Whether we like it or not, microtransactions are now a regular part of the gaming medium. Offering small pieces of content to add on to a larger product, they can improve upon an experience or expedite what could take hours to accomplish in-game. That said, there are times when these microtransactions pushed the limit of what can be considered a small purchase, and these 10 in particular are some of the most expensive of all time.
10 of the Most Expensive Microtransactions in Video Games
Land Deeds, $50-$100 (Star Citizen)
Star Citizen has already made headlines over the years for the astronomical amounts people have invested in it, but some microtransactions that have flown under the radar are the lot claims and land deeds players can purchase. For $50-$100, players can buy a small piece of the galaxy to call their own, safe from outside attacks by prospective space invaders and plunderers who want to ruin their day.
Of course, it’s also worth noting that they can’t actually access and defend their claim to any portion of space until the game is complete, meaning their money has technically been invested in vaporware until the game is officially released.
