Free Money in GTA Online

Don’t say Rockstar never gave you anything…aside from the greatest game of the year and countless hours of fun and excitement. Due to the frustration and headache that was GTA Online in the first week or so, Rockstar has decided to give us more than just an apology for enduring such hardships. They announced on their Newswire blog on Friday that $500,000 of in game money would be deposited into players GTA Online bank accounts as part of a special stimulus package.

The money could be deposited as early as this week and will go to any player that purchased GTA 5 and has attempted to play GTA Online within the month of October. GTA Online was launched at the beginning of the month and was plagued with tons of problems and even caused some gamers to lose their single player progress.

Quote from Rockstar Newswire;
“In order to keep the current worldwide in-game economy balanced, we will be providing this GTA$ to players via two deposits of $250,000. We will announce specific dates as soon as possible, but are currently hoping to be able to make the first deposit by the end of next week (after we’ve confirmed that issues causing game progress loss have been fixed) with the second installment to happen by the end of the month.”

Now that everyone playing GTA online will be receiving half a million dollars of in game money, I’m curious to see how this will effect the in game economy. Everyone will now be able to afford to buy themselves a decent place to live, a nice new car, and arm themselves to the teeth. Players have mixed reactions to this announcement but I think it’s a pretty great gesture on the part of Rockstar.
