EA heads did an interview yesterday and unleashed some nuggets about how they say the consumers are "embracing" microtransactions and they plan to put it in every game. http://www.destructoid.com/ea-plans-a-future-of-microtransactions-update--247138.phtml I guess me and many other who were so against Dead Space 3 because its "features" would crawl their way into everything else are right. I'm thanking EA right now for making my decision to either pirate or completely ignore their games such an easy choice. http://www.gamespot.com/news/ea-undecided-on-next-gen-pricing-6404527 "We haven't yet set pricing on our [next-generation games], but you'll probably see a similar trend during the start of the next cycle." This is them talking about pricing, which they might have go up from what the standard is now, so 70$ may be what they are looking at.
