Well, it was only a matter of time, I suppose. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will soon offer in-game purchases for what Activision is calling Micro Items. These microtransactions, in short, will consist as "either personal customizations or nice little luxuries," according to Activision's Dan Amrich.
With a game as competitive as Black Ops 2, Amrich was sure to point out that none of these Micro Items will "affect gameplay." They are simply "small, specific ways to enhance your online experience."
