It was confirmed a few days ago that microtransactions will be a small part of PES 2015. Konami has spoken out about its inclusion and defending why it has been put there in the first place.

If you want to recruit new players to your myClub roster, you can do this in two ways. You can earn Game Points using in-game currency, or you can do this the easier way by using your own money to get Game Points. Using your own money to get Game Points has been done for gamers who are too lazy it seems.

During an interview with IGN, Konami studio head James Cox defended PES 2015’s inclusion of microtransactions. He said they’re there for gamers who “don’t have a lot of time” and want to “buy a lot of players” they really want. Alternatively, Game Points can still be earned in other features of PES 2015 without using your own money, but it will take longer for you to do so.

PES 2015’s microtransactions may feel like a sore spot for some gamers, but it’s nothing new. Gran Turismo 6 added microtransactions last year for gamers too impatient to earn in-game currency too. Not to mention several EA games have microtransactions too..,
