    old news my friend.

    According to IGN, the game might be dirty cheap to begin with

    "Bummed about Sony's micro transaction plans for Gran Turismo HD? Well this news might soften the blow just a bit. Japan's Impress Watch games site reports that, in comments made to the Japanese press, series producer Kazunori Yamauchi revealed that Sony plans to make GT HD available for the cost of the game disk and instruction manual. This suggests a retail price point of just a few dollars for the first PS3 Gran Turismo game."

    so while paying for it still sucks, at the very least you won't be paying full retail for it then expected to drop more cash on cars/tracks. And they are adding car damage via online patch in 07 :cool:

    I still think this is a bad idea on Sony's part. Maybe it's a good idea with microtransactions, but a bad idea in that they are expensive. To get the whole game, you will have to pay some pretty big cash. I'm glad I never got into Gran Turismo.

    maybe if they had made it like $1 for 10 cars and a track or something, or $1 for 5 tracks or whatever it would have been better. But charging per car/track is a rip

    That's such a huge rip-off. I'd rather spend $845 to put a Wii on each floor of my house. :)
