MP1st - When the team behind Modern Warfare 3 talked up the new banning system, they meant business.
Lol must suck to be him i don't get the point in cheating if you have to cheat your pathetic and straight out suck at videogames.
It's over 5000!!!!!
Damn !!!! That's about 13 years and more 5000 divided by 365 days = 13.6986301
It took the franchise 4 games before they finally began doing this.... Now lets see them do the same with the older games... Yeah, I doubt it -_-
Lol a 13 year ban. That poor kid. He'll be 20 years old when the ban is lifted.
Nah its ok! There will be 15 new cod games before the ban lifts off!!!
OMG I lol'd.
LOL Yeah exactly, he'll just have to wait what, 3 months? Till a new cod and he'll be good to go again.
lol so true, and i bet the 15th cod game will still run on the same sh*tty engine.
^ best agree / disagree ratio I've ever seen on here :P Atleast we all agree on something lol
ROFL... Sad but true.
Think of it as a sign he needs to stop playing CoD.
Personally, I think they did him a favor. Now he can cheat in much better games.
How is that a good thing? I would rather have cheaters like him stay in CoD :(
The article didn't say he cheated. EA for example bans people because they make comments in forums they don't like. We really don't know why he was banned.
one person on n4g had a great idea. instead of banning them have their guy wear a pink pokedot dress. refer to them and address them as "lil bitches" aw man we have a lil bitch on our team! or hey lil bitch! so on and so on....humiliation would be so much better for cheaters
Having your character wear a dress would be punishment? I think you would have people cheating just so they would get caught so they could have the dress. As for people calling them names, couldn't they just mute them. Overall, that doesn't sound like much of a punishment.

if you say so man
When people look at his gamertag, they should be able to see a label that says "CHEATER"
@tompeeper you are correct, i would buy cod, finally get on xbox live and cheat just to get the dress. would be pretty hilarious. actually maybe that would be a good idea to get more sales.
lmao really 5000 days this is a big fuck you from activision dont buy my game ever again
Trust me to get banned from playing Call Of Duty is really the best thing that could happen to him. It gives him time to play other FPS which will enlighten him that COD is just pure rubbish.
he might just be waiting for the next CoD or go back to BO! afterall, it's still the 2nd most played game on XBL and maybe PSN!
The good news is that in 365 days or less he'll be able to play the next COD.
Wow, 14 years? That's quite a punishment! What did he do, beat up Bowling's mother??
Haha golden, 14 years.
Probably the same age as the guy
F***ing golden, you mean. Blago will be out of prison before this guy's ban lifts (because we all know he will get out on "good behavior").
A little drastic, no? A 1 or 2 month ban would have been more suitable.
It depends on what he did, but 14 years sounds just about right. ;)
Maybe by that time he will actually be old enough to play M rated games.
Cheating is cheating bro :p
I don't think any one will be playing MW3 in 14 years lol..but no he cheated it's his own fault.
lol you guys have no remorse. if I were a criminal I'd hate to have you in the jury
yea well people like you obv. run this country because our criminals run rampant of our system. Jus saying lol
If it was a punishment for hacking, a permanent ban is deserved, but I'll be very surprised if people are still playing MW3 in 14 years time. By my reckoning, we'll be playing MW10: Soldiers is Space or something daft!
Awesome. I'd love to see this implemented in every multiplayer game. Hope the person who got nailed with it is one of the numerous 12 year olds on there who wreck matches.
This calls for a Nelson HaHa video.
Bless you sir...
Sadly, he'll probably get a new account and do the same stuff until he gets caught again. But, this should serve as a warning for others.
Well if he is on the PS3, yes it's free to just go get another PSN ID. If he is on xbox live, he will have to pay to get a new gamertag, another reason why xbox live is better, and worth paying for.
lol really? really man?
you basically said, xbl is better because you pay...
Yeah, seriously PHIB, just shut up.
dude you comment fails because you say PSN sucks because you don't have to pay and LIVE rocks because you have to pay.
it's debatable what is better, but one of the few + sides of xbl is that a$$holes have to go through more hassle to come back.
I think Phib's point is that if bans are going to be so severe and creating another account costs money then it will act as a deterrent for people creating multiple accounts. Where as that deterrent doesn't exist on the PSN because there is no charge. Think of it in terms of trolling a message board that has the basic sign up and one that costs $5 to sign up. The cost wouldn't be worth the LOLs
where was this ban when Halo 2 came out? Get rid of the rotten ones for a long time, then people can point and laugh and make an example of them. I wonder if he was boosting or modding. Never forget a friend of mine going into the (i think) theater mode or whatever on Black Ops, and seeing the top ranked players shooting stationary people over and over again through each of the first 20 matches. seriously though, why cheat? what kind of bragging rights do you really have? how can you (in the case of Halo 2 for example) use standby to kick players out and win the match? is it really that fun? or is it just that anonymity with malicious intent the ultimate aphrodisiac for these players?
The reason is simple. They have no self esteem and instead of fixing themselves they decide it is easier to just cheat and be annoying. All they have in life is to convince themselves that they are good at something that really doesn't matter at all.
Scrolling through the comments and got to this... made me shoot Coke (soda) out my nose. Bubs++ for funny.
LOL @ "soda"
If only they'd ban the players with shitty attitudes, but that's likely 90% of the community. It's rare when I find a lobby that isn't contaminated with douche bags.
good f him hate people like this
thats crazy if the devs dont pay attention to exploits then its them that should be punished cod has no extensive betas and then they are shocked when these problems occur
13 years 35 weeks and 6 days, if you want that level of precision. I wonder what the player did to warrant a 5000 day ban. I think that would be excessive for someone who exploited a glitch to level faster, or cussed out another player. He must have hacked the game or something.
don't worry dude. you will get to play a 'NEW' CoD in less than 360 days. lol
Cod mw4 SOAPS back and whats his face the evil dude isnt dead. O NO how did we miss this 1??? Im calling it right now! trey arch's next cod
LOL. I said the same thing!
Reminds me of the monster hunter tri bans, cant remember how much time was it through.
Wow 5k days a lifetime ban. Well the user can creat a new account if he isn't IP banned.
Even if his IP is banned, he can ask his ISP to give him a new IP. But, still this should be a warning for cheaters in general.
People... PS3's have an unique identifier, I am almost certain that the console is banned, not the player's PSN account.
He should be banned for owning the game in the first place lol.
you guys with one bubble make the funniest comments I swear.
That's the price to get the truth out there....but it's DAMN worth it!
Can't he get the PS3 version then? Couldn't he pay for a new XBL account? Couldn't he buy a new router to force it to give him a new IP? (I've done it... it works). There's ways around it!
You obviously didn't try it... 1) He is already playing on PS3 2) Then you would pay twice... 3) IP? They won't ban your IP but your cd-key, so... new game it is for you.
