GTA V 1.09 update now live

 

By Posted 11 Jan 2014, 04:29

The GTA V 1.09 update has gone live within the last few minutes and we just got asked to update to the new patch, although once the improvements were installed it looks like the money is still there online without any change.

This install took place within the last hour, so if you haven’t been on Grand Theft Auto V online within that time you should check and see if patch 1.09 is live for you.

We have had confirmation of the GTA V 1.09 update being live in London, UK and a few locations in the United States. The gamer feedback received so far reveals that money gained through glitches and gifted hasn’t been removed at the time of writing.

This is why a number of players want to know what the GTA V 1.09 patch notes included thanks to the money glitches or millions in the bank through gifts remaining. If you have had money removed after installing the GTA V 1.09 update, then please leave a comment detailing this and what location you are in roughly.

Fallout from GTA V event connection problems

One Product Reviews reader stated, “Yep, I still have billions after installing the GTA V 1.09 update and I see high money levels everywhere. Not sure what they patched, but no one cares unless it fixes the online money problems”. Another added, “I expect the GTA 5 1.09 patch notes to be live within 24 hours and the update just gives Rockstar the ability to make a sweeping change”.

In our opinion, the GTA V 1.09 update has a number of hidden changes that will let Rockstar make a big change to stop the money glitches and cheats when they are ready to make that live. We already saw some preparation towards this update that we documented in an earlier article.

  • joshua

    They took away my money

  • Harry

    I’ve still got all my cash.

  • Goose7

    PS3 ONLY at this time. No XBOX update available as of this post. Highly unusual that they would release such a crucial patch on a weekend, and for only one of the two consoles. Normally, they are released simultaneously and the last 8 updates have all dropped a few minutes after 5:00 GMT on a Tuesday morning.

    There is also no mention of this on the RockStar website’s Newswire, or on their support forum. All 8 previous updates were accompanied by mentions on both sections of the RockStar website.

    Couple all of the above with reports of glitched money not being removed and other oddities, and I am starting to think that this release is a mistake on SONY’s part.

    • BeardedTrevor

      Erm, I’m on XBOX, running live on 1.09 in a session right now…
      Better to keep a closed mouth and look a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt…

    • b stone

      xbox does have the update didnt change n e thing

  • Tom McD

    I’ve still got my money but I can’t join any missions and it puts me in lobbies with minimal other players, this sux I didn’t hack or cheat all I did was collect a bounty. Screw rockstar, I’m throwing the game away, they’ve ruined it

    • Vernon G

      Its because people you are trying to join havent updated

  • Tom McD

  • Tom McD

    It sux

  • Tom McD

    If you still have your money you can’t join most lobbies, it says alert-failed to join session due to incompatible assets. Jerks. My games screwed now, I never hacked just collected a bounty.

    • SpoiledBrat

      K stfu. I just updated it and I cant get online. Oh and.. I HAVENT PLAYED GTAO SINCE OCTOBER 1 BECAUSE IT DOESNT WORK FOR ME FOR SOME REASON! Smh. Spoiled brat.

      • Harry

      • NLferdiNL

        It’s called looking up a fix.

    • Vernon G

      Its because the people you are trying to join havent updated yet

      • Tom McD

        Oh true I Hope that’s it. Weird how it says “alert, can not join because of incompatible assets”

        • Ömïd Hässänï Da Boxer

  • AngryBullbog

    I haven’t noticed anything that is going to make me start playing GTA:O Again my Dominator is still destroyed and Mors Don’t answer and my mechanic is always busy even sent a ticket with Rockstar Support 2 weeks ago still nothing.

    • Jordan Nickel

      just get a new one, there not hard 2 find.

    • Insurance Broker

      It’s destroyed and mors wont answer because you never had insurance on it.

      • AngryBullbog

        It is insured and i’m not sure if you know but it is a bug along with the mechanic always being busy you might want to think before you reply.

  • Shadow

    Is the update out on xbox ?

  • Vernon G

    If it says failed to join due to incompatible assets its because the session you are trying to join havent updated to 1.09

  • Mihyar

    I’ve done the update and my online has been loading for about 20 minutes

  • bob

    They took away my money, banned me to the cheaters pool, took away my cars, and bang my mom at the same time.

    • Dood

    • I_AM_R*

  • Micah

  • Tupac Shakur

    I saw that the Stun Gun is back in stock in the ammu-nation website on your phone and you can see it in the ammu-nation store but you can’t buy it. Weird

  • Jack007

    I have all my money but it says rocks tar cloud servers failed to save and then it said We thank you for your loyalty to the game, as you have earned money successfully we will not be withdrawing your assets

  • danny

    I still have my money a moder gave me even after tge update

  • Markus

    Yep can still buy the hotknife well done rockstar

    • bob

      shut up

  • Jack007

    Maybe it’s only the actual molders who are being banned

  • damn cry babies

    are people really crying and complaining about the money they have? wow thats a damn shame that r* only caters to all you crybabies. i understand dealing with god mode but i dont understand why complain about the money. its a damn game its not life after a few months a new game will come out and those same people that were complaining wont even be playing gta anymore. gta is meant to have fun not wine and complain you say modders and hackers take the fun out of the game its the complainers that take the fun out of the game.

