See how much it will cost you to buy more tokens in Xbox One’s racer.
80 * 100 Tokens @ £0.79 = £63.20 or you could buy 5000 Tokens + 3000 free – £64.99 ?????? MS maths
Now that's what you call value for money ;)
You think those who buy microtransactions are more intelligent?
So much for playing and unlocking cars the old fashioned way. Now we can all be elite if you have fat wallets.
Those days are over friend!
A lot of games have this. For Gears of War, you could buy skins for your gun. Madden you could speed up how quickly a player gets better. BF you could buy/unlock all the guns. I don't blame companies for doing this. If someone wants to take the easy way and buy all their equipment, let them. If some want to get 1,000 kills to unlock a laser sight, good for you. The nice thing with DLC, you don't have to buy it.
It is always nice knowing you bought a game at full price but the company you bought it from still wants to nickel and dime you. Microtransactions are only welcome if it is a free to play games and it is not play to win. This is a full price game with pay to win. WTF... in what world is this acceptable? Shame on anyone who pays for these extras.
If this is what defines next gen, I am not that excited any more. Let's hope sony doesnt buy into that too.
This may just be a Turn 10 thing as they're the ones who developed it. Either way, it's just a way to take advantage of the casual players or the people who want fast cars but don't have time to earn them. It's always sad to see this kind of stuff in games like this. Gran Turismo is doing something similar in their next title as well. I can understand the fact that you want to buy cars with actual money to save time, but isn't the whole point of Forza and GT to race with a mediocre car, earn money, improve driving skills(get used to the physics), save up for a new car and then buy it? I thought that's what the point was anyways...
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. http://uk.ign.com/articles/...
GT6 also has microtransactions. There was an article about it yesterday i think.
Pretty sure everyone's trying to jump on this help train. It's disgusting, and the people who are defending MTs are making it worse.
Play the game and you'll actually earn the money you need to buy the cars. I know, crazy, right?
This. I think a lot of people are somehow missing the fact that these tokens are paid shortcuts to in-game credits. This is not like a free-to-play scheme where paying additional money is the only way to obtain access to in-game content.
But it still gives the advantage to the guy with deep pockets, which makes it pay to win.
That's fair, and I don't really care for that either. In a way it's rewarding laziness. But by the same token - no pun intended - there are a lot of people out there who live busy lifestyles and thus don't have the time to grind through a game. Having this option can make the difference between enjoying a game and not playing at all in that case.
Okay, first comment, here we go. First of all, I'd like to say hello. Second, these microtransaction prices are ridiculous. Even though I'm (eventually) getting an Xbox One, and am a long time Forza fan, this is absolutely unacceptable. I wish they'd go back to the 4/horizon price system. You could buy the same amount of coins for $10.00, and they'd last the whole game.
Hello and welcome! Hope you enjoy your stay. Anyhoo, I don't like the fact that you have the option to buy tokens or coins or whatever to buy cars in the game, but at least that was a reasonable price. Now it seems as though they want to charge much more because the cars are higher quality and there are less of them to purchase. Wether the price is worth it is really up to the person, but to me, it feels like I'm being robbed. The game is already $60. Another ~$70 to buy a ton of tokens to buy cars with... That's not for me.
Is it normal to be banned after one comment? I'm an unbiased person and love both systems. I don't understand how I just got banned? Help me, somebody. I don't want to get banned again. I love this site.
Welcome to N4G. Come for the news, stay for the comments! :)
Not really sure why you got banned. I thought your comment was pretty clean and straight forward. I guess someone just hates newcomers or something =P Maybe it was a mistake.
Must've been a glitch, or a moderator saw something was wrong, because now I'm unbanned again. :P
Same thing happened to me twice when I first joined. They told me the ban-bot can get a little trigger-happy.
I buy cars in credits, not tokens
I guess the days of cheat codes are dying and replaced with a pay scheme
This sort of thing is a p*** take. Maybe if the game cost a tenner but not at full price. Rip off.
Pay for shortcuts?. Lol!
As if videogames weren't expensive enough not only do we have to pay for multiplayer also but now microtransactions for ingame items. M$ keep finding ways to extract money from their loyal fans. What will we have to pay for next
I'm kind of surprised they aren't charging us for the in-game manuals yet. =P
I hope it wont come to that:)
Turn 10 gimps the game and releases the rest of dlc for the same price as the game. People need to vote with their wallets rather than whine about this sort of dlc and buy it anyway.
This isn't DLC, homie. This is an article about using real-world money to buy in-game credits/tokens. The DLC / Forza Pass is an entirely different issue.
Well there go jobs for people who love to play games for other people and get paid for items, upgrades, or. Characters like in ever quest for example. :( Where is the fun in that?
