EA Won't Put Microtransactions In All Games

By Bobfish07-03-2013

EA were going to put microtransactions into every game. And now they won't. Because some of them will be bigger. Apologies for this people, but this is one of the biggest piles of horsehit I've ever had the honour of reporting on Pixel Judge. EA CFO Blake Jorgensen sank to new depths of talking out of his arse at the Wedbush Transformational Technology conference. In response to the intense backlash.

"I made a statement in the conference along the lines of, 'We'll have microtransactions in our games,' and the community read that to be 'all games,' and that's really not true. All of our mobile games will have microtransactions in them, because almost all of our mobile games are going to a world where its play-for-free. You're going to see extensions off of products like Battlefield Premium which are simply not microtransactions. They are premium services, or additional add-on products or downloads that we're doing. It's essentially an extension of the gameplay that allows someone to take a game that they might have played for a thousand hours and play it for two thousand hours. We want to ensure that consumers are getting value."

Or, in English. They won't all be micro-transactions, some of them will cost too much. I'm sorry, but there really is nothing more to say.

This is suspiciously less aggressive than the way I initially wrote it.

I wonder what could have happened ~_~