    • Yordy

      They are complaining about the money they have because they don’t want to be mistaken as a hacker/modder because then they would be banned.

      • damn cry babies

        i understand but its better than having to buy r*s bullcrap ingame money. thats the reason they are cracking down because money is being taken out of their greedy pockets. not to mention that we have to grind our ass off for the little money that we do get whether it be from regular bountys or any kind of missions we do. this game was meant for us to have fun but i r* ruined online gameplay and made it all about money.

      • justin chapman

        Very true mate,not fair to be banned or put back to zero for money was just given is it

    • frankenpoop

      Were you dropped at birth?

      • damn cry babies

        im not sure

    • RosaLinda Jimenez

      your bitching more than they are. lol

      • damn cry babies

        seems like you dont know the definition of bitching. im simply speaking my mind

        • RosaLinda Jimenez

          Well aren’t they speaking their minds also about their game experiences? If you had read the post.. They asked for feedback. To let them know if they had lost money and if so, where their location is. After my update I still have my millions. Except my cars are dissapearing. I am in Oregon, U.S.A.

          as for you, “Damn cry baby” learn that nobody cares for your input. “cry babies” don’t ruin the game experience. I can play all day and not get bothered by anyone whatsoever. Sucks for you. lmao

        • damn cry babies

          so your telling me if i got in god mode and kept killing you back to back it wouldnt bother you? and if you say no thats a damn lie. and i also still have my billions and cars after the update. why would it suck it for me people read and agree with what i say because they know its the truth. not sure what the point of telling me where your at but i guess ill do the same. I am in Houston,Tx USA

        • RosaLinda Jimenez

          that’s what a closed friend session, crew session, and a solo session is for. so you don’t have to put up with the A-holes that do that. I can’t stand the little 10+ year olds that do it and laugh. But changing to a new session takes care of that.

        • damn cry babies

          well i also got tired of the god mode players but i dont always want to play in a private session or keep changing sessions for that matter. a few of my online friends were met through random lobbies. im just saying why make us grind so hard in a game that suppose to be fun to us for a little bit ingame money.

        • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

          because you have to work for it like everyone else… save and make more money to get what you want….don’t cheat to the top…GTAO was suppose to be like a RPG

        • Stolenmeat

          Then maybe they should have put a little more work into getting it right the first time before everyone came in and screwed it up.

        • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

          they did It was screwed up day 2 of GTAO release when the give money feature was messed with giving other player millions on release… they are fixing major issues that putting the actual game content on hold, sense the game is based off of money. as they fix a new method to cheat money was at play till player got out of hand with wanting more money.

        • justin chapman

          No need for b stone to call you an ugly bitch,we are all just concerned with the update and what will happen,nobody wants to be put back to 0 do they and start again

        • RosaLinda Jimenez

          and I see nobody agreeing with you on this forum.

        • damn cry babies

          well ive been voted up 9 times so that says different.

        • b stone

          ugly biotch

    • Ömïd Hässänï Da Boxer

      true

    • Ömïd Hässänï Da Boxer

      shut up both of yous

    • mistahrich

      because it takes away from the point of the game u fuckin dum ass

      • damn cry babies

        bet it feels good to run your mouth while sitting in front of a screen. but you know damn well it would be a different story if me and you were face to face

        • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

          irrelevant

        • justin chapman

          I agree mate god mode is pointless and stupid,also think bounties are a bit pointless too,very annoying having people chase me all the time.

    • mistahrich

      ur proble one of the modders and u should get banned

      • damn cry babies

        and yea i was one of the modders but i gave money to those that either wanted or needed it and ill admit i was even in god mode but only to help those that were getting picked on by others in god mode. not once did i take advantage of god mode and picked on anyone not deserving it.

    • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

      money is a issue. cuz god mode isn’t the only bad thing….low rank kids with tanks are to meaning…money is a problem

  • Why Not

    Out for Xbox and Ps3 Now (US)

  • Anthony Rodriguez

    i got a bounty. is that bad?

  • RosaLinda Jimenez

    • sweg

      whats that?

      • Bruno

        the front of cornrows visible underneath the haircut one actually chose

      • justin chapman

        The silly hair cut with rows of hair in lines

  • Stupid update

    Why worry about the money? Everything costs money and it’s hard to get if it wasn’t for these hackers. Makes bounties worth going for.

    • Z505n5i5e

      Because they wont the Kids to pay for GTA Dollars , using ther Pocket Money , thats why they dont want you to have millions … So they get more $ ..simple

  • Jumble

    looks like one of the RP glitches I was getting the hang of was patched.

