Microtransactions gone absurd

Angry Birds Go! has soft launched over in New Zealand, and Pocket Gamer is giving a nice little break down of how the game plays. Their hands-on has discovered that the game is heavy on microtransactions, one of which includes a $125 car.

There are normal cars you can get for free and rank up, but you can only upgrade them so far and the better cars all cost actual money. The Big Bang Special Edition well cost $125 alone. Great. Just great.

Important to note that prices are subject to change before the game is launched worldwide on December 11. Still, that's the age we live in now. Thing is, there are people that will buy this stupid car too.
