Rockstar starts paying GTA Online cash

Gta stimulus

Ah, nothing like throwing money at a problem to make it go away. We told you about the GTA V Online troubled launch and resulting hush money being delayed. Well, now Rockstar is ready to start paying out.

Rockstar has started depositing GTA$500 000 into each in-game bank account. Anyone who was playing GTA Online in October 2013 will receive the stimulus. However, much like real life bank transfers, Rockstar expects that it can take two days for the funds to actually hit your account. They go on to thank you for your patience:

Thanks go out to everyone for their continued patience and understanding while we worked through these issues, and we can’t wait to bring more into the world of GTA Online.

Well done, guys – I’m sure those still playing GTA Online will appreciate the extra funds. Actually, who is still playing? Has the hype finally blown over, or are people still playing tip their fingers bleed?

          Saints Row is crazy enough to have it in the game.

          Think we need to contact these devs…

            Hopefully that dream will come true. GTAV is actually crazy in it’s own right, but an awesome game.

            Compared to Sleeping Dogs it looks like a cartoon but the ridiculousness of it makes for some fun, and Sleeping Dogs doesn’t have aircraft.

            I bought SR3 cause of soo many people saying it is a “great” game… Boy were they wrong… Game is too corny and feels cheap to be honest.. I like the realism in games. Sure had it’s fun moments but alot of the activities were so lame and got old fast.

          • John's (JJ's) ????

            November 7, 2013 at 12:28

            It does feel cheap, I must agree. But I paid $5 for Saints Row 2, 3, Metro 2033, Risen 1&2, Dead Island GOTY and Sacred 1&2 all together. So for me it was cheap. Humble Bundle & Steam FTW.

    Shweet! Yup, definitely still playing. Honestly, I love the game – SP and Online. Finished SP, but now trying to do all the collection missions to 100% it (it’s a game that deserves to be 100%). And Online… Always great hanging out wit my crew – SOMA forever! πŸ™‚

    Almost had enough cash stashed for that apartment in-game I’ve been eyeing (has an 8 car garage which I can use to finally get all those motors I’ve been salivating over). This will give me the rest of the funds needed! Will check my account tonight… **fingers crossed**
