Why do people HACK?

II'm 47 years old and my generation was taught to earn what they get...what's up with these kids hacking? Is it really that much fun. Is it because they are trying to compensate for something? Please enlighten me....

No, I am not kidding. The PS4 (as a system) has not be hacked, therefore players cannot execute cheat programs on the system.

I suspect when you say 'hacks' you really mean 'exploits'. In that case, yes, there are people that exploit. And to answer your question, the reason people exploit (and cheat when they can) is because today's generation have been raised on the premise of instant gratification - maximum return for minimum effort.

If you want to see PS4 hacks, just go on YouTube. Sorry to burst your bubble....

I'd be really interested in knowing how they're doing it...not the specifics just "in general" because the PS4 system is not hacked yet so I am very confused how they are running unauthorized code on it.

PS4 is not hacked (as far as I know) - The COD Loadout system is flawed and supports hackers. Put simply the Loadout (Which is stored on Activision Servers) says what guns perks etc are selected in it. It also has debug features such as wall hack, no clipping, and god mode which can be activated within the Loadout (Just no via the standard interface. BTW this is not new to Ghosts it is in Mw2 and Mw3.

Hackers hack these loadouts on Jailbroken PS3s turning on all perks, mini gun as secondary weapon and debug features then use the same PSN account on PS4 which uses the same loadout from PS3. This brings all the hacks (Debug features) across to PS4.

The first hacked PS4's showed up in the second week of December. Some of these guys make a living doing this (no joke).
