Grand Theft Auto Online Microtransaction Pricing Leaks
Written Wednesday, September 25, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
UK pricing for Grand Theft Auto Online's reported microtransactions spotted yesterday in code on Rockstar's official site has leaked today, suggesting that the in-game credit cards available for purchase will cost between £1.99 and £13.49, granting in-game cash of between $100,000 and $1,250,000 to play with.
The prices come courtesy of people who've been given early access to the mode, ahead of any kind of official word from Rockstar. Apparently, money has much greater value in GTA Online than in it does in GTA V single-player, with the most expensive property in GTA Online costing $400,000. By comparison, GTA V's golf club costs $150,000,000.
Here are the microtransaction values in full:
- $100,000 Red Shark Cash Card - £1.99
- $200,000 Tiger Shark Cash Card - £3.49
- $500,000 Bull Shark Cash Card - £6.99
- $1,250,000 Great White Shark Cash Card - £13.49
You can only own a single property in GTA Online, and while they cost less - as do vehicles - things like weapon and car mods will cost much more, and in some cases can only be unlocked at certain ranks. This means that the microtransaction packs could offer less of an advantage than you might expect.
No doubt there'll be more details on this, and other Grand Theft Auto Online features ahead of its activation within Grand Theft Auto V on October 1st.
