  1. A long time ago in a video game arcade …uh…kinda downtown…the normal gamer would put in a $0.25 coin to play a game, and would have to put in another if the toon died and so forth. And this was fine, in multiplayer this is fair, because good players have earned their in game longevity.

    Now we can play 'free' (but for our sold personal information), and have the privilege of being punching bags for the people who pay thousands of dollars for Packs. And this sucks.

  2. I don't blame the people who became upset over the Mtx issue. The statement was vague and could be taken either way. Almost everyone knew that they said "monetisation" but the whole argument was over that one side was adamant it wasn't Mtx and the other was adamant it was and a 3rd was like it could be either. All three though, knew that it was yet to confirmed and that CDPR will reply. It's part of the reason why this issue was given so much voice.

    I don't like blind outrage train passengers, nor do i like fanboy defense forces, but CDPR was also at a bit of a fault here. The whole thing was a confusing mess and a lot of people rightly pointed out that CDPR's communication has been weird with this game unlike most other companies. Even now, they haven't truly deconfirmed Mtx as their statements still have that AAA political PR speak lace to them and there are two different statements about what the multiplayer mode or separate game actually is in tie with monetisation.

  3. I don’t care too much def still gonna but the game, but how are you gonna say that micro transactions were never brought up then right after say the translation was micro payments? Obviously it’s the same thing

  4. But discussing this is what’s important regardless of the game this kind of practice has been completely taken advantage of and make a distinction between you exploiting people and progressing the lifespan of the game is what’s truly important.

  5. What I got out of this is:

    Some form of monetization is coming

    – Monetization is only going to be in the multiplayer

    – Multiplayer is coming after all the main story stuff is out ( I assume this means after future DLC as well )

    – Monetization was never mentioned to be coming to the Single player

    If Im wrong on anything feel free to correct me.

  6. Yah. I never understood all the complaining. This game was always supposed to be a single player game. That is what you are buying. The game engine can handle multiplayer though and it sounded like a small group were interested in trying out some sort of multiplayer using the assets from the single player mode. Well it sounds like they are interested in releasing this. after all. This is not part of the promised game so they want to monetize it somehow. They are probably trying to deal with the act the are worried of charging to much and whether it should be a DLC or a stand alone game and whether they should charge for it or make it free with microtransactions instead.

    People are acting like this was promised as part of the original purchase and now they want to charge extra for it. Nope. But they have spend time and money developing this extra feature/gamemode and it will require extra support and servers, so I have no problem with them monetizing it. Of course I have no interest in it personally and I am only worried I will get hit with multiple adds wanting me to try out the multiplayer. To tell you the truth I am not a hard core gamer anymore and really like my FPS on the easier side… mostly because I hate dealing with overly complicated game mechanics and would rather crank down the difficulty than dealing with chems and such and special maneuvers and directing NPCs.. I just like a basic FPS with good gunplay and a good story and something that is not too grindy.

  7. CD Project Red is one of the best rpg-devs we have, so I give them the benefit of a doubt until something official proving they do something shady is out.

    Really if they make only optional and not overpriced cosmetic microtransactions in the multiplayer and it has enough free content to beginn with than I see no problem with that. Constant for the player free Contant Updates for a long running mp game cost money to make, so it´s maybe not the worst idea to use the games earnings f.e. for this.

    This is just speculation of course and if CD Project Red goes full Bethesda here, then I stop to defend them. T am not an idiotic fanboy.^^

  8. welp, I just removed it from my steam wish list. I don't mind micro transaction in free to play game, cause that's the only way to make money and the basis is free to play! But If I have to pay 70 bucks for a game, I expect to have full access solo and multiplayer, seeing it's not the case here, they won't get a penny from me.
