 Autistic Kid With High Gaming Scores Labeled Cheat on Xbox Live

In what could prove to be a major PR disaster for Microsoft, an 11-year old autistic boy from Seattle found all of his achievements on Xbox Live reset and labeled as cheater since his scores were impossibly high.

Julias Jackson spends a lot of his free time on his Xbox with his mother Jennifer Zdenek stating that the gaming console is his main source of interaction after school. Zdenek went on to say that her son can master any game in three or four days and is very good at a number of popular game titles.

However she was shocked to find that her son's achievements screen was reset and he was labeled as a cheater, an accusation that has "devastated" her son. Zdenek revealed that she has contacted Microsoft, asking them to remove the tag of cheater but without any success.

Zdenek said that she will be canceling the Xbox Live subscription from next month unless Microsoft removes the cheater tag though the company has time and again reiterated that his scores were illegally tampered before clarifying that Jackson can continue to earn achievement scores in the future.
