Gran Turismo 6 Will Feature Microtransactions

Polyphony Digital's upcoming racing sim, Gran Turismo 6, will feature microtransactions, Sony has confirmed in a post on the EU PlayStation Blog.

Players will be able to purchase in-game credits by shelling out some real-world cash of their own. Credits will be bundled in packs of 500 thousand, 1 million, 2.5 million, and 7 million. Sony has yet to reveal how much each of these credit packs will cost, but here's to hoping the company doesn't get too greedy.
