+1. I don't foresee any set of circumstances where I will pay $80-$100 with DLC to play a damn videogame from anyone. If that is where these console game prices are going...then I'll be shutting down the hatches on all of them. And moving on to something else...permanently. I don't play EA sports anyway...like Tyrant 2 said. But they publish for others too. So they can truly stick it! Only people with lot's of money to blow, fools, idiots and addicts will join EA on that gambit IMHO. These nextGen consoles and the games for them are increasingly looking like toys for only the rich...or wealthy (who don't know they are only about 6 paychecks & a job loss, away from poverty themselves). They certainly don't seem to be for struggling middle class families or the poor (about 80% of the population). Announcements like this are just indicative of how insane people have become in support of habits...not a hobby.
