EA’s plan was to have people pay real money for an in-game currency that allows players to purchase ‘Loot Crates’ that provide random rewards. Sounds like a slot machine.
If EA succeeds here, game publishers will feel emboldened to put more gameplay content behind a paywall/grindwall in multiplayer games.
EA’s ‘micro-transactions’ mean players either have to spend a disgusting number of hours in game, or spend a lot of hard-earned cash getting the things that should have been included.
Video games and systems are cheaper than ever when adjusted for inflation and that the cost of making them has exploded. Something has to give.
