Microtransactions will be in every game, says EA

COO Peter Moore says in five to 10 years, all titles will allow players to install a client for free, then charge for add-ons; $60 games may survive. (EA, Industry, Peter Moore)

I hope not...
... I just want to pay a normal amount of money for a game and just get the complete experience.

And thus have access to the same experience as everyone else is getting!

Very simple.

I agree. microtransactions should only be allowed on MMO and farm sims. Other than that, don't bring that crap to full fledge games. It just a horrible idea.

Microtransactions are great, as long as they're handled appropriately.

All DLC is really a microtransaction. With that said basically ALL games have microtransactions attached to them currently.

This is why ea is hated. They actually talk as if they expect gamers to be openly impressed with their ambitions to squeeze more money out of gaming. What is mind boggling, is that EA is so delussional that they cant understand just how much this translates to greed in the eyes of gamers. EA will fail. Other than Tetris, most of their other games are geared towards core gamers (ironically), but no real gamer would put up with that micro transaction crap. RIP to EA, Activision and Capcom, people will say enough is enough, and will leave you when real developers like Valve, naughty dog, etc continue to treat us with respect while you dont. Lol good luck with that greedy attitude :D

I don't doubt it at the rate we're heading. I just hope that developers figure out how to properly use them in games without creating a disadvantage for non-payers.

Take Valve's example of the Mann Co. Store.

Im thinking more like lol, seems fair to me, and you have to work a little to unlock champions and stuff

I don't mind this one bit, as long as the microtransactions are only in games that are free.

Here's a new jingle for EA. "another reason to say, FUCK EA"

Seriously though if EA keep making these cash grabbing statements/actions theyre going to alienate their core audience.

Haven't you already done enough EA?

I accept microtransactions only if it's a free MMO, or if it replaces the monthly fees. Otherwise, hell no.
