Halo 3: ODST Modder Threatens MS

After the slew of news concerning the leaked Halo 3: ODST achievements and how the brown stuff hit the fan as the video with them was removed from YouTube, it was inevitable that further juice was going to be pummelled from this story.

It emerges that all the furor of the past few days has stemmed from previously unknown modder, Mattyovers. It appears that he found a way to add games to his profile that he hadn’t played and then checked the achievements from there.

Personally, if I was in the crosshairs of MS or Bungie right now, my pad-hand would be quaking uncontrollably. Mattyovers has attempted to cover his back with an ultimatum for the software giant and Halo creators; “the same time kind of worried about what Microsoft will do… if I do get banned I will just leak more achievements.”

Sam Finch

Sam has been unable to peel his bloodshot eyes and RSI-ridden wrists from the world of gaming since he was first introduced to it, like all good junkies, by his Grandad. From those early days of MegaDrive sweetness, bashing through the throngs of enemies on Shining Force II, his love of all things games has extended upwards and outwards onto a variety of platforms. You can either believe that spiel, or get the real scoop and know that his spaceship actually crashed here some years ago and he is currently incognito as a games writer for Console Monster.
