Rockstar says sorry with $500,000 payoff to gamers

Yes you read it right, Rockstar want to apologise for all the problems surrounding GTA Online since it launched on 1st October (Loosing players, ammo and money are just a few problems that have been reported over the past few days). They’re awarding everyone that has played GTA Online during October with $500,000 – sadly it’s only for use in GTA Online, but it’s a nice little gift for the people who have been frustrated with the games stability over the past week or so.

It does show how sorry Rockstar are though – before in game purchases were disabled, $500,000 of money to use on GTA Online was £6.99 so they’re effectively giving every single player £7.

“For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in these first days of GTA Online, we hope this GTA$ helps to facilitate a fresh start or makes your continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet.” said Rockstar in a statement.

There are some regulations that come with this gift though. To keep the in game economy balanced, the money will be awarded by two payments of $250,000 each. It looks like everyone playing will be going from hood rat to high flying gangster, allowing you to buy a nice house, a few cars and of course a whole artillery to defend yourself in shoot outs with other players.

The two instalments will be announced by Rockstar with the first should come shortly after a planned update by Rockstar next week and the other by the end of the month (if nothing else catastrophic happens to Rockstars Cloud Servers anyway).
