When 343i announced the addition of microtransactions to Halo 5: Guardians, plenty of people took to the internet in disgust. The negative publicity was so great in fact, that 343i actually had to step in and write a post to explain what was going on. I know exactly what you’re thinking, “What the hell are they doing? There’s no way I’m paying! It will ruin the game balance!” Well actually, there’s plenty of positives to this announcement if you put your fanboy rage aside and think about it.
