I know that from DDO & SWTOR (added in the latter in the last months of the last year, if I remember correctly).

And for SWTOR, EA stated once that Microtransactions are a huge seccess (although not citing SWTOR directly). And, even more, against common belief they also stated at one point that it is rather the subscribers - read : the more entitled players - who bought there, not the F2P players (the community fully believed it to be the other way round).
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
