Star Wars: Battlefront 2 And Micro-Transactions

Another year brings another broken gaming model. This time it takes the form of a beloved franchise in Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

These days we’re use to games that break out of the box and companies that release tons of garbage that could have been programmers’ weekend projects.

When you pay $60 for a new game from a top company you expect a full gaming experience. You don’t expect Farmville-style up-selling spam. So gamers were rightfully angry when they found out Battlefront 2 would ship with a pay-to-win storefront (game companies are calling this a “mechanic” now).

Star Wars Battlefront to Debut in April

If you were on the fence about picking up a PS4, this might be the reason you were looking for to make the jump to the next generation of consoles. All signs point to the new Star Wars Battlefront game targeting only the newer consoles.
