I guess if there are gamers who are in the position who are able to purchase hardware every six months or through the year and can experience the full potential of games they are lucky and I'm all for it.
I have a bit of a sour taste in my mouth with the new Diablo Immortal and starting to lose interest very fast. There are articles all over the net showing A new analysis has revealed that it could cost players as much as $110,000 to max out a Diablo Immortal
character using microtransactions.
That equates to over £87,000, which is an absolutely staggering amount of money. The analysis points out that the highest tier Legendary Gems, a premium currency in the game, cannot be earned by players who don’t pay for them with real money.
As a result, to fully upgrade a character, you’d need to spend in excess of £87,000, on a game that has only been released on both mobile and PC.
Players cannot actually buy Legendary Gems, though. Instead, they drop out of Legendary Crests which are, you guessed it, the game’s loot boxes.
A separate Reddit thread
has claimed that the money needed could actually be much more, as there are unlocks that are only usable once 5-star gems have reached Rank 10. To do that, you’d need to spend $40,000 or more than £31,000.
If this is true I don't know what Blizzard is trying to accomplish.
Will Diablo only be aimed at the wealthy gamer? If so it's really disappointing.
I like messing around with my Sims but don't have the stamina at the moment 😁
