Re: "Free" section on the stores

Mar 15, 2013

I don’t think Sony will implement a free section anytime soon, as it would defeat the purpose of getting you to browse through all the items to find the free ones.  What would be nice, however is if they randomly made items free for limited periods.  That would get everyone motivated to browse through the store more.  A kind of treasure hunt from time to time.

Julio-ATL, I could not agree more. You're right on point.

They have them in HK, JP & EU actually. So, it wouldnt be bad.
Ps: I've recently been having fun in the NA PS store also lately searching sections by FREE, ended up finding stuff I missed in the past. ^_^

I personally wouldn't want that as I feel that having to look for free items encourages potential shoppers to browse the stores. If every store had a free tile, or the Mall had a store that offered free items, yhat may mean less window shopping (browsing) and thus less revenue. Maybe even some really cool items may be overlooked because they weren't free...

 

But that's up to the individual Developers. And presentation can mean a lot.

 

That's my personal opinion and not an argument.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

I personally wouldn't mind a "Free" section in the shops. Then again, I don't mind not having it either. Remember, you can always visit any of the PSH fan sites that categorize these items making them easier to find. A couple are listed below:

NA is the only region where I dont see alot of those. Even EU has them I think. I hope we do get on sooner or later.

Have you linked this thread to the Monthly Suggestion thread for PS home, it might be a good idea, cause this is a very good idea...

NA has always been revenues first, service last. I don't see it happening. Even the NEW tab includes several old stuff that was released for months ago.
