Gran Turismo Sport for PS4 has just been updated with a new track and a mix of new rides including an F1, classics, and Kei Cars aplenty.
Can't wait to come home from work to check this out!
787B & F1 W08!!! 😍😍😍 OH.MY.****ING.GOD. So GT Sport have just added my second favourite racecar ever in the 787B after they added my fave ever racecar, the Sauber C9 in the last update. Also, a gorgeous new track 😁😁😁
How many free updates has this game had? It seems like they're always adding to this game.
They're adding microtransactions too.
Yep that hurt nothing and are only there if you want one of the cheaper cars without earning the in game money to buy it. I've played the game since launch and them adding them doesn't affect me at all. Now if they were locking cars behind them or slowing down the rate at which you earn in game money it would be something worth complaining about.
MTs are okay if done right or in a certain way similar to how GT impliments them? That's good to know because I am sure this is how a lot of developers have or are going to add their MTs in their games. Everything nowadays just seems like a test to gauge interest.
OK and so what if they do? Add MT's to the game that only appeal to the small set of people that have maybe an hour to play a day or every few days while the rest of us continue playing the same way we have been? I see no problem with that. As long as the process for earning the in game money isn't slowed down for the rest of us who the heck cares. The game plays the same way as it did for me before this update and the rate at which I earn money remains the same as well. So why should I have an issue with them including them? OMG Joe who only has an hour to play a week wants to spend $2 of his money to unlock the car he wants to race with. What ever am I going to do with my life now that he has the option to do that? You complainers kill me.
@TGG Hey, if it's no big deal then it's no big deal. Let's also not forget how it was stated that there would be no MTs for this games either. https://wccftech.com/gt-spo... It just goes to show that MTs no matter if intrusive or not are an essential business and practice that a lot of developers will implement when necessary.
@TGGJustin What the Hell kind of excuse is that? So you're telling me that if I purchase a game and have less time to play it, it's good I could pay to unlock stuff easier? That's messed up. If anything Microtransactions should be targeted at people who like a game so much that they might be interested in a unique skin or something like that . . . Not at people who paid for the game and have less time to put into it.
@The10thRider Sorry to tell you but there is nothing wrong with aiming it at those people. You'd be surprised at how many people who don't have a lot of time to play might welcome that option. Aiming MT's at people who play the game a lot has done nothing but anger those people. I honestly can't fathom how anyone has an issue with this. Nothing changed about the game at all. It's like all you babies have an issue that some person out there might be willing to part with some spare change to get a car instead of putting hours into a game. It doesn't even give them an advantage over anyone else like Battlefront or many other games that did this.
Purely optional tbh.
@TGGJustin, If there's a game that I put in 100 hours in I wouldn't mind paying a few bucks for a skin that I like. On the flipside, if there's a game I don't play a whole lot why should I be expected to pay MORE in order to accelerate unlocks? It's completely backwards thinking and it would entirely discourage me from purchasing such a game.
Every month since launch has brought some form of new content or update, they really are supporting this game fantastically
So they have officially added Micro Transactions to GTSport. Something they said would not be released for this game. “3. A new option allows you to purchase cars from the PlayStation™Store. Cars that cost less than 2,000,000 in-game Cr. can now be purchased directly through the PS Store, in addition to your standard in-game purchases. The service start date will vary depending on the region. - Asia Region and Americas Region: July 30 - EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) Region and Oceania region: August 2” https://www.gtplanet.net/gt... Hmmm
Yes but at the same time their wording could've meant the game wouldn't have them at launch. They aren't harming anything and are only there if you want the option to buy them. If you don't then keep playing the game the same way you have been since launch. They even let you hide the option in game if you don't want to be bothered by it which is something I don't think any other game has let you do. They just force it in your face.
i agree, MTs aren’t a big deal to me in games either when it gives no unfair advantage and as long as the items can be earned through gameplay, but, they stated there would be no MTs in the game, he announced it and shouted it from the rooftops, and to a large group on this site, they consistently belittle cosmetic MTs in games (just scroll through the sea of thieves or forza 7 MT articles) that have said a MTs = no buy, how do you think they feel? I’ve consistently said i’m ok with MTs if it means free dlc, and i’ve consistently been shunnned or argued against when i’ve made that comment, and a response i’ve gotten has been “Gtsport is giving free DLC without MTs, why can’t _______” Well that’s not longer the case lol
So your issue is with what they said as opposed to how they added them? Ok fair shout, they implemented it in the best possible way though, no forced buying, no cars locked behind payments, no paywalls, no need to even see them, adding the ability to buy a car with real money takes nothing away from them giving free dlc away almost monthly, forzas loot boxes are nothing like this so comparisons are void, mts are fine if done right, which ive said plenty of times.
Sweet more free stuff, the mt thing had me worried till i actually read what they were, as long as they dont change pricing or prize money, which they haven't then all is good, its just another option to by the car.
What the f....Microsoft and Turn 10 are removing microtransactions from Forza games. And Sony and Polyphony are bringing them back?!?!
You couldn't buy the car you wanted in Forza, you had to buy a loot box and hope you got the car you wanted. GT Sport you have always been able to buy the car you want and you will continue to do so. This is for the few people in the world who maybe only have an hour here or there to play and just want to buy one of the select cars to use. Nothing wrong with that. People like me who aren't interested can continue to buy them with the in game money.
Please stop spreading your misinformed BS. You can buy any and all cars in Forza 7 and all Forzas from the in game showrooms without ever buying a prize crate or coming across one. I dunno where you pulled this nonsense out from but please shove it back in there because it's so far removed from the truth that all you managed to get right is the spelling of Forza.
Holy misinformation batman! Wow! Where on earth did you get your backwards idea that that's how prize crates work in Forza? Sir please educate yourself. You can buy any car you want in Forza without loot boxes. There's no chance involved, you simply go to the showroom, buy it and drive off. No loot boxes involved. No microtransactions.
wow. definitely you have never played forza 7 to see that that isn’t true. you keep defending this like it’s no big deal, and to you and me it might not be, but there’s a huge contingent on this website that are so against MTs i can’t see how it’s not a huge deal to them, after they may have bought this game under the impression that MTs would never be released for it, that would have never bought it if it had them . It’s really the dirty way they did it, instead of being up front and honest about it. No need to call people babies because their view differs from yours 😉
Adding Micro-transactions too! Don't forget that, I think its even more hilarious that P.D lied up their asses and said they'd never add them and then proceeded to. I know if Turn 10 pulled even half of this shit, N4G would start a petition to remove them off the face of the planet
Did they really add MT 's?
Wow, this comment section was highjacked by some concern trolling xbox fans. Lets ignore all of the free updates, and focus on something that doesn't effect the game one way or another. I don't go into xbox articles so I won't have to read their bs, but yet, here they are in a Gran Turismo article.
To be fair, the article highlighting the MTs was squashed because it's apparently covered enough in this article. That article was supposedly a duplicate of this so you can't expect people to not bring it up here. Also it's not concern trolling, people are outright pointing out the outright lie PD said before GTS launched about it not ever having microtransactions. It's a tone deaf decision considering what's happening with other developers.
Sweet but MTs why ? After promising not to
You can turn off the option to buy cars through MTs in the options menu.
Just found out about those micro transactions. Wow, Sony please! 🤔
i saw it calculated that it would be over $400 to buy it all.....that’s crazy
nice but how about adding a weather update soon
