Analog Assault Episode 59: Games as a Service vs. Traditional Pay-to-play

Recorded on Thursday, March 7, 2019.


With the popularity of games developed and released as a service, we are taking this week to discuss what we like and dislike about this model.


We are seeing an increase in the number of games as a service, but we have also experienced some shaky launches and other issues with recent releases. Does the new model encourage developers to release half-finished products, or will games as a service represent the future of gaming?
