Halo Infinite is a very good multiplayer shooting game, but due to many different reasons, players have a bad experience with this game, especially the excessive microtransactions.But it seems that 343 Industries has figured out how to change people’s perceptions of this matter: not by reducing the number or price of in-game items, but by adding Cat’s external ear canal–cat ear.
Purrfect Audio, as the new helmet accessory is called, is available in a four-part “Cat Lovers” bundle, which also includes Faded Blush armor coating and Tabby and Kat gun accessories. The bundle is priced at 1,000 Halo points, which is $10 for real money. This price makes me feel very high for a set of stupid ears to stick to your very serious super soldier helmet.
However, not everyone agrees with this assessment.
“They are perfect accessories. Even if they are locked by Mark 7, they are still suitable for every helmet,” redditor Riceatron wrote at the beginning of the lengthy now Reddit post“They are fancy enough that they are not themed battle passes or rewards. They are indeed the real purpose of the cash store, not to sell me ordinary shoulder pads and helmets for $10 to $20.”
Redditor StormR7 agreed, stating that the price of cat ears is “quite reasonable” compared to the price of skins in League of Legends. “The alliance system does not seem to be fair, and it (at least cat ears) is not fair,” they replied. “The cosmetics you get can be used on various helmets (only MK7, but it’s not that bad IMO) and add different twists to the armor, which is contrary to the traditional cosmetics in Halo such as armor and tactical accessories.”
“The first cosmetic I saw in Halo eshop that let me go. Well, I need to buy that, and compared to games like Warzone and Destiny, the price of the cat ear bundle does not bother me too much; it It was Coffemugofdoom’s admission. “I mean, in “Destiny”, an emoji can be $10, and the same is true for weapon skins and even Terminators. Although I am not saying that I like that everything is priced this way, but considering other games, this is certainly not an unreasonable market, because Halo charges as high as them. “

Of course, ear hugs are not universal, and the price also has some resistance. But as pointed out by several posters in the post, the number of people wearing them in the game is a very strong signal. Although they are expensive, Halo cat ears are definitely not overestimated.
The staunch opponents of microtransactions don’t seem to mind cat ears as much as the well-known cracks in the dams they represent. “I think we lost the war,” Kenai Choppa wrote. “You can see Twitter and other posts like’Ups! I’m in love with cat ears!’. They made a fake apology and align with price/MTX politics.”
Redditor grb13 is more important: “This post proves that you are all turning.”
they are horrible But damn cute, isn’t it?
