You’ll remember in my PS3 GDC coverage, that Joshua mentioned PlayStation 3’s in-game shop integration. Well, here’s a pic from MotorStorm. (Click on it for a larger view.)
I think it’s pretty cool that you can buy things related to a game directly from within the game. No external shop to go to, with all the hassle of finding the correct game content. Instead, you have an interface right there in the game for buying stuff. Note that the additional MotorStorm track costs $2.50, which isn’t too bad. But I hope this doesn’t mean that they’ll only include a few tracks and then nickel-and-dime us for more. But I have a feeling that if that happens, gamers will vote with their wallets and publishers will learn real fast not to rip us off like that.
What do you think? (I forget where I got this pic, so I hope I’m not treading on anyone’s toes.)
