It seems Capcom will indeed be having microtransactions for their Deep Down game. The game will be FREE to PS4 owners, but these gamers will have to purchase gear, spells and just about everything else to get anywhere in the game. I knew this was going to be the case after Capcom announced the game would be FREE.
"The game Deep Down is provided free of charge, but players are required to pay for additional items and other game content," he added. "To ensure people playing the game don't lose interest, we will keep working to deliver stable long-term services."
Ouch. I was interested in this game when it was first shown, but after the huge graphical nerf, the game had lost interests from many. Now with these crazy microtransactions, I'm definitely staying away from this crap. All I can do is wait and hope and pray for a Dragon's Dogma 2. Capcom is steadily losing fans. With the next SF game (Ultra Super SF IV) coming in late Spring, early Summer, we can expect even more milkage and expensive costumes and super moves from Capcom. Capcom can suck it.
