I found it hilarious till I saw the options in that menu through a killcam, it included: Freezing the PS3s of the opposite team and unranking them back to level one. Thats a little mean.

Okey let's her those that are pro hacking how this is cool and all that.
What a bunch of no life losers.
Worst example is that freak failoverwhatever. Guy has nothing to do with failover team aka hackers but has that name. What a loser. Typical 13 yo that thinks he is cool if he has some cool username or some message on his T shirt that covers his skinny body.

I think its more of a problem with Modern Warfare 2 than it is with hacking in general. Its more prone to glitches and hacks than any other PS3 game I've ever played.

Exactly lamback...
I'd like to see anyone who supports the likes of geohat and failover watch this vid and still advocate the "art" of hacking. This is what it instantly leads to: cheating, soon to be on a mass scale.

Sony have every right to file a lawsuit. Every right.
SnakeMustDie  +   1322d ago
Wasn't failoverflow supposed to keep the key confidential because they planned to use it to bring back Linux but GeoHot released the keys to the public because he is such an attention whore?
FailOverHero  +   1322d ago
I think guns are cool. Do I think it is cool when they are used to kill innocent people? Of course not. I think hacks are cool when they bring about great homebrew, some people use them to cheat and pirate and I do not think that is cool but I'm not gonna suddenly think all hacks are bad lol. That was very childish by the way
fail0verflow  +   1322d ago
this sucks

why ruin a game for others? of course they can leave, but how about you meat with other cheaters and then play?

do it private, otherwise you're a certified asshole

It's one thing to bend the rules/physics of a private game filled with friends, all aware of the new rules. It's an entirley other (and ugly) thing to use hacks to ruin the fun of strangers. They paid money to play the game and you are ruining it for them.

Why would you do that?
Dysmorphic  +   1322d ago
It'd be quite awesome if developers themselves added similar options and effects into private matches and such. At the very least it would instil some more variety. This also reminds me of the zany GTA cheats you could input. I wish more games would implement codes in such a way. Saint's Row 2 is the closest I've played to matching that brilliance; kinda makes you sad.
MerkinMax  +   1322d ago
I literally just bought the Modern Warfare Collection for my PS3
And I am playing and I run into this. One of the games left a picture of marijuana across my screen and reset my killstreaks and classes. I had to reset my console and then redo all my classes. Sony should ban the living hell out of these people. I don't mind private modding but the second you affect my game and console that I payed money for there is a big fucking problem.

@Acquiescence

Modern Warfare 2 was hacked 3 days after it came out, Geohot didn't even touch that game lol, the only thing Geohot did was allow the hacks to become more accessible due to his Custom Firmware, and these "hacks" aren't new, it's really old bro.

Because people who paid for and are playing legitimately are having all their work reset, they're games crashed.

Your a troll, you never have anything constructive to say, and if this was on the 360 you'd hate it.

How is this OK in your mind? How is it that people who legitimately buy their games and are having to put up with this crap the bad guys? they're pissed because they want to play their game the way they were made and compete with other gamers. All this hacking does is serve to make online games unplayable. If you were an actual gamers, that would suck to you.

this has nothing to do with the recent PS3 hacks. This is actually pure hacking thanks to a game Activision/Infinity Warn left unpatched. MW2 on the PS3 has always been a problem in the past and now it's just getting worse.
crzyjackbauer  +   1322d ago
I don’t wanna be a fanboy or anything
but I never new why people hated this game
I played it on 360 since november last year and loved it
I just got it for ps3 this xmas so I can play with my
cousins on ps3, and wow huge diffrence
half of the games I enter on ps3 are glitch rooms
and groundwar is laggy as hell
but I guess mw2 is better than BO on ps3
DORMIN  +   1322d ago
@crzyjackbauer: Stop trolling and flaming.
I own MW2 on 360 and BO on PS3. Both are glitchy, laggy, and sometimes you will run into the occasional hacker. Frankly, thats the hidden cost of buying a game so popular. There will always be dicks ruining it for others.

Thankfully, there are better FPSs that are less riddled with problems and more supported than Activision because their only concern is to get the next CoD out every year and not fix the problems of their previous games.

Hell they just released a CoD MW collection and they didn't bother fixing the game beforehand.

Back on topic: I'm definitely done buying activision games, learn how to support/fix your damn games! Judging by the amount of videos that guy on YouTube has about these hacks it looks like he has been ruining it for strangers since launch.

im not trolling
i use to do the care package glitch on 360
but i never got out of hand and that got fixed

people do get banned and they get theyre stats rolled down to negetaive numbers on 360

i got a friend that has -100000 kills
im not saying the 360 version is not glitchy but theres a lot less people glitching
look at the headline on this post it says "Modern Warfare 2 hacked to shreds on PS3" ON PS3!

