Hackers have brought the menus from challenge lobbies over into public matches as Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer gets destroyed on PlayStation 3.

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.

deadreckoning6662898d ago (Edited 2898d ago )

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.

Acquiescence2898d ago

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.

SnakeMustDie2898d 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?

FailOverHero2898d 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

fail0verflow2898d ago (Edited 2898d 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

pangitkqb2898d ago

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?

Dysmorphic2898d 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.

MerkinMax2898d ago (Edited 2898d ago )

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.

Commander_TK2898d ago (Edited 2898d ago )

Lol, all of u r acting like hacking is wrong. Need I remind u that Mark Zuckerberg, one of the most brilliant minds in history, was a hacker. And he also went through lawsuits. Look where he is now.

himdeel2898d ago

...buys this game every year?! Wow! I'm speechless...I won't let an craptivision game touch my console...EVER :)

And hell continues to bubble up and flood the earth...

HSx92897d ago


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.

Megaton2897d ago

Yeah! What a loser! Typical 13 year old cracking open a multinational corporation's flagship console. Stupid brainy smarties!

UnwanteDreamz2897d ago


Even more pathetic are the people who respect and look up to that 13yo.

Megaton2897d ago

@UnwanteDreamz - I know, bro! Totally feeling you! People shouldn't be respected for accomplishing things that 99% of this site couldn't even explain to their friends. They should be respected for earning trophies and stuff!

RememberThe3572897d ago (Edited 2897d ago )

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.

mrcash2897d ago

the hacks are ridiculous and just about everyone is using hacks/mods this is far worse then it ever was on xbox.

gaden_malak2897d ago

"Lol, all of u r acting like hacking is wrong. Need I remind u that Mark Zuckerberg, one of the most brilliant minds in history, was a hacker. And he also went through lawsuits. Look where he is now."

Brilliant minds?

Einstein and Newton had brilliant minds. And you're an idiot.

8thnightvolley2897d ago

even the 360 version wasnt this badly hacked.. thats just ugly.

someone should go in court and sue activision . Even if a frivolous complaint .

"Their shoddy code allow others to damage my console with repeated freezes"

Focker4202898d ago

Wow, what a fuckin jerk-off.

Blaze9292898d ago

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.

crzyjackbauer2898d 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

DORMIN2897d ago (Edited 2897d ago )

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.

crzyjackbauer2897d ago

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

kaveti66162897d ago

What happens when hackers decide to exploit games like KZ3 and BC2?

BattleAxe2897d ago

They won't exploit Killzone 2, and besides, Sony's first party studios would be all over that kind of thing.

xAlmostPro2898d 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

juggulator2898d 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.

xAlmostPro2898d ago

Yeah. Sadly, your right which is a shame.. cod4 is probably the best out of the franchise :(

Dante1122898d ago (Edited 2898d ago )

These hacks are affecting all platforms at the moment.

Edit: @ below this one is phony too right?

And this as well

geekwithtanlines2898d ago

that article is just a rip-off of this one. he used the same exact video, which shows the ps3 version, and doesn't comment either way as to what platform it's on. he's just trying to get some hits because this article is so hot right now. obvious theft is obvious.

geekwithtanlines2898d ago

never said they were phonies. learn how to read.

Dante1122898d ago (Edited 2898d ago )

"He used the same exact video, which shows the ps3 version, and doesn't comment either way as to what platform it's on."

Aka phony implying that it's not on other platforms, learn how to not contradict yourself, mmkay.

geekwithtanlines2898d ago

"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



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.

rmx6872898d 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.

Dante1122898d ago (Edited 2898d 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.

socomnick2898d ago

this is the start, every single ps3 game will now be plauged with hacks.

All thanks to the ps3 being jailbroken.

Freezing the ps3s of opposing team is hilarious, thanks to the hackers i will be able to troll on psn. lol

xAlmostPro2898d ago

these hacks have nothing to do with the ps3 hack, hacks like these were around before the ps jailbreak lol, its just over the top atm

UnwanteDreamz2897d ago


I feel dumber for having read that. You dont care how childish and ignorant you look?

MrJack2897d ago

I've played in these lobbys, most of the time people jsut auto-aim headshot people, but I have played some damn fun games with superspeed/superjump on, the should make that a private lobby option in MW3

BlackTar1872897d ago

megaton you couldnt miss the point anymore.

your logic is so flawed its ridiculus

MostJadedGamer2897d ago

Black Ops has been out for over 2 months now. There is no excuse to still be playing MW2. Hopefully this will encourage people to trade MW2 for Black Ops.

BattleAxe2897d ago

The hell with that, I'm going back to World at War.

TBM2897d ago

This is why I still enjoy my single player experience as these douche bags can't mess with that.

When and if I do play online I only play with friends and family.

madpuppy2897d ago

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.

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.

MeanOldman2898d 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.

Focker4202898d ago

Well, the retard clearly showed his PSN ID multiple times, it shouldn't be that hard to find him.

rob60212897d ago

I'm not sure that the hackers making these hacks make their identity known like the failoverflow crew and geohot, so it's hard to sue.

SMOK3xFFx2898d ago

LMFAO 3:40 AC130 crash.

TheGameFoxJTV2898d ago

I know. I hate MW2 anyways. So this video just gave me loads of chuckles.

Acquiescence2898d ago

Swell. Good job I gave up on the Call Of Duty games well over a year ago. A shame for anyone on the PS3 who hopes to play a fair match from here on out though.

SnakeMustDie2898d ago (Edited 2898d ago )

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

This is one of the downsides of allowing homebrew on all platforms.

Baka-akaB2898d ago (Edited 2898d ago )

no please no ...

they ought to go over crap ops , er black ops

Focker4202898d ago

Thats exactly what I just was thinking. Hopefully KZ3 isn't immediately ruined by these low lifes. It just pisses me off beyond belief that someone would enjoy ruining everything for everyone like this.

visualb2898d ago

GG and sony would deal with anyone running this stuff for sure

its hacking = cheating

that gets you kicked and banned on the PC online games, so it'd also do the same on consoles

pixelsword2897d ago

@ focker;

I agree.

That's a fanboy for ya; ruin everyting.
