Optional microtransactions invade Call of Duty
A new absurd trailer is out for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and it showcases some of the crazier microtransaction based content, like graffiti riot shields, bacon guns, and benjamin bling pistols. It's set to hit the PS3 and PC platforms on April 12th.
As long as these don't start spilling over to new weapons that convey a pure gameplay advantage of other players, I'm pretty much fine with this. If you want to pay a few bucks to get a crazy bacon gun, considering the fact that the game is already loaded with content and skins, I'm fine with it.
Sadly, pretty much any DLC for Black Ops II on the Wii U side of things is yet to be found. I really hope this isn't the gold standard for add-on content on the Wii U from third parties, as they'll find their fans looking everywhere else as a result.
