Beware the Fake Beta

27 Oct

Modern Warfare is on the verge of release and there are still fanboys out there that are looking for a beta. Keep dreaming boys this isn’t World at War. The most disappointing part about this lack of beta is the fact that there are scammers out there trying to suck in idiots promises of awesome multiplayer action.

Infinity Ward was pretty clear about the fact that there was NOT going to be a beta released to the public. They decided to keep things under wraps and test the game internally. Big fans of the game that are mildly intelligent and able to read got this concept right off the bat. Others willingly gave up their email addresses, Xbox Live accounts, passwords, money, and Microsoft points at the thought of playing the game before everyone else.  

I feel bad for these “victims” for about 5 seconds until I remember that they were the ones who just gave away their private information to whoever had the best offer. Internet sites make you set up accounts with strong passwords for scammers like these ones. Many of these sites, such as Xbox, even tell you that they will never ask you for your personal password. Anyone who tries to pry this information from you is going to use it to steal your identity or send you a virus.

To be clear, there will be no public beta for MW2. Toss any offers of beta codes right in the trash. MW2 will be released soon enough and I’m sure waiting will be better than having your accounts hacked.
