Something that just crossed my mind is about player funds. Will each character have his own funds. For instance, Trevor has 25k, Franklin has 30K, and Michael has 50K.

Of is it all just our, the player's, funds and any character can dip into the pool when playing as them...

This seriously changes alot of stuff doesnt it

Well, I hope we see something like Crews implemented in single player. Where they can all three put their money together for heists and such.

Rockstar also said that each protag will have different features in terms of minigames so maybe we can drug deal with Franklin, do heists with Mike, ect. so they can all have their own steady source of income. But yeah I imagine there will be 3 different wallets, for different needs of course.

Yeah good question. I think id like for them to all have separate wallets. That will give you more to do.

This is how I will see it...

But it leads to an even bigger question... how do purchases work. Each person buys his own guns and what not. Can you give weapons to eachother, can I give Trevor money from Michael to get some nicer clothes???

I think 3 seperate wallets is what they're aiming for, because it'll give us a taste of what it's like to feel big and rich when we're Michael, and then swap to Trevor or Franklin and be living in the sticks with no money. It would help give us a feeling of what their circumstances are like. Rich vs Poor experience.

Maybe a bank system on the phone to easily transfer money to other characters. I don't see to much problems with having three wallets, the characters are trying to make a lot of money anyway and there will problably be many missions and activities to earn more. Actually it might be a good motivation to actually play things like drug deals or repossesing cars (and I'm just guessing these are features).

Constantly playing as Mike. Earn lots of money as Mike. Franklin can look after himself. Trevor has no money. Trevor dies O.o

Micheal is running out of money, his wife is spending more than he's got..

Hence why he is getting back in the business, he might have some more than the rest, but not much..

Maybe they'll have a shared bank account that they can all borrow from or make a deposit to. So you could switch money easily between characters when one needs it more than the others.

I think to start with it will be seperate wallets... (well they will stay seperate), but with the heists, some kind of "pot" that's shared by the 3 will be availible too. ATM's were added in IV but not usable (although, to me, they looked like they were usable at some point on the alpha/beta then functionality removed, my reason is becuase they are high detail, and in games generally highest level of detail means its usable.), so IMO theres a high chance they will have some kind of shared bank. Obv Heist $ cant go in there (it will be highly unrealistic if it does), but thats where the buisnesses might come into it (although i guess car theft and/or cannabis crop $ cant either:P ).

That or they just stay seperate, and heist $ is divided.

I cant see it will be stuck as one wallet the whole time, esspecially seeing as they are going for charecter "bond".

Post below made me think ATM's.

I think somewhere along the story they'll set up a joint bank account or the like and money will be shared. Doesn't make sense from a gameplay perspective to have 3 different wallets. It'll cause more frustration than anything. Although I could maybe see rockstar figuring something out to make 3 wallets work.

Edit: or what the guys above said. Same wave length.

I also think every character will have his own money, but I doubt that transfers will be available. Michael will be rich, so he will definitely have no problems for getting money or will have more money in the beginning of the game than the other two.

In his "intro" in GI it says his money is running out and fast, thats why he is getting back into crime. I dont think he will start off massivly rich... i think better safe house and car to start with seems more likely (and better other sh*t we dont know is in the game yet)

Yeah it's all new.
GTA always had this Rags to riches storyline.
But with these new approach I really have no idea how this will work out in the start.

So many questions!!! suicidal.gif

Cool Idea. Micheal will be rich, Franklin will already have money from stealing cars, but what about Trevor? Can we set up robberies and heists without the whole team together. What i mean is, as Trevor, I want to get my gun out and rob a little jewelry store to gain some extra cash. Then Trevor will escape the police, and go spend the money on drugs or something. But I want to initiate robberies as one character to see how much money i can make without help. I hope there are a lot of interior stores we can go to so we can rob them. I also want a feature where I can rob people in the street or hold someone up at gunpoint in an alleyway. That would be awesome.

If one of my characters loans anything to another of my characters, it better get paid back, or else.

The way I look at it, if they're working together, they'll likely pool their resources (money) together.

My thoughts on this:

Each protag has its own bank account/amount of money, though, they can transfer money to a collective trust/account. From what we can tell as this moment from the preview, they work as team (maybe at some point they would split, but that, we don't know yet), so I think this is plausible. If Micheal has 50K$, Trevor 10K$ & Franklin 20$ in their respective individual accounts, they can transfert money to the collective one & each of them can use that collective account to add to his own. The "beauty" of the commune & individual system is that it doesnt prevent R* to set individual goals for each protag. For instance, you have to buy X type of vehicule/weapon & only one of the protag can buy it because of its own unique skill. The vehicule/weapons costs 25K$, must be bought ONLY by Trevor and he only has 10K$ in his personnal account. He can take the extra 15 grand from the collective account. The thing is that it could "force without forcing" you to switch protags. By that, I mean that maybe some missions give you more money if you play them with X protag or maybe the specific missions of X protag pays more than the specific missions of Y, but you still need to gain 25K$ with Y to buy the explosive neccessary for another mission. So it "forces" you to switch, because you would get the money you need quicker, but it doesn't forces you because you could have gotten the money anyway. It also open the doors for more moral choices (you need 15K for Trevor to buy a weapon, but at the same time, you need 20K for Franklin to buy a get away car, you choose the get in or the get away ?) & greatly add to realism. In my opinion, it fits with what R* keeps on telling us "bold new direction" + "new use of money". It also adds a great management aspect to the game.

I thought about the money thing too. But the first thing I wondered is if you're one protagonist, can you park your car at anothers place, and save there, or have to go to your own.
