GTA 5 Players Stole GTA$ Money Worth Millions in Real Life

By   /   Dec 20, 2013

When you get a game with millions of users, it obviously means that there will be some players who will exploit the system.

Same is the case with one the most acclaimed game of the year, GTA 5. Rockstar has confirmed that GTA 5 cheaters have managed to steal trillions of in-game GTA$ which would cost millions in real life.

Okay let’s allow that to sink in. Does it mean cheaters playing a game have been sitting on a chance at becoming millionaires?

As expected, the developers are there to ensure matters like these are taken care of. Rockstar has taken action against the embezzlers and sent them to a cheater’s pool.

A cheater’s pool is basically a session that puts cheating players against other cheaters and forces them to wear dunce cap. I wonder if they should have been banned outright.

If you go and have a look at the game’s richest players’ charts, you will see people amassing trillions of GTA$. A certain player “epiicmoddingtobi” is worth more than $1 trillion ($1,109,674,917,679).

Now we know that one million GTA$ is purchasable for £5. This means that the dude is sitting on £12 million worth of in-game money.

“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,” said a Rockstar representative.

“These sweeps are based on in-game automated detection, examination of suspicious gameplay statistics, and also manually-reviewed evidence submitted by the Community.”
