"I have a duty to the public who are worried about this," says judge.

Teenage hacker Adam Mudd has been sentenced to two years in prison after creating software used to hack businesses such as Microsoft and Sony.
Instead of the normal 10 to 20 years for DDoS hacker, this one only got 2 years, as lesson for others, because of his young age, his bullying at school, and the fact he was doing it to gain 'friendship status' among others, instead of doing it to really earn money!
Play Playstation 1 (PSX), Playstation Portable (PSP), Nintendo 64 (N64) and Game Boy family (GBA) emulators on Xbox One!

A group of loyal Xbox fans have gotten together and formed a site dedicated to porting emulators for Xbox One and that kind of thing over for all to enjoy side-loading into their Xbox One console, without fear of Microsoft removing them from usage!

There been a number of good emulators produced for the Xbox One, but Microsoft has pulled them from the store.

But now Wiired24 has written up a series of tutorials that shows you how you can still keep enjoying them after they are gone!
He has even managed to get together some .appx files for those that have not gotten them already on their HDD's for when they were available, sadly most tutorials require you to at least spend $19 for an Xbox One developer account before you can install the .appx versions of the pulled emulators, but at least for now it seems to be solid way to keep enjoying apps that Microsoft has removed.

With the new Xbox Live Creators Program, the Xbox One console is “now an open platform for publishing”!

Microsoft is giving game developers a new way to bring their games to Xbox One and Windows 10. At the Game Developers Conference today, the company announced the Xbox Live Creators Program, a new initiative that will bring “fully open game publishing” to Xbox One.
At the GDC 2017 conference this week, Microsoft made a big announcement for their Xbox One console, basically now anyone that owns one can release a game for it, just by creating it in the UWP system, and uploading it to the new special section of the store, with a small fee ranging from $20 to $100, but no costly SDK or devkit needed, and no huge pile of NDA papers to sign your life away with, and Microsoft claims this will basically bring back the openness that home computers had in the early 80's, when you could just...
From the days of Original Xbox Soft-Modding, using 'Bert & Ernie' modded fonts, and Krazyie's NDURE Installer

Time to dig out your old big bulky original Xbox console, and see if you can locate your original disc for '007: Agent Under Fire', 'Mech Assault' or 'Splinter Cell' and remember how you use to 'soft-mod' your video gaming machine in a few easy and fool-proof steps.
But before it all become easy with Krazyie's error-free, crash-proof, fool-proof NDURE Installer, there was alot of development steps in the Xbox scene, and one of the major ones was figuring out how to get 'dual-boot' and then 'tri-boot' to work using the 'Bert & Ernie' fonts, where you could load up different 'dashboards', like for example Open Empty Tray for 'Original Go Live Microsoft Mode', or Closed Empty Tray for 'UnLeashX' or 'Tray with DISC Inside' to load up Linux or something else special, and now some kind...
Over 2.5 Million Gamers’ Accounts Now Leaked Online!

Two popular gaming forums 'XBOX360 ISO' and 'PSP ISO' were hacked back in 2015, and all account passwords, email addresses and IP addresses were all just recently exposed and of course forum users are advised to change all of their accounts' passwords asap!
These two hacks occurred almost a month ago, but now the 'databases' have been made public and added online to various 'pwned' sites, and other forum sites like here on MaxConsole and GBATemp have seen a major rise in illegal login attempts of using the now decrypted leaked passwords on similar gamer nick logins, so remember if you have a BAD HABIT of using 'same passwords' on multiple sites, PLEASE STOP DOING THAT and CHANGE THEM right away!
Demonstrating Java Homebrew running on native unmodded PlayStation 3 console, thanks to its BD-J support!

Ukko’s Journey was originally a cellphone game developed by LuBlu Entertainment in 2008-2009, but recently they have been porting it over to Blu-Ray Disc Java (BD-J) format as 'Proof-Of-Concept' that is possible to have good Java games running on our gaming consoles!
Interactive Discs have been around for a while, it all started long time ago back with 'laser discs' those big 12" costly suckers that were easy damaged and we had a few interactive games on it, then 3DO and Panasonic come along making it better with their direct CDi format and we saw much better games and even electronic encyclopedias were born back then, but in today's generation of gaming consoles buried in them is the support for Blu-Ray Disc Java (BD-J) and even tho it has the power to handle simple games,...

If anyone in your house plans to do some online multiplayer gaming during the holidays, here's a heads-up. Hackers have issued a threat to knock both Xbox Live and Sony's PlayStation Network offline.
Well as usual, the legit gamers wishing to play will be battling it out with those nasty hackers that wish to make gaming over the holidays an horrible experience for some reason that does nothing but hurt the innocent gamer at home, with the big corporations not caring at all that their networks go down almost like clockwork every year, which is easy to do since they already at the max. limits with all that at-home on holiday gamers trying to enjoy their xmas break with a few relaxing hours playing GTA or CoD or FFIV, etc.
Kinda sorta

Emulators are all the rage these days thanks in part to renewed interest in retro consoles like the NES classic – but a YouTuber named Huaining ITC., Ltd is going a step further by showing off a working PSP emulator on an Xbox One.
Ever since Microsoft decided to allow their Xbox One console to run sandboxed Windows 10 apps from their native gaming dashboard, developers have been pushing the limits to see how far they can go, and what Xbox Live will end up approving for usage, and this time around a PSP emulator has been able to slide over to the Xbox One, but it does not play too well so far, very slow and only one game!
Update to the Replacement DashBoard for Modded Xbox 360 Consoles

After what seems like a very long long time, Phoenix has returned and the developers have finally released their version 0.6b of Aurora replacement dashboard for those that love to replace the crappy Microsoft X360 look, with tons of custom features and tools!

Well, this is a surprise, first we had Microsoft updating their console dashboard, and then we had the new XeBuild's and DashLaunch's released, and now bang out of no where the Phoenix raises from its ashes and produces an amazing update to its Aurora replacement dashboard, with a ton of changes and improvements, so many that you have to visit the official site linked below to see all of it! :)

xeBuild v1.18 and DashLaunch v3.18 with GUI to follow up shortly!

Surprising enough Microsoft rolled out a new Dash for their old aging Xbox 360 consoles, but it didn't take long for Swizzy and his team (deep3r, cOz, ikari) to roll out a new set of xeBuild and DashLaunch to get everyone up to speed on using RGH on the latest Xbox 360 dashboard.

@modrobert writes: "The RGH/JTAG related hack tools with support for Xbox360 kernel 2.0.17511.0 (latest) have been released, say hello to xeBuild, xeBuild GUI and Dash Launch. As of posting this Swizzy is still working on xeBuild GUI, but it will show up after release. Could this be the last kernel update for Xbox 360? Happy to see the #xbins FTP server is still going strong!"

Warez group TRSI promises PS4 piracy is “getting close”

Popular warez group TRSI announced in one of their Vita releases today that “its” [sic] getting close, talking about PS4 and Xbox One pirate iso releases.

There been tons of things occurring in the scene world recently, alot of PS4 news, and Wii U news, but now finally one of top 'scene warez' groups, and one of first to release an fully decrypted PS4 game (even tho, we can't run it yet), has been dropping hints in their recent .NFO files for game dumps, and their most recent one has a tiny bit of clue in those waiting for full-fledged PS4 Jailbreak that does more than just Linux, and Homebrew, the Holy Grail of playing (cough) backups of retail games without needing an original disc.
