Activision May Shut Down Black Ops Servers Due to PS3 Jailbreak Cheats [UPDATE]
Well it looks like the worst possible scenario has reared its ugly head. Rampant cheating has been confirmed in both Blacks Ops and Modern Warfare 2 by the devs due to recent PS3 security issues. An Activision rep has been quoted as saying that server closure is a “viable” solution.
One can only worry about the extirpation of future multiplayer games. Will Killzone 3 or Uncharted 3 be dilapidated with cheaters? Will Sony usher in a strong ban hammer? This is evidence that homebrew is a pandora’s box. Especially when cheats are established before any anecdotal evidence of any positive homebrew software.
UPDATE Per JD_2020’s Twitter Account:
PS3 Servers comments were taken out of context. @Treyarch’s committed to supporting the PS3 community with some great updates on the way.
