GTA V 1.06 patch leaves thousands unhappy

If you haven’t heard already, Rockstar has now deployed the GTA V 1.06 patch for PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms. Unfortunately though, it appears that not everyone is happy with the update – despite the fact that it comes bundled with free DLC.

The GTA 1.06 patch notes are also live with the update and it reveals many gameplay changes that consumers have raised doubts over. Specifically, complaints are pouring in on Rockstar’s newswire website, over another reduction in income that affects those that regularly participate in GTA V Online races.

Players are not happy with the recent changes Rockstar have made, one of which has been detailed by Rockstar in their notes which reads: “The GTA$ and RP rewards for Races, Deathmatches and Parachuting are now based on the average time they take to complete”.

You only need to head to their comment section to see that thousands upon thousands of comments are coming in, most of which are in a negative fashion which is disappointing to see. We have included one such complaint for you here which we feel sums up how many GTA V players are feeling right now.

Some of you are clearly unhappy about this..

Another big issue that came with the 1.06 update that players are not happy about, is Rockstar removing the ability to store police cars in their garages. This had become a very fun aspect of the game for some players, but the next time you load up the game on 1.06, you’ll find that your police cars have vanished from your garages.

View the full list of changes here and let us know what you think of the state of the game now. Are you unhappy about the police car and reduced payout from races? Let’s forward to the next patch – or not.
