EVE Online Microtransaction Uproar

Greed Is Good: Purportedly leaked internal bulletin shows CCP’s “refreshing” new direction outlines some of the crazy microtransaction item prices in EVE Online since the launch of the Incarna update for CCP's MMORPG. They also share a leaked internal memo from CCP that has been confirmed as authentic by Massively, that indicates that CCP may go back on their promise that they will not allow microtransactions to impact gameplay, as it says: "Not all virtual purchases will focus on customization: some will simply be new items, ammunition, ships, etc. that can be purchased outright." There's a post on the EVE Insider Forums where CCP Pann admits: "I’m here to buy time while we try to sort things out. No sense in lying about it so I'll call a spade a spade." That initial post promises to address three issues going forward: the high cost of goods in the Noble Market, unhappiness with the Captain’s Quarters, and performance issues with Incarna. As of this writing that thread has well over 200 pages of replies. Thanks James.
