Microtransaction prices for GTA Online items reportedly leaked

GTA 5’s multiplayer component, GTA Online, will be supported by in-game items ranging in price from £1.99 to £13.49, according to a Eurogamer source said to have early access to the game.

Images of four in-game ‘Cash Cards’ were first uncovered by Reddit users earlier this week. Eurogamer claims in-game cash packs are available in four sizes: a $100,000 Red Shark Cash Card costing £1.99, a $200,000 Tiger Shark Cash Card priced at £3.49, a $500,000 Bull Shark Cash Card costing £6.99, and a $1,250,000 Great White Shark Cash Card priced at £13.49.

The site notes that, while GTA Online and GTA 5 are set in the same game world, in-game item costs vary between the two. Cars and properties are said to be relatively inexpensive in GTA Online, while weapon and car mods are reportedly pricier than GTA 5’s. It’s claimed that GTA Online players can only own one property at a time and are initially limited to buying pistols and a single vehicle. Many items are said to be out of normal financial reach at the beginning of the experience and only accessible once players have ranked up their character.

Rockstar has so far declined to comment on reports that GTA Online will support microtransactions.

    Hopefully those prices aren't correct, considering how small those cash amounts are in the story mode.

    Relax guys. I bet it's mostly about cosmetically pimping your rides and apartment and clothing. I highly doubt that R* would let GTA become like COD.

    Welp the multiplayer is ruined. At least the main game is still great.

    Yep, Rockstar, the developer behind the fastest-selling entertainment product of all time, needs more money. Because MONEY MONEY MONEY.
