‘They can be turned off.’

The addition of microtransactions to Forza Motorsport 6 recently has, obviously, been met with a fair degree of controversy- especially since the egregious microtransactions in Forza Motorsport 5 were the single biggest complaint that was leveled at the game.

But Forza Motorsport 6’s director, Dan Greenawalt, has taken to Twitter to defend their inclusion in the game, speaking in response to people who have called their addition to the game ‘sad.’ Greenawalt points out that Forza 6 was completely “designed, tuned, and tested 100 percent without [microtransactions],” and that, if they really do annoy the player or impede their player experience, they can be turned off entirely. In other words, Greenawalt believes that the implementation of microtransactions in Forza 6 is the least intrusive and cynical way possible.

Personally, I think the best way to go about this would have been to not have any microtransactions in the game to begin with- then again, with the game having failed at retail, maybe this was the only recourse for Microsoft and Turn 10 to recoup some of their investment into the game.

    Remember when Microsoft said Forza 6 wouldn’t have microtransactions? I do.

    Microsoft’s damage control doesn’t make any sense. It doesn’t matter if you can turn them off. That is like saying, “Oh it’s ok to have microtransactions. You don’t have to use them”

    The Microsoft defense force is in full effect.

    Failed at retail… Based on what? The community is larger than all PC sim racers and gran turismo and drive club combined.

    Anyways if you don’t like micro transactions then dont use them its that simple. The game is balanced so you never need spend a dime but some people just want to get a certain car and not grind it out. What’s the big deal?

    Clearly you have never played a PC sim because there you pay $15 PER CAR AND TRACK plus a monthly fee to play online so if you think Microsoft charging $2 for a few million in game credits you are a MORON.

    Micro transactions are here to stay because people use them so while you might not and I might not there are a ton of people who do.

    Again nobody is forcing them on you. Best of all Mr Sony fanboy in the comments has never even played the damn game yet bashes away at everything ms does and kneels down to Sony no matter what they do. Its absurd.

      “Mr Sony fanboy” aka TrollBotFailMK1 is a hypocrite, he is defending Micro-transactions on Uncharted 4.

  • Mr Xrat

    Xbox scum in the comments in denial that yet another Shitbox exclusive flopped. Hilarious.
