Rockstar has launched the first wave of "Rockstar Verified" jobs -- player-designed missions -- for GTA Online, the online mode for Grand Theft Auto V.

Rockstar putting its seal of approval on user-created content is a significant step for user-gen content in triple-A console titles -- and may herald gains in acceptance of these tools and modes by both players and developers.

As of its December 10 patch, the game contains a beta version of tools for players to create their own jobs across two game types: deathmatch and racing. Rockstar has now chosen and will distribute the first wave of player-created curated jobs across both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

In its blog post announcing the jobs, Rockstar invites players who have created their own to share them in the comments for potential inclusion in a future Rockstar Verified jobs update -- and promises that "many, many more Rockstar Verified Jobs" are due in the future.

You can read about the first jobs selected at Rockstar's site.
