EA is getting into the Collector's Edition racket with an upgraded version of Need For Speed: Carbon on sale October 31. Here's what you get for $69.99:
- 3 new cars
- 10 specially tuned cars
- 6 new races
- 10 exclusive vinyl kits
- Code to download Mazda RX-7 off XBLM
- Bonus DVD containing behind the scenes footage on the making of the game.
What? No cat helmet
? Couldn't they have thrown in a Match Box Car or a spare tire? Notice that unlike Gears of War
and Halo 3
, two games far more likely to attract the rabid fan, EA thinks they can get away with charging extra for actual game content -- stuff that could easily be included on the regular disc or thrown up on XBLM. Is this a fair deal, or are you starting to get that Lumines Live
content gouge feeling?
