Wait a minute, wasn't this game originally slated to be a free to play game based on the same earnings structure as Battlefield Heroes and Fifa Online?

Huh... I swear this was going to be micro-transaction based.

So, after some poking around the NFS World site, you can buy the "Starter Pack" for $20 and it won't allow you to download the game, or you wait until July 27th, and are only allowed to progress to level 10. Seems like someone really screwed the pooch on this game.

It is free to play...you can play all you like, just not progress after level 10 unless you pay for microtransactions. But you don't have to progress to play and have a good time. And $20 for tons of goodies and up to level 50? C'mon.

Lots of MMOs don't let you play at all (besides a short trial) without paying monthly, let alone a bit here and there, so I don't see what the problem is. A great model, I think.
