Hammer Comes Down On Xbox Live Cheaters

We all hate cheaters don’t we? We all like to have a good laugh at someone when they get busted right? Its funny cause it’s not me is a great saying. Well Microsoft is giving us two awesome things then. They are cracking down on cheaters or those who tamper with their Gamerscore and Achievements. How they are cracking down is listed below, but the best part is the sample they gave of how the account will be labeled on their community pages and the in dash views. I almost cried laugh at first. The above image is what they sampled on the site. Here’s what was stated on the site.

The steps today takes the form of the following:

  • Resetting the entire Gamerscore for an account to zero.
  • The account will be unable to regain all previously obtained achievements and Gamerscore, however, the players will have the ability to gain future Achievements by earning them fairly, like the majority of the Xbox LIVE community does.
  • The account will be clearly labeled as a cheater for the community to view on You can see an example here. In dash, the personal view of the gamercard will be labeled as well.

Xbox LIVE remains committed to keeping the service free of cheating in order to maintain a fair and level playing field for everyone.

And with that I leave you for now with this great motivational poster. It seems to fit, if you get the term used. πŸ™‚
