  • Guest, I'm signing an executive order to make Courier the official sarcasm font on UnionVGF.

Yeah, I posted that in the official thread too. They said they were not coming to GT Sport. Personally, I just want them to lower the credits for the cars. It's nearly impossible to earn enough credits to buy a single decent car without grinding for days straight. The daily award for racing 25 miles and getting a car is nice, but you don't get to pick and it gives you duplicates at times too.

Lower the credits....by at least 75%. Or making winning get you more credits...by 75%.

Not sure we needed a thread for this but hey, might as well bring as much attention to a non-issue as possible. Not a dig at you karmakid, but the internet as a whole these days.

Polyphony showing how microtransactions are done. Bring your game out, blow the world away with the pinnacle of racing sims and then give them more content as you go. No force feeding and begging for cash from the start.

They need to really make the VR portion more robust for me to care about this at all. Going from feeling like I'm driving an actual supercar to staring a giant 4k TV still doesn't do it for me switching back. I would actually pay money for extra VR content though, its that good of a foundation.

No worries m8

Maybe they’re just looking to recoup cost with the lack of sales and or disappointing it may be when compared to previous titles....

You see, Polyphony’s updated its websiteto reflect the May 2018 numbers. But the previous totals, as shown above, have disappeared.

To complicate matters, Polyphony has also specified the new total is sold-through. The previous listings were understood to be shipped (to retailers); this means Sport‘s numbers could actually be higher than 3.3 million, depending on how many unsold copies of older GT games are out there in the wild.

No clue, I don’t think any of the big three release that info. I’m gonna guess they’re all in the cloud.
