It's a situation they can't really win. Admit it was a mistake and look like tools, or fix it and enforce the notion that they are trying to drive you towards paying for the resources.
This is like hitting a cue ball in snooker, eyes closed, and potting a ball, then saying "I meant to do that" when you really didn't.

Intentional my arse. More than likely they saw the huge negative reaction to their microtransaction system and are now re trying to make the best of the PR situation.

Dead Space 3 producer John Calhoun said the game's micro-transactions were included to accommodate for young gamers accustomed to smartphone conventions, where micro-transactions are the norm


Erm, what rating is this game again?

I don't think they know how to fix it anyway. Would prob charge you for the patch.

So in an 18 rated game they added features to appeal to young people and are quite blatant about it, I really dislike EA.

Its funny thing .... some people are saying that this "Glitch" is basically theft, which is obviously BS.

More likely, they'd patch it then charge you to un-patch it.

I played Dead Space 2...was ok. Finished it, but didn't feel like I needed any more. Dead Space 3 seems like it would be just more of the same.
Bit like a Jason Statham movie. Watch one and know that's all you'll ever need.
