Major Nelson reports on his blog, that those of you who have tampered with your game saves, thus artificially boosting your Gamerscore, will be met with a rather depressing sight next time you log on to live.

“Today we took action on some of the accounts we have identified as the most serious offenders who have violated the Xbox LIVE Terms of Use by tampering with their Gamerscore and Achievements.” He writes. “The steps today takes the form of the following:

  • Resetting the entire Gamerscore for an account to zero
  • The account will be unable to regain all previously obtained achievements and Gamerscore, however, the players will have the ability to gain future Achievements by earning them fairly, like the majority of the Xbox LIVE community does.
  • The account will be clearly labeled as a cheater for the community to view on”

That’ll learn ‘em.
