Rumor: Grand Theft Auto Online ‘cash cards’ allow players to purchase in-game money
Authored by Tyler Colp
Grand Theft Auto Online could allow players to purchase in-game money with real money, Reddit user 1880 has found in the game’s data files.
Currently, the game has a “Store” option in the menu, but when selected, nothing is available. The game references a specific file that includes descriptions of purchasable “Cash Cards”.
One of the card descriptions reads:
Cash is king in this town. Solve your money problems and help get what you want across Los Santos and Blaine County with the purchase of cash packs for Grand Theft Auto Online. All purchased cash is automatically deposited into your character’s bank account. Spend wisely, cash therapy is fleeting.
The cards come in multiple in-game amounts: $100,000, $200,000, $500,000, and $1,250,000. If true, it’s unclear how much Rockstar would charge for each card.
Each card has an image associated with it, which are viewable here.
Grand Theft Auto Online launches October 1 for those who have purchased Grand Theft Auto 5.
