Gran Turismo 6′s microtransactions detailed – £120 for Jaguar XJ13

Wednesday, 4 December 2013 22:55 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Gran Turismo’s most expensive vehicle, the Jaguar XJ13, will cost £120 is you insist on paying for it upfront rather than earning it the hard way.

Gran Turismo’s optional microtransactions allow players to purchase credits to use on buying new cars, rather than earning them through play, as has been the only progression path in past games. Eurogamer published the following microtransaction price list.

  • 500,000 In-Game Credits (£3.99/€4.99)
  • 1 million In-Game Credits (£7.99/€9.99)
  • 2.5 million In-Game Credits (£15.99/€19.99)
  • 7 million In-Game Credits (£39.99/€49.99)

The figures don’t mean much on their own, but the video below highlights the cost of vehicles in GT6; the most expensive car, the Jaguar XJ13, is priced at 20 million credits, which means you’d have to pick up two 7 million packs, two 2.5 million packs, and one 1 million pack to grab it immediately. That adds up to a whopping £119.95.

Gran Turismo 6 arrives exclusively on PlayStation 3 on December 6.

Thanks, CyberMarco.

    On one hand, that is absolutely outrageous. On the other hand, if you are stupid enough to pay for it, you only have yourself to blame.

    But it could be worse: the game could have half the cars and tracks as its predecessor.

    The game isn’t any different from past games when it comes to grind, according to what the media is saying. It’s just optional so use your brains and stop whining.

    Optional micro-transactions isn’t a good reason to ignore this game. The fact that GT hasn’t gone anywhere in 10 years and has turned into a clinical, detached, insipid and bloated dirge is a good reason to ignore this game.

    See you when you hit £10, GT6.

    Typical Sony fanboy talk right there.

    The most expensive car to buy costs TWICE as much as Forza 5′s equivalent. But this is a Sony game right, and it can’t be as bad? Hilarious.

    Now on topic: Any microtransaction that impacts other players (if you can buy yourself an advantage) is a BAD thing. It’s a negative for both this game and Forza.

    In Dead Space 3 it was fine, because it was only in the singleplayer game/CO-OP.

    If you could buy guns in Battlefield instead of unlocking them, that would be terribad.

    One of them is a next gen game with huge improvements in AI and visuals, simulations.

    The other has a majority of standard cars that look and sound the same with no cockpit view.

    If PD had to ship this out for PS4, you better believe there would be cut content/quality for that aswell.

    Depends if the game is changed to increase the likelyhood of you needing tokens.

    Micro transactions or not, as long as the economy/ race reward progression is the same as 5 I have no problem.

    @7&8 GT6 is not feature complete matching 5. Things like B-Spec mode aren’t part of the final package.

    Ill be more curious if that Jag will be available in arcade mode. That to me is the biggest bummer about Forza. Its one thing to never be able to attain a car for your career mode, but to never be able to drive it at all sucks.

    @9 Right you are.

    And while you fawn over Forza 5 and scramble around for reasons why it is better than GT6 in every way, I heavily criticise GT6 as poor and not worth buying.

    Eurogamer reviewer states that the economy and progression is unchanged from GT5.

    If you liked 5, you’ll like 6. Of course, if you didn’t like 5, you’re not going to like 6.

    While I hate this microtransaction thing myself, you should put the reviewer statement in the article.

    LOL yeah the downgrade is pretty intense. It still looks good, but it got dooooooooowngraded.

    And Hcw87 why are you so eager to defend Forza 5? It’s literally the worst Forza game in the series. While the gameplay is nice as always, it’s an unfinished package like the rest of the rushed launch games (except DR3).

    There is no reason to defend the shit stain on an otherwise awesome franchise. You don’t see people going around defending Devil May Cry 2 do you?

    Do you even own an XB1? Or are you just the biggest hypocrite ever? Calling someone else a fanboy of something, when you seem to be so far up Sony’s ass.

    I can hardly be an Xbot when i play on both my PS4 and XB1 every day, but i prefer Forza over GT any day of the week. Also when people make ridiculous statements about something they obviously pulled straight from Sonygaf, i love setting them straight.

    And your comment at @3 started this whole discussion, you obviously had to rib Forza 5 for some reason. Yeah, you’re the fanboy here.

    My VG247 comment history shows high praise for Forza 4 and a stream of hate for what has happened to the GT franchise since 4. But hey, I’m just a Sony fanboy, while you are an objective and unbiased observer, right?

    EDIT

    @20 Says the moron who accused me of fanboyism for one statement. And you call me a hypocrite. Stop talking, you are making an ass of yourself.

    So owning both console brands means you can’t be a fanboy? Then withdraw your accusation: I play my 360 as much as my PS3. And I have no intention of buying a PS4 or One until the first has better games and the second drops in price with no Kinect. But I’m just a Sony fanboy, right?

    Who cares? a lot of people do actually, I wouldn’t appreciate it if I had picked up a game which had suffered from downgrades and whose devs also didn’t mention anything about them, that counts for Ryse also.

    In the E3 trailer they probably had a lot more than 500 leaves ;) Im surprised they didn’t lock the season to Autumn so they should do away with the the leaves altogether.

  23. Joe Musashi

    I think there is more than enough evidence on this site (and the rest of the internet) that more than adequately disproves the notion that owning/playing multiple platforms means it’s impossible to be perceived as a deluded, flag-bearing, logic-dismissing, PR-repeating, dribbling fanboy of a single platform/company.

    @22
    You have to pause the game to notice the crowd properly at all. When you’re driving past them, it’s just a blur. And it would be like that even if it had real 3D high polygon crowds. So i don’t see why they should focus resources on something noone will likely ever see. I’d rather have the cars and the road/stuff in the distance look as good as possible.

