Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare getting micro-transactions soon

Starting next week Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare will be getting microtransactions on 360 and Xbox One. Yes, EA still hasn’t learned their lesson on business practices that gamers despise.

EA’s Brian Lindley revealed this in a blog post saying:

Starting next week, players will be given the option to purchase coins from the Sticker Shop, which allows players the ability to access new packs and character content more quickly – all the same content that can be earned through regular gameplay. Now you have the choice to play your way; you can play to get new packs and content via earned coins in the game, or you can purchase coins to get more of the packs and content you want right away.

This comes at a very odd time post-launch. The game is two months old, I’m not sure how many people like it enough to still be playing it yet want to fast forward on their progress. Still this could be set up in a worse way and I suppose some people want this sort of stuff.
