Ban Hammer Coming for Red Dead Redemption Cheaters Next Week

August 20, 2010 -

Players fond of using hacked save games to gain benefits in multiplayer probably feel like cattle rustlers in the sights of Matt Dillon from Gun Smoke today. Rockstar is getting ready to ban as many accounts as it has to to clean up this “Wild West” of a multiplayer community, but it wants to give players a chance to repent by deleting those hacked save games.

There are other negatives to getting banned besides not being able to play the game online; banned accounts will also be removed from leaderboards, but those smart enough to erase those "bad save files" will still get to keep their achievements and trophies, pre-order items and cheats earned through the "Social Club" after creating a new save game and logging in.

"Next week, starting on Tuesday, August 24th – we will be swiftly and indefinitely banishing from the world of 'Red Dead Redemption' multiplayer all Gamertags and PSN IDs we’ve detected with hacked game saves," a company representative wrote on the Rockstar Games blog. "Such cheating is a clear violation of our code of conduct, and punishable at our sole discretion."

The message is pretty clear: clean your act up or be prepared to face the consequences, I guess.

oh good, cheaters have no place in multiplayer game.

Let´s hope that they don´t start to ban players who don´t use cheats by accident.

I've seen some of these cheats and most of them can't be used by accident. Just to be clear, the ban hammer won't swing just from the entered in cheats in single player.

Kind of glad that they will clear off all the 0 second scores on Social Club though.

The cheaters have it coming to them.

mthielThis reminds me of schools a few years ago who forbade their students from having MySpace accounts. I don't mean blocking MySpace from the school, I mean banning the kids from having accounts)03/29/2015 - 5:12pm
Constermthiel, that is fucked up. Threatening to call social services on parents if you find out they let their kids play the wrong kind of video games is a suicidal move for schools.03/29/2015 - 5:07pm

Matthew Wilson@mask that tweet says zeldu wiiu will be missing, it says nothing about some kind of remaster.03/29/2015 - 4:01pm
MaskedPixelanteI highly doubt Zelda will be missing from E3. They've got something lined up, next year is the 30th anniversary.03/29/2015 - 3:59pm

InfophileSony's customer service has always been crap, but up till now it's been manageable crap. A few cases of people having to pay for being hacked at worst, the Other OS removal... This one is going to be much worse for them.03/28/2015 - 1:34pm
WymorenceWhen did Sony start doing the ransomware stuff...? other than the old BMG rootkit stuff that is.03/28/2015 - 12:45pm
