Will Grand Theft Auto V Online Be Filled With Micro Transactions


It seems a rather bored gamer has come across some details that pertain to Grand Theft Auto V Online (available October 1st). Currently when you open the store section in the pause menu it says there’s nothing available, but it seems to be calling a single XML, the comments in the long description portion of the file read,

Cash is king in this town. Solve your money problems and help get what you want across Los Santos and Blaine County with the purchase of cash packs for Grand Theft Auto Online. All purchased cash is automatically deposited into your character’s bank account. Spend wisely, cash therapy is fleeting.

Within the document there’s four different “cash cards” available that have in-game currency amounts ranging from $100,000 to $1,250,000 that we’re assuming you’ll be able to micro transact. There’s also mention of the pre-order DLC items like the atomic blimp and another long description of the collector’s edition items,

The Collector’s Edition Pack provides additional content for Grand Theft Auto V including Stunt Plane Trials, a special ability boost, additional weapons, garage property with unique vehicles, bonus outfits and tattoos, special deals from shopkeepers, access to the Atomic Blimp aircraft and custom characters for Grand Theft Auto Online. Grand Theft Auto Online specific content will become available at the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online.

If the “cash cards” are purchased with real world currency, GTA V would join a long list of games that have proprietary currency able to be bought with real money from your wallet.
