Hey, Star Wars Battlefront 2 is out today on PlayStation 4... But are you buying it? Just in case you haven't been keeping up with the news, EA's latest blockbuster has been drowning in a sea of negativity for weeks. Most of that negativity stems from the game's convoluted progression system, which places a heavy emphasis on loot boxes. The grind for unlocks can be arduous, with the publisher steering users towards spending real money in order to gain an advantage.

The backlash has been huge to say the least, with players and the media alike taking the title to task over its aggressive use of microtransactions. EA has seemingly been forced to respond to this tidal wave of criticism, as it disabled all in-game purchases last night. The microtransactions will return, but only when developer DICE has rebalanced the system -- hopefully for the better.

So far, this whole saga has been one to rival the storylines of the Star Wars movies themselves, but has it had any impact on you? Are you skipping Battlefront 2 because of this farce? Let us know your plans in our polls, and then have your say in the comments section below.
