I shelled out the money because I play CO. I have 7 level 40 characters and am raising another right now (Cyborg swordsman). The uniform is a nice bonus. Once again, cross promotion has been done again and again.
No matter what my motives for buying the subscription to CO, they were still MY motives and I still spent my money. No matter if you feel my spending was justified in your eyes or not.
It does not matter to me or anybody else.
I am sure I could list tons of examples, if I spent the time looking them up. But I am also sure that you would shoot down every one of them as invalid, just to make your point.
This is a cross promotion. Game companies do it. It does not matter if you like how they do it.
So stop lawyering up on every detail and looking for an exact replica of this situation, because I doubt in all of gaming there are 2 deals exactly alike. This is just how the industry works.
It is a common practice.
And that is a fact.
