EA Clarifies Microtransactions Statement, Only Applies To All Mobile Games

Posted on Wednesday, March 6 @ 09:29:14 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Just last week, EA chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen scared gamers across the globe when he revealed the company's plan to include microtransactions into every one of their games from here on out. "We're building into all of our games the ability to pay for things along the way, either to get to a higher level to buy a new character, to buy a truck, a gun, whatever it might be," he said.

Apparently, that is not what he meant. Today, during during the Wedbush Technology Conference in New York City, Jorgensen clarified what he intended to communicate, saying, “I made a statement in the conference along the lines of ‘We’ll have micro-transactions in our games’ and the community read that to mean all our games, and that’s really not true. All of our mobile games will have micro-transactions in them, because almost all of them are going to a world where they are play for free.”

So that statement only applied to the mobile market? I'll believe it when I see it. The new Mass Effect title better not nickel and dime me as I strive to save the galaxy.
