Xboxic: Activision Search and Destroy biggest online CoD Hackers

Xboxic reports: ModdedWarfare was one of, if not 'the' biggest group of Call of Duty hackers who had managed to use specially created software to play hacked online Xbox Live games of 'Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare' & 'Call of Duty: World at War'. With what could potentially be the worlds biggest selling game coming out this year 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2' it would not come as a surprise that the software could potentially destroy the online experience for thousands of gamers sweating to get into some Modern Warfare 2 action! In an unexpected move, Activision have come forward and demanded the closure of websites providing such mod tools.

Xboxic have obtained a copy of the letter demanding closure.

I mean i know they wanna stop the hack n all but once its been set free nothing anyone does is going to stop ppl from using n sharing those hacks...
this just lets more ppl know about it imo.

Sad how both the ps3 and 360 versions of these games are hacked 2 guessing the sames gonna happen for MW2. Now anyone wanting to play honest needs to play a ggl or other official guild n run a vid capture cause some still cheat but with proof they get kicked.

spunnups3279d ago

Since when has the PS3 been hacked? That's news to me.

socomnick3279d ago

There are videos online of the ps3 hack, it was pretty neat actually the ps3 players were invisible and were shooting down while flying int he air lol. But year I just hope mw2 gets more post release support patches tho help block these hackers, and hope xbox live now with nxe can detect the hackers and disable their gamer tags.

ZombieNinjaPanda3279d ago

Snick, you're not as fanboy raged anymore! I like it! :)

And why are they asking the sites to be shut down? Once something is on the internet, you can't get rid of it.

What they should do is just ban the people who are hacking. If you want to endanger your account, then so be it. But they should pay the consequences.

gamesR4fun3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

yeh the ps3 aint hacked but the game is

they use a pc to modify the code to the server so not everyone's doing it but like the socomnick mentioned they can do some pretty ill stuff.

@Hellangelzx Ya patches and account bans are the way 2 go imo.

IdleLeeSiuLung3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

A combination of takedown and banning is necessary. Sure you will be able to find it, but it will be harder to fund and more people will probably give up. It will never be eliminated though.

I wish there was a replay option so you can report the cheaters. Cheating hurts everyone including the cheaters if everyone was cheating!

How about a patch or two to fiz the patch and maybe add some features you left out

-Rumble (360 version had it, you knew the PS3 dualshocks where probably coming out if not allready out)
-Six Axis (No excuse the PS3 has had it since day one, doesn't take much effort either but I suppose your not that type of company... a one interesting in their customers)
-Trophies (You made millions off the PS3 and yet you couldn't patch in trophies, the 360 has achievemtns just port them. WarHawk came out before COD 4 and it had trophies)

Just saying.

I don't hack, I barely glitch (I do small ones like the run while reloading one, but if that counts as a BIIG glitch then that's silly)

no_more_trolling3279d ago

they should release a patch. closing down the sites wont rectify the problem.

more sites like it will pop up

Mo0eY3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

I agree. Even if you get rid of the sites, the mod will still be floating around the internet. A simple Google search will point people in the right path if they wish to cheat.

Mo0eY3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

Look at all of those Xbots cheating on Call of Duty Snore to get their perks/XP and make themselves feel better about purchasing a gimped piece-of-sh!t system.

The superior PS3 version has no modifications allowing the truest and most honest game play. If you wish to warrant this power, turn a new leaf, throw your soon-to-be paperweight away, and embrace the only next gen. platform: Sony's Playstation 3.

"specially created software to play hacked online Xbox Live games of 'Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare' & 'Call of Duty: World at War'"

All of Call of Duty 4's achievements were offline idiot.

And how can you possibly say "superior" and "PS3" in the same sentence? Playing an FPS with that controller is like nails on a chalkboard it's totally nuts. Seriously get some taste and experience a real console. My PS3 just sits there.

