If you didn't know I'm sorry to break the news to you, but the next Gran Turismo game is going to have micro-transactions. That's right if you want to you can play the game as usual and earn your way to the newer cars, or you can just pay to have the game unlock them for you. Because why play when you can pay, right?
This was revealed in a video (via Eurogamer) that shows the prices of every car within the game. It's not just the special ones that you can buy, you can literally pay for every single one if you want to, though that would quickly get expensive, as some cars cost a lot of money. One in particular, the Jaguar XJ13, would set you back almost £120. There's also multiple cars that cost £30 each and many more that cost at least £10, meaning you'd have to put hundreds into the game to unlock everything – making it a very ill advised strategy.
Check out the video of the cars in-game credit costs here:[yframe url='http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaiI2fUpXBs']
But you'll need to know how much those credits cost to the do the conversion:
- 500,000 In-Game Credits – £3.99
- 1 Million In-Game Credits – £7.99
- 2,500,000 In-Game Credits – £15.99
- 7 Million In-Game Credits – £39.99
The question at this point, is whether the inclusion of micro-transactions means it'll be even harder to unlock the cars normally? Sony has said that it won't, instead suggesting that the micro-transactions allow a quick fast track if players want it.
Kitguru Says: What do you think of these micro-transactions for every car? As long as it doesn't affect the game it doesn't bother me too much. I won't pay for them. If someone else wants to help fund the development of the next game beyond buying the full version of this one, I have no problem wit that.
