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.

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.

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

Papa MidnightSure thing!03/27/2015 - 9:00pm

Andrew EisenThat would mean either Nintendo's next home console will be out by next year or the next Zelda game is suffering a two year delay. Both extraordinarily unlikely.03/27/2015 - 8:34pm
Matthew Wilsonsome people are thinking we might have a Twilight Princess situation on our hands, what do you guys think?03/27/2015 - 8:01pm
MechaCrashMiyamoto once said "a delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." While this can be taken to excess, it is good that Nintendo remembers it.03/27/2015 - 7:44pm
MaskedPixelanteYay for it not being a buggy mess like AC Unity. Boo that it got delayed til November 2016.03/27/2015 - 7:07pm
Andrew EisenAgreed. Considering we've seen nothing of the game (and those who did see it last E3, said it was super duper early) I would be quite surprised to see it this year.03/27/2015 - 5:28pm
Matthew WilsonI am sure star fox is 2016 too.03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
ZippyDSMleeThe primary reasons I would get a Nintendo system is Zelda and Metroid, Metroid prime collection was beyond words awesome even if 3 was the weakest one. I played TWP on the emulator I have Skyward Sword but like TWP I been putting it off…. LOL03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
Daniel LewisI actually thought star fox would be the game to be delayed,hopefully that isn't as well!03/27/2015 - 5:13pm
Daniel Lewiswoah post shared at the same time matthew,you just beat me!03/27/2015 - 5:11pm
