Don't just ban fix the PROBLEM!!

Over and over again I am putting in a game only to find out it has been hacked.  First it was cod 4, I can barely play that game without getting prestige invites or people putting obscene words across the screen.  Waw is the same.  Mw2 has boosting, infected lobby's, and prestige lobby's. And now Mw3 is infested with hackers infecting lobby's and resetting peoples rank.  Now I know your going to say if you don't except an invite you have nothing to worry.  You are wrong, It does not happen very often but I do get put into hacked 10th lobby's in mw2, and waw.  I can be sitting in a lobby waiting for the match to start and people jump in the game starts and what do you know its hacked.  The game is over in 10 seconds with one guy getting one kill.  In the lobby the guy goes from 1 to 70 then prestige.  I back out report and move on but you do not have to accept an invite to be put into a hacked lobby.

Now I am finding other games with people randomly resetting people's rank.  I play farcry 2 and it happens their too.  Now I am smart enough to back out and to date have not gotten my rank reset in any game.  But this is your system Microsoft, I pay for yearly service so you can update and fix concerns.  I know your going to say it's the game developer's fault but I know that people are buying cables made to connect your xbox 360 to a computer to hack into them.  So I say find out how to counter this because a lot of us loyal xbox live users like myself are getting tired of the hacking and If it can't be fixed then I would rather have free ps3 service then pay for a hacked system.

I would also like to add that this is a security issue, if people can do things like reset your rank, then they could potentially hack your account.  I have a relative who had this happen, he had no idea the first week or so because he did not get online, but in the meantime the hacker took his credit card number and began to purchase items on it.  So it's not just a rank resetting issue.  

Its been said time and time again. It's all on the developers to take care of thier games.

That's a bunch of hooplaa.  If the console is being hacked via a cable then it's an xbox 360 problem in conjunction with the developers.

If the developers can make it so the code can't hack the game, there we go.

They release a $60 dollar patch every year.

I think both the dev and MS should take the blame. If developers are creating games that pose a threat to the consumers, shouldn't MS be making them fix it?

How about Halo: Reach and Battlefield 3. They both have tons of players and the ammount of them that actually hack are so small you may never run into them. It's totally possible for devlopers to handle it themselves.

Good points SubZero. There's not much we can do about it though besides reporting and moving on. CoD4 and WaW are long gone by the way. They can't be fixed anymore, this is fact. MW2 was fine imo, not as bad as the previous 2. Blops is perfect and had no hacking issues or whatever. MW3 I've seen some weird aimbot that allowed the guy to have flawless aim and no recoil. Other than that, it has been playing fine for me.

MW2 was not fine, at all. I stopped playing it before the sequel came out and I ran into Jtags and modders frequently enough to make me give up and sell it. It also made me decide to never buy a COD again. Both developers are bad and couldn't care less about customer satisfaction.

I wouldn't really know cause I jumped on MW2 like half a year after it came out and I didn't really have that many issues like you. Treyarch started to care by the way. Sure WaW went downhill but Black Ops is actually supported and I was very satisfied with it. It's the reason I still play it today.
