Yep, microtransactions are gonna be everywhere.
They're going to be available in Gran Turismo 6 , which is slated for a worldwide launch this week. We knew they were coming but we weren't sure of the pricing.
Now we are. Sony has confirmed the pricing for the GT6 microtransactions; you'll be able to purchase in-game credits with real money if you're so inclined. Those credits can be used to purchase anything in the game, from upgrades and customizations to new cars. Typically, credits are earned by performing well in events; that's the traditional way and most purists say that's the only way you should earn your credits.
But if you'd like to take the shortcut and shell out your own hard-earned cash, here's what you can get:
Sony did make it plain that they "do not require players to purchase or use purchased in-game currency." You can just buy stuff faster, that's all. If you want to get an idea of how much you could end up spending, it seems the most expensive vehicles can be as much as 20 million credits. If you were to actually buy one with real money, that would amount to over $130.
…yeah, I think I'll stick with the old-fashioned way, thanks.
