How do you guys think a market place would go for future Battlefield titles? Would it be welcome?
When you look at games that utilise these services they're still going strong. Is it the game or the market place that helps the developer succeed?
The top three games on steam charts CSGO, DOTA, PubG all use the market place and are still making tons of money and still being supported.
CSGO released in 2012 and on average has 700k active players, DOTA was 2013 and has about 500k active, PubG 350k
Just the other day playing csgo I won an AK47 that I sold for $26. It's not a lot of money but it goes back into my steam wallet or csgo, I buy what I want and valve takes a cut. It's a win win for everyone. And as for support, when there's a problem or bug in csgo it's patched within days (if not sooner) because they can still pay their staff.
And as far as earnings go, some players have inventories that run into hundreds of thousands of dollars just from trading (see link below).
So do you think there's room for a market place in Battlefield? A workshop for players to design skins for distribution? Fancy hats maybe.. lol jk about the hats
A market place, I know it's something I'd like to see.
Steam charts -
CSGO inventories large enough to buy a home $$ -
Not sure if this is posted in the right place now that the off topic section is gone.
