Yeah that bloke is a dope!

So in his summary there are no other options but loot boxes/microtransactions? Really? Loot boxes/microtransactions are the easiest of plenty of options. That vid tells me gamers are softening to the idea of pay to play and it's a done deal. Spaz is retiring.

Given that there's numerous reports out there showing that its cheaper now to produce AAA titles than it ever has been and, EA's current situation aside, major studios are making more profit than ever, his summary that games should cost more to eliminate pay to win / microtransactions is a complete farce.

Big companies are always going to be greedy and push for more profits, it doesn't matter how much the starting price is for a game, set it to $80 USD and there will still be microtransactions / loot boxes, I guarantee it.
