Causing trouble on Modern Warfare 3 online could lead to a lengthy ban.
It’s emerged that one PS3 gamer has received a message stating a “temporary” ban of 5,000 days – almost 14 years.
Many thought this may be a mistake on developer Infinity Ward’s part, but no. In a post on his personal Twitter page, the studio’s creative strategist Robert Bowling said: “If you see this message, it means you’ve been Permabanned (for something bad).”
What can result in a Modern Warfare 3 ban, you ask?
“Boosting, Cheating, Hacking, Exploiting, Inappropriate behavior (racial slurs, abusive language, etc),” noted Bowling in a later Twitter reply.
So there you go. Enjoy the experience on offer, and don’t be an idiot.
