Treyarch Sends Warning to Call Of Duty: Black Ops PS3 Glitchers

Sponsored Links
215w ago - Recently some COD Black Ops videos surfaced showing off a 15th Prestige XP and Infinite Care Package hack, and as a result Treyarch COD: Black Ops designer David 'Vahn' Vonderhaar has issued a [Register or Login to view links] warning PS3 glitchers.

To quote: "This is going to be my one and only statement on this topic, so pay attention.

I got Twitbombed today from dozens of people the same 2 links. Some are people using old dashboards or old versions of the game. Others are claiming victory on old dev builds that don't even connect to the version of Xbox Live that you use. Others are reproducible issues that we will hotfix or patch just like we said we would. In essence, we likely know more about it than you do from watching a video on Vimeo or YouTube.

What many of these people want is to be Internet nerd famous. I'm not going to make them famous and you shouldn't either. Internet hysteria from normal people is exactly what they want and that's how many people reacted today. You gave them exactly what they want.

Given the opportunity, I'd personally wield the ban hammer for anyone who thinks he is clever by abusing any glitches. Good think I don't have the opportunity that often and we actually have a constructive, measured, and well-managed live ops team.

We said we would support the game. We are going to support it.

I've gone out of my way using my own limited, personal time to try and get to know about 8000 (and growing) as best I can. The last thing I want is for you to think that because I don't talk about it ... that we don't know or care about it. We didn't spend 2 years of our lives to toss it all in the trash in one day.

I thank all of you who sent in polite, constructive messages without the hysterics.

So here is my one and only public statement about it.

I'm not going to talk about it publicly. We are disinterested in making mini-celebrities out of douche-bags. You better think twice before you glitch. You never know who in your game doesn't like glitchers who reports you and saves the game in their File Share and tells us about it.

Our forum admins and VIPs along with JD_2020 (Community Manager) will be managing the communication directly.

David 'Vahn' Vonderhaar"

Btw: did you guys heard about the PC version?? 50%> has problems with the performance, they didnt even optimize the PC port...

Yes, the same story with all developers actually. Its hard to find good PC ports these days, with almost all PC games being a load of unoptimized which requires your own personal 'supercomputer' to run. Glad I didnt purchase this game, didnt appeal to me anyway. Its all just 'repackaged'.

Seconded. this is one of the great game where its is so good that I will go out and buy it even AFTER I have finished playing it a few times. MGS4 is another example of such game.

i finished the game initially using my housemate's copy of the game and it is so good that i went out and buy a new copy so that after 10 years i can still play them on the other hand, SW: Force Unleashed 2 is an example of games that deserve to be pirated. cheater = loser.

The "Care Package Glitch" video is deleted, here is an other one.

The "XP Glitch" can be found here.

well i guess we know all the people that like to glitch now don't we. i am with the guy on glitching. i hate it and people that do it are douche-bags point blank. they should ban any and all who glitch. it takes away the fun of the game for those that play it for real.
