(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Concerns regarding micro-transactions in popular title Dead Space 3 took center stage recently with exploits allowing some users to receive in-game items without paying, a BBC report noted on Thursday.
Game developer Electronic Arts, meanwhile, has yet to comment regarding the issue.
Dead Space 3’s in-game system provides users with the ability to use actual cash to buy items – something that could cost EA money.
According to the BBC report, one such instance of cheating the system allowed the user to walk to a location, collect an item, leave, then return to find a new object available.
DeadSpace 3 was released just earlier this month – so users shouldn’t be surprised that kinks are still being worked out.
