PS4 exclusive game Deep Down, which heavily focuses on online features, will feature a free-to-play model when it releases at some point next year.

They’re also planning an open beta in February, near the launch of the PS4 in Japan. It appears to be very focused towards Eastern markets but only time will tell.
It should get more people to play the game, but if it’s heavily focused on purchases then it might not be worth bothering with at all. The game is looking promising, with a recent video from Sony’s pre-TGS conference showing some gameplay. You can see that below.
Let’s hope they get they get it right.
