It's a win for Gamestop. I was looking forward to the death of microtransactions, multiplayer unlock codes and pre-order bonuses personally. I'm happy for soldiers and people without the internet, but am saddened at the thought of all the champagne bottles popping at Gamestop HQ as I write this.donalbaneGames were still going to be sold on disc, DRM or not, so no, there would still be pre-order bonuses.
As for microtransactions, they were going to happen, either way. Like it or not, it's the direction the industry is going in.
