Cheat In KZ2, Lose Your PSN ID?
This is what we like to see: a no tolerance policy for cheaters. They can all go suck a lemon.
Now, if you're one of those losers who can't find a way to compete without cheating online, and your next target is the honest Killzone 2 players, you may want to rethink the idea. Guerilla's latest Twitter update is a huge warning to all the lamers out there- if you cheat, you're liable to lose your PSN ID. We're not entirely sure how this is going to work, but it seems perfectly clear that Guerilla doesn't want the KZ2 online experience ruined by cheating. This may be the start of publishers and developers banging the gavel more often when it comes to the rule-breakers, because there's a very vocal set of gamers who absolutely abhor cheaters. They ruin a perfectly good online multiplayer experience and when it comes to a game like KZ2, that's just sacrilege. So expect to see harsher punishments like this in the future, and in our opinion, they couldn't possibly be harsh enough. Just...get...out.
We'll let you know when Guerilla drops their new list of policies and punishments, but we imagine it'll be pretty simple: don't cheat, or you're gone. We seriously doubt that most real gamers will disagree with this philosophy.
