Halo 4 could include microtransactions

Halo 4 could become the latest game to introduce microtransactions. 343 Industries executive producer Dan Ayoub said that they are currently “looking at” adding cosmetic game items for a small fee similar to those available in GOW: Judgement, Tomb Raider, Black Ops 2 and other new releases. (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

I wish these things were just unlockables. :/ I'm tired of this...

Micro-transactions/DLC is such a rip off. I didn't pay $60 to gain access to purchase things that should have been included in the game. You want to milk a franchise keep putting out sequels that are fun and innovative, don't nickel and dime us to death.

With all the game 343 gave us in Halo 4 for $60; they should be able to do what they want:

Campaign
Campaign co-op 2-4 players
Multiplayer
Spartan Ops
Spartan Ops co-op 2-4 players 50 stages
Spartan Ops movies
Forge Mode
Forward Unto Dawn Movie

Now, seriously, what developer offered that much content for $60?

Lightbox.

All DLC for Starhawk was free. ^_^

Also, I'd like to add Media Molecule (LBP 1/2), Insomniac (Mainly Resistance 2), Sucker Punch (inFamous 2), Rockstar (GTA IV/RDR), Bethesda (All Elder Scrolls games and Fallout 3), and Avalanche (Just Cause 2).

They all packed in TOOOOOONS of stuff to do for $60.

After the mess that was Halo 4 Multiplayer, I just can't find it in myself to keep playing the series /:

Coming from one of the biggest Halo fans out there, and I can say the MP was a massive disappointment. I was actually amazed with the campaign, loved every minute. The MP I played for about a week. Soooo let down. I live in Australia, and we get no dedicated servers. Why does only the U.S get a good deal out of Xbox and everyone else gets nothing?

Oh well, I won't forget the way I have been treated by MS when the new consoles go on sale. I buy XBL gold, get no servers. Wow.

I wish they didn't have terrible multiplayer maps.
I feel like they're too prideful to bring back any of the Bungie era maps, but the news honestly are just awful and the players suffer.
Absolutely no memorable maps, and only two big team maps that are even remotely fun.

Dear 343i, if you really want to sell us stuff then sell us new maps, new modes, and maybe some add on missions. Thanks. Ugly tiger stripes for guns is stupid and GoWJ charged way too much for them.
