“We won’t be aggressive” still means, we will be...

lonewolf10932d ago

Only time will tell, going by the past CDPR have been one of the best devs/publishers for gamers, but anything can happen with a new MP title and MT's.

It's CDPR...We will get an MT free, meaty single player with confirmed expansions down the road, while the MP component will be a separate thing with MTs.

As for the MTs being aggressive, let's see how it turns out; personally speaking of the SP part is MT free, I couldn't care less what they do with the MP.

That said, we can at least give them the benefit the doubt for now considering their consumer friendly record.

There's no way you would know that. CDPR have an amazing track record and I seriously doubt they would be very consumer unfriendly about it.

I am afraid you misunderstood what I was stating.

According to the article, the microtransactions will be focused on the MP side of things; of which won't even launch with the game, itself.

As long as they hold to actual expansions to the main game, of which they stated is the case, and keep the MTs to a multiplayer; in the form of cosmetics and not buffs, then let them do what they do.

CDPR, as both a dev and a storefront owner, have done well by gamers for more than a decade now.

So? Call of Duty don't have MT in SP potion of the game too. And I see a loot of people complaining.

arkard932d ago (Edited 932d ago )

Because it's loot crates with CHANCES to unlock cool things and stuff added after launch so reviews aren't affected by it

MadLad931d ago

If you can compare CDPRs history at all close to Activision's of the last decade, you might have a point.

I think the point is the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 will have NO microstransactions. And to distinguish the difference between Cyberpunk 2077 and Cyberpunk multiplayer (2022). Two seperate games seperated by a couple of years (or more if multiplayer is delayed)

SpineSaw931d ago

Sounds like CDPR is doing the same as Activision, exactly the same. . "Let's wait till after the game releases and the review scores are posted then, then we'll unleash the greed". This is what they're doing and that looks and sounds just like the Call of Duty gameplan. Personally I have no issue with what they do it's their game they IMO have they right to do as they please. Now on the other hand I and only I control when and what I spend my $$$ on.

That single player potion is pretty potent

Hey watch out @TheRealTedCruz perhaps soon enough we'll see you telling us about all the wonderful benefits of micro-transactions... Seems like only the things you like get a pass... because I seem to remember you mentioning this aspect as a negative in Uncharted

MadLad931d ago (Edited 931d ago )

If you can find the comment, I'll happily live up to it, though I don't recall making a comment on it.

All the same, you do realize Uncharted had microtransactions that weren't simple cosmetic items, and did actually offer buffs, which was the point of my comment, yes? So if I did make a comment on it, it most likely would have been about that. Which, really, just makes me consistent and not simply "giving a pass to things I like". Especially considering that I actually enjoy Uncharted, and own them on several consoles.

Coming from people who make excuses for exclusivity you don't really have a leg to stand on.

VerminSC931d ago

The problem is it’s a slippery slope. Once they see the revenue they make from micro transactions their priorities may shift. They may focus less on single player expansion and more on multiplayer ecosystem. Just look what happened to GTA and RDR.

nowitzki2004931d ago (Edited 931d ago )

I dont blame Rockstar at all for wanting to make as much as they can. I blame the people who keep buying and keep that train going.

Parasyte932d ago (Edited 932d ago )

Clickbait title. CDPR have repeatedly said there will be no microtransactions in Cyberpunk. They even said it today.

aconnellan931d ago

It won’t be in the single player. The multiplayer is a stand-alone release coming post-launch, in which there will be microtransactions.

Fluttershy77931d ago (Edited 931d ago )

Is just a question because I have no idea. Does EA's Fifa has micro-transactions in their single player "experience" or is it only in the multiplayer (like what Activision's Call of Duty does). Are you mentioning the post-launch thing as a way of saying "hey at least we'll have a couple of months without micro-transactions"?

Sgt_Slaughter931d ago

@fluttershy They mean there's a whole separate Cyberpunk game coming out in 2022 or later that will be just be a multiplayer game. THAT is the one that will have some sort of MTs, Cyberpunk 2077 itself will NOT have any MTs of any kind.

Also they will have it as $60, nothing higher.

“”Update: The headline of an earlier version of this article did not clarify the quote was in reference to the multiplayer experience. This has been changed.“”——— Title updated on gamespot but not here yet.

Fine. Either way it is my choice to buy or not buy. As it should be.
