While some game companies are outsourcing QA to the cheapest backwater they can find, Infinity Ward is apparently flying in career glitchers and exploiters to help with this year’s money printer, Modern Warfare 3. “mapMonkeys are a community of gamers who have become infatuated with discovering and sharing glitches, exploits, tricks, and strategies found in the video games they play,” in their own words.
It also turns out this isn’t the first time they answered the call of duty. “We’ve been flown out to test other games in the past […] but we only had 2 or 3 days to test the game and find glitches, which wasn’t nearly enough time,” according to master of understatement Rezzzo. Be sure to hit the link for the awesome rationalization for helping Infinity Ward close the very exploits that created their community. Don’t be too hard on yourselves, guys, anyone would have done the same.
