Looks like the beginnings of EA needing to come up with a new money funnel idea. Hope this spreads like wildfire!

I hope this trend continues. Good to see this bad practice being put in its place

In Belgium you will end up with FIFA point dealers, there like drug dealers but sell FIFA points. lol

But... but... but... these billion dollar publishers surely need the extra revenue from these MTX because game development has just gotten too expensive. I mean, look what happened to Sony as well as Santa Monica and Insomniac after last year's releases of God of War and Spider-Man. Huge expensive AAA games with no MTX and then all those studios went under soon after...

On second thought, maybe just leave it be. Yeah that sounds best.

xD I wouldn't mind it, but everytime I boot the game up I get halfway through the unskippable start part and just turn it off cos I can't be bothered. Just seen it too many times, if it was skippable I'd try it, but I think I'm done trying :/

You aren't looking big picture my friend. The legal precedent has been created; EA was challenged and buckled. Here are the governments next-in-line, courtesy of "Seeking Alpha":

 

https://seekingalpha.com/article/4236081-avoid-ea-fun-end

 

Austria

Czech Republic

France

Gibralter

Ireland

Isle of Man

Jersey

Latvia

Malta

The Netherlands 

Norway

Poland

Portugal

Spain 

Washington State 

United Kingdom

 

With a weak release schedule for 2019, Battlefield V falling hard and the momentum against EA's MTX cash cow, the institutions and the senior company leaders are dumping the stock.

 

Hell, at the end of the article they suggest shorting the stock if there is a sympathetic/dead cat bounce. That's hardcore bearish.
