Rockstar Games, as originally promised, is going to begin banning players using hacked save states in their hit game Red Dead Redemption. While the original announcement came last week, the banning procedures will begin tomorrow. So, join just after the jump to see what exactly needs to be done in order to restore your “HONOR”, and claim your “REDEMPTION”.
In order to save yourself from the “indefintite and swift” banning process, Rockstar made the following notes on how to fix your game with new and unhacked save states:

* This will not apply to those people who simply took advantage of temporarily exploits to rapidly grind up XP a few weeks ago. We are able to tell who actually hacked their save to have impossible scores.
* Banned hackers will also be removed from the leaderboards.
* To be spared, any hacked saves that you have will need to be deleted – single player as well as multiplayer. You should be aware that everything is wiped when deleting saves. These are the only exceptions:
– Players would keep any Achievements/Trophies they had already earned.
– All preorder items tied to their accounts would be unlocked for them upon signing in and creating a new save while connected to Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network
– Any cheats earned through Social Club would be unlocked for them upon signing in and creating a new save while connected to Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network
* After deleting your hacked game save(s), you will then need to go online with Red Dead Redemption (prior to August 24th) for it to register that you’re now playing clean. For single-player saves, you will need to re-play the game while connected until you gain access to the safehouse at MacFarlane’s ranch. For multiplayer saves, you will need to play one full game online or do one Gang Hideout.
There’s not much time life, but there’s still time in order to “save” your “honor” and find “redemption” in the eyes of the all powerful Rockstar Administration. [Again, I apologize for the terrible puns. I guess it’s just “my thing”]
