Stop selling $60 Games on Free-To-Play Model

onPause writes:

Micro or even Macro transactions are absolutely fantastic in Free-To-Play games but when it comes to a $60 game we should be getting everything in the box with a reasonable effort put in as a time for reward cycle that is manageable for a normal person that has a job, life and responsibilities. (Forza Motorsport 5, Gran Turismo 6, PS3, PS4, Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I feel like we are giving publishers a get out of jail free card.

I don't mind if games choose f2p like warframe and blacklight retribution as they may think they will make more money off those who love the game. But if u sell me a $60 game and ask $50 for a season pass and then slow down progression and force microtransactions...I will never buy ur game...and no one else should either. Its a terrible practice and needs to b squashed immediately!

Finally there is something every gamer will agree.

Plus, why are people calling DLC micro-transactions? I feel that there is a misuse of therm.
They are definitely not the same thing.
DLC - for games you buy.
MT - for F2P.

I already avoid games with season-passes and day one DLC. MT is just going to make it worse.
