Not a charity, huh? Well neither am I in sugar coating that this is an addict hunt. Feel free to volunteer your time to wiping up their hurt feelings at the expression of the reality of their pricing system.
The game genre is predatory, this game is was and always will be predatory. I play on console, this is the PS4 forum. I just got done playing Fallout 4. Great game, won’t accept more than $60 for the base game though. Won’t sell you imaginary currency and a card with couple mediocre pieces of art and an algorithm attached to it for just what addicts might pay for nothing much.
You may have missed it, but that is how the 5, 10, 25, 50, 100 dollar slot machines work. Free to all, get a bunch of fish in the pond, but what they are after is the addicts with overpriced deals in their undercooked games. Whales is the term I believe. This one finds their prey by baiting them with deals of the week, I am sure you are familiar with them, and then sees how much they can get out of addiction to a simple task.
I didn’t ask to reverse losses, they just offered something for my many hours of connection trouble. You know I might have thought it was my PS4 if I didn’t stream Netflix off it when the game went in to interminable connection issues. But my many hours of frustration (I was an addict) were worth 100 souls, 5 iron keys, and 2 premium keys. That could be like $10 worth of imaginary currency, or way under an hour of playing for someone like me. But I know, they didn’t want to give away the company fortune in souls and keys.
I just found out what my hours of watching their errors are worth, and given what I payed in it is insulting.
