    There are a lot of millionaires who don't care about money. Let EA make games for them.

    $15,000 on ME:A multiplayer? What a dumbass. People like you are the reason EA thinks microtransactions are good for games and are changing Bioware into a shitty multiplayer game company.

    when Shin Megami Tensei  games come to the west the name is changed to persona(most of the time). There is already a persona 5.

    Microtransactions are a choice, if you want to get ahead of everyone and feel cool like an idiot go ahead and open your wallet like a dumbass.

    EA is smart for taxing idiots willing to spend money to get ahead, more money for better graphics and sooner releases for me 😎

    the expansion for SMT4 was released in physical format in the west. I think there's hope 5 will come as well.

    Well guess I won’t be buying an EA game anytime soon. Hell I never buy games from them anyway because of their poor business practice.

    Manveer Heir is a racist piece of trash, no wonder he got booted from Bioware.

    I was playing a game of Horde with someone recently on Gears of War 4 and he literally spent $350.00 of packs and eSports Supporter packs all in one intermission. Like, why? Talk about buyers remorse. I never see the guy online anymore so that's just a massive waste of money.

    I will not get mad at EA when people spend more than the game itself costs, they double their profits, when an increase in profit is that much, it would be stupid not to, blame the people that buy this shit not the company, that's tripling its profit

    I started to boycott EA games from quite some time I don't even buy my favourite FIFA games anymore.

    God I hate EA….Andromeda was by far the most disappointing thing in my nearly 30 years of playing games.
