RDR2.com comments on the prospect of microtransactions existing in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Did anyone really think it would be otherwise??
Folks here didn't agree with me buying games with MTs,all the folks that are dying to buy this game knowing this I wonder are they still going to buy.
Yeah but everyone here bought and loved Uncharted 4 and TLOU. So their rants are short sighted. People whinge about microtransactions like they are cancerous but you get a lot of content in videogames these days without having to shell extra for stuff, depending on how they are implemented. Look at Titanfall 2 for a good example oh how cosmetic only items ensure free dlc Hey if people despise microttansactions so much then vote with your wallet. I'm buying RDR day one. Don't worry about folks judging you for buying games with MTs . So many have sheep mentality just joining the mob for no reason. If you like the game and want to get it and don't give a toss about MTs then go ahead.
I think the best compromise is to buy the games you want used so none of your money goes to the publisher you don't want to support.
For loot boxes/MT I think Overwatch did a good job, even when people weren't getting enough good drops(bought or earned) the community complained and they changed it up a bit. I still think this system is cancer and should be dropped, people need to stop supporting games that does this shit, especially single player games that have loot boxes.... sigh If this does turn out to have MT in a poorly done fashion then no I won't play this. If it does turn out to have MT at all, it will probably not be a memorable or as enjoyable game for me.
You're absolutely right! I have several games now in my library that I play that have loot boxes & MTs that I enjoy playing & I haven't spent one dime especially Shadow of War.When RDR-2 releases I know all these folks saying that BS about MT's are going to buy the game day one.
And it's practically confirmed that I will be buying this second hand in a year or two, f**k you R*.
Hopefully they stay in the multiplayer part only.
Meh. I'm building tolerance to not buying games that i wanted to buy. I don't care if i get this or not now.
Pretty much. I used to have an itch to play the latest games but for a few years now, i've been loosing interest. Now all I game is indie games. Some of them are weird but I find them fun. Odd lol
Damn, I thought I was the only one. Thank god there are still people with brains.
I never play online, just like I never touched GTA V online, so R* can f**k off with their MTs.
Yup same here. played the story mode. Finished it and moved onto the next game.
After the success of GTA 5 and the further success of it's online, they obviously were going to add microtransactions. If they work similar to GTA 5, I don't see the problem. It's like the shark cards, not once have I felt compelled to buy one yet I can still log on and enjoy GTAO whenever I want and they are adding new stuff at a decent pace. My only regret with how Rockstar handled GTA 5 is the lack of single player DLC, hopefully RDR 2 won't suffer from that.
Only way I won't buy it is if the microtransactions are in the single player portion of the game. Never played GTA V online and I won't play RDR 2 online either for the exact same reason - Not Supporting BS Microtransactions
Who cares. I'll have my fun with the game than toss it aside when im bored with it. I don't understand how someone can play the same game for a long period of time anyway. The longest I've played the same game was probably witcher 3 because it has so much to do but even than, i got bored with it after a month.
I'm still buying this game. I won't be buying any MTs though.
I think advocating to buy 'used' is a sensible compromise at this point in time, id you must buy games with MT's. However, the industry is doing it's best to stamp out physical copies. Once MT's are fully established as the main revenue stream for games, they'll be after ensuring you can't buy 'used'. It's not rocket science, companies want money now, what happens to the industry as a consequence doesn't concern them in the slightest.
Most likely going to just be like gta v shark cards, those things make them so much money they dont need to do anything else
Almost ALL big game releases will feature microtransactions in some form or another... If you can't co-exist with microtransactions by either accepting them and occasionally purchasing them or simply ignoring them... You might as well exit gaming...
Rockstar, keep doing this. You will loose your reputation while Guerrilla Games continues increasing their reputation for due to their community delivery. Horizon Zero 2 will bring Guerrilla Games the stature you already declined with the inclusions of MICROTRANSACTIONS. Rockstar, remember in this industry satisfaction is the greatest capital for continuous success. If you exploit your customers, you will be forgotten and replaced by another company willing to give what players want. Simple.
