The stimulus package is Rockstar Games' apology for all the troubles during the first days of GTA Online

"Grand Theft Auto Online" gamers will get half a million dollars in GTA$ just for playing this month. 

Rockstar Games -- developer of GTA -- announced today that it will offer GTA Online players a stimulus package of $500,000 in GTA currency just for playing the game or signing up to play it in the month of October. 

The stimulus package is an "I'm sorry" gift from Rockstar Games for the cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters during the first days of GTA Online. 

Before receiving your GTA Online cash, though, gamers are instructed to install the upcoming GTAV title update (1.04), which will allow Rockstar Games to provide the GTA$ stimulus cash to players. It will also fix vehicle purchase loss issues, and gamers can expect to see it next week.

The half a million will be delievered to October gamers in two separate deposits of $250,000 a piece. Rockstar didn't say when these two deposits will take place, but said it would update gamers at Rockstar Newswire

However, Rockstar Games said it expected deposits to start as early as next week.

Conversely, I was playing since Day 1 online and I haven't lost a thing... your loss is my gain! Thanks!

Not really since there is an infinite amount of money to be earned. When I lost everything you gained nothing.
