Gran Turismo 7 Microtransactions: Credits, car prices, and more

Gran Turismo 7's microtransactions are not particularly friendly with car prices and Credits being able to be purchased for a lot of real-world money

Gran Turismo 7 Microtransactions: A car can be seen on a track

Gran Turismo 7 is filled with more than 400 cars for you to collect, but that experience isn’t going to be the smoothest if you are a collector of fine automobiles. Gran Turismo 7’s microtransactions aren’t the most friendly and have a lot of drawbacks compared to other entries in the series.

The full car list is long, but the game’s microtransactions actually wildly inflate the prices of some of the best cars in the game compared to what they cost when purchased outright in Gran Turismo Sport on PS4.

With Microtransactions now being a staple of most modern games, the response so far has been clear: Polyphony Digital and Sony haven’t quite got the balance right here. If you are looking for an overview of Gran Turismo 7 microtransactions, then read on to find out how much Credits cost and how high car prices have risen.

Gran Turismo 7 Microtransactions

Gran Turismo 7’s microtransactions consist exclusively of buying Credits, which means that car prices have risen with this new entry. The Credits microtransactions in Gran Turismo 7 cost as follows:

  • 100,000 Credits – $2.49 / £1.99
  • 250,000 Credits – $4.99 / £3.99
  • 750,000 Credits – $9.99 / £7.99
  • 2,000,000 Credits – $19.99 / £15.99

Gran Turismo Sport allowed you to buy individual cars, which rarely reached into the amounts being charged for 750,000 Credits and 2,000,000 Credits.

In Gran Turismo Sport most cars were available for less than $7, but some of the Gran Turismo 7 legendary cars cost more than 1,000,000 credits, which means that the prices have risen by up to eight times. For example, the Aston Martin Vulcan ’16 costs $40 in credits in Gran Turismo 7, but only cost $5 in the last game.

The same can be said for other cars like the Ferrari F50, which costs more than 3 million credits in Gran Turismo 7 ($40), while in Gran Turismo Sport it costs just $2.99 from the PlayStation Store.

Pair that with slow progression in-game from Credit rewards either in Roulette Tickets or from winning races and you have a tortuously slow reward system in place.

Polyphony Digital hasn’t offered a statement on if this will be tweaked down the line but we will update this overview if they do announce some changes. For more on the racer, check out our Gran Turismo 7 review for our thoughts on the game.
