MS Take Action Against LIVE Cheaters

Major Nelson has a blog post referring to a new approach from MS against people using save games or other tampering to boost their gamerscore.

They're resetting the score to zero, and the achievements will never be obtainable again.

From the article: "If you decide to employ some nefarious techniques to artificially increase your Gamerscore or obtain achievements by manipulating the Xbox software without playing the game, bad things will happen. What type of bad things? For one thing we may remove the entire Gamerscore for an account that contains manipulated gamerscore. Let me be more clear: If you use tampered gamesaves to boost your Achievements and Gamerscore, you may sign in to Xbox LIVE one day and discover that we have removed your Gamerscore. Once we do that, you will never be able to re-earn those achievements on that account. Even worse, you might have your account and/or console banned from Xbox Live."

those cheaters need to be told that if you do something bad you will pay for it and no getting away with it or bypassing it and the banning thing is good,if some1 can't play without cheating he/she should not be playing games unless you learn to behave and act properly.

A bigger e-penixx :nuts:

Nah but I think it's good they're dealing with cheaters. This approach might be a bit radical, but I think the message is pretty clear this way.

Somewhere a lonely 48-year-old Hot Pocket-eating man who lives in his mother's basement is crying like a schoolgirl. Pwned.

Now, let's do a better job matching online players so the laggers can play with other laggers.
