First sensible thing EA has done this year although it still is stupid. Mind you, didn't Dead Space 3 have 11 launch day DLC?

Probably just a bunch of PR bullshit.

In all fairness, there are micro-transaction models that are very good. League of Legends, Guild Wars 2, and Team Fortress spring immediately to mind.

I'm pretty sure you've posted a few times about TF2 being one of your favourite games and also saying that it was free-to-play, bar people buying stupid hats.

ive mentioned a few times that hats are silly, but never a rant. the only thing i rant about in tf2 would be random crits being a load of bullshit, and spies being cowards and useless team members.

"Rant" was a bit of an exaggeration but I didn't realise you'd be so pedantic about it. Never mind.

Jorgenson added: "I am terribly sorry that you all misunderstood me and misquoted me so horrendously, and hope everyone in the media promptly take steps to improve the accuracy of their reporting in the future, to avoid this rampant sensationalism".

EA keeps talking, but all I hear is bullshit. I wonder what they'll come up with next when they get caught trying to pull the wool over peoples' eyes after this.

Yea, there are but they're also made with micro-transactions in mind from the start. EA is trying to shove them into places they don't belong.
