So we have known for a few days that there will be microtransactions in Dead Space 3, which is of a $60 game. Now it seems that the developer is justifying that by claiming "mobile gamers" expect them and want them in all their games. This is ridiculous on its face. It's one thing for EA and Visceral to be nickel-and-diming players with in-game purchases, but to put forth this sort of blatantly absurd reasoning to justify it is just insulting.
Does anyone actually believe this?
