Forums - Gaming Discussion - Red Dead Redemption 2 to lock 2 in-game missions behind Special Edition

https://www.vg247.com/2018/06/05/red-dead-redemption-2-special-ultimate-edition-locked-content/

Wow, Take-Two (the Rockstar parent company) really is cancer, and I mean EA/Activision/Konami level cancer. Selling shark cards for overpriced vehicles, bases, etc., locking haircuts and player progression behind grindy paywalls and now this? I had a sick feeling it was gonna have some kind of scummy monetisation in it and, well, I was right. I fucking called it when T2's shitbag CEO, Strauss Zelnick said they're "under monetising" gamers after the shit they pulled with GTAO and NBA 2K18. Releasing day 1 DLC AND only making it available for the special edition? AAA gaming has officially sunk to a new low.

It is an annoying practice, but at the end of the day if you just pretend that content doesn't exist you'll still have an incredible experience for $60, it's just a drop in the ocean of f what the game has to offer.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

Well, thats shitty.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

That is way I generally wait until a complete edition of a game is released.



this game is a game i was hyped but as its release gets closer i more and more things are said or revealed that makes me highly skeptical about this game

That's awful.



I am currently sigless.

Not worth the extra €20. I'll stick with the cheaper version.



Does that also hold true for the Switch version?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

The GTA modding fiasco was a warning T2 were looking to go down this path but the EA meltdown just delayed it as they watched it unfold.



And gamers will still buy it,so it will just get worse and worse
