Will GTA V Online Contain Microtransactions? XML File Suggests So

GTA V Online may feature microsotransactions, according to details found in an XML file within the game.
Discovered by Reddit user 1880, the file lists a number of cash packs that can be bought with real money, along with a short description.
"Cash is king in this town,” it says. “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."
Listed within the file are $100,000, $200,000, $500,000 and $1,250,000 cash cards.
Now, it should be noted that the discovery of the file does not necessarily mean that GTA V Online will contain microtransactions. It could be a leftover from an abandoned idea. However, it does seem likely that purchasable items will feature in the game.
Rockstar has yet to publicly comment on the matter.
