Jesus fucking Christ, people are actually defending Activi$ion selling them reticles in an FPS game, WTF?! I'll bet if they actually did charge for ammo like I talked about earlier (which I wouldn't put it past Activi$ion), they'd try to defend that as well. 

This is why modern day gaming is in the state it's in, because of people letting greedy companies like EA, Activi$ion, Konami, Ubisoft, WB, Take Two, etc. get away with it. Some people tried to defend Konami selling them $10 save slots as well, fucking SAVE SLOTS, a basic feature that's been free in every game since the NES days. What next? Charging to load the game up? Oh wait, I'll bet they'd try to defend THAT as well SMGDMFH. 

Let me spell it out in simple terms: if it's a basic feature, YOU DON'T FUCKING CHARGE FOR IT! Just like if it's on the disc, you don't fucking charge for it. That's like record companies saying "we'll charge you $5 extra for tracks 5, 10 and 11 on that CD you just bought".

This kind of socialist entitlement is ridiculous.  You are not automatically entitled to everything a company makes for free.  You're just not.  I don't care how much you whine that you should get it or how much you did that silly little "replace the letter S with $" thing.  Someone else's work has a much value as they can get for it.  If you don't like capitalism then you should probably give up videogames entirely.  Maybe there are some socialist videogame companies out there for you?

This. When you pay $60 for BO4 you know what you're getting. Anything extra they can charge for.

If you are dumb enough to buy this then Activision deserve your money.

I wonder how many people actually bought this. It's so plain and pointless...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I don't see a problem with this, I'm completely fine with microtransactions as long as they're cosmetic and not pay to win.



You can both be annoyed by entitled outrage culture while simultaneously being against microtransactions overall. It doesn't have to be one or the other.

I think Activision is anticipating Bethesda does something stupid with Fallout 76 so the heat is taken off their backs... again.

I think more free content is good but if a publisher never stated that something would be free post launch people should not expect everything to be free because they already paid for the product they go. Anything after is up to the publisher. And anyways Treyarch has offered a lot of free content and BO4 has the ebst microtransaction system in recent years so complaining over a $1 dot is just stupid.



If you see no problem with charging for a red dot then you will continue being bent over. The company's job is do anything to give investors what they want money, our job as consumers is to pay the least amount money for the games we want. Between the corporations and consumers who is doing the best job? I don't understand why gamers will pay full price for example Destiny and Destiny 2 when these games were not finished when released. Consumers smarten up or it will get worse

The Destiny and BO4 comparisons is like comparing apples to oranges. Before Destiny 1 launched Bungie and Activision lied about what would be in the game and later charged for what they promised day 1. That's a scummy business practice. For BO4 everything promised to launch with the game was there day 1 so we got the product we payed for. Anything they decide ti add post launch we shouldn't expect to be free because we didn't pay for that. Granted it's nice to still get some free content ( Bo4 has done a great job with free updates btw) but expecting it to free is entitlement.

How can you possibily think that selling a pixel is not a problem. I guess thats why these companies don't go out of business, they sell ppl a pixel for 1$ and they actualy buy it.

This.

The issue is selling reticles, as in something that's free in every shooter besides this one. EVERY! SINGLE! ONE!
