What we really need is CM3...

@Akonyl Sorry sweetheart but when you change it to things that aren't even remotely similar it just doesn't work.
@HarmlessSyan Meanwhile the level of monetization is roughly the same as JP.
@Miraglyth Game demo included with another game isn't comparable to full video game being exclusively locked behind purchasing several other full video games, which isn't comparable to optional microtransactions in a free to play MMO.
@Akonyl Your comparison wasn't good in the first place, none of your comparisons have been. Sure you can say "oh but if I replace X with Y it shows how little sense it makes!" but when you're flat out comparing unlike things and coming up with hypothetical situations of totally incomparable things, it just doesn't work. It's not a matter of liking using one thing or another as an example, it's a matter of making fair comparisons (which you seem incapable of doing).
I get that you need Zonde / Cage for the roleplaying you probably do in your PQ, I'm sure a lot of ship 2 players feel they need it, but the games money making model is microtransactions and additionally we're not JP. It doesn't matter that it was given out in an event over a year ago in JP because this is global and not JP.
@Akonyl Because it's not a good comparison. Theres no precedent for a video game being exclusively locked behind purchasing another video game multiple times. These are optional microtransaction scratch items and bonuses, you do not need them to play PSO2 which is a free to play game.
You are paying to scratch the scratch and being given a bonus after reaching certain tiers.
