One of the popular ways that developers and publishers are milking gamers of their money is through microtransactions, where gamers can unlock additional content like maps, characters, skins, cosmetics, and etc. by paying for them, and we get it, not everyone is a fan of the model since some feel that if they pay for the game, they should unlock everything.

The good news is that if you’re looking forward to playing the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport, you’ll be pleased to learn that according to the game’s creator Kazunori Yamauchi, it will not feature microtransaction. This was confirmed in an interview with YouTube channel Gema Show Indo (via GT Planet; via VG247).

This is an interesting change of pace because not only does it go against what most AAA developers are doing these days, but also a change of pace from Gran Turismo 6 in which gamers could purchase in-game credits using real-world money. We’re not sure what exactly changed for the developers to go in a different direction, but it’s good news for players anyway.

That being said, Gran Turismo Sport is currently set for a release on the 18th of October 2017 where it will be an exclusive to the Sony PS4 console.
