution, you are limited to the amount of fights you can do per day, unless you pay for more, you can pay to unlock characters, and characters can be upgraded in power, which can be bought as well. Overall, the combination of all these things makes it a really unbalanced figher.
I also heard that they were supposed to bring a free-to-play version of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate on PS3. I heard that you would have access to all of the modes, but only have access to a few of the fighters, unless you pay for it. I think most people would be willing to pay for the modes and maps, instead of paying for the characters.
Sorry, I went a little of topic on this post.
Another great series going the wrong direction. All i want to do is pay $60 for a game and have a single play experience. I don't want to be forced into playing Multi-player and have to grind 40+hrs to unlock anything. **** you microtransactions and Free-To-Play
Free to play eh? I'm intrigued. I'll have to check this out.
free see new ace combat infinity
see free when open PSN when maybe
