Even though it never surprises me, it always disappoints me to see games media pundits fall over themselves to repeat corporate propaganda in defense of corporate garbage.
The arrival of the PS5 and Xbox Series X has been used as an excuse to finally raise game prices… after years of using fixed game prices as an excuse to fill their games with predatory monetization. I wonder how they’ll justify their microtransactions now!
At any rate, the obligatory chorus of apologists are backing up the decision with one heck of an argument. The exact same argument they’ve been using to justify publisher nastiness for years and years and years.
