Micro-transactions are generally an unwelcome sight, giving users the impression that developers are out only to make money (they are a business, right?).

Forza Motorsport 6 was yet to see the return of micro-transactions until now – the latest update bringing them back to the series. As of this update, one Token is equal to 500 in-game credits, with Tokens available to be purchased as follows:
- 325 Tokens for $2.99
- 1,250 Tokens for $9.99
- 2,700 Tokens for $19.99
- 8,000 Tokens for $49.99
- 20,000 Tokens for $99.99
Forza Motorsport 6 boasts several 2 million dollar machines straight out of the box, including the Lotus E23 Hybrid Formula One – to get this will be require 4,000 Tokens, or around $25.00.
Tokens can be set to not appear in the game via the HUD options menu.
