Microtransactions Are An Unfortunate Reality Of Modern Gaming

Senior producer of NBA 2K19, Rob Jones, has state that in-game currency and microtransations are an unfortunate reality of modern gaming.

Jones informed Trusted Reviews that fans have have been complaining about VC, the in-game currency used in the NBA 2K series, and the way that it has affected progress due to the fact that the game is simply taking too much time to grind. Addressing those concerns, he explained the system is based on modern design and it is up to the developers to ensure players don’t feel like they’re being held to ransom.

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,” he explained. You know, the question has to be when does it feel like it’s a straight money grab versus when does it feel like it’s value added, right?

Jones also claims that the new NBA game will provide players more ways to earn VC through new community events along with an interactive hub area, which could potentially speeds up progression.

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.

The producer’s comments come after the company 2K requested fans in Belgium to contact their local government about the NBA 2k19 does not constitute gambling, after the publisher was forced to restrict access to certain MyTeam features in Belgium, and the Netherlands in NBA 2K, in order to comply with local gambling laws.
