Turn 10 responds to Forza Motorsport 5 economy feedback
by Brett Zeidler

If you've been playing Forza Motorsport 5, you're probably very familiar with the game's awful microtransactions. If not, basically the game uses tokens you buy in-game that can be used to purchase cars if you don't have enough credits. The problem is it's severely broken and takes advantage of consumers, specifically with the value of said tokens being misleading.

Players are not happy, and Turn 10 responded to both their feedback and in-game data with programs to be implemented this week as a means of tiding players over for the supposed permanent changes to come to the Forza 5 economy.

But it isn't over yet. With E3 on the horizon and several months left before the release of the hardware, what can Microsoft do to turn the tide of public opinion?

Should we expect games to fully function at launch? photo
Should we expect games to fully function at launch?
by Conrad Zimmerman

It seems we can barely go a month without a game release suffering some manner of issue in its launch week that overshadows the game itself. With the complexity of modern games, the wide range of variables at work and the challenges inherent in releasing interactive products on a global scale, it should be no surprise that such issues are possible, but should consumers be willing to accept them?
