GTA Online’s launch has been incredibly troubled, to the extent that Rockstar is literally offering half a million in game dollars to every player who suffered through it. It was also, obviously, plagued by glitches and bugs, such as the infamous motorcycle bug that allowed players to literally earn billions of dollars in a single day, rendering the entire in game economy useless.

Well… not if Microsoft has anything to say about it. Although this comes from the GTA forums (so take it with a pinch of salt, as you should with all forum posts), apparently Microsoft has been banning any and all Xbox Live users who tried to exploit the glitch. Rockstar allegedly issued a formal statement (found in that same thread):

“We’re aware of the issue and until we can fix it, we’ll ban anyone with a history of abusing this design flaw. It will ruin others’ enjoyment by disbalancing the economy that’s vital to the Online experience. We’re in discussion with Microsoft, too, to escalate these bans from online privileges to user accounts as a statement against these antics. We don’t expect any outrage from the law-abiding playerbase who haven’t devalued others’ items and hard-work with an exploit – these the customers we are proud to help.”

Damn, they aren’t messing.

Do you think a ban is too harsh?
