The Division’s Premium Vendor: The Worst Example Of Microtransactions Yet?

You know things are bad when the game's new vendor system is described as the "worst example of microtransactions yet."

In The Division, your character is already small on the screen and blends in with the muted environment. Purple polka dots lining your thin backpack straps won’t exactly pop and they don’t make much sense in the world. I’ve argued for more creativity in The Division’s aesthetic offerings before, but grabbing a random Hot Topic t-shirt pattern and throwing it on something from an REI doesn’t make a lick of sense.
