[IGN] Blacks Ops 2 getting micro-transactions - Page 7

post #61 of 64
As long as I can play the game and unlock guns and gear throw game play I don't care what they do if some one wont's special camo and are willing to pay for it fine not the end of the world. It was in gears of war, planetside 2, team fortress 2 and countless other games and it din not turn them in to play to win as long as it's stays superficial crap it fine. Now if it turns in to gear that I can not unlock throw normal gameplay and has huge advantage then there's a problem I just wont buy there game that it, hell its cod its all most a no buy game as its is wink.gif .

How is DLC any different?

Agreed on your second point. I don't want micro transactions to single players out or formulate a pay-to-win strategy. Would one consider those Black Ops 2 mico-transactions to be game breaking? I hope not because I don't see how. As long as the micro-transactions don't attempt to sell you at every turn (IE angry birds and that eagle nonsense) or break game play, I don't see anything wrong with it.
Yeah because all mico-transactions are $20. And what's not to say some of that stuff wasn't created after the game has been released?

I'm pretty sure a lot of the DlC's could of been added in the game before launch. Skins,Perks,guns,classes could of all been added. I will accept a expansion pack because it adds another 25%-50% more to my play experience.


Edit: Most Dlc's that add levels,maps are probably worth the 15 bucks

The same could be said for expansions. There were many cases in the old days were expansions were very near to completion on the release of the game. If anything can be added to a game then they could have been in the game from the beginning. Expansions typically added a lot more, but were also typically more expensive. Bundle up a bunch of DLCs and add their content and price together and you will probably often get something comparable to expansions in the days of old. Though you'd probably have to get $40 of DLCs to equal a $30 expansion, but that could go either way...and value will always be a matter of opinion too. However, everything is more expensive these days anyway so getting less for more doesn't surprise me.

However, the skin and texture packs and the like? Yeah...those used to come from modding for the most part. We are now basically forced to pay for some one to mod the game. That saddens and angers me. Modding was the most major advantage PC gaming had. Now all we are basically left with easier to use controls...and better graphics, but I don't think graphics are that big of a deal as long as they aren't ugly. I have never seen graphics on the PS3 or 360 that would have prevented me from buying the game. I highly doubt I will ever upgrade my PC again. I think I will just get a next gen console unless some MMO or PC exclusive comes out that I just have to play. However, no mods is making PC gaming look very unattractive to me. That is coming from some one who never even purchased a PS2 because I didn't want to leave PC gaming.

Is anybody actually surprised...... that this wasn't implemented a hellofa lot sooner?? I know I am. It'll start of with gun skins and camo and eventually turn into extra hand grenade pouch,extra flash pouch, little spying robot, get to put the words "¥µb3r 1337¥" in multi-color as your pre-fix. Sort of how premium players in BF3 got the shiny words put on their ID when you get killed by them and such, lmao.
