Capcom to charge money for continues in Resident Evil Revelations 2?

From the newest Revelations 2 thread.

They were just revealed at the Spanish presentation event. You have to pay to continue if they kill you mid-chapter, if not you have to start that chapter again from the start.

WHAT??!



Seriously I need confirmation on this microtransaction BS as I'm about to cancel my pre-order.

EDIT:

Like I said on the other thread: they're not charging for continues. The game saves at checkpoints, and they're charging for an item that allows you to revive right where you died instead of going back from the last checkpoint.

You can also get those items by playing the game.

It's still shitty, but less so.

Google translation: "you can buy some crystals of life through daily challenges or paying with real money", there's a way to get these "crystals" without paying.

no way that this is true, if yes, this is going to be the scam of the year.

charging big moneiz for the game and then asking for more money to contine.

if this is a f2p i would have understood this but not this way.

if this comes true, people have to punish capcom for this.

We talking in game money or actual like money, money? lol
Both. They explain if you die in a chapter (they're about 20 mins long), you have to restart from the beginning unless you spend "life crystals" (which I assume you gain playing) or spend real moneys, which will allow you to continue from the same point where you died, without any penalties.

This won't end well.

Oh, so you still have checkpoints? Then whatever lol

I thought they were charging for DMC-like gold orbs and had you restart the whole level from the start.

It's essentially charging real money for those Gold Souls in Devil May Cry.



It's not super-egregious but what possible justification is there for demanding extra money in exchange for them?
