^This, and when your game is selling as good as you think it should be, or want it to, you don't give it away for free. The fact that it was free on PS+ and not GWG says a lot. Bungie pretty much made the XB brand, so it's no surprise Destiny does so well on XB.
Or adding games onto PS+/GwG are just part of the marketing deals the companies make, like Destiny 2 on PS4 and Battlefield 1 on Xbox. BF1 just went to GwG a couple days ago though so wouldn’t impact this list. No doubt you’d see D2 on the PS4 list if it weren’t given away “free”.
Possibly. More likely however, D2 hasn't been doing so hot overall, so a freebie is a decent idea to try and gain some momentum. Just like how a bunch of Battlefront freebies came about during/after the Battlefront 2 debacle, we've now seen D2 freebies do to it's issues, and BF1 freebies do to the BFV controversy. BF1 dlc expansions have been popping up for free on PS+ for quite a while now, and premium pass was free recently, or still is, on PS+.
PS4 has at least twice as many consoles out there, yet PS4 is only 57% of the Destiny console population, while XB1 is 43%.