  • Z5o5n5i5e

    Really Need these HEIST jobs to hit the game , the game as gone stale , think Rockstar should take all OUR in game CASH away. , and give us The Ability to Rob Banks. , and Steal From Jewelry Shops , with the TAKE VALUE , like in the actual story mode , this would. Make. The. Gameplay a better experience for. All .

    • Anthony Matthew Adair

      Rockstar said they are going to make the rat loader available to store in your garage for a limited time and keep it permanently… Don’t be scared of that being deleted

    • D3stroyX

  • Stevie_P

    well I hope that this patch fixes that damn issue of disappearing cars, I’ve lost thousands of $’s Modding cars onlt for them to be vanish into thin air when I place them in a bloody garage.

  • Adam Gold

    Hit up my gt for crew ivts we play missions n dominate free roam we make r own fun

  • OrcmischieF

    money and cars,check. all is good.

  • hfhufefu

    Sorry, but they cannot remove peoples money because they have no way to know what was legit money and hacked money. To do that they would need to reset everyones bank account and doing that would certainly cause an uproar. The patch simply prevents it from happening again. Everyone can keep their money.

    • Julio

      Actually, you’re wrong. R* has access to every transaction your account has made. The money was given out in very large increments, so it’ll be pretty easy to see. Doesn’t take a genius to figure out that a $5b transaction isn’t legit.

      • trhc

        So how they know if it say earned from jobs on mine cuz i killed a bounty with it is how i got mine…

        • justin chapman

          Bounties are only 10.000 more than that is not legit is it that’s how they know mate

  • dredz

    Still have billions here, we rich moma we rich

      • Dave

        • justin chapman

          Do you have to be playing for this to happen or just it happens not on it till tonight or tomorrow

        • justin chapman

          If I loose all the money and go back to level 0 will be done with online play took ages of hard work to get to where I was,to loose all that because was given money I did not ask for is not fair as unfair to you guys too very sorry

      • Dave

        I logged off then back on,,,,, then BAM…

    • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

      lol did u use the dns server …

  • Dave

    Just been told the patch is for doing sweeps to take away your money,,,,,but its only happening this week,,,,,,,, stay offline for this week and theres not much they can do………..after patch everthing seemed normal……..then after 2 hours gameplay……..BAM……they took it………. Stay cool fool….

  • justin chapman

    I have been online this morning with GTA and nothing changed still have millions and my cars.What has changed in this game now?

    • Dave

      Turn it off before its too late

      • justin chapman

        Turn what off mate

        • Dave

          Turn off playing online with gta,,,,you fool…

  • Mr.Great

    I lost my duped Cars

    • justin chapman

      Not surprised at that mate

  • Marty Garcia

    Idn what they had planned but today I was able to sell my high end cars that I didn’t want making some room in my garage.
    Nothing else new. Same crappy cars. I only play in a private server so no clue what’s going on in open servers.
    Touch my money and cars that I got and you’ve lost a fan.

  • Flacko

    they couldn’t f**cking fix the stupid a$$ head tattoo thats stuck on my player and many other peoples players, ridiculous

    • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

      lol true

  • Flacko

    however i am glad i still have my 250billion and cars saved and untouched :)

    • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

      they will get rid of it soon

      • justin chapman

        You cannot know that for sure with every player

        • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

          think of it like this…if stocks come out cut the money down to everyone to $500.000 or a lil less so its fare and equal….and it up to the players how to spend it….now you can be smart and put your money towards stocks and get double back…or you can be a dumbass and spend it all on bs.

        • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

          also for the ppl that got a million legitly, ya they will be mad but if it wasn’t for the asses modding money and giving it to everyone, the game wouldn’t be ruined for everyone… (if one person messes up, it messes up for all) so blame the modders and cheaters to mess it up for all of us.

        • Stolenmeat

          Yeah, makes sense, because THOSE people were morons, punish EVERYONE. If they screw me, I will not start over, I will bin their fing game and go play something else.

  • Surferjames

    Once you log off and log on you will see changes too your bank balance and your levels if you cheated. Money gifted to you will be taken, if you are left with 0 this is because you spent what you earned legitimately during the time you had billions. In regards to levels going to zero this because you either to glitch or DNS cheated.

    • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

      did it happen to you

      • Surferjames

        No but I have seen plenty have it I did not cheat but have been gifted money however I refuse to log in for couple of weeks to see what happens first

        • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

          I told R* that I have 4.9b that I didn’t want that I got off bounties. they told me I can keep it till they can deal with it just don’t share or gift it to anyone.

        • R. Truth

          That’s sweet. You know what that means? Going to largely populated areas and bringing the Doom in the form of an air strike. I would bait and destroy all tanks with impunity.

        • justin chapman

          I was gifted $400.000.000 and been doing races missions etc never cheated BUT have shared money have earned a couple of times like $9-10.000 from money earned am I screwed mate

      • Surferjames

        No it did not but I know that
        This is procedure rockstar are using, if you cheated you can’t complain as the are in full right to strip you of your assets sand no appealing can turn it over. Rockstar are ready for your complaints and already know their rights

        • Goodbye

          And then I will say goodbye GTA5 because it’s already boring. Go ahead and take away everything, it’s cool. I’m out, there’s other games to play.

