What a glorious video. Maybe the industry will check itself with all of this pay-to-win microtransaction bullshit.
Money talks. Just look below at what Activision executives are telling investors right now about "fans/whales embracing new in-game content".
AAA gaming is going to get worse along with more lying/false advertising (such as bait and switch marketing).
The PC/console gaming community has to grow a backbone and fight back. Fallout 76 should be dead on arrival yet thousands failed voting with their wallet. This greed (Fallout 76/FIFA/CoD etc.) is creeping over into other games.

Activision executives say fans are ‘embracing new in-game content,’ but community reaction all time low:
During Activision Blizzard investor call today, the company revealed that they are continuing to make staggering amounts of money from microtransactions from their entire library of games.
They stated that they earned $800 million in the last three months from in-game items across their franchises.
Activision also stated that their new “initiatives” that they are implementing in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has lead to stronger engagement from the community, and that they have seen a higher microtransaction revenues from Black Ops 4 than Call of Duty: WWII.
The core gaming communities that have interacted with the company for years have started to hate on them to new levels because of the lack of care for their feedback. Activision executives continue to show that the community feedback for their games, especially Call of Duty, is going on deaf ears.
Black Ops 4 has one of the worst MTX systems the franchise has ever seen, but according to Activision, it’s a model that is being ’embraced’ which is very worrisome as we look towards Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The company continues to embrace the RNG system with game changing items locked by supply drops even as lawmakers around the world are looking to ban such models going forward.
