Rockstar Giving Away Virtual Stimulus Money to Grand Theft Auto Online Players

October 11, 2013 - James Fudge

Rockstar Games will give away in-game currency to those affected by technical difficulties in Grand Theft Auto Online, the online multiplayer component of Grand Theft Auto V. The company said this morning that anyone who played the game when it first launched (a period they define as the entire month of October) will receive $500,000, deposited in their in-game bank accounts. Rockstar is calling the funds "stimulus money." How very political of them. The money will be doled out to players' bank accounts in two deposits.

"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."

"For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in these first days of GTA Online, we hope this GTA$ helps to facilitate a fresh start or makes your continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet."

Consumer responsibility is just as important as Corporate responsibility. So, be responsible consumers.

Thank you Rockstar.

 

I think I'll be patient and use both deposits on a sweet condo......... along with how many other people will be doing that.
