GTA Online Membership Announcement Results in Intense Criticism

Yesterday, Rockstar Games announced its new GTA+ membership program for GTA Online, and it has gone down just as well as you’d expect. The premium membership is exclusive to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S players, who are guaranteed a monthly deposit of GTA$500,000 into their Maze Bank accounts alongside some other perks and bonuses for a monthly fee of $6.

What players are saying about GTA Online membership

One would be hard-pressed to find more than one or two positive responses to the announcement. Some players have suggested that GTA+ is an attempt to counter dwindling sales of Shark Cash Cards. Others have pointed out that the monthly deposit is too low to even consider forking out $6 a month and the rest of the membership bonuses are easily obtainable by playing. Then, there’s the Career Builder for new players so it makes little sense to have GTA+.

“Your players are also paying upfront for PSN and XBL, not to mention there’s still no dedicated servers in sight,” wrote Twitter user videotech_. “Be better.” “Guys, April Fools is in one week,” wrote another.

Interestingly, there’s a stark contrast between the discourse surrounding GTA Online and GTA V, and the latter’s sales. Just yesterday, Games Industry reported that GTA V de-seated Elden Ring in the UK digital sales charts following its PS5 and Xbox Series X/S launch, making this the third generation of gaming platforms that GTA V dominates.

In other news, a market analysis firm has said that PS5 supply issues are worse than anticipated, and Gran Turismo 7’s credit payouts are being fixed.
