    Watched someone use WJ in Escalation and he didn't say a word. Also it seems that WJ, Perceptor, Ultra Magnus, Zeta Prime, and Blast Off will have to be paid for to use in MP.

    As long as he's free to play in escalation I couldn't care less. It sucks he's a mute, though. I would've loved if he had a G1-esque voice.

    Plenty of characters talk in Escalation, it may be because that person is playing alone. I watched a video on the prime, BB, Rachet and warpath level and they all said stuff.

    Clarify. What exactly happened that made you say WJ, Perceptor, UM, Blast Off and Zeta are paid to use?

    In the character creation area it says new next to them, and when you click on them it prompts you to spend points but the screen is blank

    Way to make us spend more $$$, High Moon. Because buying the game isn't enough.

    Ugh. I hope this isn't on PS3 (Although I wouldn't wanna hear the bitching from Xbox users), although it probably is if it's on the Xbox. Hopefully somehow we'll get him free...

    There isn't a price. Under the character let's say Blast Off it'll say NEW, but no price. But if you attempt to click it it'll bring up a menu. Kinda like buying stuff with Microsoft points.

    Interesting. I'm not familiar with how Microsoft points work but it sounds to me they might just be unlockables. Then again, everything is about the money so its very possible we'll be buying them. Guess we'll find out Tuesday.

    From what it sounds like they're saying, it opens up a separate window on Xbox. When you go to buy anything a white box pops up and asks you to confirm to make a purchase. Only this pop up is blank, indicating there is no listing for the content yet.

    Or at least that's how it sounds to me. If that is indeed the case, they certainly are for sale, not unlocks.

    It sounds like there might be more "new" pieces coming out in the future, this really is an interesting way of marketing them too. You log on, check out your bots and notice there are "new" options for you to buy right there in the menu. Could be kind of cool if they keep updating it with new bots.
