Now this is for a 'free' game. What if they implement similar model for a $60 game?
I just read about this game and how it makes you buy transactions just to play it drives you into microtransactions without no shame.

Taken from- http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20…acing-3-review
You notice the car you've just bought in a 13.99 pack is suspiciously slow in races, so you want to acquire the first of three engine upgrades that costs 44,000 credits. If you get 3500 credits for winning a race after getting tail-ended just once by another car, get handed a 2855 credit repair bill for the damage and then have to pay another 500 credits to get the oil changed - a job that takes 20 minutes to do, unless you want to hand over a little more cash - what's the final number?

You will as all future games from EA will have Microtransactions. I quoted that from my link in the first post.
