Crowfall introduces the player layaway program

    
36

If there’s a big juicy Crowfall purchase that you’d like to make, but your current funds are lacking, then boy does ArtCraft have a solution for you.

The studio announced today that it’s created a layaway program for gamers who want to buy an item or package that costs $100 or more. Players can plunk down a portion of the final cost and make payments over the next 18 months to resolve the balance. ArtCraft said that players can only have a single item in layaway at a time, however.

In other Crowfall news, the studio said that it’s 75% of the way to raising its current capital goal. It also hinted at new payment options and a refer-a-friend system that will be coming to the website this summer.

NoYou NobleNerd Don’t waste your time.  Some people are morons.  They actually think that the actual game developers are building the websites and worried about financials.  Shocking I know!

We are now steps away from MMO credit cards (like paypal credit).
Hilarity will ensue.

Wratts CrowingOne This. Layaway is another way to say “You could just stuff that money under your mattress, but instead we’ll hold it for you.” It’s a savings plan that you could do yourself anyway. Layaway is not the issue.
The issue is what are these games selling that could possibly be worth $100 in the first place, that they would institute savings plans for… but the complaints are mainly coming from gamers who also see nothing wrong with paying $180/year in subscription fees alone to games that still have cash shops, so even the complaints have to be taken with a grain of salt.

As for me, I gave them my $30 to get the game during their Kickstarter. I don’t need fluff to play the game, and if I do, then I’ll just chalk it up to a bad purchase and move on. $30 isn’t the end of the world.

Heh.  First thing I thought of when I read the word “layaway” was my monthly trip to Sears with my mom when I was a little boy back in the 70s.  Our first stop was always the layaway counter, where all the Xmas presents were stewing.  The next stop, of course, was the popcorn and candy stand, which made the whole store smell like heaven.
Simpler times.

NoYou  It’s not debt, it’s lay-a-way, thou I am not sure what the refund policy is. You don’t have to make a payment, and there is no interest charged in a layaway program, it’s a way to save up for something you want to buy.
*Never* in my life did I think I would see this for a video game, it’s usually used for appliances.
