We were all just a little terrified when we heard of upcoming MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic being microtransaction-based
. But it's already been beaten to the punch by Station Cash, a microtransaction system just rolled out in EverQuest
and EverQuest II
Unsurprisingly, the system seems similar to the PSN scheme, with players putting money into a virtual wallet, 100SC for $1.00.
It sounds fine for people looking to hurry up and beat EQ II
already so they can play WoW
with everyone else, we'd just prefer it stay far, far away from games we actually have an interest in playing.
