Square Enix CEO comments on micro transactions

In an interview with MCV, Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda was asked about micro transactions, and why we don't see them in Square's console titles. Here is what he said:

“The way that console games are made, the volume of content, and how much effort goes into them, there’s something in that which doesn’t fit in the mind with microtransactions.”

This is nice to see for sure. Some have pointed out that Deus Ex did have them, so perhaps Matsuda is only talking about Square developed games? Either way, at least we don't have to worry about micro transactions in Final Fantasy any time soon.

Monster Hunter: World - Bounties Detailed

This week's issue of Famitsu has gone live with new information on Monster Hunter: World. Specifically, the magazine detailed bounties. Here's the new info:

  • Tasks assigned by researchers.
  • You can earn things such as Armor Spheres and Research Points for completing bounties via quests or hunts.
  • The types of bounties are as follows:
  • Registered Bounty: Can be registered from the list at any time.
  • Essential Bounty: Affects the unlocking of facilities and such.
  • Distributed Bounty: Distributed online at fixed intervals.
  • Bounties requirements include raw material collection, monster hunting, and so on.
  • Since you can complete quests while progressing through the game, it might be a good idea to register bounties before departing.
  • You cannot choose the registered content of Distributed Bounties, but they have better rewards than Registered Bounties.
  • There are some bounties which are difficult to complete alone。
  • Essential Bounties are extremely high priority. There are also things such as the subjugation of Kulu-Ya-Ku and expansion of the Ancient Forest camp.
  • You can take on up to six bounties at one time.

Famitsu also revealed that post-launch DLC is planned, including paid DLC for things like NPC costumes.
