If it was I'd be drowning in shekels right now.

Sadly no, the only way to make money in GTAO at the moment is to glitch.

Gta online has gotten old fast. I'm at level 30 and haven't glitched but just bought my high end apartment. However the game really is pretty thin. I don't see the point in spending ages to level up or save up to get weapons or cars as I can do anything I want in single player.

Am I missing something? Missions in online can be fun bit are ultimately pointless.

Bought some and the price went down, lost about 6k (oh noes) :P The ZIT has burst.

Sticking with PIS for now, good solid returns, something like 10% returns every 24 hours. Also completed the main storyline today so can sink my $35m per person on it.

ZIT may be cheap but if the growth rate is equal to PIS it makes no difference.

Going to do the assassination missions and see how much I can rake in. If I can buy all the properties I'll feel like the game is done and I can happily leave it gathering dust and then replay it in a year or so.

Damn fine game.

PS3 cloud had a hiccup this morning for a couple of hours, Tons. Every share took a tumble.

I'm hanging on to ZIT for a while. Could be the next PIS or HAL at the rate its going. Helps that it bottomed out earlier last week. Its a cheap gamble.

The one thing missing from this game for me is being able to jump into a police car and hunt criminals. Used to be able to get into some fantastic car chases.

I really wish someone would release the equivalent of GTA Police or a remake of G-Police. It's amazing the lack of cop games when you think about the potential scope for them.

saw my son having some fun with online. getting a carrier helo, hooking cars .. flying around .. and dropping the cars on players. finding inventive ways of getting into the army base, by using a steep ridge near a bridge as a ramp, hitting at full speed and flying over the army base perimeter wall.

started a crew, they had about 6 of them. they planned to heist a tank, had someone in a jet taking out the harassing helos, cars on the ground making diversions, they got the tank. but there were lots of other tanks too. which posed a problem.

Often gone in his room and watched it for a bit, does look like a riot. basically the same fun had in Saints Row III but online instead.

I can imagine it being a good laugh if you're on with people you know, but a steaming pile of poo joining a bunch of randoms. I had a go at online and basically spent an hour being griefed. Eventually /ragequit as it was so retarded.

So last night someone put a bounty on me and I survived all day with it

What helped was hiding somewhere and setting bounties on the people chasing me so they all ate each other like rabid dogs

Don't bounties only last for an in-game day? An NPC put one on me today after I finally did Lester's mission. Had to log out as soon as it happened so haven't played with it being on me yet.

If you like playing the stock market then https://gtavstocks.com/ is useful, gives a complete history of every stock.

Make sure you switch between PS3 or Xbox markets.

I seemed to unlock a load of content randomly today now getting merryweather support, armored trucks (blew up two with sticky bombs and got nothing?) gang wars and other stuff.

Found though that doing a mission reset the timer on the bounty.

Got to level 10 on survival solo nearly cleared it. Spent a load on unlocking weapons. Game has given me a lot more to do thankfully. And had no lost levels or money which is good.
