So it has come to this. I wonder who'll be the first to charge you to access the options screen?

Konami, you sneaky dogs.... :lol:

F#<{ Konami, so the saying goes.

Ah well, it's a good job that the game looks like a prize turd so I can save myself the price of it let alone the extra cost of buying a few save games.

This game wasn't really on my radar but there's no way I'm buying it now.

I'm with Jim Sterling on this; the AAA games industry is now fundamentally dishonest. The $60 advertised price for a game is now basically what you pay for a shell; you then pick and choose the bits you want (characters, skins, weapons, levels, number of save slots) and pay extra for all of them. And, if the company really wants to scam you, they hide these things in loot boxes so you never even know how much it'll cost to get the ones you want.

I've pretty much decided from now on that I'm not buying any game that doesn't function to a reasonable standard out of the box. Most stuff by Nintendo, Bethesda, Id and Rockstar is still made in this fashion, so are the vast majority of indies. So they get my money and the likes of EA and Konami can bugger off. If you want me to continually pump money into a game for stuff that used to come in the box then give me the game for free like Fortnite or whatever. I ain't paying you £50 so that you can spend hours trying to empty my wallet in the most sickeningly repulsive ways imaginable.

I'd say I agree would it would seem rather redundant, does anybody other than games publishers think this is good?

In this case I really struggle to understand the extra cost incured.

Tried the free beta, not for me tbh, it's basically a zombie survival game, so nothing I'd have much interest into.
