User review aggregation platform Player XP adopts freemium model

User review aggregation platform Player XP adopts freemium model

Inspired by the free-to-play model used by the bulk of the games it analyses, user review aggregation platform Player XP has made its data free to access for all developers.

Any user can now access a base level of content for free, but will be charged for additional data, new features and new territories.

Free for all

Billed as version 2 of the platform, other changes include more sophisticated AI and machine learning techniques to isolate the constructive feedback and a new customer satisfaction scoring system.

This allows developers to compare the contentment of their players directly to that of another game, via the all-new Player XP ranking.

"We’re very keen to open the platform up to every developer, no matter what budget they might have, and we believe by opening up the platform in this way we have removed a large barrier to entry," Hertzian CEO Garry Barter told PocketGamer.biz.

Developers can now sign up for free insights into their user reviews on the Player XP website.
