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.”
