Twitch x Prime Bonus Content

You don't need a credit card to sign up just for Twitch, just Twitch/Amazon Prime. It's a verification check otherwise you could make endless Amazon accounts and get a free year round subscription.

Makes sense. Thanks

I'm hoping these Twitch bonuses will be the same as the "additional future benefits" from the 2-step verification. I'd be happy with that.

I'm the only one who thinks that some "exclusive" Twitch liveries for cars, weapons or whatever would look jarring as hell?

 

Like, it's not the whole point of the GTA series being set in a parody world, full with parody brands?

 

It would look literally like one of those mod videos on YouTube.

Tacky af, lol! I wouldn't be upset if I didn't get a livery or shirt; after all, why would I want or need to drive or walk around and freely advertise for a company that means nothing to me. 😜

I agree wholeheartedly with this. As I said to the other person I was going back and forth with I don't want to spend money on something I don't use nor do I want to be signing up for services I likewise wouldn't use. I'm okay with exclusives that are granted from in game promotions or event weeks and to a lesser extent exclusive items gained by buying something from the game company but I'm not going to roll with third party purchase exclusives. And all this talk about exclusive cars, those cars won't be exclusive long once a give cars to friends glitch comes out.

Same, I'm not a huge fan of exclusive content as a whole, but if things start getting walled off unless we sign up for something else and are required to maintain those subscriptions, count me out of investing in certain future titles.

 

I'd never use Twitch, so it would be a pointless waste for me to pay for it just for the sake of having access to additional content. I'm just hoping this is restricted to only gaining additional currency and/or discounts. I'd definitely hate to see this become the norm and just what they may try and get away though.

but if we couldn't buy a specific car or apartment because we're not subscribed to a certain service, essentially forcing us to buy third-party services to keep up with the latest content, then that would bother me a lot and might turn me off completely.

I wouldn't mind it working similar to the playstation exclusives in RDO, where maybe twitch prime members get a car or clothing item free or at a discount, then it becomes available at regular price to non-twitch members.

I hope so, TBH. I have zero problems with special benefits like that.

If $13/mo makes or breaks you, it's time to reevaluate your life.

 

Trust me, I have a *very* well-paying job. But, 1) what the hell is Twitch, and 2) I don't waste my money on stupid or useless things. $13 or $1,300 - the number isn't important, it's the service that's provided and whether I want/need it or not. In this case, probably not. I have a feeling I'd forget to cancel my trial membership and be pissed that I spent $13 on something that I don't even understand or use; again, not because of the dollar amount.

Sure, $13 by itself isn't that much money, but when you have Bill's and other subscriptions (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) All that money starts to add up. I only have Amazon prime (and in turn Twitch Prime) because I mooch off of my parents who have it because I can't afford it myself. Not everyone has cushy jobs that pay a lot (being a zookeeper is an amazing job but it definitely doesn't pay the bills) so there's a lot of people who have to choose how much money they spend very carefully. Don't be a troll, not everyone can afford frivolous subscription services.

Not to go too off topic here, but why on earth would you hope for such to become a reality? It may seem harmless enough at first; say them giving away an exclusive shirt or something for being a Twitch member or whatever, but where would they draw the line? To restrict content based upon how much real money you're willing to spend elsewhere is infinitely worse than the current microtransaction system. I'm sorry, I just don't see why anyone would be hopeful for this; it can certainly sour a gaming experience if we're constantly being monetized from each and every direction and when everything starts being locked off unless you're willing to dump even more money into the game or into external services that we don't want/ need in the first place.

I have zero problem with companies making branding deals to benefit their subscribers. I look forwarded to my added benefits and exclusive content. If you don't want/need it, don't buy in. There are plenty of things in this world I don't buy if I don't want them, and don't make a stink about because I am locked out of it. It is the choice we make as adults. This thread is a perfect example of this forum as a whole as of late... R* owes me free stuff because reasons.

And second of all, I think this topic will get locked if we don't stay on topic. Has anyone else confirmed that the trial membership works? I know @MARINA said it did. Can anyone validate?

I've seen one or two people say they signed up using the free trial and got the rewards, but I'm not sure if you'll continue to get any of the future rewards with the free trial

Not asking for free stuff and not saying that I feel as though R* owes me anything. I'm just saying that once companies start locking exclusive content behind having subscriptions to external services, then there's a problem. It just becomes yet another way to try and bleed money from us; this time through some orchestrated deal with yet another large company. Regardless if it's a few dollars here and there or several hundred at once, there comes a time when enough is enough and we're forced to make the adult choice of speaking out and no longer supporting them until they change their ways. Thankfully it hasn't devolved to that point just yet, but I'm very sceptical about their motives and nothing would surprise me going forward.

