On Turbine & Microtransactions

A post to The Lord of the Rings Online Forums reassures subscribers that Turbine is not planning on implementing real-money transactions into their Lord of the Rings MMOG, or presumably any of their current projects, responding to outcry over a job advertisement noticed by Massively that references "Turbine's micro-transaction-based in-game store." Without going into too much detail, they clarify that this is for a future game, rather than a current one: "We know the recent job listing has caused a bit of a stir, but please be aware that this posting is for an unannounced future project." Thanks Eurogamer.

I feel special that it was my thread that prompted the response

That said, even if Turbine includes MTs into their future games, I'd expect either the game's entire base model to be built around it or it being solely left to their console MMO efforts, as console players are more willing to part with little fees than to pay monthly...especially those using Live.
