    You people seriously do not believe this is an issue? Are you going to deny gaming addiction exists too? It has been studied and proven to exist, do you really not believe a compulsive spending addiction cannot come along with it? Why do you think micro-transactions are everywhere now? Because these companies saw how much money mobile gaming was making off people addictive to spending on p2w. These companies have always used psychology to find new ways of addicting gamers, now it has turned to how can we get them addicted to micro-transactions. This issue will get much worse before it gets better, stop denying it.










    I agree with Viper. But also, no one is looking at the other side of the coin. Regardless of this kids problems or decisions and whether or not he's embellishing his story to get his 15 minutes of fame or if he really has a problem. He's only one example out of many others who really do have this problem. And the other side of this problem is that companies like EA don't care if they provide you with a solid entertainment experience or whether they destroy your life and family. They WILL attempt to exploit you. And it is deliberate.

    Someone with a predisposed condition makes them weak to this preditory marketing. You can point a finger and say "Be stronger fool!" but it doesn't work that way. This is no different than any other bully preying on the helpless. And here we are defending it.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Free Market Economic Principles 101. You dont always need regulation

    Now the next question is, would you rather play a game in which the developer makes choices based on fear of backlash? or a developer who understands gaming more than monetization? 
    RIIIIIIIGGGGHHHHTTT!!!!!

    NOW EA sees the error of their ways........They get it now. 

    Everything's gonna be alright after this, you'll see.

    Quality development at a fair market price where everyone wins......

    Yep, right around the corner.

    Why, I wouldn't be surprised if after this, EA puts a stop on everything they are doing even now to start correcting the error of their ways on titles in mid development.

    A development team starting with next to nothing earns an Est $68K/mo in order to develop an MMORPG title and we list this as a positive?
    People who donated see it as a positive cause it means they did a good deed!  Join the bandwagon party bus!
    To me, that level of a monthly income in order to develop an MMOPG leans more to the negative side than positive. I mean, I wouldn't want to use those figures to pitch my product to the Shark Tank team, that's for sure.

  • Forbes: 'Destiny 2' Has Been Secretly Reducing XP Gains, And Is Stopping After Fans Caught On

    Seriously, WTF?
    Spend a fortune on the box, then you have to drop tons of money just to enjoy the game later?
    I am just getting too old for this bullshit now.
    Time for a cheaper hobby, maybe boating or classic auto restoration.
