Sony’s announced MotorStorm: Arctic Edge and Hot Shots Tennis: Get A Grip are once again available for download on the PS Store now that alterations have been made to deter hackers. In late March, Sony pulled Hot Shots Tennis from the PS Store due an exploit which would allow the use of a homebrew loader on Vita. MotorStorm: Arctic Edge was pulled from the store for the same reason in February. Hopefully, all is fixed proper now. Via Engadget.

Turning the unpredictable, blood-soaked art of modern warfare into a fair — even sportsmanlike — affair sounds like a near-impossible task to us, so it’s no surprise that players are occasionally able to slip illicit tactics under even Infinity Ward’s well-trained nose. Not for long, though — because Infinity Ward knows what exploiters are up to, and is already hard at work on an exploit-busting patch.
“Success! A patch is in the works for PS3 and Xbox 360 to address the recent COD4 exploits. I’ll keep you posted on the progress,” tweeted Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling.
And we’ll keep you posted on Bowling’s keeping you posted.

City of Heroes players who used exploits in the Mission Architect feature to power level their characters may get rewards earned through the dubious act revoked as a punishment.
The possibility of the character being disabled completely is also a possibility.
CoH lead designer Matt “Positron” Miller outlined the consequences over on the official forums:
- Players that have abused the reward system egregiously may lose benefits they have gained – leading up to and perhaps including losing access to the characters power-leveled in this fashion.
- Currently, some badges are being modified, and some may be removed from the game entirely. The list of changes being made to the MA badge system is not final yet, but you will be made aware when we have a concrete plan.
- Players who knowingly use an exploit when creating an arc, run the risk of having access to MA suspended, or worse- depending on the severity of the action, their account banned.
Missions that were created to exploit the system will also be deleted.
