Yeah, an accelerator. Like in mobile games. That's what the industry needs right there, true innovations!

Damn, I don't think I can buy this game. I really wanted to, but I just won't stand for these types of microtransactions. I really hope gamers can stop this type of movement.

I mean, how could it be considered "okay" to sell a game, and lock off part of its content unless you pay more to unlock it?

solid_snake36561210d ago

These Microtransactions are just an accelerator, you can choose to unlock all of them if you don't want to pay for them.

If this is what stops you from buying a great game, even though this is like 5th they have publicly said microtransactions are for people who don't have time to sink into this game, then i don't think you ever were really planning on buying this at all.

Ozmoses1210d ago

Yeah dude.. don't be discouraged by these totally "optional" microtransactions..

I mean they are there for the people that don't want to earn the MB coins the slow way.. all the currency you can earn in game so you don't have to spend real money.

I guess I should have been more clear, I am surprised by how many disagrees I got.

I fully understand they are optional and just accelerators, But the trend I've seen lately is that the developers nerf all normal progress, making the vanilla game way more "grindy " so that people are more tempted to buy the accelerator. And that is what I disagree with.

Yes I want this game, but if all the reviews Show that the game is impossible to grind out, so people have to buy accelerators, I will pass on it.

Edit: are you all really okay with the developer finding more and more ways in to your pocket, even if it means nerfing the game?

Wow, what greed! Very much looking forward to FOB so hoping this is just a misunderstanding and horribly explained.

The budget for this game surpassed 80mil. How do you expect them to make a profitable return on investment. Companies like ea or Activision I will not support, because they put little to no effort in their product. MGS 5 took years to make and over 80mil.

SnotyTheRocket1210d ago

Yeah, the Developers that work for EA and Activision don't put effort into Battlefield, CoD, Madden, Mirrors Edge, Battlefront, Dragon Age or NHL. Totally. Yeah.
