Ok so how has anyone been banned for like doing glitches and shit in private matches and no bans for cfw right, but what about playing a clean backup online and using the dns trick?

Oh please, those people claiming they did nothing wrong and don't know why they were banned knew exactly what they were doing. Convenient excuses like "I loaned my PS3 to a friend, he did it" are hardly plausible after that excuse has been heard multiple times.

No one on CFW is getting banned. Only Cheaters... The servers track every single match you have played and if your XP doesn't match their data then you get BANNED. Simple as that people.

Can't you see the master server keeps record of EVERYTHING can compare savedata and stuff!!

I been in CFW playing COD every single day and no Banhammer here

That's the most interesting bit of this news, it looks like Sony are still reluctant to PSN ban consoles as treyarch had to implement the ban themselves to keep their game clean.

They warned that glitchers and cheaters would be banned from the game and now it happened.

Kids, this is what happens when you cheat with online multiplayer. Let this be a lesson and be glad it's not a PSN ban.
