Tread Softly EA, Because You Tread On Our Dreams

EA recently announced that all their future titles would include some form of micro-transaction inclusion. The act of paying a small fee for in-game content is not exactly new but with growing controversy over ‘pay-to-win’ options ruining many a PC-based MMO, using the system as a standard revenue stream is a bold move; one that won’t go over well with everyone.

How bad is it though? The system has seen success in Free-to-Play (F2P) MMORPGs such as Rift and DC Universe Online and people generally seem to be happy with having the option. However, EA are going to have to be very careful in how they go about implementing this new direction and here’s why (EA, FarmVille, Industry, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Sod em' if they think that people want to pay for cheat code and charge for them that's up to them... I will boycot every single game they produce with microtransactions included. There are plenty of other good developers with huge libraries of games to choose from as an alternative. If they wanna make their games free to play, that's a different story.
