I have read about a couple of tools which allow you to cheat on Call of Duty: Black Ops on a PC. Are such tools also available for PS3 or XBox-360, or can we say that consoles are cheat-proof?

Is anything at all cheat-proof? – badp Jun 22 '11 at 13:38
Are you asking because you want to cheat...? – Wipqozn Jun 24 '11 at 12:49
No, I'm trying to figure out which platform is safer to play. – DouglasJose Jul 8 '11 at 11:37

While hacks are possible, you should be aware that playing online with modded consoles or hacked games is likely to get your account and/or console banned. Microsoft in particular does not look kindly on cheats.

There's been a recent influx of cowards on Wii multiplayer – swasheck Jun 25 '12 at 3:53

At least, "cheating" by using a lag-switch is possible, so this question about lag-witching here wich may be interesting for you: What's the best way to beat a lag switcher?

Consoles are not safe. Even here not so long ago there was question related to X360 BO cheaters: What's the best way to beat a lag switcher?

What makes matter worse, there are no dedicated servers on consoles, thus no server admins, and server kick/bans.
