Halo 4 May Implement Microtransactions
Filed under: HALO 4

Since Halo 4's multiplayer and co-op features offer plenty of customization, it's really no surprise that 343 Industries is looking at introducing microtransactions for cosmetic items for the multiplayer. At least, that's what executive producer Dan Ayoub recently told Digital Spy.

"I think Halo certainly has the potential for those kinds of things," Ayoub said. "We don't have too much to talk about in terms of our plans down that line, but it's certainly something… we've seen the fans of Gears are enjoying, and if it's something we think our community is going to enjoy, it's something we'll seriously talk about."

Microtransactions for little features like these are becoming more and more commonplace with multiplayer portions of games, and I think we'll see this as more of a staple as time goes on. As long as they keep the microtransactions to the multiplayer and keep them cosmetic and OUT of single-player campaigns, I'll remain appeased.

I'm a fan of Gears and I go gaga for microtransactions. I enjoy them so much that one time I even called my boyfriend 'Microtransaction' during sex.

don't blame the seller... blame the people who keep buying DLC... You can always wait for GoTY edition if you don't like to pay for DLC.

As if we don't pay enough for games. Between the original game, the DLC's and the micro transactions, people spend ridiculous amounts of money on one game :(

Look, if it's optional, and for stupid shit like armor colors or skins and such.... whatever. Better than paying $10 for a new map every month.

First you buy, then you play, then you buy again, and again, and again everytime.. Their sales may increase, but the game's value goes wayyyy down..
