I think rockstar should stick to single player games from now on. With 2 coop friends. Online should be f2p too. Intact rockstar are getting greedy now.

CrossingEden1643d ago

Wait wait wait? SO Rockstar made over60+hrs of content in a campaign, and also included a full free online multiplayer component with it's own story and FREE dlc, and you have the audacity to call them greedy?!

MestreRothN4G1643d ago

GTA Online is completely designed towards cash microtransactions. That's why they try so hard to convince idiots that it is a 'completely different game', to avoid the s***storm coming from GTA 5's 'F2P' online component being centered on grinding and heavy progression walls.

"and you have the audacity to call them greedy?!"

Someone haven't visited Rockstar support page yet...

BigShotSmoov0071643d ago

You can't please everyone I guess.

Hydrolex1643d ago

Why is there no bubble negative vote for idioticy?

Hitman07691643d ago

I'm with @CrossingEden on this one. People are on one hating on GTA for no apparent reason. Expectations are out of the box unrealistic no wonder people still get disappointed by every game that drops...

PsylentKiller1643d ago

I'm hoping he meant 'greedy' in the sense of trying to do too much. Not in the financial sense of the word. Maybe he was looking at it like they seemed like they may have stretched themselves a little too thin. Put the focus on the single player game and maybe some coop campaign.
Personally, I love GTA Online. I was just guessing as to what THC CELL was thinking.

RyuX191642d ago

The multiplayer is not free. You can only get GTA Online if you buy GTA5. You could only say it's free if the online was a separate component that everyone could get, but it's not. Is the online for Call of Duty free? Is the online in Halo free?

BlackTar1871642d ago (Edited 1642d ago )

If GTA is designed for Micro Transactions i must be doing something wrong. I have no reason to buy any cash. I have more then enough money right now +250k they are giving i have 0 reason to use real money. I don't even play that much. I think the designed for Micro Transaction is nonsense. You do not need to ever bu money for this game with all the stuff they have available to you.

Revolver_X_1642d ago


You have no idea what your talking about. I have 400k, but I wont sit here and say that GTAO isnt shaping into a microT build. They patched it to where you cant replay missions from the menu. Why even keep the replay button there if it cant be used? Then that wasnt enough. When players proved to be headstrong enough to call in every job, R* cuts MOST of the missions payout by 50%. Now some jobs actually leave you in the negative after buying armor and ammo. Jobs like Base Invader arent even worth the difficulty now. All in all GTAO is an online component thats filled with bugs and repetitive lackluster missions. R*'s first order of business should have been to fix those issues. They are trying to turn GTAO into a MMO, and most players I see on GFaqs and R* forums are not liking its direction.

@ MestreRothN4G

Designed for microtransactions? I made over a million dollars in a few days from various jobs, activities and robberies, basically just playing the game. I didn't have to buy a damn cent. What the hell are you talking about?

BlackTar1871642d ago (Edited 1642d ago )

Revolver. I don't know what im talking about?

I am level 36 i have a supped up Vette Suped up Porchase, Suped up Akuma and a suped up elergy.

I won all the guns i can full ammo i own a nice apartment and i have about 250k in bank account.

When i get the 250k ill either be saving it for the 795k car or grabbing a coil. I have nothing i need exatcly at this point in the game that is to expensive for me by the time i get up into the 50's and ill have enough with that 250k in pocket and 250k in stimulus to buy that 795k car before i hit 40 and im 36 right now.

I have done no boosting or whatever and i suck at races so i lose ALLLL THE TIME (Lol)

I think you need to better apply your time to the grind.

Base Invader is a 25k payout for the first time and 12500 every other time.

They patched the replay so people weren't taking advantage of the easy mission for high payouts. Those people would replay Base invaders 100x 25k pay out each time and be multi millionaires.

The top rank is at least 120 so in that time i will almost 100% with confidence say i will own every single thing i could ever want plus be sitting on huge amounts of money by then with nothing to buy.

Well if you ever played the still very popular SA-MP on PC you would know the multiplayer has tons of potential in a GTA game.

