Eyebrows were raised last night when a version of Dirt 3 was shown off costing $300. Well, turns out there may be a justification for that. Provided you like remote control cars.

The R/C car shipping with this version of the game is not a cobbled-together piece of crap minted just for the game's promotional circus. It's an actual, professional R/C car, made by Traxxas, an actual, professional R/C car company for enthusiasts.

With a few modifications, the thing can do 50 miles per hour. It's also 4WD, waterproof, and on the street costs $550.

So the $240 you're paying for it in the Dirt 3 edition is a...bargain? Sort of? OK, not really, but if you haven't owned an R/C car since you were a kid and feel like seeing how far they've come, then this may be your best shot at getting a good car on the "cheap".

Or you know... you could have just read the WHOLE description on GameStop's site which said it was a "Traxxas" car... and then, oh I don't know visited Traxxas' website for more info. Also the "street" value is about $280 not $550... check ebay and google if you don't believe me.
