There's no way 60+ million just for the penthouse, that's absurd even with R*'s pricing.
I bet it's the art that pushes the prices up! *I hope :wink:


It's interesting that you can have a friend over, share wardrobe etc I wonder if they can spawn automatically in your suite?

I like the idea that anyone who is a VIP shares the roof complex. Though I wonder if we have to stay in passive mode to avoid getting sniped? LOL I bet it will turn into a freemode death match. Casino Roof vs Everything! :biggrin:

Assuming we are moving into very expensive model of the July and December updates now until GTA 6. Be nice if the upper half of the map will be used more! Though I expect Mansion, Police, Tuners, Navy DLC's to come.

Mile High DLC could be running a hotel as a cover perhaps? They could base it on the Wilshire Grand Center in LA.

True, but remember, that is with buying the most expensive "upgrades". Someone could probably buy all the cheapest options and only spend $10M or so.

Speaking of which, I'm eager to see just how much customization there is and I hope to hell it's not all retarded **** aimed at 10y/o kids who shouldn't be playing the game anyways, but since they are the ones most likely buying Shark Cards (well, probably their parents), R* is catering to their f'd up sense of style. Or at least that's how "I" feel.

I suspect the art does dramatically increase costs, which would not be surprising in the least.

I too wonder about the rooftop infinity pool and lounge area. I suspect it'll be a death trap if you aren't in passive, but trying to do anything out of passive tends to result in grinders coming for you.

Yes, we need DLC that allows us to store and mod emergency vehicles and more rides to customize at Benny's. Not too many seem to be asking for it, but I want trucks/SUVs with proper customization abilities. I mean where are the lift kits for off-road vehicles?! And why can't we change rim/tire sizes yet? Even some of the off-road vehicles in the game have too small of rims/tires stock already and changing them makes them smaller if anything.

Oh well, guess I'm just in the minority and I have to live with nothing but supercars with excessively large wings and Cholo rims(barf).

TheMoneyLobby, since you can't publicly display it, there is nothing stopping you from showing me an image or two through pm. I think I've been around here long enough to be considered a trusted member and, I guarantee you that I will not share it.

There's so many holes it what you claim to have found though, or rather how you're presenting it. We know already that we are not going to own the casino, so, why would we ever need to pay 150m to own it? It's owned by another entitity the likes of gay Tony or whoever owns the stadium, I can't remember right now. Your figure, seems to be that of the value of everything added together and nothing has to be purchased. Putting prices like that on things only serve to panic the people that can't afford it and that is an unfair thing to do.

150m is absurd. They are not going to charge that, especially when it is being given away free with a linked twitch prime account. What you are doing is reading listings and misinterpreting it like so many people on youtube have done before you. Not once had a single item come close to 150m but yet you seem to believe that this price is correct? It's also not the first time rockstar have left misleading details in pre update files to catch those like yourself out.

For the record though, it's not just sharing images that gets people in trouble, it's sharing any information contained. So, just watch yourself before you make yourself a martyr trying to be that cool inside knowledge guy that everyone on YouTube either wanted to or became.

If you cannot back up what you're saying with pure fact then stop saying it. It has long been the standard process here to not allow leaks without proof so perhaps you should make yourself aware of that.

Excuse me, but I believe he said there are 5 sections of the penthouse we can upgrade, spending upwards of $11M each. The that's $55M excluding the buy-in of the penthouse property, which is being given away for free to those linking their accounts. It may be $5M for the Penthouse if purchased, so around $60M for the penthouse customized. Then we can expect to fork out upwards of $200M on all the other content coming out on the 23rd and future drip feed content.

Cars can be won and freely obtained by completing missions, but if purchased, we can be assured it be Millions.

There are also ridiculously priced clothing, accessories, tattoos, weapons, hair styles, etc. etc.

And like with previous DLC content claims, it may be all items purchased can top $200+M, but you often can't purchase everything, for instance, property upgrades often have multiple options in which you can only buy one for each category.

Just saying.

I'm not arguing that everything combined could maybe approach the 150 mark but the way this is being put across is that you will need major money to even enjoy the update and that is incorrect. It also has happened every single time an update has come.

Why would anyone want to know the total value of every single item? No one does. Not even the likes of myself who could buy this supposed 150m update 150 times and still have room to spare.

The hype is my problem, hyping users up for a negative reason which is all this money talk ever does. It is not necessary but yet every time someone has to come along, claim to be the inside man, preparing the world for something that never comes whilst attempting to rub their superiority in the faces of those they claim to help.

The 'I'm playing it early right now' attitude, who does that ever help? I've seen it all here and I can tell you this much anyone claiming to know everything but unable to prove anything is always incorrect in the long run.

Agreed.

I've never once wanted all that an update included. Out of boredom and an abundance of cash, I bought every car I can in the game and have every vehicle between my two characters on my account.

Stupidly, I partook in the Lester money glitch to get refunded for locating a plane and while I made a few million off it, R* took ALL my money. Wasn't a big deal to me at the time, had nothing left to buy I wanted and had every vehicle.

Now I'm back up to just shy of what is claimed to be needed to buy everything, which I won't want anyways, not to mention some will surely be drip fed to us over time.

But yeah, a guy (or girl) doesn't need to have tens of millions every time an update drops in order to enjoy it, though it helps.