        • Furkan

          They need to give more money from matches or introduce heists, because “legally” making money is impossible considering how much everything costs…

        • Raion379

          Making money “legally” is not impossible, I have rank 114 character with 10 car carage full of super cars and all are bought with money I made from missions..

  • gta is best

    Mine said it could be taken by other players my money

  • Knowledge Power

    I received over 500m just by standing near my friend, so he definitely hacked nothing do with me…..So would i still lose the cash? I logged in and still have it for now but if i lose my level 115 and the cash then that’s unfair, i did at least get the levels fairly but i still didn’t hack for the cash.

    • Surferjames

      Hello, sadly the cash you did not earn will be taken and you will be left with money you earned yourself, if you earned your levels legally it will not set to zero but if you overspent on money they may do.

      • Knowledge Power

        Well i managed to retain my level (since that was gained fairly) although i did lose my 500m+ even though i earned 12m of it from car sales and it wasn’t given to me.

  • jcgabbitass

    i joined my friends game and suddenly started getting 300k each time i robbed a store i had no idea what he was doing and i wasnt happy because for me it ruined the game also my level increased from 40 to 265 i hope my level and money doesnt get taken off me i didnt do it or know about so i feel that its not my fault.

    • Surferjames

      Your money will be stripped I am afraid and your level will go back down this because you we’re taken part in this for a while, even if these things were gifted to you due to illegal glitches and hacks you can’t keep them.

  • joe Mysterio Simmons

    Glad I still got my 1.5 Trillion. Im willing to share the cash, add ShadowDie- (PS3 Version).

    • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

      if u share your screwed. they will cut your money, cash you did not earn will be taken and you will be left with money you earned yourself, if you earned your levels legally it will not set to zero but if you overspent on money you had it will be zero

  • Thatcher the milksnatcher

    Will this affect money that was given to you or is it just money that was glitches?

    • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

      giving? want you mean by that

      • theJuan

        You can give money to players. Rockstar removed it because many modders were giving away millions.

        • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

          ya I knew that. but I think hes talkin about share cash from free rome jobs…if so normal bounties up to $9000 ,store hold up, and back trucks…. anything given to you or off of bounties over $9000 (no pun intended) will effect.

      • Jamied

        It’s on the rockstar support website

  • chuy

    I say who gives a f#%c if ppl are cheating or using game exploited or glitches they bought the game so if that’s what they wanna do let them do it it’s just a stupid game nothing on there is real… That’s like saying your friend in real life gave u 800milluon and u ho to the government and say hey I didn’t earn this money can you take it all away from me lol boo boo stop crying and play the damn game and block people you don’t wanna play with and stop acting like little babies that got robbed for a lollypop hahahahaha

    • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

      lol ya its a game but its based off of making money…..having so much kills the game for everyone, you may not care but other ppl do. GTAO is suppose to be a different game play style , its not suppose to be like GTA4 nor the single player GTAs when you have money and don’t do nothing with it.

      • lol

        Maybe you don’t do anything with it.
        I personally enjoy standing in one spot on a fivestar until i run out of minigun ammo, buying more, and doing it again.

        Not anyone else’s fault you don’t know how to play for fun in gta.

        • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

          I do. kill the first mofo to attack me. cop chase ya. knowing that I got so much money kills. I like the risks of losing money so I can make it again.

      • WILL a.k.a ILL WILL

        Wrong, Everything about GTAO is the same as Single players minus the main players and missions, the only thing added was being able to purchase garages and apartments, and corny missions.

        GTAO as a whole was a away to get those “cash cards” sold.

  • tOmErHaWk420

    I updated this morning around 2am and still had cash. I don’t know how people do the RP cheat but I’m still only on level 40 and I’ve had the game since day 1. No matter how much money you have you still gotta do races to unlock mods for your cars & missions to level up.

    • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

      yep….the update was a Improved anti-cheat measures and is preparing to fix the GTA$ and RP exploits

  • Jj

    I hope it fixes the extended mags glitch

  • HEARTLESS-1986

    Still stuck with permanent cornrows, $500k plus insured Felzer still permanently destroyed. Am losing interest now. Am a legit level 85 and the above problems came in with patch 1.08. Every patch so far has also either caused freezing or frame rate issues. Pull your fingers out Rockstar

    • WILL a.k.a ILL WILL

      Right about that, while they’re worried about “cheaters” they should be fixing actual issues.

      • righteousratman

        In order to get rid of the cornrows tattoo wear a mask that covers your head and keep it on for a while. Do missions and especially races and eventually you will loose them and just have a bald head. when you go get your haircut do NOT scroll over the cornrows or you will get them again. Hope this helps. My gamer tag is righteousaurus if you need further assistance or anyone wants to get together and cause mayhem across Los Santos. Crew: Zombie Cowboys.

