Some of you might remember the story we wrote here on Platform Nation 2 years ago when we talked about how some hackers out there found a way to cheat, hack and boost their Gamerscore and how Microsoft was taking a stand against them. Well Microsoft took a firm stand against them and deleted all of their Gamerscore, prevented them from earning any of those achievements again, and labeled them as a cheater.
Well 2 years later, the same thing now seems to be an issue on the PlayStation 3.
We are talking about hacking trophy, one way save games to conveniently manipulated by a large number of unlockable trophies. Fuel, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and SOCOM: Confrontation are some examples of games using a hacked save game trophies to dolls. Take the movie below, up 45 trophies that geunlockt via FUEL in less than 3 minutes. Where other people see themselves in a sweat appear more hacks to automatically trophies to unlock. And Sony? That still leaves nothing is stirring while these hacks have a good long time. The biggest problem is still that it is already easier to customize and save games so if more games can be cracked soon.

As you saw in the video, it can be done. So the question is, what is Sony going to do? Are they going to ban those cheating/hacking their game saves to boost their trophy counts? Or are they going to take the same approach they took with their Modern Warfare 2 hackers/glitchers and do nothing? I guess only time will tell, we will try to contact Sony to see if we can get any official word on this. Until then though, what would you guys like to see done?
