Well, that's what you get for playing MW2.
Time to switch to BF:BC2.

Quite suspicious that this happens after the whole Sony saga. Many are claiming that there is a link between the two.

I wonder if this had anything to do with the unbanning of Xbox 360 consoles? I could imagine the amount of people, promising those who don't know any better that they can get them 10th Prestige if they hand over their Xbox LIVE profile information.

It's MW2 related, that game is a mess when it comes to hackers, so it's probably just a coincidence

This text comes up in every single match you play now.

The gameplay isn't affected but the text spam is really annoying.

i played like 10 matches today and it came up everytime.

I'm surprised it's still being played. Still sucks @#$holes can't let gamers game, my condolences if this gets anyone.

Why wouldn't it be? It's a Call of Duty title, of course people are going to still be playing. Look at Call of Duty 4, because that there is a prime example of dedication from fans, who appreciate a great game and a great online experience.

Unlike many, some people looked past the faults and continued to enjoy the game. That is one of many things that defines a true gamer. They didn't quit because so and so was cheating, or because their game was lagging.

And finally, for the week of April 11, Modern Warfare 2 was ranked second on Xbox LIVE.

Not bad for a game that "sucks", is it? ;)

Personal opinion buddy...ever heard of it? When I said it still sucks I was reffering to having your game messed with but rage on sport. Oh and Xbox live traffic can't prove something is good it proves something is popular. C'mon son GTFO w that BS.

there not unbanning any 360 holy ass masters are there any honest ppl left in the world????

Because tens of thousands of people, including well respected members amongst the modding scene, are going to lie about their banned console coming back online for a short period of time.

Where in fact, Stepto can lie, simply because he has to help convince millions of customers that there is no error on their end.

not a 360 owner, however my brother owns one and DID have trouble signing in to LIVE earlier, Now, he cannot sign in.
The problem is, he hasn't given any info to anyone.
Hope this gets resolved soon or the problem is addressed thoroughly.

That link of the screenshot is nothing to do with phishing. It's a simple mod, which has somewhat ruined Modern Warfare 2 again.

IMChampion2730d ago

MW2 was ruined upon release.
