Its like EA want the bad publicity? Is this still 'there is no such thing as bad publicity'? Just looking at this thread, and while knowing that EA are absolutely taking the **** people are still pre-ordering the game. Okay no paid for game should have micro-transactions that give an advantage to the player. If people want to pay for this years latest pinstripe combat suite than that is their own dumb choice, but no such transactions should given them an advantage in a paid for game.
