    Judging by how the last thread about "MTX in DMC5" blew up, I think this needed its own thread since it actually details how moves cost and how much you earn.

    Thank you, Dualshockers for details.

    First off how much a move will usually cost:
    How much items will cost:
    How much you earn in a mission on average:
    You get even more orbs for killing a boss:
    What is the 3mil thing then?
    How did the Dualshocker player felt overall about the system?
    Hopefully this breakdown of the actual system will give reassurance to people that thought the game will be designed around you spending real money on MTX.[/QUOTE]

    Until we see the game in full we won't know for certain. However, all the clarification from Capcom staff and hands on feedback seems promising.

    This is good, and will hopefully rest any fears. More than likely though, the people raging in the other thread won't show up here.

    Still, everyone who's worried should read this.

    Capcom giving players options is nice as long as it doesn't compromise the main game experience
     
  9. Plus with secert missions , hidden orbs, and I'm assuming the ability to get more orbs it seems pretty generous

    So it's just a time saver DLC, okay. No outrage necessary.

    Didn't DMC4 have similar microtransactions?

    Being the scrub who wrote the above, I'd like to make sure everyone knows that this is the current build (since it wasn't quoted here), so everything can change.

    That being said, I doubt the system will be made more draconian. There are plenty of gamers out there who have a ton of disposable income and don't need any encouragement at all to spend money on this kind of stuff, even if they could easily earn everything in game. When you can easily drop $100 on your average meal, a few bucks for a headstart on a game is nothing. I'm pretty sure this system was made to target them, not the average player who doesn't normally partake in paid cheats.

    While Capcom can take baffling decisions at times, this is the return of a valuable IP for them, and I doubt they're willing to screw it up.

    Everyone is touchy when it comes to MTX so making it clear helps. The buzz on the game has been so good with the exception of that theme that shall not be named that I think people were expecting something bad and latched on to this. I'm always going to be wary of MTX in any shape or form and while the way its implemented in this game(going by DMC4:SE) won't be as intrusive we still have to be on top of this shit. Now all Capcom needs to do is make Dante available from the get go and we golden.

    That special taunt sounds awesome. I’m still upset that we’re getting 100k red orbs with the deluxe edition. I’m gonna be able to buy a ton of moves or health right off the bat.

    You mean people got outraged over nothing? Looking at the responses in the thread, it seemed like there were a lot of people who were barely interested in the game and just wanted to bitch about MTX. The same shit happened with Sekiro. Maybe someday we will learn to wait for details before busting out the pitchforks.

    Exactly. Especially if they do it like DMC4 SE you wont even know they exist.

    I played through it on all dificfulties and never knew there were MTX in the game until like a year later when i was randomly browsing through PSN.

    Basically the same as every other game, then. Actually, way more generous than previous game. Actually, 20-40k for a boss is extremely generous.

    Why anyone would think DMC5 is balanced the same as Activision, EA or Ubisoft skinner boxes I do not understand. 4SE was extremely generous with in-game currency, so was vanilla SFV, and MTX in Revelations 2 and Dragon's Dogma were completely vestigial.

    Honestly this is my weirdo view on it but I like that these MTX exist for weirdos like me who might in the future pick the game up on another platform and skip the acquisition of moves by just buying them.

    I already went through the acquisition with Nero and Dante in 2008 and didn't feel like doing it again with 4SE. I don't know if that makes me a whale, maybe like a small baby whale. But I don't mind having 'skip' buttons for things like this.

    I've already paid for DMC5 on PS4 but at some point I'm definitely building a PC to play this game, probably not for another year or two but it's definitely happening some point.

    Its almost like Capcom has the ability to tweak this at will, and may be more generous with the builds they're showing early and will be less so when the game is actually out. Not like thats ever happened before with other games.

    The fact it's in here should worry people. I honestly do not get the people in here to defend this when the this is still nebulous

    Capcom can tweak any of those numbers so I don't think it really means much until the game is out. I'm not worried about it, but there is also no reason to really defend the microtransactions being there.

    Yeah there's no good reason to defend this, worse case scenario from the outrage is Capcom reduces the grind even if it wasn't impacted by microtransactions. It's still an awful mechanic. Says a lot when the best thing can be said about it is that it doesn't matter.

    Like Capcom would fuck up DMC with all the goodwill they've been getting lately.

    I half convinced that most of the people complaining in the other thread weren't even interested in the game and just wanted to outrage.

    People will make up their stories though, the amount of misinformation since Angry Joe started ranting about it is amazing to me.
    "Pay 2 Win" being one of the most stupid complaints.

    you are not forced to

    Schrodinger's Box scenario, whether is bad or not we wont know till the final product is out and we see "prices" and balance. Battle Front MT were on teh bad end for how "abusive" would have been to actually earn the thing by normal game playing/ progression
