I suppose law of averages comes in to play here, in that there will be people who want that yellow badge. However, will anyone with any sense pay £75 for just some made up things and made up currency? As far as I know there isn't even any solid info on the in game cash shop yet.
Coudln't they just do the old fashioned thing of, you know, selling a boxed game? Maybe an in game cash shop for cosmetics or something? When I heard about Mechwarrior online, I was sort of excited as I love the older mech games, but this sort of monetisation for me is a real turn off, and that's as an adult with the cash to spare.
Your thoughts? I know this could be argued back and forth, but surely there is a better way than this.
