Dead or Alive Xtreme 2’s virtual boutique


Tecmo like many companies has gone down the path of selling extra content via microtransactions. No big surprise, but instead of using the boring Xbox Live interface they have a boutique you can shop in. In the virtual mall you can purchase extra swimwear for 400 Microsoft Points and tickets for Beach Flag or Water Slide for 100 Microsoft Points. Buying swimsuits with real money for virtual pin up dolls in a faux boutique borders on the creepy side, but maybe other developers will be inspired by a custom store front. Imagine the merchant from Resident Evil 4 selling you new weapons and maps.
