Killzone 3 Devs Launching Guerrilla Warfare (see what I did there!) on PS3 Hackers

With the recent root key cracking we have seen what hackers have been doing to the  PS3 in a scene reminiscent of South Park’s Indiana Jones rape episode (The China Probrem, Season 12, excellent episode!). Guerrilla, the developers of Killzone 3, have said they will be keeping an eye on the leaderboards for any suspicious activity.

Steven Ter Heide from an interview with CVG:

“The ability for one person to ruin people’s games is not a good prospect obviously, so we’re working with Sony on the moderation side”.

“We’re looking at people misbehaving, being able to follow reports against those so that’s all been taken care of – and we’re working with Sony to see, even more aggressively, what kind of things are happening.

“But at the same time we have to step up as developers and say, ‘OK what are the holes in our game, what is the data, can we analyse that and see where the problems might be?’

“We can look at the leaderboards and the stats that most people are playing with and say, ‘This doesn’t look right. Can we look into that and see what’s happening?’ That’s the reality now, we have to keep patching the game to make sure we keep getting one over the hackers.”

Lets hope they can keep the cheating scum at bay.

    Its already started. i played this morning with a guy who said he was using a program of some sort that made him invincible and i got an email from PS and they said report anyone that you are aware of that hacks. his K/D was 45-0. No one on KZ does that idc how good you are. i checked his PSN tag later and it said he didnt exist

    You must have to be a special sort of dickhead to do shit like that. I’ll be keeping a pen and paper handy beside me while playing KZ3 and reporting every one of these tools.

    Problem is, they can just go and create a new account for free and start the same shit all over again. I hope the get a bricked console instead of just a banning.

    It’s exactly what we were afraid of when the ‘PS3 cracked’ story first came out. I said it then and I’ll say it now, It was a sad day for all (honest) PS3 owners. It’ll only speed up the release of the the PS4 hitting everyone where it hurts the most – their pockets.

  4. Anthony says:

    Nah Sony already released Info saying PS3 is to successful even with hackers to release the PS4 too early. Sony said PS3 has atleast another 6 years.

  5. Anthony says:

    We might hear the Specs and Details for it but we wont see it live til like 2016 minimum. Which is good cuz that means ill get plenty of use for my ps3. by the time ps4 comes out we might have BF5. Heck I’ll be married and probably be in the Army.

    • Golden says:

      I don’t think it will be as late as 2016. I know Sony said about the 10 year plan thing, but remember, when the ps3 released there was still games being made for the ps2 for a year or so later. I think the same will be true with the ps4, we will have it released but with continued support for the ps3 while they faze it out over a year or two.
