Amidst a partial government shutdown, its difficult to remember that the government was once able to get its s&^t together sufficiently enough to launch a stimulus package and get millions of Americans back to work. Now that the government is shut down we need to look elsewhere for a stimulus package, and that takes us to Rockstar Games, the makers of Grand Theft Auto V.

GTA V Offers Stimulus Package For Online Players

GTA V is the first to have an online mode

As an apology to those that are using GTA V’s online mode and have witnessed servers being unavailable, sessions timing out, missions failing to load properly, and becoming stuck in loading screens; the hugely successful Rockstar Games is making amends by offering players $500,000 in in-game currency.

Despite the fact that GTA is in its fifth iteration, GTA V is the first to have an online mode.

“For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in these first days of GTA Online, we hope this GTA$ helps to facilitate a fresh start, or makes your continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet,” Rockstar said in a blog post.

The gift to players costs Rockstar nothing, but it’s the thought that counts. In order to earn that sort of money players would either need to play for hours or pay ten real world dollars. Rockstar has not announced when the “cash” will be made available to people who have played the game this month, but did say that it would be made in two installments following the downloading of a patch to fix the issues that players have experienced. Presently, that patch is available for the PlayStation 3 and will be coming to the XBox 360 sometime this weekend.

Grand Theft Auto V has been a resounding success

Outside of glitches in the online version of the game, which was released earlier this week, Grand Theft Auto V has been a resounding success. The game brought in revenues of over $900 on the launch day that saw stores all over the world with lines winding around the block when the game was released at midnight. It has received critical praise as well as presently holding seven world records for its sales numbers.