See it like this, if hackers keep doing that ''Demote players back to Rank 1'' thing, maybe the victems will end up buying a REAL game. like Killzone 3, Bad Company 2, or w/e!

instead of playing nothing else but CoD
kaveti6616  +   1322d ago
What happens when hackers decide to exploit games like KZ3 and BC2?
BattleAxe  +   1322d ago
They won't exploit Killzone 2, and besides, Sony's first party studios would be all over that kind of thing.
xAlmostPro  +   1322d ago
its not just mw2.. went on cod4 for the first time in months yesterday and kept getting thrown into hacked public lobbies such as challenge ones and prestige ones now my stats are messed up and im like 8th prestige and theres nothing i can do about it..

allthough there was one cool infection which was a promod infection so every map i played onwards had promod maps which look stunning to be fair xD

but yeah these games are a shambles on ps3 right now
juggulator  +   1322d ago
A guess what, with Infinity Ward in disarray over losing it's founders don't expect this to be fixed, ever. The hackers know that Activision could care less about this game and that it'll never be patched so its pretty much free reign for them to do whatever they want to do.
xAlmostPro  +   1322d ago
Yeah. Sadly, your right which is a shame.. cod4 is probably the best out of the franchise :(

"phony" means "fake." i didn't say his article was "fake." i said his article was a "rip-off," ie he stole the idea from here and tried to make it his own. you shouldn't use words if you don't understand their definitions. try dictionary.com.

also, no one here is saying this hack is ONLY affecting the ps3. the experience of the person who wrote this article, as well as the information in the video, are specific to the ps3. i don't think anyone believes it's only been hacked on the ps3 - it was hacked on pc and xbox 360 long before this.
rmx687  +   1322d ago
@Dante112, if you read the original article, the forums are where the problem is being reported. Xbox 360 users have yet to report these problems in public matches while there are a lot of PS3 threads on the subject. While these hacks have been available for a while, as evidenced by one of your videos, this is the first time they're appearing on public matches on the PlayStation 3.
Dante112  +   1322d ago
@ geekwithtanlines

According to some folks above, it appears that way (only on the ps3 version) and some below think it's actually because of the ps3 piracy situation now. Might've taken you the wrong way earlier thinking that you were implying that it was only on the ps3 so my bad man. I apologize.

I think that they should hardware ban every last hacked PS3 from PSN. then if you want to run Linux be my guest.

As for gaming on Sony's Personal servers (PSN) should be exclusively for people that BUY the games they play.

why would anyone think they have the "right" to be on someone else's network running Pirated software and cheating hacks is beyond me.
HarryMonogenis  +   1322d ago
The guy in the video makes some pretty strange sounds when he's thinking of what to say:

It's in-between the 6:00 and 7:00 minute mark.

As for the hacks. Wow, I want to know what Infinity Ward think of this -- if they've seen it.
MeanOldman  +   1322d ago
it isnt infinity ward they need to be worried about. now these hackers are getting stupid cause the next thing you know they will have companies like activision and ea coming after them too. at some point there will be just too many legal teams to deal with and hacking wont feel so cool when your life is ruined.

an dont act like they are that smart about keeping quiet cause too many of these dudes have fat egos.

stand on the curb an keep throwing them rocks cause once you hit the wrong dog you aint got nothing to cry over when you get bit.

I guess its time for CoD fanboys to migrate to Resistance or Killzone. Unless they also made hacks for those other two.

I only came across a hacker who abused the game on the 360 once out of hundreds of games played. The rest of them just used it to alter the color of their names which is something you can do in Black Ops now anyways. The whole "hackers are everywhere and taking over" thought is over exaggerated, even on a console that's been broken in to for years.

hesido  +   1322d ago
Is this using firmware hacks? If so, multiplayer gaming on the console is good as over for me. Seriously. Using map glitches and bugs to gain advantage is one thing (which I also oppose), but gaining massive advantage through software fiddling, which I was used to see on the PC's, is the worst thing that could happen to console multiplayer gaming.
TheGameFoxJTV  +   1322d ago
This rarely happens on PC anymore. Too many way to keep the hackers and script kiddies out. Not to mention most servers on games just ban on first offense.
hesido  +   1322d ago
I'm seriously thinking going back to PC gaming, because of this. Lowlife "hackers" ruining one more thing. I guess this is part of their "if you have something in your possession, you should be able to use it however you want" mantra. So if they acquire a game, they should be allowed to fly around in god mode with aimbots, because they have possession of the game.

Unfortunately, some of those those too-many-ways will also have to be implemented to console games, reducing their performance. Programmers will spend more time trying to detect hacks than actually design the frigging game. Overall, it is bad for everybody, excluding the morons who ruin multiplayer gaming.
nycredude  +   1322d ago
Dude don't be a drama queens. It's a couple of COD games, which is shit anyway. PLay something else.
hesido  +   1322d ago
You don't get it. If games can be tampered with using external software, outside the incompetence of the game programmers leading to glitches which will always stay isolated per game, it would lead to mass hacking for all games. All I'm asking is whether this is the incompetence of Treyarch, or are they using external software to get these, which a console shouldn't let.

I think it is most definitely the incompetence of the treyarch. ALl of the cod games have had this type of problem.

You will never stop hacks or network menipulation. In the world of online play people will do whatever they can to get an edge. I just find it hularious that when MW2 first came out and people were messing with the game. M$ came out and said they would ban people's consoles from online play. At that point Sony said that they would not do the same. It made it "ok" to hack or whatever on PSN. All you laughed as M$ was banning people claiming the superiority of PS. Now Sony wants to sue because someone hacked the PS. Too little too late.
