Gran Turismo 7 bewilders players with its high-quality and hyper-realism graphics which, during Sony’s State of Play event that took place in February, developers exhibited the game’s track and weather conditions. However, there’s a price to pay.
Gran Turismo 7 New Updates & Additions
This realism has its own cons, and while players enjoy the stunning visuals of the game, it also increased the prices of cars. Polyphony Digital, Gran Turismo 7’s developer, released the 1.5 update last week. Along with this version comes three new models: Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo, Toyota GR010 Hybrid 21, and Roadster Shop Rampage.
The update also included three new Car Café Menu Books and new events. These changes caused the price hike for high-end cars to keep up with the real-world market. In total, twenty-seven Gran Turismo 7 cars increased their prices.
Catching Up With Market Value
Changes in the prices affected some cars more than the others. One of which is the Ferrari F40, doubling its charge from 1.35 million to 2.6 million. The Lamborghini Miura P400 Bertone Prototype also skyrocketed to 3.4 million (previously 2.5 million), and the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL W194 from 11 million to 13 million real quick.
Sony released Gran Turismo 7 on the 4th of March and consequently announced that they will be partnering with car insurance company Hagerty. It focuses on rare cars and game price changes to match real-world values in the market. However, this price hike may continue to rise due to the increase in the appraisal value of collectible cars.
Unfortunately, players are still unable to sell their cars yet, so this update only benefits the developers. Fans took to Twitter their sentiments regarding these changes.
Gran Turismo 7 has also previously made in-game changes that stirred controversy among the community. Polyphony Digital decreased the game awards credits of players for every race completed. Because of this, fans have been wary of the developers’ tactics.
