MORE GTA Online Details!

Some interesting things they bring up.... 1) They've basically confirmed micro-transactions and will be available IMMEDIATELY when the Online launches in a couple of days. 2) It seems like Heists are going to be released in an Update, and NOT available immediately from the get-go. Now personally, I don't think Micro-transactions are going to break this game. A lot of people do but, to me at least, all the fun and activities in this game are built around making money. Heists on the other hand... I'm not sure if I like them releasing something, they've been toting as one of the big features of the multiplayer, sometime later without even a release date. I'm still super-stoked for the Online, and I trust Rockstar and I have a gut feeling they're gonna pull off something real special with this. So Flood, how do you guys feel about this new information about GTA Online?

  • Rockstar: [quote]The game and its economy have been designed and balanced for the vast majority of players who will not buy extra cash. There is no in-game paywall and nothing that should disrupt the balance of the game. You don’t have to spend real money to attain the cars, guns, clothes, flash and style of a high-roller in Los Santos, but can if you wish to get them a little quicker.” Rockstar added that “the economy is balanced differently from the single player economy, and cash earned in one cannot be taken over to the other. Most players will earn cash much faster Online than in Story Mode.”[/quote] So there will be no glass ceiling, its designed with the "free" player in mind, money is even easier to earn than in single player. If they deliver on these 3 points there is no reason for anyone to be bitching and moaning.

  • Does microtransactions apply to PS3 or just Xbox? I don't even know what that is....

  • So, not only did Rockstar delay releasing their multiplayer mode, they are now making it pay to win. Congratulations, you failed at MP.

  • Micro-transactions = Real money - in-game money Someone robs your house,you wasted your own money. I never thought I'd say this,but this a HUGE fail on Rockstar

      Micro-transactions Meh, it's expected nowadays, honestly Second, WHY THE F*CK WOULD YOU ADVERTISE SOMETHING AND THEN SAY, "OH, IT'LL COME OUT, [i]IN ONE MORE FATASS UPDATE[/i]" Don't get me wrong, just messing around with friends online will be fun, but aren't heists basically going to be our only source of income? Meaning we won't be able to personalize ourselves until later? Come the hell on Edit: Wow nevermind, there's actually [i]more[/i] content than I thought even without the heists We'll be aight

    • Microtransactions are an interesting thought. If they were wise, they'd offer money by the dollar, as just about everybody I know has a few extra bucks on their account.

    • I don't care all I want is the damn alien/zombie invasion DLC or playing as Transformers. All else is meaningless.

        • Bit of a disappointment that heists won't be available straight away.

        • There's an article that IGN put out a bit ago on the micro transactions (can't be bothered to look for it atm). In it a rockstar rep said that most players will make money faster in online than in single player. If anything the people who pay will just be ripping themselves off.

        • I don't wanna wait ;n; but I really hope they don't make online a pay to win game. Like, you can buy 100 mil and go on a buying spree and you're able to kill everyone and everything in your path. That would really suck. Personally I can't wait to be able to customize cars online and drive around in Lambos putting holes into anything that moves. Ooh and Fighter Jet dog fights.
