Gamers are overreacting to EA's Star Wars controversy, publishers should raise prices: Analyst
KeyBanc Capital Markets says game publishers should raise prices for its titles due to the medium's low cost per hour of entertainment.

"Quantitative analysis shows that video game publishers are actually charging gamers at a relatively inexpensive rate, and should probably raise prices."

Star Wars Battlefront II - Is It Really Pay To Win? | The Good and The Bad
Lex: Its been quite entertaining for the past few days over at Reddit. Everyone has been coming from all sides to get back at Electronic Arts and DICE for the inclusion of loot crates, limiting a mode, and the pay-to-win approach just like what we see most of the time in free-to-play games on mobile. What the other outlets said about Star Wars Battlefront II being a hard-ass grind, thats true, but for the calculation of hours in getting the base contents unlocked is not something Im leaning on at the moment. I took some time in digging and going through the Star Cards and played a decent amount of hours in the multiplayer. Here are the good and bad things of the overall game itself.
