@MkScorpion4400: Ah yes, the "Well they weren't wrong even though they admitted they were wrong!" defense. They definitely changed their practices because they weren't wrong, huh? After all, according to you, companies should be able to do anything they want because regulation is evil! All regulation was clearly a Pandora's Box and was just the most horrible thing!

Laughable, and indeed headache inducing.

@MkScorpion4400: We can see exactly what you said. I'm sorry you advocated for unregulated drinking, but that's what you did.

So yeah, pretend you're bored. So bored you have to reply to everyone and defend microtransactions....

@MkScorpion4400: The legal system has stated unequivocably that you and your sketchy morality is wrong. I know it hurts, since your whole schtick here is arrogantly pushing some twisted defense of lootboxes, but reality always trumps delusions.

@MkScorpion4400: Ok your arguments are complete nonsense if you think children should be allowed to drink and alcohol shouldn't be regulated, but that's all you've spewed here is nonsense so what else is new. You're the kind of person who thinks scamming people should be legal because it's their choice to fall for it.

@Warlord_Irochi: What the hell are you talking about. The famous Dead Island trailer released in the same year as the game, 2011. The game itself was first announced in 2007, four years prior.

Maybe know the facts before you try and fail (again) to bloat yourself as some kind of knowledgeable tough guy?

"Dead Island 2 has not been cancelled"

Why not? It's undead in the water at this point, and we really don't need yet another zombie game.

Could it be because they know their claims were nonsense, and Callendar's claims about Pitchford are true?

Honestly, everyone involved in making decisions for the original production should be fired.

@vanjuku: Nomura wasn't making FF15 though. He was just making a FF spinoff.

@MkScorpion4400: "Their banking/credit card info shouldn't be available"

Many games save the information allowing for one touch purchases. Amazon Google and Apple have all settled huge lawsuits forcing them to refund microtransactions because they were bought in this way by children.

These systems are designed to make it as easy as possible for a child to spend money without the parent knowing. These companies should not be allowed to get away with it, and blaming the parents is ignorant. It's especially ignorant of the fact that children are on average far more technologically savvy than their parents are, and this is exploited by developers.
