Mass Effect 2’s Cerberus Network priced

As previously written, The Cerberus Network — an in-game news and free downloadable content portal for Mass Effect 2 — will be accessible freely by those who purchase the game new, via a one-time activation code that’s included with each new copy. Those who go with a used copy however are required to pay a one time fee to access the extra goods, a fee that has now been revealed to be a pretty substantial 1200 Microsoft Points ($15) — a price point no doubt designed to push people away from the used games market and increase sales numbers.

The Cerberus Network will offer new missions and items on the day of the launch next week, and will bring more interesting additions like a hover tank later on.
