Already geeeez.....
Lukas_Japonicus  +   317d ago
They are just guns, its not as if they have cut missions out of the game to sell as DLC.
bsquwhere  +   317d ago
Not that we know of. Oh well they still offer more than any other game out there.
Muffins1223  +   317d ago
Still should of not done that,i bet if this was not GTA 5 all of us would be calling them greedy and only care about money BUT sense this gta 5,will be one of the greatest games of all time,ill let it slide...
Lukas_Japonicus  +   317d ago
@ Muffins1223

I understand what you are saying and i hate this micro transaction crap but R* aren't EA or any other company that releases re hash games every year. They worked on GTA5 since GTA4, if they were in it just for the money they wouldn't put so many years of hard work into each game.

It sucks yeah, but no need to start a lynch mob because a few weapons are being sold as DLC by a company that has NEVER done this before.

I know Lukas thats what i said this sucks but its a great game,but if EA did something like this even in a great game like GTA 5 they would still get the hate unlike this game dose not get. We hate Capcom for doing the same thing but if rockstar dose it we let them get away with it and look the other way.

@ Muffins1223 Mmm maybe or it could be that this is the first GTA in 5 years and they spent a LOT of money on it and have given you plenty of content for the 60$. It's not like this is another shitty COD or BF yearly release with the guns being pieced out.
FamilyGuy  +   317d ago
It sucks to see them going down that road but it's hard to even care after knowing how much content is in the game. It's already proven itself to be more worth my $60 than a lot of other titles. I don't buy DLC anyway, especially the small stuff like guns.

GTA Online should be interesting though.
Crazay  +   316d ago
those pegs get filled up with other weapons after you unlock them.
Crazay  +   316d ago
most if not all of those unlock as you progress through the title. The ability to pay for them earlier is likely the reasoning for that.
Yi-Long  +   316d ago
Oh well, this will just make my decision to wait for a next-gen version a bit more easy to make.

Sad days, when even Rockstar is stooping this low to nickel-and-dime it's customers.

In the whole DLC-debate, GTA4's DLC was always a prime example of Rockstar 'doing DLC right!'.

Anyway, time to get back to my huge backlog.

Edit: Kinda pathetic to still see gamers 'defend' this kinda nickel-and-diming by stating: 'Oh, yeah, it's just some guns, items, clothes, whatever...'.

Yes it IS just some guns, items and clothes,, and it's content that could and thus should have just been included in the game you bought for 50-60 bucks, instead of having to be purchased seperately 3 seconds afterwards!

Oh, and pre-order exclusive DLC content is just as annoying as the usual DLC-milking. You pre-order a game for full price from store A, and get 'exclusive' item 1 and 2, but Store B and Store C and Store D ALSO have some EXCLUSIVE pre-order content, so even when you're pre-ordering the game and buy it on day 1, you'll be getting an INCOMPLETE game.

You'll have to purchase DLC to get the complete experience. Which is ridiculous.

remember playing and a message pop up saying if you link social club to the game you could unlock new guns and stuff
Ritsujun  +   316d ago
LOL @ GTA fansissies.
isa_scout  +   317d ago
They're only the guns and items that come special from different retailers with pre-orders. I actually think it's cool that they are making these items available in the game. As I pre-ordered from Gamestop(Atomic Blimp) I'm excited to know I can get my hands on the other extra content as well.
FamilyGuy  +   317d ago
Maybe it's not so bad, one of the comments on the article said it's actually just the pre-order bonuses that the've made available for purchase to those that missed the opportunity.

"it isnt DLC, people are using this to fire their rage but they arent using any logic. They are the preorder bonus items that are being offered for people that didnt preorder or didnt buy the deluxe/collectors edition. also for people that buy it used later on.

if they werent offering this then everyone would be flipped in the other direciton saying that they dont have a way to get the preorder items and would STILL be mad."
showtimefolks  +   316d ago
we are about to go to next gen, please stop complaining about DLC. its here to stay whether we like it or not
Vip3r  +   317d ago
Not buying guns as DLC.
ZodTheRipper  +   317d ago
I agreed with you ...but if you think about it - does any of us feel bad about giving Rockstar (!) a couple of cents? I'm rather supporting Rockstar than other developers since they make the games that are really worth it's money. Only because Rockstar is a big company now I don't mind supporting it just as I like supporting Indie projects.
Vip3r  +   317d ago
True. But MS will no doubt get commission on it. That's what I don't like about it. Should do it via social club or something.
TheFamous1  +   316d ago
Now you're just trying to convince yourself. I have no problem paying more money for DLC, especially to a studio like Rockstar - but regardless of the fact that it is Rockstar, this DLC is in bad taste. This is something we would expect from EA with Dead Space or something similar, not Rockstar. I would have no problem paying for DLC that added worthwhile content - and $5 guns are not that.

