Madden NFL 10 charges extra for, well, everything

by Ben Silverman

 Most games available for online consoles like the Xbox 360 and PS3 let players download special bonus content for a nominal fee.

But with a massive list of game-enhancing tweaks on offer -- many of which amount to little more than typical game cheats -- does the upcoming blockbuster Madden NFL 10 charge too much for too little?

Gaming blog Joystiq points out some of the game's quirkier downloadable items, which include everything from simple one-time enhancements (letting a severely injured player fully recover, giving all players a 10% stat boost for one play) to the more robust "Elite Status" download. For $5, Elite Status will let players "access exclusive VIP lobbies, leaderboards and play the all new Elite Gametype," which is essentially a tougher difficulty setting.

In other words, you'll pay $60 for the game, then an additional $5 if you want to enjoy the sum of its features.


Just a word of warning for the buyers out there.
