Mirror's Edge Map Pack

The Windows edition of the Mirror's Edge: Pure Time Trials Map Pack is now live on the EA Store, for some unexplained reason delayed over day after its release was announced. Here's the official skinny: "Time Trial is a popular mode in Mirror's Edge that challenges players to find the fastest route across various maps. Players can upload their best time to the Mirror's Edge leaderboards for their friends to download and compete against. Players can see their friend's "ghost" run as they race their way through the course to the top of the leaderboards." The map pack is a $9.99 purchase, only available via digital distribution, and it should be heading to other online outlets soon.

A few maps for 20% of the cost of the game? Strikes me as a bit excessive, especially when you consider the amount of free content for TF2 and UT3. I just don't see the value here.

People complained that they wanted time trial/freerunning maps so they got what they asked for. Should it have been patched in? Not for me to say. People who think this is gouging need to head over to Xbox Live and take a look at some games that charge $5 for a t-shirt for your character to wear in some games. Mirror's Edge is also an unproven IP for EA, you'll notice their more popular games tend to get more free content and patch support than their newer stuff unfortunately.
