Payday 2’s Microtransaction Nightmare Just Got Worse

Why are so many game companies implementing microtransactions despite the massive negative feedback from their fan base?

If you haven’t been following this story, here’s the quick version: Payday 2’s developers once declared the game would never get microtranscations. Then, it did! For $2.50, players could buy drills to potentially unlock specially skinned weapons that could also have better stats than standard weapon drops. Though Payday 2 is not a competitive gameآ—it’s players vs. AIآ—it felt unfair, especially juxtaposed against the comments made by the developers.
