Wait a minute, before you for the reply button, lemme explain. I’m not against microtransactions in mobile gaming. In PC gaming, oh yeah, I’m right there with ya. Bring out the pitchforks and the hay and lighters.
But in mobile, it’s quite a different story. Why? Well, let’s back up a bit and take the entire world as a stage.
In Asia, mobile markets are HUGE. I once heard a report that most people in China don’t even own a PC or a laptop, preferring to use their smartphone for everything.
And many Asians are fine with P2W mechanics in their games.
So, why bother? EA, UbiSoft, and Bethesda already have their cash cow, called Asia. It’s not a matter of if, nor when. It’s already taken ahold.
But I’ll be damned if I’m gonna stand by and let them ruin my games with that bullshit.
