Rockstar Games know they messed up and I’m sure they feel shame and they know they’ve pissed off a lot of people with the faulty launch of GTA Online, but they’re going to attempt to make it right by giving everyone who plays GTA Online $500,000 GTA$ (GTA Online’s in-game cash). However to maintain the economy of GTA Online, Rockstar will be giving the cash out in two $250,000 deposits. The first deposit should come by the end of next week and the second by the end of the month. Below is how you can cash in on your $500k.
- You must play or have played Grand Theft Auto Online at any time during the month of October 2013 in order to qualify for the GTA$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.
- Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.
- We will announce at the Rockstar Newswire when each deposit is made.
- Each of the two GTA$250,000 deposits will be made by Rockstar and should automatically appear in the in-game GTA Online bank accounts of eligible players. Beyond downloading the forthcoming title update mentioned above, there should not be any additional special action required by eligible players to redeem.
Keep in mind $500,000 GTA$ is about equivalent to $10 USD. So Rockstar isn’t playing around here, $10 to every player, that’s a lot of real money. Anyhow it’s nice to see them attempting to make it right and between me and them, I say we are good (assuming the deposit goes ok.)
