"Micro Transactions" a term that sets off alarm bells for many players. Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 will implement this by allowing you to purchase new players with real money. The head of Konami's newly opened European studio, James Cox, has talked a little with IGN on this.
Most players will use agents to recruit players to their collection in the new MyClub mode. Here the so-called "game points" are used for purchases and that currency is earned in-game. Micro-transactions are simply a way for players with "less time and more money" to speed up the process a bit.
"If you don't have a lot of time, then with microtransactions you can go buy a lot of players that you want. But you also can earn Game Points in the mode and other parts of PES as well. We're trying to link things together so you can progress and build your team [normally]. The idea is that we're trying to just give the players the choice of what they want to do. Some people have more time, some people have more money. Some people have a bit of each! Either way, you'll have the choice."
Cox is careful to point out that it's not about blind, random purchases without actually going to get what you pay for in Pro Evolution Soccer 2015.
"The general principle is that you will be able to buy the players you want. The exact final mechanic is all still being tuned, but yes - if you want to buy Ronaldo, one way or another, you will be able to do that. And you will be happy with what you spend your money on."
