So last night I was doing alittle shopping in GameStop and noticed this... ha3fS0T.jpg
To my amazement someone actually picked up a megalodon shark card.. I thought to myself " wow this guy is really buying in to rockstar's greed?"
The cash cards are over priced in general but over than that I just was suprised to see shark cards being sold on GameStop stores who knew they would take their greed this far? Does anyone even go into the gamestop to buy a shark card?
And since when was shark cards DLC?

Hey guys. Let's hate on Rockstar because money, Kesh Kerds.

I was curious on my local GameStop and friend/clerk said they sell every now and then. Seemed interesting but that's about it. Also those kinds of cash cards are great as gifts though Microsoft/Sony Currency would be more universal.

eh, I mean if you wanted to get one for a friend you'd buy it there and give it to them.

I still don't get why shark cards are such a big deal other than people thinking they're a funny meme to use.

If that's how they want to spend their cash IRL, more power to them. My problem with cash cards isn't their existence, it's the attempts by Rockstar to push the player base to buy a cash card.

They are offering an OPTIONAL service. It is good business, not greed.

You would be the same pinhead complaining if they didn't offer any cards.

Nobody is making you buy them so why do you care that other people do?

 

It's their own money they can spend it on anything they like.

I think you'd be surprised at the number of adults who buy shark cards just for the simple fact that they don't have the time to grind missions and probably don't know anything in regards to glitches.

Some people value their time more than money.  If you got it, why not.

Rock star isn't pushing them on you. You can make the money if you just take the time to do so. The cash cards target instant gratification types, that's all.

People who don't realise how DLC and cash cards are related make me giggle.

 

You're lucky you can get the DLC without paying, but R* makes a pretty penny from those that do.

And since when was shark cards DLC?

 

Actually, technically they ARE DLC... DLC = DownLoaded Content. When you purchase a shark card, it has to download to your console/cloud in order to save to your characters bank account. Never bought one in a store, but have bought a $10 card once or twice.

 

Would I ever spend $99 on a shark card? --

Meh. Cash Cards are a good way to earn extra money. Free mobile apps do the same thing.

**Constructing a building on of the those "build a city" games**

You want to speed up the process for about 10 tokens but, you only have 3.

**You have the OPTION to either wait until the process is done or spend IRL money to buy tokens and speed it up**

Its for those that cant be bothered to spend time doing something.

That's exactly why most people don't like the idea of cash cards. Free-to-play often becomes pay-to-win.

Some people hate grinding in this game. So to them $100 is rather cheap compared to the price of running your console 24/7 365 days a year to make no where near the price of that card. Would I buy one, f*ck no.

Yep same reason people glitch. Only difference one has money and the other.........well not so much,hence the hate toward Cash Cards. Somethings will never change

lol @ cash cards being DLC since you download content (gta$).

anywho...

I've i ever wanted to buy a CC, I'd buy it in a store like that. I havent had my credit card info on the PSN since the "blackout" a few years ago. (paranoia)

--

ironically(?) I bought my second PS3 from a Gamestop near me, & the zit bag behind the counter made comments about me spending $600 on a new PS, instead of sending my dead 40gb to be fixed. he must have thought I was loaded, because he stole my card info & took monies from my back account. B of A called me before I knew the money was gone & in a few days returned the missing funds.

point of the story?

people = sh*t.
