When Microsoft introduced microtransactions for its current version of Xbox Live, much of the hubbub was over accessories for cars--everyday stuff like spoilers, new rims, and paint jobs. Outfitting one's ride with some serious munitions in exchange for some cash was an absolute no-no. However, that's all changed today, provided gamers have a copy of Sega's Chromehounds.
Following last month's release of a free teaser of add-ons for gamers' mechs, developer From Software has made 10 new items for purchase over Xbox Live. Each of the downloads cost 100 Marketplace points ($1.25), downloading all 10 will cost gamers $12.50.
Mechs can now be pimped out with various upgrades such as light and heavy arms, spacers, generators, and a new color pattern.
Chromehouds is rated T for Teen and retails for $59.99. For more information on the game, read GameSpot's full review.
