By now, you’ve heard and probably experienced severe issues in the highly anticipated GTA Online which launched only yesterday. With Rockstar’s cloud service being down out, many players couldn’t start some online missions.
In the midst of this problem, Rockstar has recently disabled the microtransaction packs of Grand Theft Auto V according to a recent Rockstar NewsWire post which states the following:
For the time being and until we have been able to get everybody access to GTA Online and things are running smoothly, we have disabled the option of purchasable GTA$ cash packs. All of these initial technical issues will be ironed out as soon as we can. Please know that the entire team here at Rockstar and all of our relevant partners are and will continue to be working around the clock to get the experience to be as smooth as possible, as soon as possible.
Though those who are lucky enough to get into an online session of GTA Online are still able to earn cash in-game. Additionally, at the moment, Rockstar has been able to successfully restore GTA Online for people playing on the PlayStation 3 with an Xbox 360 fix to follow soon.
