This is ridiculous. I already payed so much for the game, why the hell are they charging even more for a few cars. It doesn't change the gameplay or anything, and I'm not expecting it to, but I am definitely not spending more money on a few cars. Ugh, they have too much money already.

It's more economical to buy the Speed Pack with all 12 cars at 400 MP than it is to buy 11 cars at 60 MP each. One car is free, but you'd be paying 660 MP for the remaining 11.

Here's some good advice: if you buy all those cars, make sure you have enough empty spots in your garages. There are 84 available parking spots. There are 80 cars in the game. There are 12 downloadable cars. That leaves eight cars without a parking spot because once you purchase your 84th car, you're not allowed to purchase any more. The game removes the "Buy a new car" option from the menu once you have all 84 slots full. Of course, you could always sell eight of your least favorite cars to trade with your new ones, but that's the hassle you'll have to go through because the developers didn't have the foresight to include a new garage.

I bought the pack thinking I could max out my collection to 92. Wrong. There's always a price to pay for a game developer's incompetence. Hopefully, they'll add a free downloadable garage in the near future.

If you don't plan to buy more than four individual cars, you'll be fine.

Note: After you use real money (via MP) to buy the cars, you'll still have to purchase the cars within the game (kudos). They don't get automatically added to your newest garage.

you paid 49.99 for the game mind you.... 10 dollars less then any other game on the console.. and its one of the best racing games ever made...

bizarre didn't have to make any new cars, they could have launched it on the 22nd of november and moved on.. (like forza!)

so $5 for their hard work, isint so bad, and the cars are awesome, especially the new Z06... if you dont like it, then download the free car and move on with your life...

They cost 0 credits, you just have to go through the hassle of looking them up and "buying" them.

Definitely!

As for the update, did they finally fix the Online Professional Glitch?

I'm pretty PO'ed about the tournament achievement, as if they aren't already winning cash. Give me a goal I'll actually have fun doing dry.gif

edit: nevermind it looks like they DID finally fix the only Pro achievement (checking Mygamercard.net lots of people have it)

...I'm still pissed about the tournament achievement.

the new cars are pretty tight

the new saleen s7 twin turbo is probably my favorite


the EVO is so depressing, the turbo sounds like a bird chirping when you shift, it sounds infinately better in real life.

the new Z-tune Skyline GTR is pretty decent

When I read that new cars were available for download, I jumped on that with the quickness! LOL It's sad to see that some gamers would re-purchase or rent this game just for a little square full of pixels and a small addition to their gamerscore. sleep.gif

now 11 new cars for $5 is actually WORTH that money, especially when the game only cost $50 at the start.

$2.50 for horse armor... NOT worth the money.

That's what I've been saying. LOL @ horse armor.

I just didn't like the fact that I had to sell eight of my cars to have access to all my new ones. I hope BC releases a free new garage to allow you to store all 92 instead of just storing your 84 favorite cars. LOL

yeah that really sucks that you can't have all the cars at once.

I wonder if this will change the "own all cars" badge... because I haven't earned that yet blink.gif
