@Thanatos2k: The additional content added as a live service will be free. How is that's getting paid for if some folk with extra cash don't get to buy purple jet-flaps?

Once stores fail, that will only leave Amazon. Who could just move to selling downloads.

Box copies may be largely history when we hit the next generation: 2020/21.

Will the next PS/Xbox even have a Blu-Ray drive?

@Chronologo: No loot boxes. No Pay to Win. Specific cosmetics only.

@PSYCHOV3N0M: Don't buy a pink helmet with real money, earn it in the game.

Are we discussing the actual article?
No, we're whining about 'wimmin in the game' again.

Don't want to play it? That's fine with me. ?

@playstationzone: I think there will be microtransactions, but they will be entirely skippable.

It's nearly time for the talking to stop and the showing to begin.

It's a good step. If some folk buying face paint and weapons skins mean free DLC/updates for everyone else, that's fine.

Of course they will want post-sale revenue and if they make a good game, and that optional revenue doesn't have to come from me but others are happy to pay, I'm happy with that.

I'm not really interested in PvP so the 4-person co-op and campaign will be sufficient to enjoy.

@Arguyle: It's good to see editorial variety. Yet GameSpot has a trend to rate games less positively than most other sites. I'm not picking out a particular review or reviewer, just a general pattern of being less happy. Perhaps they appeal to a more cynical audience, it's hard to say. There's nothing wrong with highlighting pros and cons, I just find them out of step a lot of the time.
