Treyarch Says You “Better Think Twice Before You Glitch” in Black Ops
Just days after Activision and Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops release, gamers have already been exploiting the game through glitches. Now, the game’s multiplayer design director has given a response and a warning to the glitchers.
David Vonderhaar stated on the Black Ops forum:
“Some are people using old dashboards or old versions of the game. Others are reproducible issues that we will hotfix or patch just like we said we would. In essence, we likely know more about it than you do from watching a video on Vimeo or YouTube. What many of these people want is to be Internet nerd famous. I’m not going to make them famous and you shouldn’t either. Internet hysteria from normal people is exactly what they want and that’s how many people reacted today. You gave them exactly what they want.
I’m not going to talk about it publicly. We are disinterested in making mini-celebrities out of douche-bags. You better think twice before you glitch. You never know who in your game doesn’t like glitchers who reports you and saves the game in their File Share and tells us about it.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops released on Tuesday. Expect PlayStation LifeStyle’s review of the shooter soon.
