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.

zznet...

You are wrong. As are the majority of people out there who bash on micro transaction games. It ok to pay someone 15 bucks a month. But its not ok to pay a company 15 bucks a month or less on some cool custom gear that makes your avatar a little unique and customized?

Look at Combat arms. they sell customized versions of weapons and armor that you already have the stats for and or acquired in game loke desert or arctic versions of m14's etc..

Its a good game model. There is nothing wrong with it.
