Car Tokens...Good or Bad?

From Turn 10

Car Tokens: Credits will be readily available in Forza 4, but for players who don't want to wait and save up for the elite Forza 4 cars, we're introducing car tokens. While you can always buy cars with the credits you earn in the game, car tokens in Forza Motorsport 4 are a brand-new way to access the cars that matter most to you. Players will be able to purchase car tokens via the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, either individually (80 MS Points, $1), in six-token packs (400 MS Points, $5) or in 13-token packs (800 MS Points, $10). The in-game credit value of a car will determine its token price-the more expensive a car is in the game, the more car tokens it will cost. The most expensive cars in Forza 4 will cost three tokens; the majority of cars will cost either one or two car tokens.



Personally I don't see a problem with it. There was at least 1 car in FM3 (Shelby Daytona Coupe) that I would have glady spent real money to have in my garage. In fact depending on how fast the career progression is, I may buy the 13 pack in the first few days just to get my hands on some of my favorites. What do you guys think?

I'll gladly spend the odd amounts of MS Points I have left after other purchases, such as buying 800 points for something that costs 560 points, then having the odd 140 left!

I don't mind. People who are good and painting and tuning have no trouble affording cars, so why does it matter if I spend $3 to get my Cobra Daytona instead of grinding for days on end.

Lame.

People with a lot of disposable income will game the game with that. On top of it being pathetic. What happened to making us earn it T10? They sure didn't give a damn in Forza 3.

They better make the cars purchased with tokens, locked to whoever bought them.

@ MertensCW - You don't think grinding for the past two years was enough?

I'm indifferent so far. For one thing, monetary rewards have been improved. By the end of FM3's career mode, you should have around 20-30 million credits depending on how you set your difficulty.

Since you can now earn up to 165% credits, that's going to help immensely. It's the 20 million credit cars and the duplicate R1, R2, R3 cars that boost the garage value.

I'm not going to focus on collecting every car this time around. It's something that I will eventually get to.

Also, we'll see what happens when the inevitable money glitch is found or the modders crack the game. Bannomania is my guess.

I rather spend money on DLC instead of stuff that came on the disc. My career winnings in FM3 was alil over 30 mil and have 200 mil in my account. My favorites are JDM cars and they dont cost very much. I have no interest in collecting American or European cars. Plus money will be easier to make and parts are free with level 5 affinity. I only buy free paints.

I personally think all this DLC nonsense is becoming a bit of a piss take at times but I always have the option of not buying it. I really don't see myself spending money on something that can be bought with in game credits but it doesn't bother me if someone chooses to do so.

800-560=140 now? I need to back to school!

As far as the tokens are concerned... whatever people want to spend their money on is their business. I doubt I'll use that "feature."
