MP1st - It looks like PopCap HD will soon be offering Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare players the option to purchase in-game Sticker Packs with real life money.
Some stuff does take forever to get on its own. And, I mean, hey, the game offers more-or-less the same amount of content that some other MP-only shooters do, but at only $30-$40. Plus, all the DLC is free. THIS how you do microtransactions, if you're going to do it.
Hopefully more developers follow this route if they are going to include microtransactions of some sort into their game.
I'd rather have no microtransactions and paid DLC (but a proper DLC).
In this type of game i actually prefer the microtransactions instead of paid for dlc, keeps the game feeling more alive in all new maps, modes and such as everyone has access to it.
I disagree. IMO microtransactions and free DLC is much better in this type of game. Paid DLC just fractures the player base. This way everyone can play with everyone else, and you have the option of speeding up your progression if you choose.
All you need to do is play often and save your in-game currency to buy what you want. I mostly play welcome mode anyway, so I save for and bought packs that don't offer any advantage in that mode. But O some times venture in to the other mode to test out my new abilities and looks. Very nice game either way
im completely against microtransactions and f2p, why would anyone want that crap when they already payed 40-60$ for the game. this is like buying cheat codes which is stupid to begin with.
How about a pc release!! My son is asking about that at least once a week and I can't blame him. Should at least have a release date by now.
Should be 6 to 9 months from the X1 release.
All they've said is Summer/Spring. :|
That's my point. They have the release set for Spring 2014, and it's spring. We still have no set release date yet. :(
Doesn't surprised me. It's EA.
They said at launch there wouldn't be any microtransactions but they would look at adding them later. It doesn't affect the game tho, they made it easier to earn coins, I usually get like 27000 after 2 matches of garden and graveyards anyways.
