Now I know Im a bit new to the 360, but I've been playing COD4 since it came out on the PS3. I have it now thinking it would be a simple 1000GS, however playing multiplayer has me a bit annoyed.

What is the deal with the random messages from people in that game? I get voice messages, text messages and game invites from people I haven't even played with, know or anything. Does it have to do with the game getting hacked? Are these all automated?

They probably just want to play, they aren't modded messages, probably from recent players.

I will be the first recognized gamer on x360a with 200G in Tron when it updates.

Yeah, they're getting your name from their Recent Players list.

Also, something popular with the Modern Warfares was custom gametypes. When I went back to CoD4 early this year, I got a lot of invites to play some "Michael Myers" gametype.

Quickscope and knife-only lobbies are also quite popular.
