MS bans Modern Warfare 2 glitchers, Sony not bothered

Glitching in Modern Warfare 2? Make sure you do it on the PS3, because Sony isn't really concerned. Do it on the Xbox 360, however, and Microsoft will slap your account with a temporary ban.

The "javelin glitch" is a new exploit discovered in Modern Warfare 2 that allows players to essentially become a human bomb by using a piece of equipment in a way it is not meant to be used. Xbox Live's Stephen Toulouse told everyone to "play fair" and warned that violators will be suspended.

Meanwhile, Sony has stated that it will not take Microsoft's lead while Infinity Ward works on patching out the exploit. No reasons were given for Sony's inaction, a rep merely stated: "I don't believe we are banning people for using the glitch."

Interesting that Microsoft would be so keen to work with Infinity Ward, while Sony doesn't seem bothered. Perhaps a statement on the closer relationship Infinity Ward has with Xbox Live? Sony really ought to work on those relations if it wants PSN to be a viable competitor.
