Tekken Revolution coming to your PS3, for free

Joining Dead or Alive Five Ultimate in kicking off a new trend of free-to-play fighting games is Tekken Revolution – which will be hitting the PSN later this week. Coming exclusively to the PlayStation 3, this free game is something “you asked for.”

There’s no word on just how it’ll be monetised – but my guess is a bunch of paid-for characters, costumes and stages. Characters will apparently be able to be levelled up, like a pseudo RPG, so perhaps microtransactions will help them level faster.

So why the PS3, and not Microsoft’s Xbox 360? Probably because of Microsoft’s odd policies regarding free-to-play games on their ecosystem. Don’t try asking Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada – who had this to say to somebody asking that very question on Twitter.

“Ask Microsoft yourself. I already asked them about free to play of the console last year.”

    This looks like a Free to Play, Pay to Win game to me.

            That was a surreal moment, but it is freaky that it can happen!! Maybe that is what happened to FoxHound, he might not even know someone is commenting in his name… (Or rather I hope so, because he can be very ridiculous on all the XBONE articles)

      I think we need to try it first before that. I play loads of f2p games and oddly very few of them is pay to win.

    One of my fave franchises that just went down the drain…It’s unfortunate they chose the arcadey route instead of a more realistic approach which they were well set up for…Nobody should pay for this any longer so I welcome this news…
