The other thing really depends on if they made it a grind to get people to pay. If so it's horrible and something I cannot support, if not then it's basically the same cheat code sales thing EA has been doing since the 360 came out and I can ignore it.
Reviews will tell.
EA's been doing this with sports titles forever already in the line of buying boosts for say a a defenseman's blocking skill or whatever in NHL for example.
The microtranactions are there for the lazy, they won't force anyone to buy them or unbalance gameplay to push people towards it. Other publishers do the same thing, it's amazing to me that there's such a hate for EA here though, every publisher is on the DLC/microtransaction bandwagon at this point. It's like you guys think it's only EA who does this sort of thing.
