Rockstar Delays Stimulus Package Pt 1 #GTAV #GTAOnline

Rockstar Games has announced today that they will delay the $250,000 stimulus package which is the first part of a $500K payment GTA Online players will receive. The delay is due to their priority of removing any remaining glitches pertaining to players losing characters and/or progress. When the payment does come through, players will simply log in to find the money in their GTA Online bank accounts. You must have played GTA Online for some amount of time during the month of October 2013 in order to be eligible. GTA Online is free with Grand Theft Auto V and at this time cannot be purchased separately. Stay tuned to RealGamerNewz.com for the latest on this developing story.

**UPDATE – Payment Delayed** GTA$ Stimulus Package Pt 1 Begins This Week, $250,000 For Each Player

**UPDATE** Rockstar Delays Stimulus Package Pt 1

A couple of days ago Rockstar Games dropped the 1.04 patch for Grand Theft Auto V addressing some GTA Online issues including high payouts for plot-based missions that were being exploited (played over and over again in rapid succession). This was seen to some serious critical response from a small niche of gamers while the rest of us have continued enjoying the MMO-ish experience presented by this third person / open-world action game. One thing that most gamers will agree is a good thing though is that Rockstar has also added the ability for them to make the first $250,000 deposit in banks of all GTA Online players as the first half of their $500K Stimulus Package.

Rockstar has announced that players should expect this initial $250,000 payment to be directly deposited into their bank accounts some time this week. The exact date and time will be revealed right here on RealGamerNewz.com in our GTA V Articles Section. As previously announced by Rockstar, players won’t have to do anything to receive this money and instead will just log in to find that the money has arrived. As long as everything goes according to plan the second deposit will be made approximately 2 weeks after the first one.

Another good thing the patch did was limit the amount of money lost to just $500 when you’re walking around in Free Roam. In addition to the $500K Stimulus Package Rockstar will also release the following free content over the coming weeks:

“Four free updates are planned for GTA Online including the Beach Bum Pack which adds a couple of vehicles, two new weapons, and clothes, the Content Creator Mode which allows players to make their own Deathmatches, Races, and more, a Capture the Flag Mode, and of course the long-awaited Online Heists Missions which are set to be the icing on the cake for GTA Online and very well may determine the game’s longevity over time.”

Grand Theft Auto V 1.04 Patch Released for PlayStation 3; DLC / Update Info, ‘Heists’ Info

The latest GTA V patch gamers have been waiting for has now arrived on the PlayStation Network for Sony PS3 players.  GTA V version 1.04 patch is 39 MB and is said to update a number of features in GTA Online including grouping exploiters and cheaters together away from other players using the Good Sport / Bad Sport system as well as detecting foul play among people exploiting the game for unfair advantages (including money-wise).

Other tweaks have been made to the game which will likely take the community some time to discover, such as balancing tweaks on how much money players win / lose in certain jobs.

The patch also makes it possible for Rockstar Games to deliver the first $250k of their $500,000 Stimulus Package which will have its direct deposit dates announced soon, and although its uncertain yet whether or not it will add heists to the game many are hoping it will.

Four free updates are planned for GTA Online including the Beach Bum Pack which adds a couple of vehicles, two new weapons, and clothes, the Content Creator Mode which allows players to make their own Deathmatches, Races, and more, a Capture the Flag Mode, and of course the long-awaited Online Heists Missions which are set to be the icing on the cake for GTA Online and very well may determine the game’s longevity over time.

**UPDATE: The patch is now live on Xbox 360’s XBL as well and will also limit the amount of money players lose for dying when not in missions to just $500.
