Now that Gran Turismo 7 was released, the prices for the in-game currency called credits were announced.
Credit prices range from $2.49 for 100,000 credits to $20 for 2 million credits, and some cars cost well over 2 million credits.
Unlike Gran Turismo Sport, individual cars cannot be purchased at a set price. While you can earn credits in-game, it might be a bit tricky to acquire enough credits to purchase the Porsche 919 Hybrid 16, which will bring you 3 million credits.
That means you would have to buy the 2M credit option twice (thanks, VGC), which would cost you $40 in real money.
The most expensive car in the game right now is the McLaren P1 GTR ’16, which cost $4.99 in GT Sport and earns you 3.6 million credits in GT 7.
As noted by Eurogamer, Sony’s latest State of Play featured the 1929 Mercedes-Benz S Barker Tourer, considered the iconic car in the game and priced at 20 million credits. In real world currency, if you didn’t grind it up and instead bought credits, you’d be spending $200 on a virtual car.
In our Gran Turismo 7 review, we said the latest from Polyphony Digital is so good it could probably turn casual gamers into true petrolheads. And other reviewers seem to like it too, as most reviews have been overwhelmingly positive with only a few outliers.
