    @kyleyadlosky64 Don't quite agree. If they are something that's an added bonus (like hat's in Steam's games like team fortress) then I'm all for it. But if it's for something that I NEED in game. Then yeah, it's bull. To each their own. I'm not getting the game anyway so I guess this really isn't going to have any impact against me. Now if they do something like this in the next Halo I might cry foul.

    Microtransactions in a $60 game are sinister no matter what they're for.
