Merry XMAS from Bethesda

Bethesda continues to put themselves in the limelight, and yet again all for the wrong reasons. This time around its outrageously overpriced Xmas-cosmetics in the Fallout 76 Atomic Shop. When the content first was released, it was advertised as “50% off” and “33% off”, Bethesda was however slapped on the wrist for that kind of marketing. It’s actually illegal. You can’t advertise a just-released product like it’s on a sale, because it isn’t. IT JUST RELEASED!! What is more surprising is that Bethesda tried to pull a stunt like this. They surely have to be aware of the consumer legislation both in America and the EU, right?

So how about a Santa costume pack for 2000 atomic points, the equivalent of $20. Or an Emote Pack for 1200 atomic points, the equivalent of $12. The Red Rocket Mega Sign will be yours for only 1400 atomic points, but hurry it’s a limited time offer lasting only three days. Then they will have run out of stock. Two pieces of cosmetic content costing more than the actual game.

As usual: Vote with your wallet folks.
