Microtransactions or: Death by a thousand paper cuts. Sure, it all seemed so innocent at first, but then we started having Oblivion
horse armor, Kameo Uno
decks and now EA's Need for Speed: Carbon
shows up exploiting
the system to its full and most disgusting potential -- oh wait, EA already did that charging
tutorials. And how many are willing to pay and feed this exploitation?
A group of writers at GamerFeast created a microtransaction tracker and started keeping tabs. Guess who's the top offender? (The list after the break) They've also broken everything down in spreadsheet
form to review with a fine tooth comb, if you wish. It's a great resource and know we'll be checking back in again soon.
