NFS World gets $100 downloadable car

EA is charging users of Need for Speed World $100 to download the free-to-play PC racer’s first ‘premium elite’ car. 

The publisher has listed the Koenigsegg CCX Elite Edition motor at $100, although it’s currently on offer at $75 until December 21st, reports GameSpot.

Although Need for Speed World is technically a free-to-play MMO game, EA has always charged users for extras such as new cars and upgrades in the form of paid-for SpeedBoost points.

Need for Speed World has racked up over 5m users since it went live last year. The title was co-developed by EA Black Box and EA Singapore, and is part of EA’s Play4Free label.

This seems to be a theme with EA's "how much can we get away with" strategy on Free2Play and social gaming. Their Theme Park app store game suggests you pay up to 70GBP for a single ride. An in game ride. I think they are basing their pricing on the fact that alot of children may well buy these rip offs using parents cards without permission. Any sane person should not spend that much on an in game item. However I expect people are - hence the price point not being changed. You could buy 3 copies of FIFA as few weeks after release for the same price!
