DS3, anyone else refusing to buy it?
i myself am going to refuse to buy DS3 because of the fact they they feel the need to add micro transactions to a full priced single player/coop game so they can greedily squeeze all the money they can out of gamers (i will probably just *pirate* this game unless they remove the micro transaction thing) (i don't want to pirate it but game companies need to stop all this micro transaction sh*t unless the game is F2P)

I am going to let this title slide. Consumers do have the power. It's like someone else said in another thread, eating EA's crap with a knife and fork and smile along the way. If you ask me, the gaming market is going in a terrible direction with sub par products or overly expensive to get the full experience. Their Origin platform is garbage. Every game has to have a DLC section which makes it seem that I have partial a game. As a consumer, I won't condone EA's practices...

"Visceral Producer John Calhoun acknowledged the existence of microtransactions in the game, and said the inclusion of a quick-buy option is meant for players who “need instant gratification” instead of procuring materials on their own.

'There’s a lot of players out there, especially players coming from mobile games, who are accustomed to microtransactions,' Calhoun explained. 'They’re like, ‘I need this now, I want this now.’ They need instant gratification. So, we included that option in order to attract those players, so that if they’re 5000 Tungsten short of this upgrade, they can have it.'"

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO PURCHASE, DON'T.

its not the fact that its made by EA thats not my issue its the fact that game companies are putting micro transactions in full pay to buy games there is no need for it they just want our money making the excuse that its because mobile games expect all games to have them.
if the game was free or atleast cheaper than full price its more acceptable it will start with dead space 3 but soon every game out will be pay to win.

It's not pay to win, it's pay to cheat. I really wouldn't mind if, in the future, cheats in videogames were dlc.

Sorry but when you want to rush through things and even think about putting more money on a game only to end it faster, I think you're sick in the head and should simply stay away from videogames and instead do wtv fits you best out there. This hobby isnt for everyone,and If you dont have the heart and time to play agame then GTFO and stop making devs ruin videogaming for the rest of us who really do LOVE the hobby, and by loving I mean,those who put a ♥♥♥♥ingf 60$ on a game to actually enjoy its content,take our time,play on the hardest difficulty for the full experience, look at every nooks and crannies for hidden stuff/lore and actually enjoy a game with a ♥♥♥♥ing challenge and sense of accomplishment. Way too many ♥♥♥♥tards on Earth nowadays,and way too many of them got the opportunity to play videogames, these ♥♥♥♥tards are the same ♥♥♥♥♥♥s who cheats in games like BF3
