    While definitely obscene as crap, isn't this just the microtransactions we always knew would happen?

    Also: The only one that sounds content-related is "First Contact Pack" which is free. The Online Pass will (probably) just be the "Project 10 dollars" that only affects people who buy it second-hand.

    But, you know, its EA so let's villify them.

    PSN: Gundato
    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    I assume you're implying that the monolithic group called Gamers, as in those who play games, is somehow responsible, as a whole, for these customer-abusive practices. I'm also detecting a bit of anger in your statement.

    Are you not a gamer? Because if you're not, why do you care? And if you are, don't blame yourself, self-hatred is bad man.

    Jesus Christ, why are you still here? You're not funny, you're not clever and you've never contributed to a thread in your life. Justify your existence to me.

    Destructoid says yes, Eurogamer says no. If not, I'm curious to see what the microtransactions will be.

    They will keep doing this because people will keep paying for it. If it wasn't profitable they wouldn't have done it. Sad but true.

    Enemies of gaming, as far as the eye can see.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    I'm sorry, weren't you the guy who signed off computer games half a dozen times over the course of your tenure on RPS forums?

    No, the microtransactions (that is, stuff that you can buy more than once) seem to be these three:


    • Epic Weapon & Resource Pack - $2.99
    • Ultra Weapon & Resource Pack - $1.99
    • Resource Pack - $0.99


    This is almost exactly the system that's used by Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer. So that still leaves 8 other Day-1 DLC packs (7 paid), which is a bit silly.

    Loved ds1&2, skipping this one because they will willfully piss about with the balance and grinding to make the "dlc" more attractive. Nope, EA you just lost money from me.

    And because it'll sell, it's obviously what the people want.

    I'm beginning to feel less bad about being behind on games (barely 1/3rd way through Dishonored).

    I still have to finish DS1 and DS2. By the time I get around to DS3 I can pick up the GOTY in a sale. The future of gaming is being slightly in the past.

    Yep when the emphasis of game production changes from making a good game to making a vehicle for extracting as much money as possible from customers.

    Theres only one defence, don't buy.
