Infinity Ward Takes Responsibility
Nearly everyone is aware of the PS3 hack inadvertently created by Geohotz. This hack, once expanded upon, allows people to store actual game discs on their hard drive, gather trophies with minimal effort, and other occasional hack based interfaces. Many a gamer can back that statement up but none more than Modern Warfare 2 gamers. Modern Warfare 2 has become an absolute hack kingdom on the PS3. People can garner unfair advantages, enter into a god mode, mess with other people’s stats, and that isn’t even tipping the iceberg.
Little over a week ago, Infinity Ward blamed all these problems on Sony and how they could do next to nothing to fix this situation. Many would say Infinity Ward was using Sony as a scapegoat. Well it looks like Infinity Ward has finally “grown up” and is taking responsibility for their game. Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward Community Management, had this to say on the Infinity Ward forums.
““I just left a security meeting with the coders here at Infinity Ward where we discussed a lot of solutions. I feel good about the meeting, but of course I can’t go into detail on the possible solutions we discussed as we don’t want to give out any information that could potentially hinder the security any further. The key factor I want you to know is that while any update takes time, we are looking to make the process as quick as possible and nothing is being left unattended.”
“Our main focus right now is on:
1.) Preventing hackers from affecting legitimate players
2.) Addressing users who have already been affected.”
It’s nice to see a game’s creators finally doing something about the mob of problems on the last Call of Duty game. It was still a pretty low blow to blame Sony for all of these problems but let’s be honest; there was still a ton of glitchers/hackers even before this PS3 hack was built. For all of those affected by the cheaters, hang in there…redemption is coming.