        • HEARTLESS-1986

          Nice one I’ll try that out tomorrow. I was bald to begin with so that suits me. The weird thing with the cornrows is even though my character has them, if I look in any mirror the character is still bald in the reflection. Any tips on getting insured but permanently destroyed cars back?

  • Amestarz

    Still getting an ‘infinite loading’ screen every time I load a save game in the start menu, anybody know how to fix this?

    • John F

      I have that problem as well. It seems to happen when you’re signed into the network. Also, I think you have to quit out of the game first, sign off and then restart the game.

  • WILL a.k.a ILL WILL

    Please stop with the BS about “having all the money kills the game” when it was already dead since Rockstar didn’t give us anywhere near enough stuff to WANT to earn money online, and that will never change, Single player give more incentive to earn money than online ever did with the stock market… ROLMFAO @ Blind Rockstar supporters, stop eating up whatever the “machine” tell you.. GTAO was about finding a way to get gullible players to buy fake cash cards nothing more(which is why Rockstar is pissed that they can’t con us outta real money)… Hackers whether you want to admit it or not, did a good thing showing players that the “cash cards” are a joke and shouldn’t be bought. Rockstar killed GTAO before it was ever released to the public, by not properly testing it, to make sure not only was there enough for players to do, but also the missions were working as intended, also not leaving the door to the cloud server wide open to hackers(yes gullible players, hackers didn;t need to do much to get the information form the cloud, there was no admin pass to the server). Rockstar dropped the ball with GTAV in more ways than one.

    • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

      It was messed up day 2 of GTAO release…and they are fixing major issues that putting the actual game content on hold, sense the game is based off of money.

      • WILL a.k.a ILL WILL

        Nah it’s more than “hackers” that’s keeping game content on hold. I wouldn’t be suprised if they were purposely holding content back to sell more cash cards… Gotta looka t the bigger picture, They will charge us for Story DLC, but GTAO content is all FREE, so how do they pay for that? “cash cards”…

        • ceedoubleyou

          I know what you mean and you’re probably right, but it kinda chaffs my hiney that Rockstar needs to “pay for” the content they promised us when GTA has so far grossed more than a billion and a half dollars.

        • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

          they wont charge us for the actual ingame content…. ya maybe big dlc you got to pay for. every game company is like that, unlike R* they listen when we tell them whats wrong and give out ideas for the game

        • ceedoubleyou

          Oh, I totally don’t mind paying for new content, it’s the changing of the game (like reducing mission payouts or disallowing replays) to seemingly to force us into buying GTA bucks that offends me.

        • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

          ya kinda like BF3 when we work hard to unlock everything for your classes then they come out with those packs to buy…. I fell ya

    • NowHoldOn JustOneSec

      I’ll agree with you on the cash card thing though. They’ve sold millions of copies of the game, take that and multiply it by 70 bucks. They’ve made billions in real cash. What is wrong with just charging us for DLC’s. Rockstar definitely milking the cash cow out of us.

      • golddisk

        The reason they would charge us for dlc is because Activision and call of duty has already proven it can be very successful. Soon enough we will be seeing this with all if not most games.

        Atleast a new gta isn’t released every year with 4 rounds of dlc within a short period…

    • Vito Semion Defronzo

      “Rockstar dropped the ball with GTAV in more ways than one.”

      You went to far. Your points about the cash cards are spot on but that’s not my issue with your post. I’ve had the game for about a month and despite the glitched money, hackers, and god moders the game is STILL extremely entertaining. Grinding for RP with your friends or random players on missions, survival, even freemode is always good fun. GTA 5 is a great game, one of the greatest games in the last decade or so technically and artistically. Furthermore, do you understand how ambitious GTA Online is?? Creating that detailed of an open world with so many different factors, weather, economy, AND players. R* may be guilty of a lot of things but one of them is NOT making crappy games. With this ambitious an undertaking of course there would be missteps along the way, but i guarantee you GTA 6 Online will be even better. Before you only mention R*s failures, get the stick out of your ass, call Pegasus and fly a helicopter over Los Santos to truly admire what R* has achieved.

      • Legit GTA V playa

        Well said sir…that’ll do. ;)

  • Dean

    Why doesn’t Rockstar just give us a option to drop money, like how we can drop guns? But the money can’t be picked up or re-obtained by ourselves. Therefore the people who don’t want the money can do this and then the people who want the money just let them have it. People who ant the money more than likely don’t have the time to play as much to get the money and RP, people with jobs, school etc.

    • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

      if that a suggestion tell R*…..suggest to them burn money just like you make it rain on stripers but more

      • Dean

        They allow us to send money to other users but not drop it? I think its ridiculous also they didn’t even have basic fun things in the game such as the gym, night clubs, pool, bowling, eating out.

