Gran Turismo Sport Won’t Have Microtransactions

Despite Gran Turismo 6 featuring the same, GT Sport will avoid micro-transactions.

Posted By | On 10th, Aug. 2017 Under News


Though some racing titles – and several non-racing games like Halo 5: Guardians, Overwatch, Injustice 2 and the upcoming Middle-Earth: Shadow of War – have offered some kind of micro-transaction in recent years, Polyphony Digital will buck the trend with Gran Turismo Sport. In an interview with Gemo Show Indo from the latest PlayStation Experience in Malaysia, creator Kazunori Yamauchi confirmed that Gran Turismo Sport would not have micro-transactions.

The change is interesting because, well, Gran Turismo 6 also had micro-transactions when it released on the PS3 many moons ago where players could acquire credits in-game for real money. Credits could be earned by playing the game and would allow for access to superior cars.

With Gran Turismo Sport releasing on October 17th for the PlayStation 4 following several delays, this is no doubt good news for the community. Whether that means paid DLC will be offered down the line or not remains to be seen especially since most games offer free content despite having micro-transactions.

    Add to the list a glorified tutorial renamed as campaign. See the disappointment from the PS4 subrredit when Polyphony announced the details about it:

    It’s all to prepare people for online mode that the majority doesn’t really care.

    PlayStation… “for the players”.

  • Fweds

    I bet they didn’t mention it also Won’t have Day/Night Cycle, Changing Weather, many cars, decent looking backgrounds and no single player mode beyond a tutorial.

    But of course being Sony despite it being a Cutdown Spin-off it WILL still have a Full price tag.

    • LifeOnMars

      But will it have the Prius. ..

    • Fweds

      Not one American muscle car which the series used to be well known for, glad you prefer that one car but I bet the majority won’t.

    • LifeOnMars

      Not fussed about American cars, they’re Ok in a straight line.

    • Fweds

      Ahh I see the 5 Fake Upvotes have now kicked in on all your posts which more or less tells me you are “Mrxrat” multi.

      So no further discussion with you.

      Good day.

    • LifeOnMars

      You are so wrong as usual… what a looser.
      Good day…..

    • Learned Handgun

      It is xrat. He’s just that pathetic that he tries to trick people

  • mastalin

    They said that before and that changed so ill wait and see if it holds up.

  • Smart guy

    Well, that was the best chance of them making money since the game probably won’t sell that well.

  • Legionarius

    You know it’s f*’ed up when not having Microtransactions seems like the exception and not the norm.

  • Mr Xrat

    Another PS4 exclusive Xgimps are bitter about while they have to try and swallow another trash holiday lineup they waited nine months for. Give it a rest, saddos.

    • Fweds

      Let’s see, for the Christmas lineup Sony have ..

      A DLC game now being released as standalone at full price and a cut down GT spinoff that despite having hardly any features is still full price !.

      MS have …

      Forza 7. (The full game)
      Cuphead. (The full game)
      Crackdown 3. (The full game)
      State of Decay 2. (The full game)
      And some other titles that I’m sure someone can add.

    • LifeOnMars

      Let’s just hope they get the Xbollox in the shops before Christmas.

    • Fweds

      These are Xbox titles I’m not sure why you are saying “you hope they get the PS Protato in the shops before Christmas “?

    • LifeOnMars

      PS4 Pro is real,it’s in the shops now, you can buy one,
      Xbollox is yet to be released, let’s hope it is in the shops before xmas

    • Fweds

      You say “PS Pro is real and in the shops” but then you say “you hope the Protato (xbollox) is in the shops before Christmas” ?

    • LifeOnMars

      ????? PS4 Pro is real,it’s in the shops now, you can buy one,
      Xbollox is yet to be released, let’s hope it is in the shops before xmas

    • Fweds

      I don’t know what you are talking about so how about you give your opinion on Sony’s lineup against MS Christmas lineup as above.

      Otherwise people might think you were trying to divert away from the fact that Sony’s lineup is terrible and MS lineup is very impressive.

    • LifeOnMars

      You are off topic pal,
      “Gran Turismo Sport Won’t Have Microtransactions”

    • Fweds

      See post 1 (that is at the top due to fake Upvotes) the one I replied to, why did you not tell him he is off topic ?

    • LifeOnMars

      As I said you are totally wrong yet again.
      I have one account only.

    • Fweds

      I didn’t say you had more than one account I am talking about post one being off topic and yet you said nothing about it.

      You were also fine with going off topic yourself you know from …

      “Let’s just hope they get the Xbollox in the shops before Christmas.”

