In this age of freemium games, developers and console companies have to keep changing how they create and publish games. Instead of copy selling a few games each year, the new trend is to provide free games first and monetizing afterwards.


It’s a huge challenge for many PS4 game developers, especially those that thrive by selling copies of their games. But it’s also an excellent opportunity for these companies to catch up with Fortnite, PUBG and Candy Crash, a few free games that make hundreds of millions of dollars by selling in-game items.

Free Games are Money Makers

For a long time, PS4 was home to single or duo player games that relied on LAN to let friends play together. You only paid once for the titles and they would remain once for life. But that’s all in the past. The advent of free online multiplayer games is changing the industry rapidly.

Games now either provide new games for free or offer paid passes whereby the...

Whatever type of gaming it is that you enjoy, it all began in the same way: with rudimentary forms of card and board games. It was these early incarnations that began to whet the human appetite for entertainment, and which became ever more complex and advanced as civilizations became less focused on survival and more committed to developing pleasurable pastimes to occupy themselves.

That’s why those who enjoy gaming will often find this extends far beyond their usual niche into other more diverse areas of play. Equally focused on delivering challenge and risk to get our adrenaline pumping, you’re likely to discover that if you’re someone who can spend hours on your PlayStation, you’ll also enjoy slots and/or other forms of online gambling.

So what about when developers decide to marry the two? Give these four titles a go and you’re sure to find yourself doubly immersed.
