The PlayStation Network has earneditself a reputation as being quite friendly to hackers and cheaters, but Guerrilla doesn't intend to give them quite so warm a welcome in Killzone 3.
"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," said producer Steven Ter Heide. "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, ‘Okay, 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."
Sounds good to me. While they're at it, let's get a patch to keep PlayStation Move users on their own server. Using that thing is more or less cheating, really.
