Back in August, Rockstar announced players who reached legend in MP3 would receive exclusive content in GTA:O. As soon as I heard about this, I went out and dropped $60 on that game. I spent the next two months trying to reach top rank.

 

Now I'm sitting here with this awesome MP3 character and nobody in GTA:O knows it. Will Rockstar ever give us MP3 players the recognition we deserve?

Lmao R* made you buy one if their other games! You won't get something for it, just 60 dollars less in your pocket. Too bad. ;)

I'm not aware of this exclusive content you mentioned, but it's pretty f*cked up if you didn't get something that was promised. Why didn't you just submit a ticket to R* asking why?

$60 after a few years? I find that hard to believe especially since I got it for $5 a few days ago on PSN.

 

Also you should have a link to the R* "announcement" to prove it's true.

Your reward is the MP3 crew, crew emblem, etc.

 

Don't be greedy. R*'s got better things to do atm.

I paid $60 for it when it first came out, and it is a good game but dropping $60 on it for a feature in another game is just silly.

Welcome to marketing ploys 101. Rockstar got you to buy another one of their games without actually promising you anything substantial at all. That "exclusive" could be anything from an exclusive set of cars, vehicles, guns, clothes, and maps, etcetera, all the way down to a a little green check mark next your name on the social club page. Hope you learned something from this experience. You have any idea how many companies have went, "PRE-ORDER NOW! AND GET EXCLUSIVE CONTENT!" and you get like a f*cking 1" key chain for your character to wear under his belt that nobody can see? A lot of them...

"You know what capitalism is? Gettin' f*cked."

 

MP3 looks like a great game, and I may buy it. But today you can get for the same price as a $1.2 million cash card.

This.

 

But, lol Max Payne 3 players.

 

If anyone deserves some rewards, it's us max ranks in Red Dead Redemption.

 

I didn't spend 70 days on there for nothing!

I also remember Rockstar saying that people who had Max Payne 3 would be rewarded with something in Online. Either they forgot about that, or they were simply trying to get more people to buy the game. I've had MP3 since its launch, but it still would have been cool to at least get something like a Max Payne leather jacket and Hawaiian shirt for Online.

I reached legend #3 so yeah. If there's a special reward for completing that masterpiece of a game (I'm not being sarcastic, it's better than most shooters, including V) I'm waiting for it.

The games you mentioned have very much to do with GTA V...do some research before opening your mouth.

I was hoping someone here had already done that, but it seems everyone has forgotten about this. I'll try contacting Rockstar about it through their mouthoff email.

To be honest, I'd be happy just having Max's leather jacket for my online character.

what they have to do with V?

that they used some game mechanics and stuff from mp3/rdr? thats it...

when i say unrelated im talking about the story and background of the game. apart from those game mechanics, there is NOTHING that connects V with MP3 or RDR.

you're welcome!

I bought the Special Edition back on release and I did actually hear about them providing some exclusive stuff for those who played it, but I believe you had to be the maximum rank, I'm only like level 20 in the game because of how dead it became quickly.

 

From what I see, I'm glad I didn't give in to waste plenty of weeks just for digital stuff that would be meaningless.

Well, all they said was that they would give "little bonuses" if an MP3 character was at a certain level.

 there is NOTHING that connects V with MP3

 

Rockstar crews connect Max Payne 3 and GTA Online. The use of GTA V and the creation of Rockstars official crew system were used very heavily in the promotion of Max Payne 3, I dont know how many times it was mentioned the crews & rivalries carry over to GTA, which confuses me as crews mean nothing in GTA V compared to MP3... there arent even any leaderboards.

 

Back in MP3 it was non-stop crew vs crew gang wars,  get your guns out and fight , no tanks  no prison thugfights bullsh*t, no waiting for lobbies to fill either.

And the crews that came out on top of all these nonstop daily ongoing warfare  got all the recognition and glory.

Now its all about who can make the best youtube video or who can take pretty pictures of butterflies and deer that get featured on the newswire.

 

Not to mention the CEO of Rockstar Games Leslie Benzies said in an August interview flat out  that high level players in MP3 would be rewarded for their ongoing support of the game and crew system.

The silver skull mask we have in GTAO is quite similiar to the social club exclusive mask unlocked for Max Payne 3 multiplayer, I suspect they just unlocked it for everyone in fear of the bitching that may ensue.
