Gran Turismo 6 money glitch found

Game bug means players can make $190 worth of credits in just a few minutes.

A money glitch in Gran Turismo 6 has been discovered, allowing players to make 20 million credits in a few minutes.

The glitch (via OPM) is achieved by buying a Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo with the 1.01 update applied, deleting the update, launching the game without reapplying the update, and then selling the car.

To purchase 20 million credits in Gran Turismo 6 with real money would cost approximately $190/£120.

Sony has yet to comment on the bug, but it's probably safe to assume that it'll be patched out rather promptly.

For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's in-progress review.

They aren't trying to milk you, they're simply offering the option for impatient people to get money early. They're not making you do it, the fact that you have to exploit a bug to get money shows how impatient you are. I have never even used codes unless it unlocked something otherwise unavailable in the game, such as new cars,guns,tracks,maps, or whatever. I personally had no problem getting the money I needed for a car required in a race by the time I got there. I did race a couple seasonal events about to expire that gave me a lot of money but codes, glitches and bugs are for the weak. Go ahead and use the glitch and buy all the fancy cars you can't wait for, defeating the purpose of lower level races. The type of gamer who does this will be putting the game down in a week because they're bored of it anyway. Obviously no, I will not be using this crutch, I can get plenty of money the way you're supposed to.

I would like to point out that this glitch also works with the BMW M4 they just added to the game. Its also worth 20 million cr. It cost way less than the Mercedes too.

Good screw microtransaction and screw the companies that use them


They are trying to milk you for every penny that they can get out of you.


Don't be good sheep and let them fleece you, take back your own goddamn games for christ sake.


This entire GT was built around the idea of making it take so long to unlock new stuff you WANT to pay for the microtransactions and thats wrong... 


And whats worse it none of the game 'journalists' have the balls to call them out on it not even in the reviews.

To bad you can't "cash out" instead of buying cash; 190 bucks in a matter of minutes would be awesome.

lol 'glitch'... sony must of really thought that no one wouldn't enjoy their game for someone to uninstall it to find this would happen.

Now that you know about it, I recommend you abuse the shit out of it before they patch the game to block this if possible. I did it with GT5 with car duplication, but that required users to be online, and thus requiring the patch. This is different tho, it needs you to just delete the patch, which means you won't need to be online. I guess they'll do some kinda check whenever u do get back online with a load of money, or maybe this one will just have to stay.

I don't need no money glitch to enjoy this game. I've raced for five hours now on GT6, I've already made 900K, more then enough to buy a supercar.

HA! "Bug"? Yeah right, even if it is it is still a way for people to want to buy the game right away so they can get a bunch of fake money after spending a bunch of real money.  There is no such thing as free fake money, you are paying real money for the game.

Sounds like GTA on the PS3. First off Forza is a better game second off xbox live is superior. Need I say more?

Anyone who has played previous GT's will easily notice that this game is designed to get you to spend more money. Previous GT's used to practically give you a car after every race. Now they make you grind your way to get enough money to buy car. Micro transactions are the wort thing to happen to gaming. It might have worked on those smartphone fools, but keep that crap away from our AAA titles!

Not sure how this can be patched away since this glitch involves deleting the patch.

worked...did it 20 min ago... the only bad thing is downloading the 1.2 gb update to do it again. instead just buy the car, downgrade, get the 20 million, update again, buy 20 mercedes, and downgrade, sell one car at a time,( since the game is capped at 20 million credits in v 1.00) till you run out of money and have whatever car (s) you want......if that GT5 trophy for the 1000 car garage was here, that would make thing easier...

Maybe this is a new way to boost sales. Better buy the game now before they patch it out.

These types of Micro-Transactions are insulting. Be a good consumer and say: NO!

funny how ( G ) rand ( T ) heft auto 5 and ( G ) ran ( T ) urismo 6 both game with GT in their name both have micro-transaction and both fail cause someone found a money glitch.

I'm expecting Sony to do a repeat of what they did when XP glitches were found in GT5 - they will send a message to the community threatening to ban / reset people that abuse the glitch - patch out the glitch then do nothing to anyone in the community.


Enjoy your free money, buy lots of cars you want, and expect it to be patched out soon.


Gotta love it when a game introduces microtransactions to nickel and dime you, then someone finds a glitch to bypass it - gotta love karma :-)

Holy shit i found a glitch at the bank, if you go to any atm, then use your card punch in the pin, you can withdraw cash!!

Use this bug as much as possible people and while your doing it send Sony an email sticking up the middle finger:D

While it's nice to know this exists (for now), being somebody who planned on grinding, I won't be using the glitch. What fun is the game if you don't have to work to acquire new cars and parts?? To me, part of the appeal is earning these... This glitch will probably completely ruin the online experience for me, but oh well...I suppose the *only* reason I could justify using it is to buy cars I know I'll realistically never grind up enough to afford...

@stevenstreet483    The 1st car I got rewarded with in GT6 was a Fiat $hitbox I think....I didn't even look at the specs of it, I could tell it was a huge POS. Luckily I got 40 million in credits from the "glitch" tho.

@stevenstreet483 You are bullshiting hard, ma boy.GT5 rewards you with cars only after you've finished an entire racing  season, not after every race. GT6  rewards you with cars after every invitational race, license test and  racing  season. Also, the game doesn't lets you know that you have the option to use microtransactions. When the game starts, you get a basic tutorial how you can make CR. by participating in races and invitational events. There is no mentioning of microtransactions. You're just full of shit.

can't you save the patch to a USB ?

@CruiserCaptain I agree, a quick way to make publishers stop this is to not buy the games that require it.  Micro-Transactions are pure corporate greed.

@solokingxrobert 14 tracks, no Nurburgring, no night racing, no rally, nascar. etc. etc. At least you can write the words YOLO on your Ferrari and think its cool.

@illnova1979 You still have to grind to get to the levels to use the high end cars you buy. I got a ton of expensive cars I can't use yet.

@ziproy @sleepnsurf xbox live is 5 bucks a month and PSN on PS4 is not free anymore its also 5 bucks a month. And if you buy xbox live when its on sale like i did you can get a year for 30 bucks. Stop being such cheap bastards.

@ziproy @sleepnsurf Yeah better you dont say more because you are on crack. Xbox Live costs a third of what you said and is better then PSN. In this gen, PSN is not free. Also, Xbox Live does not get your credit card info stolen.

@mapulaproasta x2 GT has never showered players with credits or cars. It has always been a grindy game. It a not like Forza in that respect, no idea why people think it was /is.

Oh it didn't reward you with cars or lots of cash? Then you clearly never played any GT game up to and including GT3. Since in the earlier GT game, they gave you a car as a reward for certain specific races. Races wich were repeatable and still had the car as a reward. And those races really were giving out a lot of cash, wich in GT6 just isn't the case.
