So this must mean you can transfer money to other players with your phone right? I'm not sure what else it could be referring to...

Spreading money after jobs is going to cause so many fights. What's to stop someone from taking 95% of the cash and the switching to passive mode so his friend can't kill him and get a rightful share?

In Online, I'm going to be Lone Wolf McQuade... Can't trust any motherfucker!

I wonder if that weapon is mounted to the bed like a technical. If it is, that's awesome!

Awesome

They must have thought about this issue, but generally I agree. Either there will be a lot of people being screwed over and seeking revenge/refusing to work with the greedy screwers again, or people who aren't the leader will join in on a job and not put much effort in because they know they'll get very little, if anything.

Maybe there's a minimum amount you have to share, like 5% or so, that way you at least know you'll get something when you're not the leader. Interesting to see how it plays out anyway.

Most likely, switching between passive and active mode won't be an instantaneous thing. DC Universe Online had a similar set up where there was a bit of time to wait for it to change, so you couldn't just attack someone and not suffer reprisals. It's also possible that doing a joint mission like that will put a block on that.

I'm still curious about how persistence will work in the game, specifically when it comes to property. Can everyone buy the same location and the game just generates a different version of the interior(but with somehow the same view showing an active version of the world outside) for each player? And if so, won't that create a bit of a problem with your home being a safe place if for instance, you and an online rival who has a bounty on you both live there? You're going to run into each other, one would assume. Are players always locked onto the same version of Los Santos with the same people every time they log on?
