For some odd reason, I think it's unfair to judge game companies. Rather than having to patch up your game, find the people behind it and drop a lawsuit. Surely, the webpages that host these cheats can be closed if Activision drops enough investment into it. I am not saying a tremendous amount, but put a lawyer on it and it will slowly fade out.
Pixel_Pusher  +   1261d ago
Since they're using the same engine as MW2 we'll probably see hacks and exploits on day one.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1261d ago

3 years later and they decided to patch their games. Great Job Infinity Ward Great job!

(Why do people like this dev?)
Criminal  +   1261d ago
It seems like they are on the right track. They took out many "exploitable" perks.
Solidus187-SCMilk  +   1261d ago
haha yeah, only took them 2-4 years

James Vanderbeek  +   1261d ago
for one of highest selling games they have the crappiest online support.
Solid_Snake-  +   1261d ago
damn. i wanted WAW fixing as well. cod 4 fixed is a good bonus though. cheers IW.
kriauciuniux  +   1260d ago
I liked it when i got into a hacked loby,it started very strange unusual,I saw an enemy shot him and got bilion points and imideatelly ranked up tp lvl 70 from 23.Now I haz all teh weponz
J86blum  +   1261d ago
well thats alot late.
Simco876  +   1261d ago
Yep.... "a little late don't you think" would be the better phrase, but hey whatever works.
john2  +   1261d ago
At least they are fixing them... unlike some other companies
Criminal  +   1261d ago
MidnytRain  +   1261d ago
Naughty Dog still hasn't fixed the treasure and gemometry glitches in Uncharted 2 multiplayer. IW deserves some slack, though. Activision puts them into a rigid schedule, so it's harder to attend released games.
ChiVoLok0  +   1261d ago
@MidnytRain got to agree with you on Naughty Dog not fixing the glithches. I noticed that instead of fixing it they kinda made it worse. It's still fun but I think it was more enjoyable when the game first came out. Hope that doesn't happen in U3's multiplayer.

What? they were one of those companies that didn't fix em.

LMAO. bubs.
Sillyace92  +   1260d ago
too bad the game came out nearly 2 years ago. You've just admitted that you've played it recently.

kriauciuniux  +   1260d ago
Whats wrong in playing a 2 years old game?
I still play Bc1 witch was released in 08,and have shit loads of fun.
Sillyace92  +   1260d ago
Nothing's wrong with it, just that these people are so quick to insult Call of Duty, yet if he moved on why did he play the game a few months ago?

Clearly that game came out close to 2 years ago, seems strange that he'd play that game recently.
Snowii  +   1261d ago
i just hope mw3 wont have ghost or second chance

keep the crosbow though :D
Criminal  +   1261d ago
I second that. I feel Ghost slowed down Black Ops, and Second Chance is just a cheap perk.
#6.1 (Edited 1261d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
DufferO8  +   1261d ago
i wouldn't consider the cross-bow to be "modern"
Snowii  +   1261d ago

its a cool feature and fun to use

also the tomhawk and balistic would be nice
princejb134  +   1261d ago
i like ghost is very useful, second chance is very annoying
Adaminy  +   1260d ago
yeah, second chance needs to go. i was guilty of using it when it first came out but starting using marathon instead. i've never used ghost but i know it'd piss off a lot of people if they took it out.
Snowii  +   1260d ago
ghost is pretty gay

and try using hacker its much better than marathon
Hicken  +   1261d ago
So, CoD4 has been out HOW LONG?
Forbidden_Darkness  +   1261d ago
Since November 2007.
fireplace  +   1261d ago
Still, it's the best Call of Duty to date and it's actually a very good game.
firemassacre  +   1261d ago
there called infinity ward for a reason, because thats how long it takes to patch there games, and in my opinion, to love this game you would have to be in a mental ward. adds up dosent it. infinityward
TXIDarkAvenger  +   1261d ago
Wow, they patch it now when MW3 is coming out :/

Well whatever, I still play CoD4 here and there so this is pretty great news thou its kind of too late.
Nitrowolf2  +   1261d ago
That's really late, come on guys get your sh1t together.
One thing they can learn from Black ops is how Treyarch has an auto ban system for anyone using edited files.
Hitman0769  +   1261d ago
Too little too late, this means nothing to me.
newleaf  +   1261d ago
and yet here you are
BlackKnight  +   1261d ago
Yes, because something that is disappointing or not a good enough or means little to you means you shouldn't be allowed to comment on it. People's logic on here is just terrible.