        • Evan Greeneyedmonster Sturgis

          they got a lot of ideas like new maps and stuff… if that’s and idea then pitch it to them

    • lol

      There is an option to drop money.

      Create a new character,

      Take all the money out of the bank onto new character

      Delete new character.

      Problem solved.

    This game sucks, sold my copy last week and I don’t regret one bit… Go play minecraft it’s better for you!

    • Legit GTA V playa

      U compared this game to Minecraft? LOL! Not even close dood…

        Not comparing it at all. As far as fun factor goes minecraft wins hands down!

        • Michael Basciano

          Willing to bet you’re just someone who got banned and is upset..this seems to always happen with people who glitch on games and get banned then come back to talk about how “bad the game is”. It’s like the forum posters on the Battlelog forums who get perma-banned for talking trash in the forums on Battlefield then wanna claim the game is garbage. Comparing an MS-DOS game to possibly one of the highest selling games in video game history?

        • Rock Harper

          Actually it’s the opposite of that the reason I quit playing was the fact that everyone else was.

        • Michael Basciano

          Well that’s just a really silly opinion.

        • Legit GTA V playa

          Well I guess it’s just personal preference then…honestly I guess if someone likes LEGOS, building & simple combat with last decade graphics then yah Minecraft away ;-D but u can’t say GTA V sucked when it took the previous gen systems & pushed them to the max; showing gamers what a real-life scaled world can look like above and below like never before. I could give 2 dicks about R*star…it’s just a face of the thousands of amazing designers & creators who really put this thing together. I believe many don’t realize what it really takes to create AND maintain a game of such epic proportions. #IJS

    • joanna

      and you’re still here, why?

      • Rock Harper

        I was hoping they might of added heists…

  • NowHoldOn JustOneSec

    Here’s the problem. Although Rockstar is sweeping money from peoples account, they have no way to know which money is legit or not. If i spent 40 dollars in real cash for PSN/GTA cash to get millions and wanted to give a friend of mine a couple million….well my friend that is LEGIT, and what if that friend wanted to loan one of his friends100,000 of that million that I gave him that I bought legitimately (This can go on and on). Sure a million dollar transaction may look fishy, but how are they to know that the million wasn’t originally legit in the first place. In that case they would be taking away money that i bought legally and wanted to loan to someone else. Thats set up for a class action law suit. So they are really setting themselves up for having to refund people’s money they used to buy GTA cash. Sure they are right, there was a lot of modded money, but there was also a lot of people that payed for GTA cash legitimately and loaned it to their friends. They are making this way to difficult, the best thing to do would be to fix the money glitches, fix the RP glitches, leave the accounts alone.

    • WILL a.k.a ILL WILL

      but you can’t share cash card money anyways, nor give a large sum of money…

      • NowHoldOn JustOneSec

        You could before, you cant now. Unless they have some specific way to identify modded money itself, without looking at transactions, then its going to be very difficult

    • Drew

      Do keep in mind whilst they are not Big Brother, (alot of people with hostile attitudes towards Rock*!) they Are the keeper of the servers and data. “Legit money” is obvious through your career stats..i.e Player with a 10 car apartment yet with only 9k ever made in Jobs/Chops, however 80 million in “Shared”. 1.09 is probably, IMO, coding to set off those alarm bells (rank 12 driving an Adder *cough*) for whatever Rockstar’s planning

      • NowHoldOn JustOneSec

        True, but you cant assume anything. That would be Rockstar assuming that the 80 million shared is not legit. If they are assuming then, well thats bad business. And if someone really loaned them 80 million legit dollars, there will be some angry people. Now if you are talking about the guy that has 200 trillion dollars and has shared billions, yea he’s toast. But just ripping money out of accounts with people with only a billion or two, that could cause a few issues

        • TheBearerOfTruthiness

          You are a complete and utter moron. ROCKSTAR OWNS AND RUNS THE SERVERS, AND ALL THE DAT THEREIN. They will absolutely be able to track which money s left, and which is not.

          As for the people who bought in game money with real cash, I suggest that you read your EULA/ToS. You have no rights to anything in the game, it’s all property of Rockstar. This is standard practice, and has been for some time in online gaming. An example…you purchase in game money, and then buy an expensive vehicle. If Rockstar removes that vehicle, you get NOTHING back. This situation is no different.

  • Brick Tamland

    I don’t know what we’re yelling about. Loud noises! I read somewhere that their periods attract bears. Bears can smell the menstration.

  • ceedoubleyou

    My question is, if R* is getting rid of all the extra millions people gained illegally (even though I don’t know why it should surprise them that a game about being a criminal inspires people to break the rules), does that mean they are also getting rid of the stuff people bought with the illegally gained money?

    If not, I say it’s SPENDING SPREE time, folks!

    (Personally, I wouldn’t care if they got rid of the illegal money if they would just introduce a stock market that actually works AND a big stakes casino. We need some sort of chance to make money in this game.)

