Microsoft Hands Out Stiff Punishment for Gears of War Hackers

Microsoft Hands Out Stiff Punishment for Gears of War Hackers

Hackers beware: Microsoft has begun deleting the Gamerscores of those found to be found to be hacking Gears of War 2.

“As part of our regular safety monitoring we have pinpointed a group of players who have unlocked specific Gears of War 2 Achievements through an unauthorized hack,” writes Xbox spokesman Major Nelson in a recent blog post.

“Deliberate cheats like these are in direct violation of the Xbox Live Terms of Use and will not be tolerated. As I post this, we’ve begun taking steps to reset the Gamerscores of the offending players.” The community – or at least those blog commenters appearing on Major Nelson’s blog – seemingly supports the move, though I can only imagine the anger of the group of hackers.
