What could it be?

I just hope they don't screw this game up, in-game purchases are almost never a good thing.

Possibles: Shenmue passport related. Buy the capsules with real money, Multi language.

 

Edit:

This is strange because In the US PlayStation Store it doesn't list "In-game purchases optional" as a feature.

I bet it’s to buy collectibles with real cash instead of grinding a forklift job.

Gaming in 2018 man... they had to add in all the trimmings that people expect to find in a modern RPG.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Oh no! People might have to control themselves!

It's more a case of this to think about.... did they create new content to buy and add into the game for purchase... or have they cut out portions of the already complete game and now ask a charge for what was complete on the Dreamcast and Original Xbox, knowing Sega and 2018 gaming, my bet would be on the latter moreso than the former.

You know, some people have compulsive tendencies completely beyond their control. It's just how their brains are wired. It's nice if you don't, but that doesn't mean there shouldn't be measures in place to protect people with that problem. Should we take away the handicap ramps, too?

It's not just about control to not buy microtransactions. It's a case of has the dev intentionally hindered the player and worsened the game experience in order to encourage microtransaction purchases? ie. will something that should have been achievable just by following the story now take 4 hours of additional grinding unless you buy microtransactions? I don't know about you but I don't trust a single dev in the world when it comes to that kind of thing.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