I don't know how it works but I already had a twitch account, I signed up through Amazon prime (I'm in Australia if that means anything) and got the 30 day trial and just linked up from there. Broughy1322 mentioned this in his new video:

Free trial works.... if you can get it to work.

Refuses to register Twitch Prime for me, when it clearly recognizes I have Amazon Prime

How long does it take to get the rewards in game?

i linked all mine yesterday bcos I already had amazon prime instead of Netflix and had twitch to support a few friends who stream so might as well 🤷🏻‍♀️

Haven’t seen any money as of yet but I think it usually takes about 72 hours so I won’t freak out yet lol

 

As for exclusive content: from what I’ve read it’s gonna be extra money bonuses, maybe an extra bit of discount every week/targeted sales. 

If they did bring out a car I would imagine it would just be cheaper for twitch prime users rather than an exclusive but who knows?

 

if you already have amazon/twitch prime, you might as well. 

If you don’t, then obv there’s no point (although I will say that prime tv does have some good shows to watch, I stopped using Netflix cos there was absolutely nothing decent on the uk version but prime has tons like Buffy, Angel, TWD, Supernatural, The X Files, Will and Grace etc. I think it’s about £7.99 a month and you get prime included with it)

The newswire said you have to play online for about 30 minutes after you link your twitch account for it to register, then you would get the money 24-48 hours after it registers

Everyone needs to be aware/remember that people with linked battlenet accounts have all their twitch chat data passed to Blizzard, and you can have your battlenet account banned for what you typed on twitch, an entirely separate platform, if Blizzard find it objectionable. It's possible that this Rockstar Social Club link-up could secretly also be doing the same.

Because others are getting it and I don't, what do you mean WHY lol

Because in Apex Legends all I had to do is add "+prime_linked_1" or something in the launch command to get their stupid benifits. Sure they deleted my purple pathfinder skin but I still kept the 10 lootboxes (which, oddly, 3 of them contained legendaries)

Because Rockstar keep f*cking me with all kinds of GTA$ messes, They owe me up to 10m with all the money I didn't get even though I should have over the years. (I owe them about 80m from glitching but that's none of their concern.)

Because I hate pay to win, and twich prime is exactly that, you gotta link a credit card or some sh*t, you can cancel it and still get the GTA$ before you pay anything I'm pretty sure, but you still gotta link that card.

+ It annoys me that it's mostly a 'murican thing, with that amazon and all. I want 1,250,000$ without having to be from tHe lAnd oF tHe fRee

Because I hate these cross account promos and I feel they're keeping me down and behind by doing this sh*t. Was bad enough with the facebook promo but I somehow got on that wagon but this crap is beyond my reach and I feel betrayed.

 

I know, you feel like all is fair and I shouldn't feel entitled to that 1,250,000$, but I don't much care about your smartassery.

I know too well you don't need my elaboration because we both know there's nothing that can really justify my feelings. You just wanna be a smartass don't you? Well go on then troll ahead, I'll still feel like I deserve their gift money more than you or anyone who owns and links twich or amazon or whatever, because I can :)

 

 

EDIT: ^ This is just "cranky-just-woke-up" mumbling, but to put it in proper terms:

I know I'm not entitled to that slice of GTA$ and there's no rational reason for me to feel that way, but I still want that money, and having a paywall and other limitations in the way, I'm a bit saddened that I can't get it as easily as other people, like Twitch streamers or Amazon costumers, so I'm letting the bratty kid in me have his say about how displeased we both are with the situation :)

I'm a smartass cuz I asked you to elaborate? OK yep that's new. Just woke up? Sure, totally believe you.

 

You feel entitled to the 1.25m. You don't just want it, you feel entitled to it. But you can't justify it so you're just another garden variety douchebag on these forums :

Quick heads-up for anyone signing up for Amazon Prime trials - they may start automatically charging you for the service if you don't cancel within your free 30-day free period.

 

Don't get caught out if you're just in it for the freebies, folks.

I dropped a wall of text with the sole purpose of explaining exactly that ^ and you just repeat it.

 

I don't NEED to justify it. Not to you, not to Rockstar, not even to myself.

I feel entitled do I? You've been inside my head so you can just.. Determine that?

I feel like I'm missing. Not entitlement. Learn the difference you uncultured swine.

 

Just because I used an obvious exaggeration to express my frustration by using the word "owe" doesn't mean you can assume to know how I feel.

 

Being called smartass for being a smartass is new to you? I highly doubt that. You're a smartass.

Let's be honest. What's there to elaborate? The meaning behind my text is obvious to anyone older than 12 years of age, but you felt the need to wear your smarty pants and try to bait a contradiction to a statement which YOU KNEW was an idiom. You can try to deny it and play dumb but you won't convince me. It will only tighten the belt.

 

...And you don't believe me for stating I just then woke up. Ok..?

...Because everyone lives in the same time zone as you?...
