    I came to the thread expecting bad news about microtransactions and DLC

    I'm pleasantly surprised.

    Great, we get to buy the game and then if we like it we can buy more of the game.
    How will I survive if I ever stop paying?

    my bad. I thought "buy ghost coins with real-world money" meant real money.

    If this works like typical PC free2play FPS', then the currency is usually either ridiculously difficult to accumulate, or there will be things that are paid currency only.
    Or hell maybe they'll be nice and make ghost coins practically pointless outside of supreme laziness.
    EDIT: Btw i'm speaking specifically for the WiiU. PC will be pay2win as per the usual.

    Either way is fine with me since GR is terrible anyway.

    What they don't tell you is that you have to play around 500 matches to actually buy anything.

    Though was the any need to say "Ghost Recon on the Wii U", it's not exclusively for the Wii U, this news isn't just for the Wii U.
    I swear you guys post just about anything that has Wii U in the text.

    Because all their sources are www.nintendosomethingsomethingsomething.com and the dipshits who run these sites never bother pointing out that features on multiplat Wii U games are on every platform.

    I'm seriously suggesting that we start limiting our general gaming news sources to multifaceted websites like Eurogamer or, fuck, even IGN. At least when it's a console specific feature they mention it's console specific, they don't throw us a red herring like all these "specialty news sites".

    Even if this was "Wii U specific", who the fuck cares. Microtransactions for in game items have been on consoles for a while. Hell I can go buy a Spectre Pack in ME3 for 160 MS Points if I wanted to right now. If anything I thought people would be disgruntled with "rich noobies" able to boost their shit with daddy's credit card instead of actually working for it.

    I've searched around, and it seems like this is an exclusive story. It was perfectly well explained in the actual article that this is a multiplatform game. Is it the title you're concerned about, or is there something inherent disreputable about nintendosomethingsomethingsomething.com?
