The latest PlayStation Store Update lists the prices for those Dead Space 3 microtransactions you’re all grumbling about—and they ain’t cheap.

The real kicker is the “Online Pass,” which is what anyone who buys Dead Space 3 will need to purchase as well if they want to play the co-op online.

Here’s the rundown:

  • Bot Capacity Upgrade – $4.99
  • Bot Personality Pack – $4.99
  • First Contact Pack – Free
  • Marauder Pack – $4.99
  • Sharpshooter Pack – $4.99
  • Tundra Recon Pack – $4.99
  • Witness the Truth Pack – $4.99
  • Bot Accelerator – $4.99
  • Epic Weapon & Resource Pack – $2.99
  • Online Pass – $9.99
  • Ultra Weapon & Resource Pack – $1.99
  • Resource Pack – $0.99

Before you cry foul, remember: these are totally optional. All of these resources can be found the good ol’ fashioned way: in the game. And none of this should really come as a surprise—EA has made it pretty clear they intend to incorporate microtransactions into all their titles. Dead Space 3 is just the latest addition to a growing roster of games that feature microtransactions, but aren’t dependent on them. And if anyone wants to throw down $5 for a suit and a gun, well that’s on them.
