EA had been blasted by the fans over the in-game transactions for Star Wars: Battlefront II. They had the most downvoted comment ever on Reddit. It currently has 679,000 downvotes! Some players had worked out you would have to play solidly for 40+ hours just to unlock Darth Vader and uke Skywalker, but you could always pay money for them instead. EA have changed things and have stopped microtransactions…for now! “We hear you loud and clear, so we’re turning off all in-game purchases. We will now spend more time listening, adjusting, balancing and tuning. This means that the option to purchase crystals in the game is now offline, and all progression will be earned through gameplay. The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date, only after we’ve made changes to the game. We’ll share more details as we work through this.” The “available at a later date” does mean they could possibly just turn around and put it all back to it, but hopefully they will just stick with using that for cosmetic things such as different skins and the like.

Paramount Pictures, in partnership with Bigscreen, is collaborating with several tech companies leading efforts in the virtual reality space — Oculus, Samsung, HTC and Microsoft, among others — to launch a first VR movie theater. A viewer puts on a VR headset and sits in a “theater” in front of a huge screen watching a movie as you would in a brick-and-mortar theater. On December 3, those consumers with any brand of VR headset can sign on to bigscreenvr.com and experience Top Gun 3D in what looks like a movie theater. You walk into a movie theater, complete with one-sheets and a theater seating. It will even have trailers prior to the main film. In addition, moviegoers will be seated in a virtual audience and can chat before the movie starts to everyone next to them or watching with them – Deadline
