Bungie Lays Down The Law On 15,000 Halo Reach Cheaters

Take that, hackers!

Bungie Lays Down The Law On 15,000 Halo Reach Cheaters
 
 

If you cheat, you will get caught. That's the message Bungie wants to send to anyone and everyone who plays Halo: Reach.

The developer has just pulled credits from thousands of players who "egregiously" exploited a glitch in the game that artificially inflated the number of credits they had.

"Specifically, we targeted an exploit that allowed players to complete a Challenge 20+ times via itentional [sic] network manipulation (i.e., disconnects)," wrote Bungie on its website.

The company did not specify exactly what the glitch was, but it shows a real crackdown from Bungie on people who manipulate the game in a way that makes it unfair to other players.

This comes just a couple months after Microsoft banned the Xbox Live accounts of people who illegitimately obtained a pre-release copy of the game.

Clearly, the guys behind the scenes at Halo Reach are making game legitimacy a real concern. So if you really want to gain an illegal advantage in a game, go do it on something that has no policing. Like Uno.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
