Rockstar To Give Half A Million (Virtual) Bucks To GTAV Gamers

Grand Theft Auto V is without a doubt one of the most popular games of all time. It’s shattered numerous sales records since its debut a month ago and is making Rockstar quite a bit of money. Unfortunately the release of the multiplayer component to GTAV, known as Grand Theft Auto Online, has left a lot to be desired.

The people playing it are having fun, sure, but there’s been a myriad of problems since day one. From issues logging in those first few days, to cars and even players disappearing, the fans haven’t been exactly thrilled at how the game hasn’t been at its best. Rockstar announced last week, however, that to make it up to all the players of GTA Online they will be depositing $500,000 into each gamer’s in-game account, with the first deposit of $250,000 happening sometime this week. That’s not a bad deal, if I do say so myself!

You do have to qualify for the half a million bucks first though, but it shouldn’t be anything to stress about. First, you have to have played the Online multiplayer portion sometime during this month, October 2013, in order to qualify for the deposit. You’ll also have to install the 1.04 title update that will fix the problems with vehicle purchase loss and will also let Rockstar add the money to the account. Annnndddddd that’s it. Rockstar will automatically add the money to the accounts when it’s time and will announce the deposits through the Rockstar Newswire.
