Exploit lets your farm Dead Space 3 items to avoid micro-transactions


EA must have been rubbing its hands together yesterday when Dead Space 3 launched after a couple of million demo downloads. Not only is the game selling for $60 across three platforms, there’s also the prospect of gamers spending a further $50 on DLC and yet more on micro-transactions during play.

However, EA’s coffers may not be getting filled as quickly as the publisher had hoped due to a bug in the game. It seems there’s an exploit that can be used with item collection that renders the need to purchase items using micro-transactions unnecessary.