Mechanic: "Hey, I fixed your car"
Customer: "What do you mean? I already I have a new car, the fact you are fixing that POS means nothing now"

Mechanic: "Yet you respond to me saying this, must mean you care! BUHAHAHAH"

#11.1.1 (Edited 1261d ago ) | Agree(5) | Disagree(4) | Report
HSx9  +   1260d ago
Yeah... you payed the mechanic $200 to fix your car which probably cost $5,000+ and you don't want it anymore, BEST COMPARISON EVER.

MidnytRain  +   1261d ago
I think a lot of people still play both of those games.
ape007  +   1261d ago
MW2 is the second most played game on xbox live and psn and cod 4 is a timeless classic
newleaf  +   1261d ago
I'd rather they patch them than close their servers like EA
SuperDopetastic  +   1261d ago
lmao wow IW....you guys are funny
StankyChicken  +   1261d ago
2 years later......
slaton24  +   1261d ago
4 years later....2010 black ops, 2009 modern warfare2, 2008 world at war, 2007 modern warfare 1
StankyChicken  +   1259d ago
I was speaking more in terms of mw2.
slaton24  +   1258d ago
@stankychicken...well u should have said that because title states both mw1 and mw2
SuperBeast811  +   1261d ago
LOL im glad to see their on top of this in a timely manner lol ive already given up on those games time to move on
Raven_Nomad  +   1261d ago
People will find a reason to complain about Call Of Duty or Activision no matter what they do. I played COD4 for years with no problems, I took my team to the Gamebattles playoffs and the top 32. It's only been recently that I've seen any hacked lobby's. With all their resources focused on Modern Warfare 3, you can see why it'd be hard to keep updates coming for a game that is 4 years old.
BALLARD32  +   1261d ago
Considering how there's still a decent sized community for CoD4, I find no reason for them to not stay on top of security. CoD4 has been in shambles for months now. I hope it can be brought back to a playable state.
iHEARTboobs  +   1261d ago
"With all their resources focused on Modern Warfare 3, you can see why it'd be hard to keep updates coming for a game that is 4 years old."

Smaller companies with less resources have done a better job with updates. It's one of the highest grossing games out there, i'm sure they have the funds to hire a couple more people to work on this stuff.

Anyhow, it gives me hope that they'll support MW3 better than the last two MW's.
kingslayer1000  +   1260d ago
you play on 360, theres hakcked lobbies all over the place
slaton24  +   1258d ago
dude not just the 360...its on all systems(pc as well)
JellyJelly  +   1261d ago
"If you have played Call of Duty 4 or Modern Warfare 2 recently..."

Timeframe fail.
ExplicitG  +   1261d ago
Sure they have said this before....
Kobe Bryant  +   1261d ago
I've heard this somewhere before..
NotSoSilentBob  +   1261d ago
And it will only take a few weeks for them to show up again. what else does IW think they can do right?
RAYMEISTER  +   1261d ago
For PC it wouldn't surprise me if it meant getting rid of mod support and dedicated servers like they did for MW2.
momthemeatloaf  +   1261d ago
I can't stand Activision. They're only now doing this so it makes CoD fans more secure with the franchise and allows people to play MW2 and CoD4 so they eventually go buy MW3. This is BS cause hacks have been going in the games for months now.

CrimsonEngage  +   1261d ago
Lmao at how late they are. I hope MW3 is riddle with bugs/hackers like Blops thus putting yet another nail in this coffin.
StayStatic  +   1261d ago
I'd like my money back please , failing that ill take a dedicated server to your face :)

Have a nice day sir !
Rearden  +   1261d ago
Better late than never.
ape007  +   1261d ago
hopefully a wake up call 4 whats next (mw3)
Hazmat13  +   1261d ago
sweet so now i can pwn with the G36C again on COD4 why isnt cad on MW2?? glad its on MW3 my only reason to buy it. well that and Spec Ops and storyline hey its still fun to play!
SwiftShot  +   1261d ago
I wont buy mw3 til maybe christmas or even 6 months after release cause GoW3 will keep me occupied for a while. Hoping its not glitched like a mother.
LilDeja93  +   1261d ago
I still play COD4 and the hacked speed lobbies are pissin annoying.

Glad to see their still supporting my favoraite COD.
James Vanderbeek  +   1261d ago
cod4 is awesome.. i cant even play modern warfare 2 or black ops after i played cod4 again.. such a better game online.
