Mark Pacini Asks Daily Reaction: Have You Ever Been Offended by Microtransactions?

During PAX Prime 2013, PSLS got to go behind closed doors to check out the latest build from Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate on the Vita, and while there Mark Pacini took a moment to see what Daily Reaction’s Seb and Dan thought about microtransactions. - PSLS (Android, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, Casual games, EA, iPad, iPhone, Plants Vs Zombies 2, PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

Interesting to see that microtransactions even piss devs off.

I think that they would be, considering the model is slowly degenerating the public's perception on the status quo.

Pisses off dev, yes
Pisses off publishers, no

I seen microtransaction ruin too many games. Sadly too many company make an unbalanced cash shop and then wonder why part of their userbase leaves them.

He's had his face munched by a herbivorous zombie. Tis why he's choking the f@@k out of said zombie!

And yes microtransactions take the piss.

I think that's Kaz Hirai's chin.

Microtransactions i think can be done well, but only if they stay true to their name
I think of
Borderlands 2 has skins and heads
LBP has skins
PS all stars has skins and mascots
Little, minor things like this are fine IMO
