Deliberate error and you'll see why in a second.
Buy the Premium edition of Need for Speed Carbon and for the extra mulla you'll get a few more extras over the standard version, 4 additional cars, 10 pre-tuned cars, 6 new races and a Bonus DVD containing movies and music. Not content with extracting top whack for your premium version, EA have thoughfully provided even more content for you to purchase on xbox marketplace, when you return home. How's that for customer focus?
And here comes the ho hum dousy.......The standard version (costing you $59.99 or €74.99) has all the content on the disc!???. Yes that's right all pre-loaded and cleverily encrypted. So if you want to soup up your meagre purchase, it'll cost you the same price as you paid for the game to unlock it with purchased code from Xboxlive. How's that for customer focus?
I suppose we really can't blame EA, it's not like they know any better, but what makes this even more unpalatable is they are being fully supported by Microsoft's Xbox Market Place Service in this endeavour.
