    Exclamation Microsoft to take legal action against Xbox One leaker

    Uh-oh!

    All the info that was leaked some days ago by ntkrnl could be used to charge him/her for secret revelations


    If you were reading us this week, you may noticed a big news where a supposedly Microsoft insider leaked out plenty of info about Xbox One's future plans such as the new Xbox One White Halo 5, Forza Horizon and so on...

    Now, Microsoft is seeking for legal action against this person as reported by Kotaku. Check it out:

    On top of all that, according to one person familiar with the situation who spoke to me under condition of anonymity, Microsoft is currently trying to track down and identify ntkrnl. According to that person, Microsoft executives are looking to take legal action against ntkrnl, which, again, doesn't mean that everything he says is true.
    What do you think? If the info he/she leaked wasn't true, why is Microsoft seeking for legal action?

    NEWS SOURCE #2: Microsoft Hunt NeoGAF's 'ntkrnl' (via) Stevivor
    NEWS SOURCE #3: Forum Thread #760643 (via) NeoGAF

    Our thanks to 'Kaos2K' for this news item!

    Even if it isn't true, they could consider it dangerous as it could affect people's purchases e.g. if they were buying an Xbone for Halo 5 they might delay the purchase.

    Why if this story is true, Microsoft has not charged him yet.

    It only took my old long-time developer friend just under 2 minutes to figure out whom that is connected with Microsoft is infact the leaker Mr. 'ntkrnl', so it should have taken only a mere few seconds for M$ themselves to connect the dots.
