Rockstar have announced that two blocks of $250k of cash would be put into users virtual accounts as compensation for GTA Online’s teething problems. The compensation, known as the ‘Stimulus Package’, should start appearing as soon as next week.
There have been huge volumes of problems with GTA Online since its launch on October 1st with many gamers losing Money, Cars, Properties and above all progress.
My personal experience is all of the above mentioned. I lost my car, which I wasn’t too bothered about, then mission cash, then my 2 garages, and then my level 20 progress as well as remaining stuck in the tutorial race, where you race Lemar.
But Rockstar is still patching (with its 4th announced) and continually updating its users with blog posts which is more than what can be said about other games companies, something which we can all be happy about. And by taking the consumers’ feedback it can be the best online experience in years for games, with the addition of more missions, races and deathmatches. With the heists yet to even be added.
In order to keep the current worldwide in-game economy balanced, Rockstar will be providing this GTA $ to players via two deposits of $250,000. They will announce the specific dates as soon as possible, but are currently hoping to be able to make the first deposit by the end of next week (after confirming that issues causing game progress loss have been fixed by a new game patch for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360) with the second installment to happen by the end of the month. For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in these first days of GTA Online, The GTA$ will help to facilitate a fresh start and make continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet.
There are a few conditions you need to meet to be granted your $500k cash.
You must play or have played Grand Theft Auto Online at any time during the month of October 2013 in order to qualify for the GTA $500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.
Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA $ stimulus cash to players.
Rockstar will announce on NewsWire when the deposits have been made.
What will you be spending your cash on? Do you think that $500k is enough compensation for the problems? Leave a Comment below!
Personally I’ll be buying everything that I possibly can, starting with my 2 garages, my kitted out car and my apartment.
