So Rockstar stated that GTA Online will be free on all platforms, doens't require online passes etc. But does that mean, that I do have to buy Gold membership on Xbox or not?
Would be stupid to say.. "You get this for free but you have to pay to use it"

It's only $40 for a year if you look around, it's hardly going to break the bank!

I doubt it, PS3 has always had free online gaming, and Rockstar clearly stated that there's not gonna be extra charge for online.
Only that for Xbox it has always costed money.. Too bad I ain't paying twice for one product. I'm already paying over 60e to play the game, why the hell would I pay another to play online?

Well some people can't afford alot of stuff. I've been saving for months to get GTA V to be honest.. I'm not paying 40-60 euros to play it online as I cannot even afford it.

For PS + yes. The XBL Servers are just better and more secure.

Playing online on PS3 is free. Always have been and probably always will.

You get one month free of Gold when you create a new account, you can do this 5 times. So if you don't care about ranking up and all that and you just wanna play, you can always do that. PC version might come out within 5 months.

I used those with IV already lel, and few other games.
Nice suggestion though. Well I guess I'm gonna steal my neighbours PS3 and V when he picks the game up.. then I sell the stuff to him 2 years after. His name is Ned btw.

The whole console war is bullsh*t. Be glad there is some actual competition dumbasses. Otherwise you'd pay 2 times as much when buying a new console.

Let me clarify some things.

1. GTA Online is an "Online" game obviously. So you need access to online play. The Xbox silver membership does not allow for online play, so you would need a gold membership to play.

2. Playstation 3 does not currently require any fee or membership to play online. Therefore you will be able to play GTA Online for free (not including the cost of the game of course).

3. Rockstar has confirmed that there will be dedicated servers. Therefore the discrepancies between Xbox and PS3 online play will be null and void.

Feel free to PM me if any of this is completely wrong. Locked.
