Millions are losing their jobs and these guys are pushing pack sales?

SDS

People who lost their jobs and are stuck at home are playing this game and the number one priority for SDS is to push shady pack sales?

Wow, this is a new low in the gaming business.

I have an idea, put out some fun content that doesn’t include draining your stubs.

I'd like to see them adopt locker codes, a reward for being a member of the community (not just the twitch community) would be nice every once and a while.

SDS

Twitch Prime rewards would be pretty cool as well. I know I know, "BUT MADDEN", but it would be pretty cool to get rewards for that service

You buy packs with in-game currency. It’s up to you if you want to put real money into the game.

Can still buy packs without actually spending money.

I agree to a point, but i dont agree with them putting the incentive out there. People like the idea of surprise and curiosity. They shouldnt be taking advantage of that during this chaotic time. Somehow i havent fallen into the trap.... yet.

And if they didn’t then people would complain there’s no content. It’s up to you to handle your gambling urges. I don’t see anything wrong with them doing their regular content. It would be different if they did this specifically to get money out of people but they are just doing their job.

Not that I completely disagree with the take here.

But it kinda is their job to "get money out of people", they are a business. I wasn't a fan of what they did today, but it is what it is.

SDS

These sales will lower stub prices. Which some might view as less of a reason to buy stubs. I like it personally. And I'm not buying stubs regardless. Your logic is questionable.

There are so many things wrong with these words, I'm not even gonna bother to try and educate you.

SDS

I wouldn't call packs content, especially when there's nothing new.

SDS

FYI - money spent is good for economic growth, money held is bad. Not that it applies to this anyway...

True. But it’s like getting mad at any company for putting out a new product right now. If you need the money for other things, don’t buy the packs. Don’t blame them because you can’t control your urges.

SDS

They’re not forcing anyone to buy packs. If someone doesn’t have any self restraint and don’t have their priorities straight, buying packs instead of food, that’s on them

Not being political here. Just supplying information.... Giving people or corporations money is not capitalism, it is socialism.

I've been fortunate to be able to work from home, but reduced hours. I'll be using up all my vacation time and still be shorted about 200 a month. Its also why I wont be getting PS Plus, unnecessary expense.

This game is about the only thing keeping me safe at home alone, but no way I can afford to drop any money at all.

SDS

A stub sale would get me to spend some cash I have budgeted towards the game 🙂
