counterpoint:

it is shared knowledge on internet forums and sometimes on youtube, how to hack this and previous COD titles. this is why there is a prevalence of people doing it. if one where smart enough, all they had to know is what is being changed and counter it. not withstanding, would be someone countering that fix. but its something.

and can you make your counterfix without creating new problems? are you sure your not making things worse? Like I said, it takes time to find the appropriate fix

im not advocating that its easy. im simply saying that the hack is common knowledge. therefor the road is clearly marked. there is no troubleshooting needed to identify what areas are of concern. its not some unknown. its just code. old code thats been around forever. trust me, i work in a support environment, i see break/fix all the time. every day. i know how fast problems can be identified and fixed. much faster than activision. by far.

Re: Invisible People

Sorry but game coding is not that simple. One minor change in the game code can have disastrous effects. You cant just wipe it with a cloth and be done with it.

Every time a game is hacked the forums are full of people crying "hackers are everywhere". Well you got many ways to combat it. One way is to wait and just not play. There are MANY other games out there. XBL has been out there for at least 9 years, I am sure you own at least one other game.

Say there is a large amount of robberies in your area. It takes TIME to catch those doing it. But in the mean time what is the best thing for YOU to do ? Take precautions and not go out, change your habits, lock yourself in your room, whatever. Then let the people who take care of these problems take care of it.

Sure you have a right to go outside, just like you have a right to play this game. But if you dont take precautions to protect yourself then dont complain you just got robbed.

You also have to consider that NOW the Xbox 360 has become the red headed step child, so dont expect miracles.

And BTW Microsoft still has to approve the fix before they can release it. So they cant just go and "fix it". Some game fixes can take up to 5 weeks before released.

you last sentence sums it up.

because with the proper man power, anything can be done. everything else is an excuse. i cant imagine what my customers would think if my company didn't roll out a hotfix for a fundamentally flawed issue in our software(enterprise disaster recovery product from a major vendor). we would be dropped very fast.

but it is not the case in this arena for various other reasons im sure.

so we will see the slow demise of the COD franchise because people will find it unacceptable that the product they by is not properly thought out. this just makes the company look like a joke when it cannot properly learn from past mistakes and create new software that has revisions to remove old issues. instead it is just a mask on a tired old face.

Re: Invisible People

I changed my post. But SOMEWHERE on this forum, yesterday I think, I made a really good post that honestly sums it up.

Look here down at "well you look at it this way"

Re: There is absolutely no excuse

WE are to blame. If WE didnt buy their product then we wouldnt have to worry about hackers.

IW failed miserably about 4 years ago yet here we are still buying their product.

Oh and customers buy fundamentally flawed products everyday. And they still keep buying them.

Give you an example. The perfect binder that Fedex bought from this manufacturer breaks down at least once a week. More like every other day. 15 years later they still are leasing the same machine, it still breaks down .

give you another example. The PSN servers and customers credit cards got hacked. PSN was down for a month and Sony didnt tell customers that their credit card accounts had been accessed for almost a month after that. Yet the PS4 still outsold the ONE.
