Have to make up them development costs somehow.

Assassins Creed is like the 3rd best selling video game franchise in the entire industry. They make a pretty penny every year off this milked franchise.

A majority of revenue from COD Ghoats DLC was from gun camos and voice packs like the stupid cannabis skin and snoop Dogg announcer packs. It showed that even annual release games can milk microtransactions.

What? Selling the game makes up for the development costs. Not to mention that the game is shit across all platforms which means they didn't spend a lot of money in the game in the first place.

Yep, the vocal minority of ignorant people is always louder than the majority of gamers that are spending more of their time actually enjoying the games.

I would be willing to bet that the majority of those that are bashing Unity the most haven't even played the game.

I'm loving the game so far. The gameplay is great and the game is gorgeous and runs just fine on my PC.

^^You have a point Thunderbird86. We should all play the game before rendering judgement.

HOWEVER, given all the negative press Ubisoft has received this year:

Blatant downgrading of Watch Dogs



Pre-release announcement of DLC

Milking to the point where there are TWO major AC releases in ONE year

Unity needed to be a masterpiece! From what we are seeing in the reviews, it doesn't seem like they delivered that.

Have you even played the game? I don't see where all this hate is coming from. On Xbox One, I've had a steady framerate the entire time so for except for 2 times where the game froze for a bit and the framerate dropped pretty low. Is that mildly annoying when it happens? Yeah it is. But the framerate has been fine for the remaining 10 hours I've been playing so I don't see the problem. It's a massive game, expecting absolute perfection is ridiculous. It's not like Skyrim on the PS3 or anything. From what people have been saying, you'd think Ubisoft sold an unplayable game which is just not true at all.

I'll just get it on my PC and use trainers to unlock them all an even more for free

I don't wanna be 'that guy' but I hate it when games do this. It just pells cash cow and it's cheap.

Even Microsoft have eased off on the micro-transactions since launch, but Ubisoft must have missed the part where everyone hates seeing them.

I was tempted to try this out. Reading about transactions.. I am no longer tempted.

Only an idiot would spend money on crappy upgrades in a milked to death franchise.

Muzikguy1413d ago

And this is why I won't be buying this game. More importantly, why I've stopped playing AC games altogether. I understand you can just play the game and get the stuff, but this is getting ridiculous IMO
