    EA's Need for Speed: No Limits has petrol as an in-app-purchase

    If you feel the 'need for speed' but your tank is empty you can either wait or pay.

    No limits, except for the ability to play.

    Re: EA's Need for Speed: No Limits has petrol as an in-app-purchase

    As already said calling it 'No Limits' and having an IAP like that is a complete joke.
    Game looks reasonable from the trailer but I can imagine it'd drive me insane (pun intended!)

    I managed to play real racing 3 for a while before that got silly with wait times.

    The fastest, most heart-pounding experience you'll ever have in a 1.0L Fiesta EcoBoost.

    Re: EA's Need for Speed: No Limits has petrol as an in-app-purchase

    By making it such an obvious resource, they've probably screwed up a bit here. But charging people to continue playing is nothing new - I'd say it's one of the key ways that mobile games are funded given the range that I've tried. It does irritate me though - I really don't see the point in playing a game that I'm going to have to stop playing in 20 mins unless I want to pay.

    It just makes it very hard to know the final cost of the game. The App Store has created a market for lemons, this rush to the bottom, no one researches what to buy, no thought goes in to it, everyone expects everything to be a bit rubbish.

    Yeah one of the only companies that seem to of gotten F2P right is HiRez with Tribes and Smite. Either unlock stuff slowly in game, pay for little items you want or just pay £29.99 for the game that gives you everything. Thank you very much.

    Re: EA's Need for Speed: No Limits has petrol as an in-app-purchase

    In all fairness this is exactly the same as Candy Crush and other small mobile games, they are exploitative. But in a way they suit my needs; by being able to play them for a short while and then the "pay for more lives" model stops me playing for too long.

    I'm assuming the game will be given away for free due to the limited play and the key point is that mobile games are a small part of my personal phone usage, dont find them overly addictive.

    EA just doesn't have a clue when it comes to online games... the prices are so stupidly high in their other need for speed (world) and now they want to charge for an essential item in a car racing game...
