I'll still maintain, that Sony is doing MTX's wrong in regards to GT7.Precisely, they make far more from the whales than they do anyone else, and they target the games economy and MTX prices accordingly to achieve maximum effectiveness.
There are studies around all of this, the pricing structure and in game economy is not an accident no matter how many people insist MTX'shave nothing to do with it, for reasons such as they never bought any. Neither have I, but they most certainly have driven the in game economy of GT7.
Being that this game was advertised as car-collecting being front and center, I still think they would make much more money if they had an MTX pay schedule similar to what it was in GTS. I'm not one to grind for any cars, but I'm not above paying for what I want if the price is right, either. At $20usd for 2 million credits, the price isn't right. If they made a slide-scale of $3-10 per LCD car, I'd probably be in. So would many others I reckon. For those of us who were kids when the first Gran Turismo came out, we're grownups now. We have disposable income for things we're passionate about. You could probably say the same for those who came into the series from GT1-4. For those Americans that might read this, PD really should have taken the "Costco" or "99 cents store" approach with MTX's.
Maybe I'm wrong tho 🤷🏽♂️
