Buttons in clantag AFTER patch

It looks as if the "buttons in clantag" epidemic that first plagued MW3 after it's release is back, even though the glitch was reportedly patched by Infinity Ward.

PS3

The fact that all of this is happening after the initial patch will surely piss people off.

If reports are true, this is happening on both the XBox 360 and the PS3.

How are they doing this?

This time, the hack/glitch isn't achieved via entering special characters into the clantag. Instead, the user downloads an external file gpd file that is injected into the user's XBox profile. My guess is that a similar route is taken on the PS3. My advice is not to try and do this as IW will ban anyone that is found to have buttons in their clantag. Is having an X or an O in your clantag really worth being banned? Also, the fact that an external hack is involved means that you are at risk of being banned by XBox Live, as it clearly breaches their terms of service.

When will Terminal be released for PS3?

UPDATE: Terminal is coming to PS3 Elite members on August the 14th. It will be available to all regular PS3 members on the 15th of August.

Terminal, a popular map from MW2, will be released for MW3 (XBox) on the 17th of July. I'm sure that MW3 players will be happy to hear that the map pack will be completely free for everyone.

On the 17th, the map will be released for Elite subscribers on the XBox 360. On the 18th, it will be released for non-Elite subscribers.

Terminal MW3

From what I've seen so far, the map will have a few minor cosmetic changes. For instance, the bookstore seems to have been turned into some sort of electronics store.

The question now is: When will Terminal be released for PS3 and PC? Does the deal that Microsoft have with Activision affect free DLC? My guess is that the PS3 and PC will get it at the end of July or in mid-August.
