Quit being cheap and pay up. $25,000 is nothing.
because people have this attitude game companies get away with this crap. I view game companies like I view political candidates. while campaigning/pre-ordering they make a lot of promises. when elected/launched you find out they were full of it and your lucky to get half of what they promised. in the end they both promise that only by you giving them more money can things get better.
$10,000 for a dress, $25,000 for a mask and $50,000 for a horn...while the best paying missions you've already grinded a 1000 times have been nerfed to be an even bigger, joyless pain in the ass. every update the new content increases in price while the ability to make in-game money drops. I don't think the actual car they used in Wayne's world sells for as much money as the one in game costs.
