Everyone quit the game 1 week after release so they're giving you free garbage so you come back and get into their sexy microtransaction simulation.

kind of like when you brought home your report card as a kid lol.

Microsoft: Let's make 30% of a game and charge people full price for it, and then give them some of the contents that should have been in the game at the first place for free...

Something like this has to be free. Who would pay for a couple of cars?

#13 Edited by tymeservesfate (1469 posts) -

the same people who would buy anything for a video game. people have put money towards way less(horse armor). either way, this is a free giveaway for an Xbox One launch title...not sure why some feel it should be swept under the rug or ignored.

the new Gran Turismo is loaded with micro-transactions...is that case fine or are we playing favorites?

@tymeservesfate: It's nice you get free stuff. But just because you got a few free cars doesn't mean you have the best console. You barely have any exclusive content when it comes to multiplat games

#18 Posted by navyguy21 (12694 posts) -

Well of course they are FREE.

They cut half of the cars out to make launch. They are just adding what shouldve been there in the first place.

Maybe it would be more interesting if the game looked good to begin with.

#20 Edited by tymeservesfate (1469 posts) -

@navyguy21 nah...ur new company, Sony, is about to run you guys into to the ground with micro-transactions and extra fees anyway. writings on the wall just from the Deep Down, Gran Turismo, Playstation Now news. Sony is hurting for money...and its gonna have you guys flip the bill. charges for apps, f2p games, dlc a little of everything...its all going to pile up on cows this gen. you picked the wrong time to switch it up imo Navy.

so why not celebrate free while we can...whether its MS or otherwise :)

i never said anything about the XB1 being the best console. but either way, the system does just fine with extra multiplat content. they only really do it with big name titles though...like COD and FIFA. with titles guaranteed to push sales. the only big title Sony has done it for is Destiny so far i think...and that's mainly because it will be the first taste of Bungies work for a few Playstation loyalists. it makes sense for them to get extra content for that title and not just purchasing content for every niche title they can get their hands on like Sony usually does.

They only have timed exclusive with COD and only the ultimate team legends pack with FIFA. PS4 has extra content when it comes to WAtch Dogs, AC IV, Destiny and other games. Sony actually does a lot better. Same goes for Battlefield when it comes to DLC, it's only timed exclusive. But stuff like this is good. I hope this DLC doesn't require you to have Live though

Guess its not your fault you are fascinated by a simplistic arcade racer that pretends to be a sim. You are exactly the kind of casual fan Microsoft was after.

does it matter though lol. a lot of times Microsoft's timed content lasts until way after release...they get the early adopter sales then throw Sony the scraps. MS is just interested in hitting first. after that Sony can take whats left. its a sound business plan...buy the content for less money it would cost to buy it for the lifetime of the title...get the sales of the people who are passionate about the game...leave whats leftover for Sony when its less shiny. MS manages they're investments better than Sony...thats all timed exclusives are showing.

and the only big title there is Assassin's Creed...its an established title. the other two are crap shoots because they're new. they might pay off but its not guaranteed. when it's guaranteed, you'll see MS invest money into content.

#26 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69046 posts) -

@tymeservesfate:

Activision Blizzard – Diablo III content

Atlus

Bethesda Games – The Elder Scrolls Online exclusive PlayStation 4 beta

Bluepoint Games – “Bringing a Sony classic to current game systems”

Bungie – Destiny content

Disney Interactive

EA

Insomniac Games

Konami

Level-5

Nordic Games

Rockstar Games

Sanzaru Games

Sega

Square Enix

Sumo Digital

Take-Two

Ubisoft – Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag content, Watch Dogs content

Warner Bros. – Batman: Arkham Origins cntent

Zindagi Games

That's no small amount in my book.

Also there are many gamers that do have the patience like myself that think this is more an annoyance than a perk

i've never purchased a Forza game in my life.

#28 Posted by tymeservesfate (1469 posts) -

@The_Last_Ride: you've basically proved my last post completely with ur last post. what else can I say but iI agree. except that business wise its stupid for Sony to throw money all those places instead of just the big name games that are popular NOW. keyword "now".

also, why do cows always namedrop Diablo 3? itson Xbox pplatforms as well...so why try to force it in as a win when its a multiplats?

#29 Posted by Krelian-co (10052 posts) -

isn't forza 5 the game that has like 50 cars sold as dlc? how many come with the retail game? 8?

#30 Posted by R4gn4r0k (16092 posts) -

Free DLC must really be something rare on consoles, when you feel you need to make a thread about it because it's so special.

#31 Posted by tymeservesfate (1469 posts) -

@R4gn0k: wow, im in awe of your glorious PC and the gifts it gives, shiny graphics too...AWE!

*sarcasm*

yes, PC gets more free content than consoles.

this is pathetic. you can play the entire game without any micro transactions, the economy has been rebalanced since launch so that every car is available much quicker.

Funny how according to GS review, The Gran Turismo 6 states this :-

This leaves the newly introduced microtransactions as the only option for busy players to acquire the best cars. One million credits cost £7.99, but the most expensive cars in the game are worth around 20 million credits, costing upward of £100 in real money.

It goes on to say "spending money is entirely optional" just as is the case with Forza.

over 200 actually, all stunningly modeled inside and out. all customisable with paint schemes, community designs, etc.

I would bet any money that they can't.

Certainly not cars to Forza/GT standard.

The difference is the exclusive content

#37 Edited by juarbles (801 posts) -

Only xboners get excited about Microsoft giving them crap like this. xboners hike up your standards and maybe one day you can start calling yourselves real gamers although, IMO, you're all a lost cause.

Love the Honda CRX, played a good hour with it yesterday in D class online racing so much fun.

@tymeservesfate: well said. Any good news about Xbox doing well by consumers is brushed off here because its a cow pasture. I'm not a big racing fan, so doubt I'll even get forza when I get me one. But its cool to get something free. I have to let my live gold and plus subscriptions expire for financial, school, living arrangement reasons in the next 2 months. Two years of plus, and all I'm going to have to show gor it is x amount of useless gigs on my HDD. Some free games. If I had a 360 at least I could still play fable 3, crackdown, rainbow 6 when I go silver next month. Their selection pales compared to plus, but at least they're yours for real.

#40 Posted by I_can_haz (6481 posts) -

LOL, lems are so hungry for content in Flopza Microtransactions 5. Even shit content like this gets them excited.

#41 Posted by silversix_ (13635 posts) -

Next month they'll give you a new pair wheels, are you excited? lol lems...

your not getting my point. lets just leave it where it is friend.

i just post it and hope those with an Xbox get the news and take advantage before the thread disappears into oblivion lol. thats the best you can hope for on here. unless its a thread bashing MS/Xbox, Pro-Sony, or straight fanboy flamebait ur thread won't last too long on the front page it seems.

and you're right, the 360 is still a good system. the games with gold promotion gives many users a little less angst about not being able to go next gen yet. goodluck with your studies.

Underwhelming. I own the game but I don't want to drive any of those cars in game or IRL.

#48 Edited by hoosier7 (3691 posts) -

Lol, can't believe a lem would actually post this...

So do these 3 cars make up for the microtransactions, the small car and track roster and the downgrade in graphics?
