A cheat software for GTA Online
"Elusive" is the name of the cheat software for GTA Online created by this Florida resident. The software was sold on the network at a price between 10 and 30 dollars. For less than 25 euros, GTA Online players had access to many features that were not planned by the game, including a feature to access an unlimited amount of money, which allows you to enjoy at the bottom of the game, in detriment of the most honest players who were limited in their purchases.

UU He sentenced Jhonny Pérez to pay a $ 150,000 fine for developing and marketing deceptive software for GTA Online. This person must also reimburse the costs of the opposing attorney, which is close to $ 67,000.

The arguments used by Take-Two to request such a conviction are simple: first, the developer of the cheat software has violated the copyrights that correspond to the developers of GTA Online. In addition, by allowing online players access to an unlimited amount of money, the developer of Elusive disrupted the balance of the game. This access to the traps has created an equality gap between the players, which has certainly interrupted the experience of some.
