On Free to Play games I think it's a great model, just keep them out of full priced games.

If they're going to be in normal games then they need to be for non-essential things (which is pretty much where we are now), or the price has to come down.

Path of Exile is a fantastic example of microtransactions done right.

Of course, we all know that every board member of EA will burn in hell.

I thought it worked just fine in Dead Space 3. Microtransactions are the new DLC, which was the new expansions.
