Infinity Ward has promised that the PlayStation 3 version of Modern Warfare 2 -- which has been overrun by hackers -- will be fixed as soon as possible. 

"I just left a security meeting with the coders here at Infinity Ward where we discussed a lot of solutions," said community manager Robert Bowling. "I feel good about the meeting, but of course I can't go into detail on the possible solutions we discussed as we don't want to give out any information that could potentially hinder the security any further.

"... The key factor I want you to know is, that while any update takes time, we are looking to make the process as quick as possible and nothing is being left unattended."

The last time Infinity Ward addressed this issue, the studio stated that the ball was in Sony's court, as the PS3's infrastructure needed fixing. Given that this happened with the first Modern Warfare as well, the PlayStation Network looks like a cheaters paradise. Say what you will about Xbox Live's restrictions, but at least the bad eggs are thrown out pretty swiftly.
