It was reported yesterday (June 30) that the Xbox store page for the upcoming title warns about the optional add-ons for the game, leading to an outcry against Activision and the controversial decision. Moseying on over to the Microsoft page in question does indeed show that Crash 4 “offer in-app purchases,” which is never good news.

However, it seems that the wording on the Xbox store page was there in error, as Toys For Bobs clarified on Twitter.
