Sudden Attack

Gamers Facing Legal Action For Using Cheat Programs

Gaming is serious business. Kotaku is reporting that online game company Nexon is pressing charges against three gamers who used cheat programs, claiming obstruction of business. Nexon claims that by using cheat codes in the online first person shooter Sudden Attack, the gamers were hurting both the game and the company. Though cheating in online games is prevalent, this is the first time in Japan that gamers have faced legal action for using cheat programs. One of the gamers is an 18 year old university freshman, another is a 17 year-old vocational school student, and the last is a  17-year-old high school student.

According to Nexon’s press release, the students are being charged with repeated use of illegal tools and programs, as well as distribution of those cheats.

I doubt those three gamers are laughing now, but check out some hilarious examples of players using cheat programs in Sudden Attack below.
