Halo 5 Players Have Already Spent Over $500,000 On Microtransactions

It’s disturbing to me how willing people are to throw so much extra money at developers. I expect that we’ll be seeing a lot of this in future titles.

Earlier this year the Halo developer promised to add a portion of any income made as a result of REQ Pack sales to the Halo World Championship prize pool. Now, just nine days after the game's release, the team has added $500,000 to the kitty, bringing the total prize pool to $1.5 million.
