@Snaptrap Well, hasn't this been the case always? Anti-piracy never works, never has and never will. The only ones that are affected by it are the legit customers.

And on top of it all, usage of these methods, pushes the prices up as well.

@crabbyprime I haven't bought this one yet, and by the looks of it, won't either.

I have always been a massive Simcity fan, but what I have read and seen about this new one, I just don't like. Such a shame.

@Master_Vexov Of course they did. I said this all along when I was still posting on their forums. Most comments I got back were in the line of; "oh don't be ridiculous, they haven't even decided it yet" or "but they are only LOOKING into hiring a team for console versions".

Yeah well, I knew it, and that's why D3 was, and is, so oversimplified. Can't be having the console kids confused and left out.

@Divisionbell Hate to say this, but this is how it goes these days.

Ongoing discussion, especially concerning the newer gamers/younger generation wanting it all at once and straight away, has brought us to this.

Problem is, people don't want to work for the stuff anymore, why bother "wasting" time collecting parts, or waiting for that epic drop etc., when you can just spend a bit of money and get it as easy as click, click, done.

I don't think its gaming industrys' fault per se, obviously they try to promote it as much as they can, because it will create extra revenue out of nothing, but moreso what I mentioned about the "wanting stuff NOW" - mentality.

@thegroveman I'm with you on this. Like you said it used to be so simple. You bought a game, you got the whole game and end of story.

Nowadays, you can buy extra this and extra that. DLCs, proper ones I mean, I can somewhat live with, not necessarily happy with them, but they aren't completely rotten.

However, this is starting to go towards the "too much zone". Buying minerals and weapons in a SP game with real money? (Well, what is supposed to be one anyway.) Geez.

I didn't see it as a problem in ME3 mind, but I do feel like this is a step too far.

However, don't think its just EA, take a look at Blizzard and D3 for example. The whole game revolves around auction house, mainly the real money one. And quite frankly ruined the game.
