Yeah I often ask myself the same question, what are we going to do in order to deal with this? Really the gamers that don't cheat end up getting punished more than the cheaters themselves a lot and Treyarch claimed that they would do a good job at stopping them this time around. Let's see if they can handle the onslaught of hacking that is soon to come...
Yup... Call Of Duty can easily be hacked within seconds. and IM GLAD! F*^K CALL OF DUTY
@Hiphop- This is your most thought-provoking title ever. I'll be watching shortly. EDIT: Apparently, this isn't HHG...should have known. @TurismoGTR- And what do you think hackers will do after they've hacked COD? They'll move on to YOUR games of choice. @THILLREBORN- I like your stuff. I'll be tuning in on future episodes!
No I'm not HHG but I am an editor on his site.
MW2, WaW, and COD4 all got hacked on the xbox easily.. THe xbox version of black ops had 1 hack which got patched, everything else has been glitches... The same hacks will be coming over to the ps3 until either the ps3 hacks get fixed or they change something in the game.. I do find it a little annoying that robert bowling went quite public in blaming the ps3's security hacks for the in game hacks... The xbox had the same hacks because the MW2 security was crap due to the game being unfinished. Wheres his public response to that?
its doomed because they dont want to patch it
Any popular title is at that risk.
Can Geohot hack HHG website and just remove him from the internet?
I'm not HHG...watch the video!!! Plus your a jerk because HHG is a great guy and you prove how your the lowest common denominator because you comment without watching the video you sheep!
Serjikal_Strike never said you were hiphopgamer. i was gonna report him as off topic but you seem to be giving yourself away. way to go dude!!
Call of Duty is not doomed in my opinion. Not yet anyway. I'm holding my breath on this one until I see the next installment that Sledgehammer is working on now. Do believe Treyarch has what it takes to take the franchise to the next level but Sledgehammer can put a big dent in the fanbase if they don't deliver. BTW; Just trying to be funny with WHG remark. No hate intended!
"I'm not HHG...watch the video!!! " no shit really? "your the lowest common denominator because you comment without watching the video you sheep!" I did watch about half cuz your just as annoying as your boss HHG
Hacking will never destroy franchises. It's developers and publishers that are entitled to that.
@strike You talk trash but do nothing but follow the sheep crowd...baaaa @Tjernobieleke With people on N4G you never know if they watched/read the article so the assumption is that all they do is look at the source link and respond. With all the HHG hate here my natural reaction was to clarify that I was not HHG but he went on to prove that all he wants to do is talk smack.
what the fuck is it with you and SHEEP? do you have some wierd fetish for SHEEP?
As much as I read about COD hacks, it's actually extremely rare that I see it happening in-game.
Call of Duty Doomed because Activision
Ok that was a good listen, but the Call of Duty glitchs and hacks have 0 to do with George, so I dont understand why he is being blamed for it. They found out how to apply the exploits on the PS3 through a software installation I dont think it works on other Sony Exclusives or Multiplatforms If exploits happen on DCU it wont have anything to do with him and I pressume any glitchs or hacks will be to get your characters stats up easily, weapon or mission glitches
Its already happening there is a patch available for DCU that makes all missions immediately complete as soon as you get them. There is nothing the developers can do. This PS3 flaw might lead to some insane Online DRM or I could even see PSN being made a paid service in order to combat online cheating due to this flaw. Preventing Online cheating and maintaining a good online experience for games is one thing. The piracy issues is another. The latest KaKaRoTo patch for the PS3 utilizing the failoverflow bug has a pretty nice bootloader that makes it insanely easy to load .pkg files. There have been several tools released this week to copy PS3 games into compressed formats on either your PC or directly on your patched PS3. There was also updates to a tool that are being baked into the latest patches that allow game backups to be broken up and placed into several compressed files to be stored on a remote server that allow it to be loaded in less than a minute over a wireless connection. Right now people are blowing up torrents and alt.bin.console.ps3 of backed up games in .pkg format, and I'm sure there is at least a few early adopters out there will 5TB of PS3 games stored on a remote server. By nearly every account there is nothing Sony can do to combat game piracy due to this flaw. But there are several steps that can be taken to prevent people from using patches to cheat or disrupt players online. Unfortunately most solution will probably be DRM implementation or drastic change to PSN accounts.
Yeah I hear you I have been talking to my friend about the piracy as he knows alitte more about all of this than I do but for games like DCU to be getting glitched in, its again got little to do with GeoHut exploits in games can be found out by anyone, whether its a software exploit or something hidden in the game
I guess it really has to do with the game and the hack. The Geohot/failoverflow bug is new enough that people that were investigating glitches 2 months didn't take this bug into consideration. However with DCU just being released and there is a cheat out for it, I don't know first hand but it is likely due to the GeoHot exploit. Developers can't really patch they programs to combat against it like Infinity Ward responded, because Sony's key was lost, this cheat/patch code has been digitally signed with Sony's signature.
Hey some news on the PS3 Custom that got released: Over 100 PS3s so far have been Bricked that installed lol
The Intro was painful.
It's in no way doomed because of hackers... It is, however, inevitably doomed due to the painful milking process.
Good thing am not a Call of Duty player. Battlefield Bad Company 4 Life
