Paying real money for Mass Effect 3 co-op items? How do you feel?

    First of all, I want to make this clear that I enjoyed both the Mass Effect series, and more content. I don't have a problem with it if it's done right (not accusable of being "the ending snipped off", like Asura's Wrath DLC), nor am I totally against map packs and more general content in the middle of the game. But why in the Hell are we being asked for MORE money in a game I paid £60 on release?

    I noticed this feature not only on The Angry Joe Show, but also when I played the mediocre wave endurance mode with my cousin. Please note that THIS IS OPTIONAL, and you can level up and spend your points and in-game cash on items. Plus, these items aren't all that expensive.

    But the question still remains, "why" do they exist? Gotham City Imposters does this, but does it well - it's a cheap Arcade game that sells a lot of DLC for a very small amount.

    My opinion would be that - while it's convinient - it's evident that EA aren't quite wealthy enough, and that everybody has money to spend in this recession.

    So what do you think on this matter? Is it a system you've invested in? Do you loathe the moneygrabbing? Or do you think it's a neat feature that you'd recommend? Just remember - we're all friends here ^^

    I am not one to pay for in game content with cash, if I have the points maybe but for the most part purchasing in game items is a little crazy. This is also showing that EA is getting greedy and they are doing what ever they can to get more money from people. Pretty soon like the EA online passes from EA we are going to see new weapons, armor, special so called unique items in games that you will have to purcase directly with a credit/debit card. Like yourself I enjoyed all the Mass Effect Games and Love Mass Effect 3 and don't think spending anymore money on the game is going to improve it for me.
