Report – GTA Online ‘Currency Card’ Details and Prices

It appears that earlier rumors surrounding the introduction of micro-transactions, or ‘currency cards’, to Grand Theft Auto Online are being confirmed by play testers of GTA V’s multiplayer, launching this Tuesday, October 1.

According to reports, players will be able to purchase in-game money through a number of different currency packs using real life money. The real life prices reported so far are only in UK prices, but they are as follows:

  • $100,000 Red Shark Cash Card – £1.99
  • $200,000 Tiger Shark Cash Card – £3.49
  • $500,000 Bull Shark Cash Card – £6.99
  • $1,250,000 Great White Shark Cash Card – £13.49

Keep in mind that the value of objects in GTA Online vary from GTA V, meaning things like cars and houses will be cheaper online, while weapon and car mods might set you back a little more.

Still, no official announcement has been made by Rockstar, so we still await confirmation.

In related news, rumors stemming from items found within the game files suggest drug deals will also play a part in GTA Online.


Hey, as long as it keeps you from doing it in real life, right?

What are your thoughts on the introduction of currency cards in GTA Online? Will it enhance the gameplay, or take away some of the fun?

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    Not that I approve of MTs, but those prices seem somewhat fair.

    Edit: If anyone agrees with me and uses my opinion as a good enough reason to purchase them, I ask that you think very carefully about turning your real money into fake money.


    Speaking of the drug deal code someone found I think the way they had the drug dealing mechanic in Chinatown Wars was perfect. Buy low, sell high, and hope the police don’t catch you before you can get to your stash. I still play that game on my Playstation Vita.

    Meth dealing = 20% increase of Walter White clones = 50% player base of Walter White clones.

    confirmed via rockstar GTA site (no price details) or if you’re the completely instant gratification type, you can choose to buy denominations of GTA$. You will have the option to purchase GTA$ through the in-game Store. The game and its economy have been designed and balanced for the vast majority of players who will not buy extra cash. There is no in-game paywall and nothing that should disrupt the balance of the game. You don’t have to spend real money to attain the cars, guns, clothes, flash and style of a high-roller in Los Santos, but can if you wish to get them a little quicker.

    I read on Kotaku that someone was making millions from buying someone’s shares, and then going off to kill them, thus getting their $’s. Don’t shoot the messenger if it doesn’t work.