    And there is a supreme irony here, lost on too many:

    The term “SDF” came into wide currency to describe those PS fanboys who struggled to defend their console of choice – the PS3 – after a poor launch against stronger competition. Guess who is in that space this generation? Welcome, MSDF.

    2007 “PS3 is not a games console, it’s a Blu-ray player!”
    2013 “XB1 is not a games console, it’s a TV box!”

    See what happened there?

    Of course, Sony turned it around with the PS3 and it has now sold more consoles then has the 360. Time will tell if MS manage to repeat that trick this generation.

    The moment you make it about the players and not about the product is the moment you lose the argument.

    If you don’t agree with someone, who cares what they think? Why invest so much time into other people’s opinions if you think they’re wrong? The vast majority of people using terms like “fanboys” don’t seem to realise that they’re guilty of the exact same thing, only on the other side of the fence.

    At the end of the day, these transactions are only an issue if the game lacks in content and forces a grind. Based on what I’ve seen of the game so far, that doesn’t seem to be the case. If it does turn out to be the case then yes, the game will be as guilty as Forza.

    Look here, earning money wasn’t an issue in GT5. You can get credits easily by doing the Seasonal Events, which is short and usually easy. Not to mention that each consecutive day you play the game, you get an earnings multiplier, which tops at 200% after five consecutive days of playing.

    If you still get prize cars after winning events and the same earnings system is still in place, then no, microtransactions won’t be a problem here.

    HEY, if they can make more money out of the rich folk, why not. They can invest with more to make gt7 even better , if possible.

    Or you could pay the same money, get 3x 7 mil packs and have 1 mil left after purchasing the Jag.

    (Notice the word ‘you’ in my sentence, because ‘I’ would never do such a stupid and brainless thing as pay £120 for an unnecessary digtal add-on.. Christ, even a necessary one.)

    So, before I start, FUCK YOU Sony/PD!

    I haven’t played GT5 much, only some races on a friend’s console and remember that the handling was as clunky as GT4. I was like meh!, so much for next-gen (at the time) GT game, also my vacuum cleaner makes better sounds for engines compared GT5. And seeing how they were releasing DLC, I said I’ll wait for a GoTY edition or something.

    My last Gran Turismo game was GT4 and I was going to buy GT5 Academy Edition until I heard the rumor that GT6 was coming. I tried the demo back in summer and the handling on the Nissan felt really satisfying, I wasn’t driving a boat on wheels anymore and the sound was quite decent too. I said let’s wait and see.

    Good job Sony/PD, nice way to screw one of my favorite games. There is no way I can justify MTs in a full retail game, never gonna happen.

    As I said I haven’t really played the career mode in GT5, but I remember that in GT4, you could get some extra money/cars from driver licenses and some car-rewards from tournament, that when sold they gave some big amount of cash. I wouldn’t say that GT4 required much grinding to get the cars that you wanted.

    I’ll wait (as always) to see how things will turn out for GT6 and its MTs, and as PD said they are going to have a steady stream of DLC cars that’s one more reason to wait for a GoTY. Probably going to buy it used too.

    I love PlayStation but this is bullshit, it should be like 50p for the smallest amount of coins and a fiver for the most. How do they justify those prices for something that doesn’t exist? Hope driveclub isn’t this bad.

    No idea why people get in such a huff about this. It’s entirely optional & you can always earn in game credits very easily- these ‘micro transactions’ are just a short cut for those with more money than time. Now forcing you to buy cars, tracks, etc only available with real life cash is pretty crummy.

    Frankly I’ve always loved unlocking shit in games (NOT trophies or achievements) which is why I get bored much faster in racing games that give you everything up front.

    #54 1 year ago
  55. xxJPRACERxx

    They don’t force you. Just play the game normally and everything will be like before.

    edit: @54 I hate unlocking things. I come from a PC racing sim background. Everything is available from the start. I don’t want to do 1000 races to get to the ones I really want. That’s what I really hate about GT. I don’t care about trophies and if I could unlock everything from the start I would.

    Let’s just quote from the Eurogamer article again:

    “Eurogamer’s Martin Robinson has been playing the game and tells me GT6′s economy works exactly the same as GT5′s, with progression, payouts and car prices very similar.”

    But hey, feel free to ignore that and go with a knee-jerk reaction instead.

    @49 Yes, indeed! Read through the comments just to see if anyone else picked up on that. Why pick up three different types of credit packs when you could get three of the biggest one for a single penny more, and have a million left over?

    Also, your second point, I would never buy this. But as long as you can get it by playing normally, I don’t care either way.

    Having never played GT5, I thought the sound in the GT6 demo was quite shitty to be honest. Was GT5 even worse? I played GT3 to death, it was probably just as bad back then.

  60. Christopher Jack

    @56, Completely agreed with you mate. I loved me old cheat codes on the PS1/2. Can still remember the jetpack & all the gun cheats for San Andreas. It is bullshit but at least ‘micro transactions’ like these don’t withhold anything from the game.

    If you’re going to do paid DLC don’t take anything from the game or use it as a way to recycle maps from older games, it’s meant to add shit. Exactly what’s preventing me from buying WWE 2K14. I don’t particularly care about the DLC superstars but they’ve been in the show more than long enough to adapt to the damn game.

    I wouldn’t mind them frequently adding people who have debuted within the month before its release or within the 12 months after the release before the sequel as cheap add-ons but no, they pick guys who have been well know for over 9 months before the game & take em out & charge you for them. In fact I take issue with all annual retail games now that I think of it.
