GTA V money glitch ban explanation

As we told you earlier on this week, Rockstar has now released the GTA V 1.08 update. Rockstar had initially prevented users from exploiting a glitch to make unlimited cash, but it appears that an even bigger problem has emerged due to those with modded consoles.

As a result, a GTA V 1.08 money glitch is still possible in the game – with modded users setting up online lobbies, and then distributing this ‘dirty’ money with those that join the lobby, no questions asked.

You only need to head to our previous article here, to see the sheer amount of GTA V players on PS3 and Xbox 360 who are keen on gaining easy GTA V money in this way. It’s a difficult situation and has obviously divided the GTA V community somewhat.

Rockstar has made it hard to earn money legitimately, so players have become desperate. Getting money from these modded lobbies though is against Rockstar’s policy as you may have guessed, and we’ve now started to see the developer take action.

We have noticed that Rockstar has issued a statement on their support website, specifically explaining their reasons for banning users which they have spotted using this new method to make money in the game.

To pick out one quote from their website:

“To keep the gameplay environment as fair as possible for legitimate players, we routinely do sweeps to separate out cheaters and modders, and to reverse any illegitimate transactions.”

Consider that a warning we think. While we can understand that it is now becoming very difficult to make money in the game, getting free money from a modded user is a risky business.

Let us know what you think of this. Has Rockstar banned your account already from GTA Online as a result of joining these modded lobbies?

Is your ban a permanent or temporary one?