  • spursfan.2150

    I think the leveling and god mode are much bigger issues than the money. Like people said earlier taking away money is going to screw alot of people over. Take away the high levels of players who clearly didn’t earn it. And make the tanks a little easier to destroy. And actually punish people for destroying vehicles like everyone else that doesn’t cheat gets punished. And I agree with what someone said earlier about them holding back dc like heist. The game has been out long enough add things that are actually fun besides repetitive jobs.

    • lol

      God mode is only an issue if you still haven’t figured out why god-moders run around with baseball bats attacking other god-moders.

      • spursfan.2150

        Honestly you can just change lobbies with the god mode. My point is they have other issues they can fix, but they are more worried about their money rather then making the game better for people playing.

      • spursfan.2150

        Honestly you can just change lobbies if God mode bothers you. But my point is rock star has a lot of things they can fix and improve on but they are more worried about their money rather then making the game better for the people playing.

  • Barry Dingle

    I am one of the people who played on a DNS server. I didn’t know I’d get the RP (I didn’t want to level up at all; I was looking for money), and now that I have it, I have a lot more fun in the game, not having to worry about silly ways of losing money. However, my unreasonably high level is annoying because I can no longer level up realistically. I’ve been expecting to get online one day and see my money gone, but I still haven’t. It would be miraculous to me if they put my level to the level I actually played to (I think it was 85) and left the money. If they took the money I stole/was given by other cheaters, though, I obviously could not complain. The game obviously had some massive holes in it, but I’m not mathematically capable of understand what they were. I put in a DNS code in my Network Settings and had access to billions. This whole situation is dumb because it was open to players who are literally not even capable of being hackers. But, in conclusion, I still have my money, and I don’t really think I deserve to lose it.

  • Frodo

    You’ll get banned if you continue leaving job lobbies?!?!? Are you kidding me Rockstar?!? I just got killed by a cop when I wasn’t even wanted!!! Of course I left that bull! R* fix what’s IMPORTANT! It’s irritating that you had so long to fix everything wrong with the game and you did nothing. Where’s the commitment? Just pathetic.

  • mehhh

    still wont fix the blurred tattoo problem -.-

  • Nick Woodhead

    To the publisher of this article. A friend of mine got put in the cheaters lobby due to claiming a 10 billion dollar bounty and sharing it between the lobby. He only did it because he already had over 35 billion from gifting and crap. When he called Rockstar and explained everything they gave him a temporary character and stuck a 72 hour hold on his main one. When he asked about the money Rockstar told him that there is no way for them to remove the money from 1 person. The only way they can remove money is by doing a mass reset of all players. Now seeing as Rockstar is already facing charges pending on stealing someones money in game that they had bought with real money, Rockstar is not going to risk wiping everyone. I have read from a few buddies of mine who work for other companies that Rockstar is discussing doing a mass reset of all players back down to a level below 120 because of how many people have hacked levels and money. They will then be wiping everyones money down to a certain amount and those who had purchased the Shark Cards can call in with confirmation numbers and get all their money back. But like I tell everyone this is all hear say, until Rockstar grows a pair and speaks up to its commmunity with more than 1 liners, everyone is in the dark.

    • surferjames

      sorry nick but rockstar are not pending any charges for taking money from somebody account….if the money has gone they need prove they bought it and then rockstar will give this back.

  • Malik225

    Typical, R* wants you to pay 50 US dollars for 2.5 million in GTA cash? 50 bucks? really? I could basically buy another PS3 game for 50 bucks. Get into a few lobbies with a couple A*holes and you will spend 2.5 mill in a week just trying to defend yourself. What to do then? Pay another 50 dollars for more cash? Not me.

    • Malik225

      Cant believe people are complaining about being given money. It definitely does not ruin game. Money unlocks NOTHING. God mod/Level-up-glitches/invisible-glitches ruin the game.

      • Tyler Heileman

        Earning money to buy stuff is the WHOLE POINT – take that away and there is no reason to play, nothing to work toward

        • Malik225

          So you are saying that a level 10 person with 100 mill can get anything they want on the game? Wrong. If you don’t level up 80% of that stuff you cant purchase anyway. All you can maybe do is get an apartment and some cars that you cant trick out because you are not on a high enough level.

        • Tyler Heileman

          I’m saying you could buy any car you want, any apartment you want, and money no longer has any value in the game – your right you have to level up to get stuff, so I suppose I shouldn’t say making money is the WHOLE point, but its at least half the point – also, I personally am level 100, someone gave me around 100 mil against my will – for me, that has taken away the ONLY thing I had left to play for

        • Gary Gooner Harper

          you must have no imagination if money is the only thing keeping you no the game

        • Tyler Heileman

          There is a reward system for a reason – its not that there isn’t stuff to do, its that there is nothing to gain, which gets old very quickly

      • Gary Gooner Harper

        i found that after i got a massive bounty off someones head and i got all that money i started to enjoy the game not having ppl blowing up my personal cars all the time id just get a rand0m car off the street do it up then burn around killing ppl not having to worry about my money ..It is money that has ruined GTA online and ppl with god mode and ppl that glitch into walls also there should be an option to turn off the bloody police and they should get rid of bad sport pool and keep the cheater pool Free mode should be free to do what you want with in reason and there should be a time line on dlc so we no what we are getting and when…..

