So, you all remember how Dead Space 3 supports microtransactions, so that those who can’t be bothered grinding to gather resources can just pay to win? And you remember how someone figured out a really quick and cheap way to gather said resources? And we were all like “lol EA” and rushed off to exploit it before the first title update removed it?
Well, Visceral Games isn’t going to patch that out, EA representative Jino Talens told Gamefront.
“The resource-earning mechanic in Dead Space 3 is not a glitch. We have no plans to issue a patch to change this aspect of the game. We encourage players to explore the game and discover the areas where resources respawn for free,” he said.
“We’ve deliberately designed Dead Space 3 to allow players to harvest resources by playing through the game. For those that wish to accumulate upgrades instantly, we have enabled an optional system for them to buy the resources at a minimal cost ($1-$3).”
Well. How about that.
