Because why trust gaming companies? You give them an inch, and some of them are going to take a mile.
Some MTX’s are already crazy expensive. Make them limited availability and you are creating a new economy over digital goods.
They word it to say it’s for the player, when we know it’s just to put money in their pocket. The more money they make, then the more prevalent and higher priced they will become.
Imagine scalpers buying up and selling these things. I worry that games would become even less about having fun and being catered more to being an online marketplace toward digital goods. For items that don’t physically exist.
All my opinion of course.
