No they don't. They have DLC (small and a bit bigger). That is different than microtransaction we are talking about (altough, MP of ME3 does have some MT)

You are missing the point. Yes, facebook and iOS is filled with games such as Real Racing 3. But, EA said they want to add microtransactions to ALL the games. Don't you think that they could cripple the gameplay of a $60 game, if they based that business model on RR3 and Simpsons tapped out?
Would you play Dragon Age 3 where you need to pay real money to repair equipment? Or to unlock those extra abilities? Not to mention that they could implement artificial grind, just so you would be enticed to spend real money for convenience.