Mo0eY3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

"Playing an FPS with that controller is like nails on a chalkboard it's totally nuts. Seriously get some taste and experience a real console. My PS3 just sits there." aka... I get owned at CoD4 by real PS3 gamers so I have to pay $50 to pay with prepubescents on XBL. Talk about self-esteem issues.

Yea, sell your PS3. In fact, give it to me. I know several people who will gladly take one, four of which are former Milkcrosoft bots.

-MD-3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

I've yet to play CoD4 on the PS3 because everyone I know that actually has played it on that console promptly switched to the 360 version.

It's no secret Infinity Ward favors the 360 version so why torture yourself with the inferior version?

Also from my experience the majority of PSN players are awful (probably has a lot to do with the controller) but yeah I've yet to meet anyone impressive on PSN. And about the XBLA price... hey man don't knock me because us 360 owners can afford nicer things than the rest of you guys.

"what? everyone on the PSN has owned ur @ss?" Nah I couldn't find anyone to play on MGS4 they were all probably still going through the 4 hour sign up process.

@cow - I'll sell it if Jaffe announces his game and it's not Twisted Metal.

gambare3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )


"Seriously get some taste and experience a real console. My PS3 just sits there. "

then why do you have one? sell it to someone who really wants it. And don't say some excuse like "I have it for metal gear"

"Also from my experience the majority of PSN players are awful (probably has a lot to do with the controller) but yeah I've yet to meet anyone impressive on PSn."

what? everyone on the PSN has owned ur @ss?

shutupandplay3279d ago

-Less players
-no communication
-a controller that`ll give you arthritis by age 25
-no party chat
Ps3 version it is.

-MD-3279d ago

Metal Gear was awful... and yeah my excuse for having one is Twisted Metal. If I sell the thing I know I'll never buy it again so I'm toughing it out until I hear Jaffe's announcement.

I regret buying it before the game was even announced though... I wasn't aware Sony would drop the ball and run themselves into the ground. I mean really 3 years with no Kingdom Hearts or Twisted Metal? Talk about P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C.

gambare3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

My excuse to have a 360 was gears 2, but I considered not worthy to have a console just for a game, so I sold it, and when gears 2 was released I play it with a friend, you should do the same, sell your ps3. if you have a console just for a game then you are P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C

WOW!!! cheaters can hack easily on Xbox360!!!???
of course, Xbox360 is cheap tech.

Hackers can't hack on PS3, because PS3 is incredibly powerful.

-MD-3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

"Incredibly powerful"

Thanks for the laugh deaf boy.

Mo0eY3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )




And done.
EDIT:@Below about KZ2:

The people have spoken. You, sir, are not the majority, and your opinion really doesn't matter to me anyway because you are a bot.
@Below again:
I'm not raging, lololol. I've actually gotten under your skin because you keep replying to me. GIVE ME TROLL FOOD.

-MD-3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

Yeah I'm looking forward to it too (Uncharted 2)

Worth every penny.

Edit: You linked a Killzone picture? What an awful game that was. Try and rage less though you're making it too easy for me to get under your skin. Just settle down and stop furiously searching for pictures of PS3 games.

billybob24683279d ago

You do realize that the first article on is about how their hack doesn't work anymore, right?

MetalGearBear 3279d ago

every time i read your comment, it pretty bored and incredibly stupid.

mooey always kick u ass. each time!!!!
face it, u failed!!!!!

Tr10wn3279d ago

LOL funny Mooey is really desperate he is linking arcticles about how powerful the PS3 is for me is just a blue-ray player but is ironic how the 360 has won almost every aspect Graphics, Online Entertainment and Sales and that my friend is the real majority.

oh might PS3 you are the most beautiful thing in my world

Mo0eY3279d ago


Clearly, you cannot read, but the reason I linked articles is because Murderdolls mocked deafphat by saying, "incredibly powerful."

You're dense.

Tr10wn3279d ago

Still you are desperate posting 7 article to prove that the ps3 is powerful well... ok w/e you said
