Microsoft clamps down on cheaters – Gamerscore resets and bans abound

41 second read

Major Nelson has just announced on his blog that the latest wave of gamerscore resets has begun.

This time it seems to be specifically targetted against Gears 2 achievement hacking but by the sound of it you are going to lose all of your gamerscore if you have been caught, the score reset is going to take a bit of time so if you have been hacking the achievements in Gears 2 then you may want to keep an eye on your gamerscore and hope and pray that you scraped through.

I also wouldn’t be surprised if at the same time we start to see the ban hammer come out for pirates and other filthy vermin out there.

    Why would anybody cheat to get a achievement?

    MS must rather ban chipped consoles. I work hard to pay for my games – other people just copy them. If they just realised the time, money, skills and love going into creating a game…

    I’d love to hear if any locals got zero’d. Plus it would be interesting to get opinions on who you think are cheating haxxors. Come on…name and SHAME!!
