Sick to my stomach. I'll never support this.

Hey you might be sick but people like @moldy love this kinda stuff, he'll defend it for days...

He only defends it because its the way Microsoft are clearly going forward with the last 3 years now.

It’s f****** manipulative. They basically want you to “forget” about microtransactions while you play the game. Everything you’re buying costs real money but you’re not being “interrupted”.

It’s getting out of hand because there haven’t been fair trade investigations and legal regulations applied to this entire concept.

This is a good display of true nature behind some of these businesses. They’ve literally been following regulations not out of ethical and moral value, but because they were forced to by regulation. Now that there’s an unregulated economic concept, they’re going wild with it.

It needs to stop.

You know gaming is close to collapsing when these types of actions are practiced. Guys collect as many physical copies of games as possible and avoid supporting companies that do this.

They ruined Destiny and now CoD, though ide argue that that happened awhile ago. I love the Destiny IP, but I think I’ll soend my money elsewhere from now on.

They are probably already doing this and are just filing a patent so other companies can't do the same thing.

Some journalists seem to think Activision needs a patent before they can implement this stuff, they don't.

Well there is just no way they would be able to get away with the game just automatically withdrawing funds without some sort of permission beforehand.
