Grand Theft Auto Online Microtransactions Spotted

Posted on September 24, 2013 AT 02:46am

It appears that Grand Theft Auto Online will allow users to purchase in-game cash using their own money, according to evidence unearthed by Reddit users.

According to Reddit user “1880,” when you open the store section in Grand Theft Auto V the console requests an XML file. The XML file includes the downloadable content from the game’s special editions, but there are also four “Cash Cards” ranging from $100,000 to $1,250,000. The cards have the following description:

“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.”

You can check out images of the four cards here. Grand Theft Auto Online is set to go live on October 1 for all owners of Grand Theft Auto V.
