I don't mind the MTX in CTR, I mean they gave us a ton of new tracks/modes and like a thousand skins for free while other games tend to offer this amount of content with a season pass. Earning everything took me some time but I prefer to have fun earning time and maybe do some grinding instead of buying a season pass.

Crash 4 probably will have the same, new levels with new challenges that earns you stuff/items and with those items you can buy extra skins if you but also an option to buy them. I find it still hypocretical that people prefer 2/3 season passes in a game that gives you the stuff immediately instead of earning them for free :s.
