Wholly owned Activision developer Infinity Ward has released a patch that the studio believes will eliminate the ability to use hacks in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the PS3. An Xbox 360 and PC version of the patch is coming soon, it says.
Players who have had all kinds of problems with online shenanigans welcome the update. The update is also made possible thanks to a firmware update from Sony that dealt with the aftermath of George "GeoHot" Hotz’s jailbreak of the system. That jailbreak opened up the floodgates for unscrupulous individuals who wanted to create online hacks and cheats.
While Infinity Ward says this patch should deal with most of the hacks being used in MW2, its effectiveness at this early hour is unknown. We will let you know if this eliminates the problems as promised or is a wasted effort on IW’s part.
