Oh Major, settle down now.

The game was a scam ever since they raised the price, only difference is it's okay because Activision's doing it officially.

Not to sound incredibly heartless, but for the people who actually fall for this crap they deserve it.

Microsoft warns of Modern Warfare 2 phishing scam

Why warn only 360 owners ? The game is a scam on ps3 too :p
DarkTower805  +   1753d ago
Because PS3 owners are smarter.

After the pathetically dumb comments I see in the Open Zone in every article I wouldn't exactly call PS3 fanboys 'smart'.

he said smarter, not smart
DarkTower805  +   1753d ago
sarcasm anybody?

Learn to differentiate Fanboys and fans.

just send them the wrong info and let them play with that. If they recontact you tell them the exact same thing and then ask if they are stupid for not being able to login with y our info. Rinse and repeat as needed.

M$, being hypocritical once again, warning others of scamming when they do a lot of scamming themselves i.e. selling the arcade version of the xbox 360, when with the hard drive would equal the price of the elite, not to mention wireless add ons

Anyone who falls for a password request deserves everything they have coming to them.
RockmanII7  +   1753d ago
This is a old trick. I remember when bungie had to warn Halo players about people saying they would give them recon armor, but they just needed their password. Anyone who falls for this is either a dumb@ss or a part-time gamer.
Staude  +   1753d ago
Never Not a scam.. Why that's a double negative.

It's kinda ridiculous that they need to put out these warnings. Phishing has been around for well over 10 years now. Only people with Downs would fall for them.
DMasta718  +   1753d ago
Anyone one who falls for this really deserve this. In general, you get warned not to give your info to anyone.

Even though the scamming is not happening that much on PSN, spam messages of a "beta" for the game is happening alot.

M$ knows all about scams
hell, they scam box owners everyday, especially the ones who pay to play online...SUCKERS!
iWRECK  +   1753d ago
i know who
so a guy named Cabooseboy24 sent me a message saying send me your email and password and my dad works for infinity ward and he gave me the beta for mdwf2 and ill give it to you for 4000 microsft points. sooo ha!
