    Sony’s mobile role-playing game “Fate/Grand Order” takes up most of 31-year-old Daigo’s time-and a lot of his money: His in-game purchases total more than $70,000. It’s worth it, he says. Devotees like Daigo have made “Fate/Grand Order” Sony’s most profitable game ever.

      "Though the game is free to play، paying for rolls increases the chances of winning." No it doesn't, the game is completely free and winning without paying a *single cent* is pretty easy for everyone... You pay for rolls to get characters you want and love that are rarely obtainable. That's it. Stop lying to the viewers.

        He's having fun, he's spending the money because he can afford it, and he doesn't seem like someone in financial trouble ... I don't know, you're the only one acting stupid here.

      EA Games : We're the most paid game in the world! Fate/Grand Order : Hold my sake..

    30. Kowloon Kurosawa

      I am never spending money on microtransactions unless it's DLC that actually adds to the game. I can't imagine spending $70,000 on a free game. Break the cycle people.

    31. USER_NAME1429
