NBA 2K19 developer 2K asked players to “contact local government” about the Belgian loot box ban. One of the 2K’s senior producers told Trusted Reviews (via PCGamesN) that its games’ Virtual Currency “is an unfortunate reality of modern gaming.”
We all know that loot boxes in games are literally like playing in casino but at least in casion you have a chance to gain some cash, in gaming buying textures and sounds for really big amount of money is becoming the norm and gives you nothing, well maybe a kickass skin but you know what I mean.
2K senior producer Rob Jones says that “every game, at some point, in some way has currency and they’re trying to get additional revenue from each player that plays the game.”
Changes in NBA 2K19 are trying to reward players for spending Virtual Currency more often, says Jones, and will better identify what’s worth spending Virtual Currency on in the first place – whatever that means.
The guy literally says that it’s up to you if you want to grind for a specific item or buy it straight away. He adds: “We know nowadays that most people don’t have the patience to work their way to the top. They just wanna be there right away. So, you know, we look at it as, oh it’s an opportunity for us to allow you to skip the grind, but then if the grind is too long, like some people felt last year, they’re gonna sit there and they’re gonna go ‘well, you knew the grind was too long to begin with.”
Is he literally trying to sell cheats? Remember… those cheat codes back in 90’s and early 00’s? What the actual fuck.
