[Polygon] EA won't have Microtransactions in all future games, exec clarifies

Speaking at today's Wedbush Technology Conference in New York City, Jorgensen said that last week's statement was more in reference to some of the new technology that EA is working on that will allow the publisher and developer to handle in-house credit card processing, digital downloads and "manage a world in which there are more and more micro-transactions as part of what we offer."

"I made a statement in the conference along the lines of 'We'll have micro-transactions in our games' and the community read that to mean all our games, and that's really not true," he said. "All of our mobile games will have micro-transactions in them, because almost all of them are going to a world where they are play for free."

Considering they have been doing it for quite a while (think of Dragon age origins) I call bull**** and damage control.

People on the internet smell a rat when they know one. I smell damage control. There is such a thing as bad press and it will affect profits.

Just like forcing people to buy content that should either be in the game (unlockable or otherwise)
