Spending Time: The Creeping Horror of Microtransactions in Full Priced Games

IncGamers' Peter Parrish takes a look at the devious business of adding extra charges to full priced games.

"Of all the pernicious publisher practices out there, ‘microtransactions’ in games you’ve already paid full price for are surely the worst. In fact let’s dispense with the term ‘microtransactions’ altogether, as it seems to have been designed by committee to make the concept sound as inoffensive as possible. Using the word only legitimises that deception. Most of the time they are anything but micro." (Dead Space 3, EA, PC)
