Sure, you can make it sound that simple, but the fact is that there are PLENTY of good games to play these days.

I'm really not a fanboy of any particular series. I like a wide variety of genres. If Ubisoft is releasing a game for $60 which has their horrible DRM, and now micro transactions on top of it, I'm probably not going to buy that game even if it looked like a game I'd be interested in, because you can be sure there are plenty of other interesting games I could spend that $60 on also being released at the same time.

Also, from my perspective as a broke student, there are already very few games I will consider paying $60 for. That's already expensive to me considering the abundance of free-to-play games and budget titles (Torchlight 2, Natural Selection 2, there are plenty of amazing titles for ~$30). If they're going to want even more of my money on top of that $60, no matter how cool the game looks, that's more money than I can spend on gaming at this point in my life. I'm completely done with the Call of Duty and Battlefield series. This isn't because I don't enjoy playing them, but because, in Call of Duty's case, paying $60 for the base game, $15 per map pack, with 4 packs over the game's one year lifespan, and then a new $60 game the next year, is simply more money than I'm willing to put into gaming.

Another word for micro-transactions is DLC.

Yes most likely. This one isn't special. I'm just not gonna play it because
1. I have school to worry about
2. There will be other games that come out. When a game is delayed on PC like AC and RE, I tend to forget about them. That's all.
