NFS Carbon Next Up With Premium Unlockable Content

Need For Speed Carbon is going to be the next EA game to support Premium Unlockable Content, or PULC (nice one Deac!) – which means that you can either play the game to unlock the content normally or pony up real mula to get it lickety-split.

Collector’s Edition Upgrade – $10.00
1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 – $1.00
2004 Lamborghini Murcielago – $1.00
2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10 – $1.00
Performance Drivetrain Bundle – $5.00
Performance Engine Boost Bundle – $5.00
Performance Handling Bundle – $5.00
Ultimate Performance Bundle – $5.00
Muscle Car Autosculpt Body Kit – $2.50
Tuner Car Autosculpt Body Kit – $2.50
Exotic Car Autosculpt Body Kit – $2.50

I don’t know about anyone else, but when it comes to games that cost $60, wouldn’t it be a waste of perfectly good money to then spend more just to unlock content that you’d get anyway if you played said game in the first place?

I’m sure that someone out there is willing to pay for this kind of thing, but where i’m from they call these “cheat codes”. And we all know where we get good cheat codes – that’s right folks, GameFAQs!

Here’s hoping companies start setting price points reasonably for stuff like this, because the world’s used to them being free. A low price is the only option.
