I guess this makes me an idealist, but after reading the Gamespy interview and seeing the exec producer's cavalier attitude regarding deceiving the customer base, I can't see myself giving them money. They could take the whole game back to the drawing board, come back months from now with a much better product...and that slimy used-car salesman stink is still gonna bug me.
I get it, the genre is fun for some and I am not judging them for wanting to enjoy the game for what it is. I just don't want to knowingly support that type of business. The decision is made easier by the way the in-game store works. Losing loot you paid real money for upon death will get expensive quick, more expensive then I am comfortable with in this type of game.
