    FBI raids three homes recently, arresting those trading in Xbox One Secrets

    We reported before on SuperDAE story and his Xbox One devkit raids, but now the fallout from that has moved from Australia to state-side, with FBI rounding up three hackers, with one of them being from Canada

    You might remember the SuperDAE stories from over a year ago, with him listing early Xbox One dev-kits up for sale on eBay, and then later him getting arrested, and threatening to release info which never happen, but now the FBI have rounded up some more 'hackers' that were trading in Xbox One devkits, and passing info among themselves.

    [​IMG]

    One of people arrested in New Jersey is better known on many 'scene' forum sites like XboxHacker as 'SonicISO' and was originally the Admin behind the very popular E3-Forums for E3 Flasher and their ODE device before it was suddenly shutdown earlier this year.

    We will keep everyone informed here on MaxConsole UnderGround as more 'court files' are released.

      LOL garyOPA's Engrish skills tend to rear its ugly head from time to time - thanks for pointing that out by the way.

      That bizarre typographical error has been fixed now, so you can now stop poking fun at it for lulz! :p

      Well the FBI claims they copied their first stolen Xbox One devkit, which were early alpha models using a Gateway PC modded basically with hdd loaded up with software, then sold these 'counterfeit' Xbox One's they made on eBay and other buy/sell places like AssemblerGamers for a few thousand each.

      I myself was offered one over a year first for $5,000 with all the info, then the price was lowered to $2,500, and other people also were offered one including even Team-Xecuter, but all the smart people turned down their offers including myself and TX, and for good reason we knew the 'men-in-black' team hired by Microsoft would soon be knocking down the doors of anyone with one, and we were right.

      Apparently (if you had read Gary's last Post), all they did was to take a generic PC (I mean Gateway lol I can't even believe that, they are still 'round!), and install a stolen DevKit Package onto it. Perhaps the original post made it sound more technical, then it actually was. 'Cause I'm sure MicroSoft would have either used its own Hardware, or it would've gone for a more established brand like HP, or Dell.
