“Halo Certainly Has the Potential” for Micro-Transactions, says 343

The love for micro-transactions is growing in the industry. Following Epic Games’ reported success with Gears of War’s weapon skins, Halo 4 developer 343 is now itching to go for a piece of the cake as well.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Dan Ayoub said, “I think Halo certainly has the potential for those kinds of things. We don’t have too much to talk about in terms of our plans down that line, but it’s certainly something… we’ve seen the fans of Gears are enjoying, and if it’s something we think our community is going to enjoy. It’s something we’ll seriously talk about.”

He then said that Halo 4 would receive additional content following the release of the Castle Map Pack this week. “Obviously, our commitment is always that we’re going to make sure there’s something for people to do on Halo, whether it’s playlists, or new maps or new content, something like that.

“We can’t say too much about the specifics we’re planning, but what we can say is we don’t take that commitment lightly, and people should keep their eyes open for cool stuff.”

So the ‘additional content’ Ayoub mentioned, would that be part of their new attempt at micro-transactions? Tell us below if you’re willing to shill out extra to pay for some in-game cosmetics or the like.
