But if the practice of including these kinds of microtransactions becomes commonplace, then it won’t be long before publishers clue into the fact that they can build psychological devices into a game to extort money from players

It -is- commonplace. Dead Space 3 is far from the first game to have done this, so I'm a little curious as to why it's even getting the attention it is. I still remember being a bit blown away by the amount of day-1 DLC that Gears of War 3 had, and it wasn't even the first to do it.
