    I have to say that I'm quit disappointed that the first download for this 7 month old game is something that I'll have to pay for if I want the new cars and city! Don't play it much and probably will end up trading it in if this pay for download thing is true

    This certainly departs from the strategy of free initial downloads with pay-for-premiums following. It would be good marketing-wise to whet our appetites with some gratis material. Not going to pass judgement until I see more details about the final product, however.

    Not necessarily true. The first downloads for LInks were $5.00 or so.

    if it's additoinal content like new cars or tracks then I have to decide if the cost is worth it or not. If its a patch or something alone those lines that I have to pay for, I will have a problem with that. I don't forsee that being an issue. I would be willing to bet that the software developers are thinking along these lines too but I could be mistaken.

    Jay,

    You don't list your Live tag any more. Did you drop the service?

    I underdtand it is 4.99 for a series of Paris tracks and cars. I think it is seven of them. Someone who has done it can chime in with specifics.
