When Rockstar announced that Grand Theft Auto Online was going to be a game separate from GTA V and will live on past the lifespan of the fifth game, many expected there to be some kind of catch.

This week the catch has been revealed by Rockstar themselves after speculation and rumors of purchasable in-game gift cards spread the internet.

It has been revealed that you will be able to purchase in game currency cards for Grand Theft Auto Online with real cash straight from your wallet.

The cards will range from $100,000 to $1,250,000 with various valued cards in between. The cheapest $100,000 card will cost £1.99 (or ~$3.20) and the $1,250,000 card will cost £13.99 ( ~$22.40)

Interestingly, the money system will work differently to GTA V in GTA Online. For example, you’ll be able to pick up a pricy car for $150,000 instead of $1 million, and the most expensive property only costs $400,000.

Guns and car modifications will end up costing more though, and these will be the items most players will aspire towards.

GTA Online will be available to play by anyone with a copy of GTA V on either PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 on October 1st for free.
