We’ve known for a while now that Gran Turismo 6, which launches tomorrow on 06 December, will feature microtransactions. We’ve already seen how the inclusion of this monetization model has caused no end of disgust from the Forza Motorsport 5 community (I also moaned about it here), so it’s going to be interesting to see how people react to Gran Turismo 6.
Gran Turismo 6 will use an in-game currency imaginatively named Credits. You’ll be able to buy credits directly via the PlayStation Network. The game’s publisher, Sony Computer Entertainment, has now unveiled how much you will be paying for the various Credit bundles.
These prices are from the UK PlayStation Store, which has already been updated with the bundles. I’ve just checked the South African PSN and there are no bundles available as yet. 500,000 Credits cost £3.99 (about R68); 1 million Credits cost £7.99 (about R138); 2,5 million Credits cost £15.99 (R275); and 7 million credits cost £39.99 (about R688).
