amazing how many people are prepared to spend their money on virtual goods inside games. It literally is money for nothing. The reality is under the terms and conditions, they never actually own the item they have paid for & when the developer ineviatably decides to pull support for the game, you wont be getting a refund!

Exactly, and we only need to look back to March 2015 when Sony decided they were closing PlayStation home pulling the rug from everyone who brought downloadable content for there avatars.

If people want to spend stupid money on stupid things in stupid ways, so be it. Who cares.

I'd call it a waste of money, but most things are at the end of the day. I guess as long as the people that buy this stuff know they're wasting their money.

Doesn't interest me in the slightest but as long as the people that are know what they're spending their money on, then all power to them.

Speaking from a personal perspective, I think this is ten kinds of silly, but I realise I'm not exactly the target audience.

Its all about money, companies in china dont care about their customers any more than they care about westerners (possibly less). It is amusing that virutual items are viewed as inherently less valuable than physical items, even when the physical items are only desirable through "fasssion" i.e. perception and one sided perception at that.

Blueberry should not have anything to do with China nor should any Country or company in the world with their human rights record and especially at this time with the Chinese handling of the Uighurs and Hong Kong !!!

It's not just the Chinese. Global affluence is increasing, but the amount of common sense remains the same (actually, it might be decreasing in some circles...).

Thus as time passes the number of people where Sense > Money is rapidly approaching zero.

It's good that the designers have had something to keep them busy over the last year.

In the real world, they wouldn't have been very busy designing tracksuit bottoms and hoodie tops.

Good advert trick. Still at least everyone as wants to can then copy the designs. From good all round views. lol.

Far more fun to build your own 3D characters, even game worlds. All easy and with free software. Clothes supposed design easy.

No. Private monopolies I am not overall in favour of. Should have been outlawed or vastly cut back long ago. Now it is just exploitation.

So now chavs, ie those distasteful people who break the bank to wear shirts and jackets composed entirely of their famous print, or with big Burberry logos on, will be in video games as well? Great!

The only items from Burberry worth buying are the iconic trench coats and the scarves, which can then be worn with other nice, understated items of clothing.

Love how super serious these comments are. Actually angry at how people spend THEIR money. It's literally none of your concern. Then you have other people linking this game, its company and the players to the way the Chinese Government operate. Imagine if other Countries thought we were all like Boris Johnson just because he's our leader.

You're all Karen's and don't even realize it.

Honestly I'm surprised this hasn't come sooner, most people aren't watching Paris Fashion Week, and in a post-covid world many have realised that throwaway fashion is just that.
I remember playing Burnout: Paradise and seeing Gilette vans and Diesel billboards, product placement is nothing new in games, making the leap to real brands, purchasable in-game, is not a huge innovation.

Burberry is just another one of those niche "iconic" British brands that has lost it's way in a bid to stay competitive in a global marketplace

Take a look at the latest "collection" and you will see why.

Personally, I don't see the point of buying 'designer clothes' for an animated sprite, but they're a business and if they see a market and can make money from it (the point of running a business...) then good luck to them.

I guess that everything that most people don't do is considered silly until lots of people start doing it... at that point, what used to be silly is then normal.

This is actually good news, it makes a lot of sense to get fashion designers into gaming. Firstly there is a good outlet for their creative skill and facilitates showcasing of talent - Secondly it wastes far less natural resources and encourages far less child labour, you want to change your wardrobe every day, crack on!
