Microtransactions
By:Mr Daax
Date: 4/9/13 2:25 pm

I'm curious what all you guys think about this, if it is indeed true.

http://www.gamespot.com/news/halo-4-could-add-microtransactions-6406558

On one side, if it's only cosmetic items that don't affect gameplay, it's not really a big deal, right?
However, as a loyal fan, I can't help but feel very frustrated that the $60+ that I fork over for a game that I love is not enough to access all the content of the game, DLC map packs not included of course; but this feels different. It just feels like a money grab, and that makes my beloved Halo feel tainted in some way :(
