Spam Spam Spam Humbug: Episode 45 – In Which I Eat Crow (I’ll Soon Be Plump!)
Kim Kardashian thinks in-game purchases need to be handled differently: “Kim Kardashian thinks that when it comes to in-game purchases, there are appropriate and inappropriate ways of handling prompt screens.
In an interview with Recode’s Kara Swisher, Kardashian said that she was a fan of the e-commerce method and used it within her own best-selling mobile game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, but has recently become disappointed with the way other games handled the system. Although she didn’t specifically mention which games she had issues with, she used her daughter’s experience with a game as an example.
‘We were on a long car ride, and we were so annoyed that everything kept popping up and popping up that our daughter would cry every time the game wouldn’t finish playing,’ Kardashian said. ‘She just wanted to seamlessly play.’
Kardashian added that they, referring to her and husband, Kanye West, were ‘totally fine’ with in-app and in-game purchases, if the prompt screen came up at the appropriate time and not every two seconds.”
