Activision Nets Over $4 Billion a Year in Microtransactions

Activision has mentioned that in-game microtransactions generate the publisher over $4 billion a year.

The story is too old to be commented.

Damn! No brakes on that train son!

Yeah I didn’t care for a while and was even part of the problem. It’s gotten well out of hand though and has become a serious hindrance to gaming, and I certainly won’t be spending any more on micro transactions.

This news won't stop shills like Andrea Renee screaming, "They need micro-transactions to feed the developers' families, guys!!!" That was in regards to FIFA, a game that easily sells 20m+ yearly

Bet you anything that these billions of revenue are never given to the families.

Wow, and I contribute exactly.......$0 to that figure.

Don’t be mad we can spend money on games we want to.

You are spending REAL money on FAKE money in a video game that you paid $60 for.
At that point, you might as well brag about donating money to billion dollar corporations.

The problem is, the more money people spend on microtransactions, the fewer full game experiences we'll get.

We're not mad. We just think people who spend alot of money on them are stupid.

Dragonscale30d ago

And you sir are part of the problem lol.

You know, sometimes I sit and wonder who falls for all this micro-transaction nonsense, but thanks to you, I can wonder no more. #moremoneythansense.

Just let this sink in, they generate $4 billion extra, from games you have ALREADY paid for. It's not acceptable, especially when they are omitting content from their games.
