Grand Theft Auto Online could support microtransactions through 'Cash Cards'

GameZone writes, "Grand Theft Auto Online, the multiplayer component which will be free for all Grand Theft Auto 5 players, could support microtransactions. According to Redditor 1880, the store section of GTA 5 (which currently has nothing available yet) points to a file that allegedly references something called Cash Cards."

Wtf. Does this make it pay to win?

Yes this would, if true. I certainly hope it's not though.

Then again, even if you have a ton of money in-game it won't really have much bearing on winning/losing.

No, it makes it "pay to enjoy a nice house" without having to earn it.

I will be earning my money the hard way....the fun way.

Rockstar are becoming greedy and that is bad.

Not really - it's business, they've got to make money out of it - they'll probably end up making it a huge free to play universe where earning money in-game is vital to progression, but allow some people to buy credits so they can speed up and unlock/buy things quicker if they want to.

I say good stuff Rockstar, good business model and keep pumping out awesome content!

they go where the industry is going and we are to blame.
I guess if the industry go in this way its because there is a lot of people who buy micro transaction stuff.

Sucks to see that gta online will now be pay to win money is going to run the online and this puts the pin on it claiming the people who buy the cards will have the better stuff and own the online experience.

I hope GTAO is sold separately I would love to pay for just the online portion of the game. It looks like it they keep on saying it is free for ppl who paid for GTAV already so I hope if you did not buy GTAV then you can pay like half and just get the online part lol. I won’t even buy this game until online comes out.
OT: I see nothing wrong with this if done right if you don't want to wait and build up money slow then why not spend real money to get a lot of GTA money real quick that way you can go buy guns and houses because some people don't want to wait and stack money to go buy a house.

They might have microtrans but that would take the whole fun away of you and your friends going and robbing people for their money lol

If micro transactions make multiplayer pay to win I will be very disappointed. I would just stick with free roam with friends.