I honestly felt $50M would be enough to buy what I'd want with the update and still have plenty left over for drip feed content.

We will see in just a few days.

If nobody wanted to know anything; then I dont think people like mrbossftw would make money the way they are doing. I would like to know, that is also why im in a topic like this instead of being suprised in a negative manner when the update actually launches.

150 mil is not a big number in my opinion, and as you are saying yourself; you have that times 150...

the arena wars update could easily cost you 80 mil the first day when curious and interested; then some clothing stuff and other extras could bring you even to 150 from this last update. I believe someone calculated that if you bought all the vehicles and upgraded them it will cost 250mill. 150 mill cant be such a hype is it? not after so many years and after the hype rockstar creates with their trailer + website obviously blowing it up bigger than anyone here.

every update has basic features and exclusive features; and I think the regular people on this forum are not the ones sticking to the basics; but that is my opinion. I dont see much hype, just realistic stuff and before we had leaks from tezfun so who knows.

I think he typed it a bit unlucky so others interpret it as you NEED much cash, but not intented to say eactly that as rockstar never ever did that.

You're probably right about the miswording. I totally understand how things can cost massive amounts when all added together but that needs to be communicated clearly. The GTA community has always been volitile and has always had those who claim to have inside knowledge but are unwilling to actually prove this. My gripe is more with that than anything else. Take two aren't about to go after a single relatively unknown person on a single forum. Hiding behind that is unacceptable. Besides this, if you were to be that good at getting through backdoors, surely you will have the ability to shield who you are and where you are connecting from.

Anyways, we're well off topic. My apologies, let's call it a day. It seems we're all going to misunderstand each other if we continue.

it happens all the time with linear words, and I sometimes make the same mistakes in english; but I also understand you and hiding is not a manly thing to do :wink:

Right then, so about the content lol I'm going to predict, going off of what other people have said and the long dry period between this and Arena Wars, that this update will have a ton of cars in it. Meaning the drip feed is going to be long; probably all the way to December and whatever new Winter update we see come out around that time.

I'm hoping the vehicles they showed off in the trailer are only a taste of the variety that will be available because I was really hoping/expecting there to be plenty of luxury and classic vehicles to be added here to go with the theme. The expansiveness of the Penthouses has also gotten me thinking about mansions again and how those could now be implemented in a different future DLC and what theme they could go with. I've got a feeling we're in the last year or two of content for this game and if this is the level of update we're getting now, it can only get better from here on out.

I'd love some deluxe paint jobs (glow in the dark, light up, diamond encrusted, something like that), new horns, other car options to be available.

More so than anything else though, I hope those arcade games are playable (which they sound like they are) and fun. Don't Cross the Line is neat, but I want more stuff like that to do online with friends.

There are definitely some new liveries as were shown on some of the cars in the trailer so some more things along those lines, at least in terms of liveries is definitely possible. New car customization options and whatnot though is a little bit less plausible here I feel but that, of course, doesn't mean it can't come in some future update. Such as a Midnight Club themed DLC which is something we've still yet to see and has been highly requested in the community.

In regard to the arcade games though, those will definitely be playable and from what I've seen there are at least one or two new minigames that they'll be introducing through those machines. Definitely cool to see them add in new things like this but I'm personally wondering what exactly we'll be able to watch in our penthouse theater. They mentioned Meltdown of course and there's always the in-game TV shows but what other media do they have that could be played here? I'm all for luxury spaces and what that entails but I feel like this section of the penthouse will be highly underutilized unless they do something special with it that just hasn't been revealed.

I'd love an update like that. I'm always optimistic for new horns at a bare minimum when it comes to big updates. Last update we got the air horns, so maybe we'll get a jackpot noise or something this time.

Completely agree. The "Media Room" seems like such a waste right now, especially since the big talking point they seem to have on the Diamond Casino site is that you can play Don't Cross the Line on a big screen.

That Navy DLC Is what I have been waiting for. The flight school and hangar were both really light updates. And with Top Gun 2 coming in 2020, its a perfect chance for them to release something bigger. I am praying for an aircraft carrier and some more jets, and an update to CEO/MC to include squadrons.

They have to have something that hasn't been released yet otherwise there wouldn't be a surprise and sense of urgency to go buy and try it out. They can't tell us everything otherwise it spoils their earnings from people rushing to get shark cards to afford all the extra stuff they never announced.

The diamond encrusted paint job, would it cost $250K? If they release something like that I hope they let me put it on my p996 lazer :wink:

They created the Rockstar Editor but never did anything with the millions of clips created by players, outside of 1 or 2 contests for best video. Why not feature weekly creations by players in the media room, like a youtube style feed?

You know, given the whole Twitch Prime account linkage to get a free penthouse, I could see the media room being able to be used to view any content on Twitch.

Media Room
Never again will you have to suppress your gag reflex as you rub shoulders with the general public in the cinema. In addition, you’ll be free to enjoy Don’t Cross the Line on the big screen with friends.

Yes, the only thing confirmed is being able to play cross the line and I believe another game on it, but that seems a waste. I hope there's more to it than that, I was just optimistically speculating, given the whole twitch prime linkage with our R* social club accounts. Just seems like there my be more to it than what we see on the surface.

Just a couple more days and all shall be revealed.
