According to EA rep, Jino Talens, the recently discovered Dead Space 3 item exploit is ‘intentional’ and ‘won’t be patched’.
In fact, Dead Space 3 has been ‘deliberately designed’ to allow players to farm resources.
EA contacted Game Front around the recently released video and said the micro-transaction model was purposely designed to be purely optional.
Here’s the full quote from Jino Talens.
“The resource-earning mechanic in Dead Space 3 is not a glitch. We have no plans to issue a patch to change this aspect of the game. We encourage players to explore the game and discover the areas where resources respawn for free. We’ve deliberately designed Dead Space 3 to allow players to harvest resources by playing through the game. For those that wish to accumulate upgrades instantly, we have enabled an optional system for them to buy the resources at a minimal cost ($1-$3).”
Well, colour me surprised!
Dead Space 3 is now available
