    New money glitch causes R* to use the BanHammer

    I'm more than sure people know about this by now, but for those who don't, here you go:

    Bugs in new video games are certainly to be expected, but when the online component is affected, even a small bug can ruin the experience for everyone. That might explain the heavy-handed approach Rockstar is said to be taking with a new GTA Onlineglitch.

    With a little setup, Xbox players can sell the same vehicle as many times as they like, becoming GTA billionaires overnight. Just like with real crime, this activity is not without risks. Players who take advantage of the bug risk a ban from the online version of the game.

    It’s unlikely that anyone using this particular exploit was happening upon it by accident. In order to trick the game into spawning the infinitely salable vehicle, you need to get a vehicle that is valued as close to $50,000 as possible, which is the cut-off for what the bugged shop, Los Santos Customs will buy. The Pegassi motorcycle is a good option, for example.

    This bug only happens in invite-only online games, so after getting the bike, you have to jump into single player and start an invite-only online game.
    Here's a tutorial from Youtube:

    Was it necessary to post the tutorial video for something that will get us banned?

    Not really. Although they said people on the X-Box are using it and are getting banned, PS3 players are doing the same thing. I know at least 6 people that are using this glitch; so it's only a matter of time before PSN players get the hammer as well.

    way over the top banning people. I fail to see how this exploit has any real advantages

    I don't see the point in doing the money cheat, it's not as if money's hard to get in the game... what with RockStar giving people $500,000 soon anyways.

    I don't see why they would ban someone though. It's a glitch, so it's their fault, people will exploit what ever they can no matter what. Modding or hacking I can understand, but not a glitch. They can take money away, and progress I guess that would be understandable, but not banning someone entirely.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    I think they are threatening to ban them because it wrecks the longterm playability online for future sales.

    I'll say it again though. I doubt they banned anyone. It's just an empty threat.
