I realize there are lots of players who are going to opt for the fast track and purchase simoleans. They have various reasons for doing it. They've done it all along, so it's no surprise to me that it will continue. I had thought the ATM's would also enable us to transfer funds between sims on our accounts, is this not the case? I also question EA selling these machines. In real life, stores get rental space fee for hosting the ATM machines. They don't buy the machines so that some bank can charge $2 for people to access money. The stores make a little money providing a place for the machines to be accessible to their customers at any and all hours of the day. So, what I am wondering here is, why on earth are people paying $10k to purchase a machine that will not provide them any profit in the future?
