So i was just wondering since GTA V will have three players to be played as, How will the game set money for each character at the start?
We know Micheal has a good lifestyle so will it start him off with a reasonable amount of money to go and spend? Just wanted to know other people ideas/thoughts!

Good question, IIRC all the past GTA protags never had two nickels to rub together in the very beginning of the game for various reasons, (Claude fresh off an escape from a prison transport, Niko being new to America, Tenpenny taking all CJ's money etc...) but since in V all the protags are already established in and around LS they should start with some money in their pockets, especially Michael, if would be pretty unrealistic for him to be living the high life and his wife to be going on these shopping sprees and he starts with no money. Plus Franklin has a job, and Trevor has his guns and drug business out in the boonies.
So lets say for Michael he starts with around $25,000 to play with(R* did say his fortune was dwindling fast due to his wife and kids spending), allowing you to be able to buy some things and have some money to spend to prep for heists, but not the expensive toys that R* says will be in the game.

For Franklin about $5,000 his illicit job pays decently, but obviously not well enough seeing as how Franklin is still living in a poorer neighborhood, plus he wants to make "big money" so he can't be making that much doing the repo thing.

Trevor also $5,000, his drugs/guns trade seems at the moment to be a one-man op, and the fact that he's battling the Lost MC for control, I'm going to assume the larger organization would he more connections and a bigger hold on the illegal money that's flowing thru that part of town, so while Trevor is making some scratch from his enterprises it wouldn't be much.

I also wonder this, since Michael seems a rich motherf*cker.

I don't think much. It seems simple to explain.

Michael although having the nice lifestyle probably has cash flow problems due to his and his family's lifestyle.

Franklin is up and coming.

Trevor's feud with the bikers over drugs is likely causing him cash flow problems also.

Hence why it's likely these amongst lesser reasons are there motivation to get in the game.

Trevor - next to nothing. Probably blew it all.

Franklin - some money. He does have a repo job.

Michael - he's so rich I wouldn't be surprised if his first mission LOST him some money, and he still has a sh*t ton.

Michael - $5,000

Franklin - $250

Trevor - $150

(ALL STORES ARE CLOSED FOR AT LEAST THE FIRST 5 MISSIONS FOR ALL CHARACTERS,BEAT THEM AND THEN YOU CAN BE ABLE TO GO PURCHASE THINGS)

Also All the protags should lose they're money in the beginnign story wise,such as Michael paying the damage for his wrecked 9F That his wife caused.

Franklin spending it on Chop?

Trevor, buying a bunch of drugs.

and so then they all are COMPLETELY Broke, then the REAL Missions start.

Does anyone remember how much money Luis had in the beginning of tbogt? I would guess that at least Franklin has the same amount of money.

If you think you'll start off wirh 10K or more ... facedesk.gif

What would be the point of it if you can go buy almost anything just as you start the game..?

Considering money will be big in this game, Michael should be in debt and in need of money, just why he starts looking for contacts for heists, when Trevor and Franklin appear.

i have wondered the same exact thing and i applaud you for starting a topic on gta forums that isnt f*cking retarded icon14.gif honestly though i hope its zero. i agree it would make more sense for them to start with money as far as realism goes but its not real life. its a video game. i want to earn every penny i spend. i want to rob, steal, and mug my way to the top.

I'm thinking Michael has around $25,000 at the start, Franklin would probably have maybe $1000, but he can get a good deal on guns from Lamar or something else. Trevor, he's an interesting case. He looks like he wouldn't have a penny to his name, but he has a business with drugs. Perhaps a decent amount, such as $5000 to $10,000.

Michael is back in the heist game because his wife spent all his money. Trevor looks poor but is a drug dealer and cooks his own meth. They'll have close to the same amount of money.

$69.. in typical R* GTA humor.

Ehh maybe around $5. Just enough to buy a meal at Up-n-Atom Burger.

Then you wake up the next day and go to the bank with all of them and..

Michael: $20,000
Franklin: $7,000
Trevor: $5,000

Michael: $10,000 He's got money, but wife spends it all on shopping.
Franklin: $3000 Because he's got the repo job and has probably been helping Lamar.
Trevor: $10 Since he's new in town and probably got there train hopping.

Almost anything? This is not IV. If the heists are gonna give you millions, there'll be millions to spend. 10k will be nothing in this game.

Ill take a wild guess

Michael: $155,673
Trevor: $25,755
Franklin: $20,312

Just enough to buy some toys at the very start and to fund some heists. But in order get the real money you will need to pull of some heists and robberies.

It depends on the cost of items used by the characters.

I don't want to start with 15K and be able to buy an entire closet of clothes which cost $250 and so, I want to earn all of that.

Things like clothes will most likely be cheap, however what the money will really be there for, will not be. And about more powerful guns, most likely they'll not be avaliable at the start, like in RDR.

I wouldn't mind having 1K-3K for some heist tools though, to start off.

Plus properties, rare cars, car customization, weapons customization, upgrades to property. There will be more to spend money in in V than any other GTA game before.
