People are paying way more for cosmetics...

Exactly. I know a handful of people who've spent over $100 on Fortnite.

I'd certainly buy it if it was $40 for my kids

The thing to ponder: part of the appeal of Fortnite is dependent on the size of the playerbase. It is a multiplayer game, after all. So, while there certainly are people who ( eventually ) spend quite a bit of money on it. . . would they be willing to spend that much on a game with a tenth of the active players?

Of course people would play if it wasn’t free. I’d pay $30 for the game which is the same as PUBG. Some people refuse to play the game as it stands and that’s understandable. I wouldn’t play games like Mario Odyssey, Hyrule Warriors or Xenoblade if they were free either.

I dont understand why it being free would make it less desirable to some. To answer the question, I paid 40 dollars to get the save the world mode to support the game and then earn free vbucks to spend on the battle pass and cosmetics, so all I pay is 40 dollars. The comment stating the person wouldn't play Mario Odyssey, Hyrule Warriors or Xenoblade if they were free really baffles me. I would have loved to save 180 dollars and get to enjoy those games.

I wouldn't, no. It's okay and I'll keep it on my system, maybe play now and then, but if it was a paid game, I wouldn't have picked it up in the first place. It really lacks polish and the gameplay is pretty simplistic. Easily forgivable in a free game, but not in something you've shelled out thirty bucks on.

It’s not really baffling. I wouldn’t want to spend my time playing those games as they’re not the kind of games I’d enjoy. I have access to Mario Odyssey as my friend has the cartridge for his Switch however I have zero desire to borrow it from him. I wouldn’t play it unless I was paid to. There are people who refuse to play Fortnite for free, a game I’d pay money to play. That was my point.

But people aren't rational. They will spend tonnes on microtransactions but refuse to pay a one off purchase price because it is perceived to be too much when in reality they end up spending more on microtransactions.
