@believer258: I'm with you there. Also EA has been reasonable with micro-transactions in their games so far. Mass Effect 3 only had it multiplayer and it was easy to earn money after you got the hang of the game. Need for Speed and the Tiger Woods PGA only allow you to unlock stuff that you get from level progression.
I admit this trend will stop me from pre-ordering EA games. I would need to read review to make sure they don't make micro-transactions critical to the game.
