    PC games have been ruined by this shit, Best to just download the cracked version and not have any bloatware on your pc or have to give your fucking credit card details..

    i think they mistake 'enjoying and embracing' with 'muttering profanity under their breath but not quite pissed off enough to stop playing the game yet'

    i don't think i'll be buying anything with an ea logo on it again
    fuck these niggers

    Microtransaction stores are only reasonable on grind-heavy mmos, or if you want to permanently unlock content without having to constantly sub to that game, or if you simply want to be ahead of everyone else in pvp. Cosmetics are another thing. It's about convenience. Using those stores to enhance single player is lame as fuck. Hasn't EA already discovered alternate revenue streams through selling their games through online distribution, such as Origin?

    I'm completely fine with smartphone games and MMOs using microtransactions, but when they start bringing this shit into games we already paid for then there's problems.

    What they're advocating is basically micro-DLCs and downloadable expansions. (Both have been around since forever.) They're just unable to articulate their proposition. In any case, this is way videogaming was heading when we began tolerating online gaming on consoles.

    I support this and hope they go 1,000 times farther, fuck it, they should totally make people pay to reload clips of ammo like that faggot ceo mentioned he wanted to do. Because enough people would finally get fed up with it and EA can crash and burn like it deserves to. The quicker they go through the downward spiral that is their shit business practice, the faster we can be rid of them.

    I completely forgot all about it. I remember reading the legal docs at one point. There was something about how the installation of Origin gives EA the right to scan all your files for any reason. Promptly thought, Fuck that, and moved on in life.

    If people will pay real money for in-game currency from gold farmers, then they'll pay real money for bullets in the middle of combat. That CEO's belief, while moronic, has definite precedence.

    It's not that bad since people will continue to buy EA games with day 1 DLC in legions

    Yes of course.
    That's why their profits have been dropping drastically for a year now.
