@IAMCRAIG said in this is a new level of fail we must act:
that means Sega complicitly sold us ingame items that would effectively be phased out by NGS / It would imply Sega actively deceived us all.
How would this imply that Sega deceived you/us?
When Sega sells you a costume, they are just doing that, selling you that costume, in that point in time, for that character and that game, in no way, shape or form does that sale constitute a contract of long term permanence or ensure that the costume will stay relevant ad aeternum.
The costume stays where it is, in your character, on PSO2 where you purchased it, and it will not disappear from your possession unless you purposefully get rid of it or trade it for meseta or other goods, so you were not deceived at all.
You can continue to use it in the game you purchased it, in the same fashion that you purchased it, you did not lose the item or the right.
So how is it a scam or a deception, that the costume in question has limited use on the next game?
