GTA V 1.05 update needs Heists, not Stimulus Package

Are you patiently waiting for Rockstar to announce the GTA V Heists DLC release date already? It seems like we have been waiting an eternity for this content to arrive since the launch of the game, but unfortunately it looks like Rockstar are happy to keep fans waiting in preference to a continued push on the GTA cash cards.

At the end of last month we asked you what fixes needed to come with the GTA V 1.05 update and now you have answered in the masses. It’s clear that the majority of gamers want GTA V Heists to arrive with 1.05 update, but sadly we doubt it will happen due to the Stimulus Package.

Rockstar has sent out word on their website that the 1.05 update is almost ready and will release early next week on PS3 and Xbox 360. As you know, the first payment will be offered to gamers with a cool $250,000 deposited into each and every account that played the game in October.

The GTA V 1.05 patch will go live early at the start of the week and should specifically improve the odds of your character not being deleted the next time you boot up online mode. Then, towards the end of next week Rockstar has said that the Stimulus Package release date should finally be upon.

Is it what you want though? We have a feeling that if you ask the majority of GTA V players, most will turn round and say that they are willing to skip the free $500,000 in favor of having brand new Heists missions to play.

Most players believe it will be a method of earning legitimate cash after the mission income was cut by half. Having said that, some also speculate that the easy-earning potential of Heists is what is keeping it from being released, since Rockstar wants to advertise their cash card system further.

Do you agree that you would rather see Heists next week, than the Stimulus Package? Give us your thoughts on this below.

I have a 360 and I was wondering if anyone know if my online stats and ranking will be the same for the xbox one or would I have to start all over from zero?

The “Candy Crush” aspect of GTA5 is driving me mad! Why can’t I save a “hot” car if I find one?

In all honesty yes, We would love to have heist already all the content we had have been played over and over and on top of that when you play them over the payouts are now cut in half…. so this has become a bit retarded >_>

I’m now playing Battlefield 4 as I have got the rank 100 achievement I wanted, Got to rank 128, Got a 10 car garage with all vehicles i want fully upgraded. There is nothing else to play for. Does become very boring with nothing new. And i cant see how future dlc will make it better than what it already was.

CoD fans are making it sound like they are the only ones keeping this game going. I am so sick of hearing about how GTA Online is going to lose all of its players because Ghosts is out. If you have played one CoD game, you have played them all. I lost a level 64 character and about 10 million in cash and assets but I still give Rockstar the benefit of the doubt. Cloud gaming is still in its infancy and of course anything that new is going to have problems. Also, yes, they are trying to get people… Read more »

We all knew a year ago that GTAV would be a game driven by a system of economics. You all who are complaining, need to relax and take a page from Economics 101: A [balanced economic] system cannot function properly in an environment of unchecked variables. Rockstar is simply balancing the economic system and adjusting the games parameters based on metrics they’re pulling from gameplay statistics. It’s almost as if you people think GTA V was just there, and Rockstar came along to change things…they designed everything you’re experiencing right now. As Leslie Benzies stated: “GTA Online is only the… Read more »

No we need the money itsso hard making the money by yourself so why dont you people just stop to think “i dont have a house” or “oh i need a car jerk keep blow the cars i get up” or i wann just go to a freaking stip club and get all the dancers to like me. We can wait for the heists because some people are alredy lvl. 100+ so it will be available to those people while they may $1000000 a day while other people have to wait to get 4 people to do the heist 1… Read more »

Heists first, cash cards later, I bought a cash card and I didn’t get the money for a few days, and I only got it then because I complained to rockstar. After that my character was deleted so I lost everything I spent that money on anyway. Rockstar have said many times that microtransactions are optional but they really are trying to make us buy them. Me and all of my friends agree that gta online is getting very boring very quickly because nothing new is being released and we all want heists to be released.

Rockstar used to be held in high regards in my mind. This game has changed that drastically.

They’ll probably take you a week to set up. Cost you more in ammo, equipment and vehicle mods than you’ll actually make for the Heist itself. Their main priority over the past weeks seem to be making sure people earn less money, than actually being able to play problem free.

watch how heists only net you max 25k or you can only do them once a week to try to restrict cashflow so honest people have to pay for fake gta money
