The Rise of the Video Game Console Cheat Examined

250°
282w ago - Chances are you probably know someone who cheats online. Perhaps you've even strayed to the dark side. Previously the realm of the PC gamer, online cheating seems to have transitioned successfully over to consoles. But can anything be done about it?

When people think of cheating in console video games, often their first thought is of some desperate individual frantically hitting button combos on a controllers in an attempt to unlock some godly weapon combination that will blow the competition out of the water.

Being an avid Xbox 360 gamer, and playing considerable hours online on what I naively thought was a closed platform (and therefore supposedly safe from the abusive traits of a cheater) little did I know that my innocent haven could be disrupted by an unruly force, hell-bent on winning at any cost. It seems that no matter the system, someone always has to ruin the fun for everyone else by exploiting otherwise honest game mechanics.

The problem seems to lie partly in the ranking systems that many games nurture in an effort to encourage players to game long into the night. Some of our gaming fraternity will do anything to achieve that elusive rank. Personally, that's never really been my focus, and perhaps this is why the repulsive behaviour of the few strikes such a chord.

About the band [Register or Login to view links]:

Since forming the band in 2005, this Brighton, U.K. foursome has made its way to #1 on the British charts by gloriously borrowing sounds from some of Brit-pop's biggest legends.





Little wonder they once called themselves "musical whores." The Kooks sophomore LP, Konk, mixes loose-limbed punk riffs, sunny vocal harmonies and singer Luke Pritchard's impossible-to-miss Sussex accent.
