[Dtoid] Dead Space 3 microtransaction/DLC prices revealed - Page 9

post #81 of 132
I can't see myself paying 60 dollars for this(pc game for 60?) and buying macro transactions.

What a shame, I really wanted to play this, but just cannot support this model.

So don't buy them? They're completely optional and they just give you early access to stuff you'd get in-game anyway.

You know... wasn't DLC supposed to extend the profitability of a game as your essentially getting money past the games shelf life? I mean really, if game companies would actually make some DLC worth while maybe they'd make money off of it.

I miss the days of full blown expansion packs, they were almost like a equal when done properly. Warcraft 2: Through the Dark Portal, Warhammer Dawn of War: Winter Assault, Mechwarrior 4 and it's ridiculous amount packs... Sigh PC gaming has been dead for a lot longer than most people realize on this forum...

The micro-transactions listed here are completely optional. You don't have to buy all of them to unlock the items, just that you have to progress through the game to unlock them.

The packs are only for people willing to unlock weapons/stuff earlier in the game.
Quote:
These resources (materials, scrap parts and the like) can be picked up by the player, picked up by scavenger bots you send out, or alternatively bought through a quick purchase from the in-game store.

I don't see why people over here are making such a fuss out of this anyways? You aren't going to use it anyways. Who wants to destroy their game experience by buying overpowered weapons at the very beginning of the game.

And please, these micro-transaction items should not be compared to DLC's. We have already seen stuff like these in various games, TF2, DOTA 2, etc

TF2 and DOTA 2 (if you get a beta key) are both F2P as of now. Whereas DS3 is an AAA title with the pricepoint of an AAA game. Purchaseable gear should be kept as F2P assets, instead of affecting a single player experience.

And TF2 wasn't a AAA game? The micro transactions in TF2 were inclueded long before it went F2P.

The purchasable gear are kept as F2P assets for those who progress through the game normally. The choice of affecting the single player experience has been given to you, either you can play the classic way by hunting resources and gaining those items through experience or dish out the money at the very beginning of the game to spoil it.
