Assassin's Creed 3 (http://joystiq.com/game/assassins-creed-3) will feature some form of microtransactions, according to the most recent PlayStation Store update. The latest update (http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/10/23/playstation-store-update-262/) includes several bits of DLC forAssassin's Creed 3, notably five different packs of "Erudito" ranging in price from $0.99 for 20 all the way up to $19.99 for 950.

We currently have two theories. Either Abstergo has created a new brand of cheese-frosted tortilla chips for the discerning scholar, or Erudito is an in-game currency used to unlock content. Our money is on the latter, and presumably Ubisoft hopes yours is too.

What are your thoughts on this? I personally think it depends on how its implemented. If its something thats for lazy ppl why don't feel like playing the game to get unlocks then I am fine with it. However if its a system where you have to pay money to get the best unlocks because the requirements for the unlocks takes massive quantity of money (and is almost unattainable without no lifing the game) then I have a problem. I honestly hate that AAA games are going towards this kind of stuff. Leaves a bad taste in my mouth. F2p model should stay in the f2p market and should not be mixed with AAA games where we paid for the game already. Its just seems like another attempt to nickel and dime the community.