What ever happened to you know...fucking cheat codes?
blennerville  +   317d ago
Ya ??? - they were a given back in the PS2 days.
i almost still remember it - L1,R1,O,O....

did GTA4 have weapon cheats ??
i know i never used them, and it sure was a pain having go to amunation.
ThichQuangDuck  +   317d ago
Flying Cars how I miss you. I heard on the streams some one did use a cheat code,but if this is true than it appears rockstar are having people pay for what can be gotten through cheating. Only if you cheat you cannot get achievements which makes sense,but if you buy all the guns you can get all the achievements non nonsensical. If people want to buy guns so be it,but when games cost more the next generation and "extra" stuff cost more they will know why.
moparful99  +   316d ago
They still exist.. in GTAIV you used a cell phone to input phone numbers that unlocked the cheats.. im assuming GTAV will be the same..
Duddy101  +   317d ago
Why pay for these? Missions yeah but wepons?
HolyDuck  +   317d ago
Has the update to use local currency gone world wide yet? If so this is fake.

Can't see Rockstar charging 400 MS points for a rubber bullet gun.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   317d ago
Yeah it has. 400 MS points does seem a little steep just for one gun.....

Unless its MS calling the shots, in which case its completely believable.

Isn't there a season pass coming for this?
bub16  +   317d ago
lets get the game first guys lol
Megaton  +   317d ago
Is that $5 for one gun? There's about to be a new king of rip-off cut content DLC if that's the case.
DoctorJones  +   317d ago
You'd have to be a bit dense to think they would do that though.
Jovanian  +   317d ago
WOW rockstar you are losing points fast

Microtransactions for GUNS is unacceptable, aren't they freaking raking in the cash already from the fact that the game is, idunno, GTA 5?

Greedy bastards
Lukas_Japonicus  +   317d ago
Lol, "losing points fast". Are you serious? They couldn't be gaining "points" faster if they tried, have you seen the hype for this game? The entire industry halts when a GTA is announced.

Am i a fanboy? Yes. :)
TheFamous1  +   316d ago
I'm hyped to shit about GTA V - but if this is actual DLC and they actually want me to pay $5 for a gun? Fuck off Rockstar.
DeletedAcc  +   317d ago
Calm down and get a life, you dont have to buy
orakle44  +   317d ago
this is probably fake, microsoft does not use microsoft points anymore, this should be a hint as to it's not real.
wannabe gamer  +   317d ago
Hold on guys these could be the weapons from the special edition / deluxe/ collectors /whatever its called. so this is meant for the people that buy the game used or have the standard edition to have the option to get those extra guns.
which if true seems perfectly fine.

These are the Special Edition weapons.
Dropdeadll  +   317d ago
Looks like xbox gets DLC first again :/
JonnyBigBoss  +   317d ago
Special Edition weapons. Not DLC.

Move along, folks.
GraveLord  +   317d ago
PS3 timed-exclusive!
AllroundGamer  +   317d ago
never paid for DLC and never will.
NatureOfLogic  +   317d ago
Lol at everyone defending this. It doesn't matter who rapes you, It's still rape. I'm not buying this game, so I won't complain. Btw, bring back cheat codes.

I can't wait this GTA V and ALL DLC my faviote, I interest buy this DLC!!! I did not buy DLC since 2 year XD
TheKingWilliamV  +   316d ago
As with everything else in life you have the option to purchase it or not.
nooneknows  +   316d ago
Ugh, come on!

Seriously, already, not only that but this basically confirms Micro-transactions.

Sadly, everyone likes to ride Rockstar 24/7 nowadays, so no one will complain....
kingPoS  +   316d ago
I kinda half expected this.

If they're going to launch GTA online, what's the quickest way for them to recoup from the obvious operating costs?
#22.1 (Edited 316d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(1) | Report | Reply
nooneknows  +   316d ago
Um, this is a $60 video game. If I want all content that I might be spending up to $100 to get the full experience. Not right.
AzaziL  +   316d ago
I used to hate DLC like everyone else but then you have to realize something. Games today cost nearly the same as they did twenty years ago, so if you do the math, the cost of a game today adjusted for inflation comes out to around $36 in 1993.

Considering that games also cost significantly more to produce than they did twenty years ago, DLC is a practical way of making up for the lost revenue by not raising prices with the rate of inflation. Had they just included everything and raised prices instead, we'd be paying a little over $95 for a game that would've cost $60 twenty years ago.
