Typical EA, trying to get the most money out their customers as possible. Not that I'd actually use my money to get something I could've gotten by working for it anyway.

I don't think I'll stick around if this is the future.

So what he's saying is that... no one has torched EA's headquarters in Sweden with molotovs yet? Meaning that they still have some ways to go before they have to rein in their PR dudes?

i should note that the micro transaction system is not mainly intended for common players like us.
the idea is to make it more easy for game reviewers, the let's play folks and other folks in the social media to get the content, weps, characters, cars, mods, etc, they need to make their films with. with the introduction of the level up system it made things a little more complicated.

of course the content is also available to us but the way it looks now i say it's hardly worth fretting about.

400$ new system and 70$ per game, not including add on purchases?

30$ for a used GameBoy and 10$ for an old game. Hell, 200$ for a 3DSXL and 40$ for a game still sounds better.

G'bye PlayStation, you've been mediocre good to me, but it's time to say goodbye.

What the hell is the point of buying a game only to have to pay more money to complete it. EA proving that the only thing they're motivated by is money. Continuing to exploit everyone. Hope EA go *bleep* themselves up, no wonder people despise them, but even still it doesn't help when there are idiots there prepared to actually pay that. Definately don't agree that people should be able to pay to get a headstart though.

About time major games companies started actually listening to what gamers want instead of trying to continously fleece them.

I remember a time when you unlocked things through gameplay and not through microtransactions. Am I the only one who remembers?

I don't want to be obligated to pay 0.99 - 9.99 for a game I already paid full price for. That's just corporate greed to the maximum degree.

Please go away EA.

Hey, you guys remember cheat codes? Those things that you could use to get stuff in the game or get further in it without having to work at it, that you didn't need to put money directly into the publisher's pocket for the "privilege"?

Yeah, neither can I.

In other news, all future EA games will have (at least) one less purchase. See ya EA, not nice knowing you.

if I have said it once I have said it a hundred times f*cking greed that's what gaming is now

micro transactions They replaced cheat codes with a buy option.Greedy
bastards and how long be for you will have to pay micro transactions for key items /weapons to pass a level or kill a boss or what ever and I don't mean because you can't be bothered to urn them I mean because they ripped items you need from the game like DLCs and make you pay and they wonder why people pirate their sh*t you rip us all off why shouldn't people do the same god I hope EA burns

Always Online DRM only hurts legit users

day 1 & other DLCs that have just been clearly ripped from the game just to rip us off

on disc DLCs proves its been ripped from the game to rip us off

4 hour single player campaigns pure lazy and greedy

games that clearly need up to 6 moths more in development pure lazy and greedy

Imagine how this affects multiplayer gaming as well. For example, COD. They're already fragmenting the community by releasing paid-for map packs, and soon they're releasing new paid-for guns as well that people will be able to use in-game with the non-paying players. Even multiplayer games are going to become pay to win. Despicable.
