Sony has confirmed that their upcoming racing simulator, that is oddly not available on the PlayStation 4, will include in game credits. Or in other words prepare to be micro transacted to death.
The in game currency will be able to be purchased in packs of either 500 000, 1 million, 2.5 million or a whopping 7 million.
Sony hasn’t yet revealed how much the packs will cost or if they will affect the balance in online play but if we look at how rocky the GTA Online experience has been I think it’s safe to say that this makes me worry a ton.
The growing trend of nickel and diming gamers is something I cannot stand, but it makes them a fortune and people will continue to pay to improve so I don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon.
I also find it amusingly ironic that Sony announced this information on the same day our local government announced that e-Tolls will be activated on the 3rd of December. Now all you Joburg people, please do the right thing and pay your e-Tolls. After the final demand arrives and you have made the government pay out more than you are going to be paying in.
