I wonder if the PS4 will have a built-in coin slot?

Sev1311d ago

If it's this kind of coinslot I'm okay with it.

... in unrelated news. EA game sales continue to fall.

Whilst I am not over the moon about the idea I can tolerate micro transactions as long as they don't become borderline necessary. I don't want to see games built around micro transactions (unless it is f2p).

They always start small at first...

Which is why I am worried, drizzom :-(

This is pure greed for EA to do with full priced retail software

They can say it won't affect the core game experience all they want.

They're crazy if they think we're going to believe that they aren't withholding content in order to monetize it for microtransactions. Plus like Sev said below me, at the very least you shouldn't have to deal with in-game advertising after you already bought the damn game.

I hate to sound like an old fart, but Jesus Christ. I remember when games had a wealth of content to unlock after their campaigns.

Sev1311d ago

Ugh, I hate microtransactions. Not because they want to make money, but because I'm constantly being asked if I want to buy them. At least that's how it is in iOS games. If I'm playing a game, I don't want to be advertised to the entire time.

This is why I can't stand EA.

dbjj120881311d ago

They don't even make sense and really it's such a waste to buy the micro-transactions in Dead Space 3.

ftwrthtx1311d ago

This seems to be the way of the future. If it means more free-to-play games, I'm all for it.

classic2001311d ago (Edited 1311d ago )

No this means paying $60 for a game and then having t pay another $5 to buy some stuff in the world that would have been free.

Better weapon $5
Better boots $5
Access to the best cars $5

Ea got to be creating some outstanding games to be able to pull this off, free to play is a different story than micro transaction single player games.

Wenis1311d ago

It won't mean more free to play games. It will mean more $60 games with half the content cut out to be sold for another $30.

MagneticDeath21311d ago

Cosmetic purchases dont bother me but if a games pay to win it will.

Trago13371311d ago

And this is why i dont support EA. Unless they bring another Alice game, Mirrors edge, or Bad company 3, they aren't seeing my money.
