All EA’s Games in the Future will Feature Microtransactions
EA will be implementing Dead Space 3 style of microtransactions into all of their games next generation according to EA’s financial officer Blake Jorgensen.
Jorgensen had this to say about the microtransaction model
“We are building into all of our games the ability to pay for things along the way; to get to a higher level. And consumers are enjoying and embracing that way of business.”
EA’s chief technology officer Rajat Taneja is overseeing the move. Jorgensen added that Taneja’s team views microtransactions as a key feature moving forward, and they have decided to take payment models in-house, instead of outsourcing them as they used to.
Added Jorgensen, “If you’re doing microtransactions and you’re processing credit cards for every one of those microtransactions you’ll get eaten alive. And so Rajat’s team has built an amazing backend to manage that and manage that much more profitably. We’ve outsourced a lot of that stuff historically; we’re bringing that all in-house now.”
I really don’t like EA that much, and stuff like this makes me hate them more. They better leave this crap out of Mass Effect….. wait too late, Mass Effect 3′s multiplayer already has this crap. I won’t be buying any of EA’s games other than Mass Effect. Damnit EA!
