Ridiculously Expensive In Game Content

What is with this new trend of ridiculously expensive in-game content? If you thought a $60 gun was bad (here), at least that has functionality. There are games now charging $70 for a in...a half a pair of glasses. I just don't get it. frown Thanks to Johan G. for the link.

If you’ve followed that, you’ll have realised that in real money terms the clothes cost around $17.50 each and the implant costs more than $70.00 (or four months subscription). An astonishing amount for an item with no in game functionality. For comparison, Bethesda’s often mocked Horse Armour DLC cost $2.50 on release, some 28 times less.