  • Nel

    you know what id like to see in gta v online? id like to see R* adding animals or the stock market, or actual different apartments or at least you being able to paint/decorate your apartment. id like them to add more things to do and more places to explore with friends. who cares if someone wants a crap ton of money? im starting to get bored of this game because i can only do the same things over and over. if someone is in god mode just find a different lobby. or go play by yourself if you cant handle ppl giving you free money. all this crap is just a big waste of time. R* should focus on making the game more fun for ppl instead of punishing ppl for giving themselves or others free money.

    • Tyler Heileman

      Obviously you haven’t been given a bunch of money – someone gave me 100. Mil, and it ruins the entire point of the game, why even play if you own everything? I don’t care if other people cheat, but they gave me money against my will, and it needs to be removed… I’m all for new content, but they certainly need to fix this money issue

      • Malik225

        I was given a load of money, over a billion unwillingly. Im only level 41, still most of the clothes, nice guns, things to fix up on cars, tanks etc,airplanes, boats, I cant purchase because Im not on a high enough level. There are still missions I cant start alone because I haven’t reached a certain level. So to say it ruins the ENTIRE point of the game, I cant agree with you.

  • Bro usury

    I think new fighting styles would be pretty cool. Like in Gta San Andreas there was a boxing fighting style and karate fighting style. It would be awesome! Ooohhh wait…R* doesn’t care…right…

  • Beauregard John Murphey

    the only change i have noticed is my single player freezes when i try to start or load any single player game. including new games, i cant get the 70 gold medals now. no trophy for me

  • Troy W Suza

    Gta V needs poker to play in your apartments no limit Texas hold ‘em. Bowling, baseball, basketball, football, more games to play with friends

  • Your pal, Jesus

    The easiest solution for R* is to reset everybody, certainly in terms of cash, and let people who have invested in the cards reclaim whatever they have lost. I expect they will then sweep GTA Online and ban anyone who is at a ridiculous level compared to jobs completed etc.

    The problem of taking this approach is that they risk killing the game. I found it pretty boring until someone gave me $4 billion one day and I could finally afford the best apartment, the best cars etc. I managed to get rid of most of the $4 billion in a cash dump on a DNS server (yes, I was the one person who went on a DNS to LOSE money) and brought my balance down to $4 million, which I think is about right for a level 108 character. Missions that were pretty boring before become a lot more fun if you can do them in the Buzzard or a Tank. Having experienced that, if my character was reset then I doubt I’d go back and go through the grind of getting to level 100 again, and it is a grind. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels like that and there are many people out there with a much higher level and bank balance than me.

    I would accept any ban that comes my way, just like I’ll accept losing anything I bought with money I was given. The more I play it the more it seems like an opportunity for R* to follow Activision and wring as much out of their customers as they can. The value of the credit cards you can buy are woeful when you look at the price of ammo, cars and upgrades in GTA Online. When the heists eventually become available I’ll be amazed if any reward you with more than $150k, some rumours have the totals as low as $80k. I’ll pay for DLC that expands the single player game, or I would have done if one of R*’s patches hadn’t ruined my game, but I won’t pay them money so my little imaginary character can pay them again to wear nice clothes and drive a nice car. I’d be interested to find out how many credit cards have been sold, I bet it’s somewhere in the range of a shitload, sadly.

    I killed a guy with a bounty on him, he had 225 mil on him as the bounty, will anything happen?

  • Juneerawr

    I’m getting sick and tired when the payment after a job isn’t equal. Wtf?!?! How does someone get paid more than me when 1) The player wasn’t host 2)The player died 3)I had more kills 4)I was a higher rank 5)I was the ONLY one alive! No logic in R* whatsoever.

    I wish everyone would realize that this whole situation is not about making the game balanced and better for everyone. It’s about R* being able to cash in on their cash cards. God does not reward Greed. And guess what? Check youtube, there are already new DNS codes/hacks/ways to avoid being bann after the1.09 patch. A lesson to be learned by R*.

    I HATE it when I have a suppressor equipped, even in the middle of nowhere or the mountains, I still get a wanted! I’m in the MOUNTAINS! Do the police have spy birds something?!? “Los Santos police” are C.I.A agents apparently. Oh, and they also have some new aged transportation device because they just “POP” out of nowhere. Oh R*

    • ceedoubleyou

      Hee! Yeah, I hate that. I took all the suppressors off my guns because it didn’t seem to be giving me any advantage and I kinda like the sound the un-silencered guns make.

    I was ready to quit GTA until I was gifted some money. I don’t have billions but millions. Ammo was too expensive. Take my money and give everyone one million and the money they earned. Everyone happy with that?
