Fantastic news for all you legit gamerscore whores out there. Thanks to a recent post by Stephen Toulose, Microsoft's official banhammer, we learned that Microsoft is resetting the gamerscore for those who have used a glitch to unlock some of the achievements in Gears of War 2. The post read:

"I’ve been quiet lately because I’ve been heads down on some work stuff. Today my team is issuing Gamerscore resets due to some people cheating up achievements in Gears of War 2. We’re going to be hitting the most egregious offenders first while we investigate the full set of people who have done it. More information on Gamerscore Resets can be found here.

Now, we do this on a periodic basis and I always get asked the same questions because I know a lot of people like to boost, etc. We tend to issue resets for a very clear set of actions that users take to get achievements without even playing the game. So those of you boosters, if you’re not glitching or doing other things in violation of the Terms of Use, don’t worry. Also to be clear, this isn’t any type of bug or issue caused by Gears of War 2, it’s just people cheating their profiles to toggle a specific achievement they didn’t actually earn.

Remember, the best way to avoid a Gamerscore reset is…earn your achievements!"
