Anthem may not be monetized at launch

It will probably be built around monetization anyway, wether they choose to go all out from the start or what a little while to sucker people in.

You could be right. Though recently EA has been pushing out some of the older execs, making room for younger and more progressive people to get the company back on track.

I'm not going to hold my breath but we could, maybe, see an improvement from them. They've done it before, back in 07-09. We'll see.

If so it’ll be a huge thing where EA will make out it’s for the players so at a first glance it’ll look like an amazing victory not realising they’ll be in later

Ok I'll be avoiding Anthem then, EA can go kiss my a$$. I'll be avoiding all EA games now.

EA if you're gonna screw us just do it from the beginning. I'd hate that if I bought Anthem at launch, and then they tricked everyone and snuck microtransactions in later. I don't wanna support that trash.

I can imagine the marketing push will be "and no microtransactions at launch*" with an emphasis on "at launch" but will avoid any questions about MTs in the future.

The other popular sales pitch (actually more popular) is: we have no PLANS to put Micro transactions in.

Good point because usually 90% of sales come in the first 80 days. Most people will be in then they will screw people. At least 50% will have sold in the first week. EA is just like the Devil.
