Kanye West slams in-app purchases on Twitter


Kanye West
'Fuck any game company...'

Like Katie Hopkins’ larynx and 5p bags from Tesco, in-app purchases are among the universally-abhorred evils of modern living.

But it isn't only penny-pinchers who object to being asked to constantly shell out on virtual goods.

Take, for instance, Kanye West – a multi-millionaire rapper married to a multi-millionaire socialite and reality TV star.

The affluent hip-hop star has expressed his disdain towards IAPs in less-than-polite terms on Twitter.

It's worth noting that West's wife, Kim Kardashian, has her own game app that takes full advantage of microtransaction opportunities.

Although we're guessing West is hitting out at games targeted at toddlers; his child, North West, is only two years old.

Do you think Kanye West makes a good point? Let us know in the comments.

"Do you think Kanye West makes a good point?"

Yes, one of his rare lucid moments. He's right of course, but I'd include all games, not just games for young children. Any game where its business model is fuelled by microtransactions has its balance wrecked. It's no fun if you don't pay, and it's no fun if you do, because it's always - always - just a pointless, endless grind where nothing ever changes.
