The power of greed and milking the consumer to death, the power of greed and how some people are stupid sheep when it comes to their wallet and buying loot boxes and paying for those microtransactions. Even with the $10 hike up in price the quality control will not improve and that customer will be pissed they wasted that cash on a piece of shit game.

Microtransactions were, supposedly, put in place to stop the price of the base game from rising.
Microtransactions bring in a whole lot of money for many titles, so I can't wait to see the price hike, followed by new and interesting ways to spill out into the now already more expensive games.

More and more broken games. More and more "games as a service", more and more "roadmaps". All asking for retail at launch. You can freaking preorder the season pass of games that haven't even released.

The games industry really has become a greed-fest. I miss being a kid.

I'd rather spend the 10 bucks on a sub like Gamepass or even PSnow, that gives me access to hundreds of games.
Hell, even EA Access is a better investment to use the 10 extra bucks on than getting the exact same games the devs would have made, but charged you 10 more dollars for.
