TheFeed admits when it is wrong.

In a post last week, we opined the micro-transaction model of golfing game Tiger Woods '07--whereby $2.50 would buy you a maxed out golfer--would most likely only apply to that title, and probably wasn't indicative of a larger trend for Electronic Arts. We (or more accurately, "I") was wrong.

EA annonced today it will be selling money in The Godfather game on Xbox Live. Here's a breakdown of what's for sale and how much it will cost:

 In-Game Money - $50K
Available in: All regions
Price: 40 Points
Dash Details: Add $50,000 to your game portfolio. It’s not a fortune, but it’s nothing to shake a stick at either. The money will be added directly to your in-game bankroll once you return to gameplay. This is a one-time offer; it cannot be purchased multiple times.

 In-Game Money - $100K
Available in: All regions
Price: 75 Points
Dash Details: Fatten your wallet with $100K. Maybe that’ll help you on your way to buying that new Tommy gun you’ve had your eye on. The money will be added directly to your in-game bankroll once you return to gameplay. This is a one-time offer; it cannot be purchased multiple times.

In-Game Money - $250K
Available in: All regions
Price: 150 Points
Dash Details: Add $250,000 to your game portfolio. Now we’re talking some serious cash. The money will be added directly to your in-game bankroll once you return to gameplay. This is a one-time offer; it cannot be purchased multiple times

TheFeed is distressed at this development, and imagines it will only play this particular title if it is really, really bored some night. We feel this will result in gaming experiences that rot for players who would rather not have their credit card die by a thousand tiny cuts.

Plus, it blurs the line between cheating and not cheating and effectively makes Electronic Arts into their own Gold Farmers. Hate hate hate.
