Dit las ik net op gamespot:
Microsoft is quietly scanning the hard drives of Xbox Live users to see if they have been modded.
Source: The well-written, skeptical, and sometimes wholly creative Spong.
The official story: “One of the ways Microsoft protects its intellectual property, in this case Xbox, is through the use of innovative technical solutions. We believe technology, in addition to education and awareness, can be effective in protecting publishers’ rights while maintaining a rich product experience for customers–by ensuring the use of genuine hardware and software.” – official Microsoft spokesperson.
What we heard: When we started to hear the far-fetched but fairly numerous reports that Xbox Live users’ hard drives were being remotely scanned by M’soft to see whether they were factory issue or illegally modified, we became curious and just a little paranoid.
Bogus or not bogus?: After additional reads of the Microsoft statement (especially the lead), which began, “As you know, intellectual property is very important to Microsoft,” we knew it was not bogus.
Leuk zo’n xbak
Misschien merk je er niks van ook al heb je een gemodifceerde speelpc.
Maar alleen het idee al dat dit zou kunnen. De arrogantie.
