Got a spare $100? You could buy a virtual car in Need for Speed World

EA are charging $100 for an in-game car for Need for Speed World

That title is correct, no errors. $100 for a virtual car, in a virtual game, in a virtual world. One-hundred real dollars. EA's free-to-play MMO racer, Need for Speed World, has added a buyable DLC to its collection - a virtual car.

This isn't no Prius, it's a Koenigsegg CCX Elite Edition, and can be purchased for the tidy sum of $100. But wait, there's more. Steak knives move aside, EA are feeling generous and have slashed that $100 price to a nicer, $75.

Really, EA? Really, gaming world? Are we getting to the point of people actually purchasing $100 in-game items. There aren't many actual, full, AAA+ titles out there that are even $100. Let alone a single car, within an entire MMO world of cars.