The only thing i don't like what R* has done is micro transactions, R* should know how to make a multiplayer at least as fun as SA-MP by now, especially since IV's kind of sucked. Surprising a mod team can do better than the developers of the game themselves.

maximus19851643d ago

micro transactions are optional you do know this right? i havent used it yet i managed to buy the most expensive apartment and some good vehicles. oh and not to mention the FREE 500,000 that were getting....but sure complain away

SuperBlur1642d ago

i partly agree with you
but you see, R*Games had to work something out with the crappy old hardware at their disposal. I do think however with next gen hardware they'll be able to pull something as good as sa-mp.

ThatOneGuyThere1642d ago (Edited 1642d ago )

The online is stupid. The economy is so poorly designed unless you enjoy grinding really lame missions endlessly. Theres nothing good about GTA:O that I can think of. Trading in my copy of this POS today so some other poor bastard can deal with this POS. Its all based around making people buy money.

DAS6921643d ago

"Intact Rockstar are getting greedy now." ^^^ LOL! This guy...

GadgetGooch1643d ago

You are simply a douche my good sir...

ThatOneGuyThere1642d ago

Im trading in my copy of Grand Theft Facebookgame today. Seriously, the online portion is a complete waste of time. So stupid. 24k FOR A PAINT JOB ON YOUR CAR? Wut. Sorry, you have to buy a sports car, its too hot! WHAT. no no no. never again. This game is a joke.

Snookies121643d ago

I hate when things say "discussed" when the developer only really just says "We can't say anything right now". :\

GarrusVakarian1643d ago

Yeah, me too. I got my hopes up when i saw the word "heists".

KonsoruMasuta1643d ago

How else will they get hits? They know nobody will click the article if the title read "Rockstar states that they can't say anything about upcoming updates".

So they have to create a misleading title.

That's all these journalist care about, hits.

Campy da Camper1643d ago

Journalist is a pretty strong word for online blogs. BBC reporters, in Somalia, getting shelled as they try and bring you the story from the front line are journalists.

FriedGoat1642d ago

I didn't realise it was like Mario Kart over in Somalia. They should give BBC reporters Star power to avoid those shells.

franko1643d ago

So basicaly, we can kiss heists goodbye.

KonsoruMasuta1643d ago

Where did you get that from?

-EvoAnubis-1643d ago

No idea how you got that from the comments Rockstar made. Heists are going to be a major part of the online experience.

ThatOneGuyThere1642d ago

This is why I am selling my copy. "Heists are going to be a major part of the online experience." well then, how about release it with the game? its so boring right now. The prices for things are ridiculous. Offroad vehicles are pointless. And I KNOW heists are going to be really stupid anyways. Its going to force you to pick a specific way to accomplish the heist instead of letting you and your friends just figure it out. So lame.

-EvoAnubis-1642d ago

@ThatOneGuyThere: So you're selling your copy because you're impatient? Alrighty then.

BlackTar1871642d ago

That one guy,

Sell it move on. I have no need to ever buy Money from R* and i don't play nearly as much as my buddies. I have everything i need right now without boosting cheating replaying or anything. I don't win races cuz i suck at them unless its a motorcycle then i win.

People complaining about buying $ are either really poor with how you spend your money or just repeating some line you read on reddit 100x

RedSoakedSponge1643d ago

how the hell did you come to that conclusion? lmao

Stevino1231643d ago

Tbh, GTA is all about f-ing around.

Lord_Sloth1643d ago (Edited 1643d ago )

It can be but the online was advertised with the heists and UGC, neither of which are even in sight. Had I known they were absent from the online for an unforeseeable amount of time I would have skipped GTAV until they launched the heists.

maximus19851643d ago (Edited 1643d ago )

you'd be a fool then because you'd be behind on having the things required to perform heists. Theres ALOT of missions that require good team work but please complain away

Lord_Sloth1643d ago

Not really complaining, just saiyan that if I knew I would have waited. *shrugs*

Revolver_X_1642d ago

Never seen someone defend a mediocre online the way Maximus is doing.

Stevino1231643d ago

Do you know how big this game is? The biggest selling game? You guys should thank Rockstar for even making this possible even on current gen, they can only do so much.

maximus19851643d ago

HUGE single player. HUGE online with story. free DLC and 500,000 which is enough for any one to buy the most expensive apt from the beggining but hey people have to complain i guess

T21643d ago

Well im less excited about the 500k post patch ,, ive had massive job connection issues and money dissapear from my acct ...

Soc51643d ago

I know it's getting silly. Yes there are some things that need fixing but
Ill take the 500 grand, as a nice apology.
