Robert Bowling von Infinity Ward schiebt im offiziellen Forum in erster Linie Sony den schwarzen Peter zu, da man die Plattform zu schlecht geschützt habe. Man selbst sei deshalb machtlos, sich gegen die Hacker-Angriffe zu wehren, nutze aber alle Möglichkeiten, um das Problem zu minimieren. Zwar begrüße man die regelmäßigen Firmware-Updates seitens Sony und eigene Patches, doch mittlerweile scheinen diese nicht mehr besonders effektiv zu sein.
"Sony has recently acknowledged a breach in security on the PS3 which resulted in games to become exposed to exploits and hacks", meint Bowling. "Modern Warfare 2 is no exception to this security exploit and we understand that some of you have experienced problems with stats and other issues associated with this."
"Games rely on the security of the encryption on the platforms they're played on, therefore; updates to the game through patches will not resolve this problem, unless the security exploit itself is resolved on the platform.
"Regretfully, Call of Duty games are receiving the bulk of the hacker's attention, due to its high player counts and popularity. However, the number of legitimate players severely outweighs the bad apples."
