'Not all' future EA games will feature microtransactions, ex

Postby sonic_uk » 06 Mar 2013, 17:22

I made a statement along the lines of 'We'll have microtransactions in our games' and the community read that to mean all our games, and that's really not true.


Bulls***. You were directly quoted as "All our future games will include microtransactions", and to further back this up "Our customers are enjoying and embracing that way of business.

I guess we didn't "enjoy and embrace" it as much as you would like to think eh? Why can't you just admit you royally f***ed up, apologize and move on? Attempting to save face is just digging yourself a deeper hole. I must say I'm surprised it actually worked though, the backlash I mean. I guess we are not such a "vocal minority" as first thought and that if you push us too far in the end we will stand up and say enough is enough. Well done to every gamer who did this.

Oh dear, not again...can we not have a "WiiU failing" story to gloss over this pitchfork-fest please ?

“The greatest trick the devil ever played was letting gamers believe they'd forced the devil into a u-turn on including microtransactions in all of the devils future video games."

Make your minds up EA :roll: and also when i buy another EA title whatever title that may be, I'll be paying my £40 and no more, just because there will be microtransactions wouldn't make me feel inclined to spend more of my pennies.

Hahahahaha, nice try. The fact that they had to announce this is quite satisfying. Looks like not all gamers were the mugs you took them for eh? And who moaned about the "moaners" moaning eh?..

I assume the E and A stand for Elbow and Arse, and that the aforementioend company can't actually tell one from the other.

"EA now hiring stealth for PR campaign"

That will do it.
