What does this mean for PSO2 on consoles, and the game's use of AC Scratch / Gatcha? Will Sega disclose the odds clearly now? Or will they refuse to comply and just make the game exclusive to PC?

The AC scratch page already discloses the odds for each item.

Like its said here, it's already public info by sega. They will just port it to Pso2.com with a link in-game if needed or requested by Microsoft problem solved.

Sega has always been ahead of their time, sometimes way too far ahead.

I remember there was a reason that they started to add actual percentages instead of just stars (like on the FUN scratch page), but I can't seem to remember when they actually made the change.

EDIT: Ok, I found when they changed it: 08 June 2016. It looks to be the result of a CESA agreement made in April 2016 that required the member companies to begin publishing the rates of their gachas before April 2017; this seemed to come as a result of issues like that one player of Granblue Fantasy who spent over 600kJPY in order to get the character he wanted.

oh it hurts knowing people are dumb enough to spend so much money just like that

thread name is good bait, going to confuse some people though or at least make them think this game may or may not happen because of out dated info

yeah the game is already running on ps4 and switch anyway; we still could use more info from microsoft on what they're doing with their servers, cause they could very well not even use the AC scratch gatcha at all if they so choose, at least, I think it's within the realm of possibility right now

Probably convert into a cash shop where you can directly buy what you want. Like straight buy 2K AC and buy sit 4 for like 1.5K or something.

It's a psychological issue regarding how our brains work and effect our self control. Not intelligence.