      ..Onwards

    • LifeOnMars

      Yes.
      Because you were off topic

    • Fweds

      The person I replied to was off topic not me, but it doesn’t change the fact that Sony’s game lineup from now until Christmas is Rubbish and MS lineup is very impressive indeed.

      This happens every year MS release their decent games at the second half of the year and Sony release theirs at the first half of the year and yet the Sony fanboy’s only want to talk about the first half of the year.

    • LifeOnMars

      Xbollox line up is uninspiring at best.
      GT sport will outsell Forza 7 on Xbox.
      Platstation will totally own Christmas world wide.
      Xbox brand are in a downward spiral.
      Xbox is is selling miserabley.
      Xbollox is too expensive.

    • Fweds

      You know when you have lost when you make up complete rubbish.

      Thanks for confirming that.

    • LifeOnMars

      Come on dry those tears, it’s hard to face the truth,
      If it’s too hard for you you can save face and move on to Nintendo

    • ReadySalted

      Are you suggesting GT Sport is a better game if it outsells Forza 7?

    • LifeOnMars

      No I I’ve not played any of them . I’m saying it will outsell Forza 7 xbox worldwide.

    • ReadySalted

      If that does turn out to be true, why do gamers need to care? Surely having a good game is more important than counting sales figures for the publishers?

    • LifeOnMars

      Because publishers need a return on their investment. The game needs to make money.
      If it makes a loss why bother making it in first place. Saying that… Forza 7 will make a profit as its on Windows also.

    • ReadySalted

      But that still doesn’t matter to gamers. Forza is a billion dollar franchise for Xbox and GT Sport previously was for PlayStation, so we already know they’ll both do very well. It’ll only matter to gamers if either game flops and they cancel future games, but that’s highly unlikely.

    • LifeOnMars

      In the short term I agree with you,

    • Mr Xrat

      Go back to Gamespot, you’ll have a more receptive audience for your damage control from losers like jerjef and ToonArmy.

    • ReadySalted

      What exactly am I damage controlling?

    • Fweds

      “Mrxrat” is a multi AKA “Revolver Ocelot”, “Rhubarbforfingers” etc, he is also using an Upvote Bot (currently set to 5)

    • chance

      True. I wish they’d bring back Project Gotham.
      That was the best driving arcade game I have ever played. The best driving game of all time imo.
      That flopped a couple of times and they cancelled it.

    • ReadySalted

      Project Gotham was such a great series. It didn’t flop though; Activision bought them, let them finish PGR4 for Xbox 360 and left the game rights with Microsoft. A lot of the team now work for Playground Games making Forza Horizon.

    • chance

      Outselling forza 7 won’t make it a better Game. Gt sport will still be an incomplete game that is a mediocre driving sim.
      I love Gt games but this beta was no bueno.

    • Fweds

      Notice the fake Upvotes on all his posts.

    • ReadySalted

      It is very obvious, isn’t it!

    • chance

      Mine is getting delivered to me. No need for shops I’m getting mine on day one at 11 am. 🙂

    • Mr Xrat

      LOL after nine long months of waiting you get another unimpressive rehash, an indie that MS first hawked three years ago, a blunder of the year contender and a game coming out next year.

      You forgot the ReCore re-release which might actually be complete this time.

    • Fweds

      Odd that you like to mention the first half of the year when Sony release their titles but don’t like the later half of the year when MS launch theirs isn’t it.

      Yes we can all say the PS4 titles are terrible to, you know especially the Niche Japenese titles that hardly anyone wants or buys.

      You must be able to see how obvious you are trying to play down by AAA games just because they are not coming out on your console.

      Here are those great titles again, also notice they didn’t need to release Forza Horizon Hotwheels as a standalone(and release at full price) to make out their were more exclusives they also didn’t need niche titles either.

      Forza 7. (The full game)
      Cuphead. (The full game)
      Crackdown 3. (The full game)
      State of Decay 2. (The full game)

    • chance

      This is shaping up to be the worst GT of all time. Hardly any cars and tracks….wth sony!!!!! Thats what made the older gts good and it set them apart from games like forza. Judging by the beta they need to delay it for a year or two until they get the physics right and enough content to be a true driving sim.
      I’m not sure why you think Xbox fan boys want this if this is going to be trash. Dirt rally is a better Sim than this. Just give up. No one thinks this is better than forza, drive clu, or project cars.

  • Rami Seb

    Another trash PS4 game that will flop into oblivion, then Xrat will use his 73 sock accounts to damage control this turd, RIP
