Concealing the group behind this, a developer has allready "hacked" the xbox. Of course the code didn't need to be cracked given that he has access to the development of the xbox360 code. They are assembling a team to develop a chip that will be able to boot the xbox(project code name "hot box"). Unlike the origional XBOX, much more is needed than just a d0 wire to make the xbox 360 boot from the chip; giving other information away would give away how to mod the xbox 360. This would be a mistake on my part by telling information how to given that there is alot of money to be made with the modification of the xbox 360. More information will be given on this topic at a later time. More time and development is needed before this new chip is ready to be produced.
Nice. No links, or any evidence of any sort to back up your claims. Plus, when the 360 is
hacked, you get to come back and point out this post as an example of your prescience.
Here, let me try: a major Democratic or Republican will be elected president in 2008. I can't tell you who, though, because that would give away my sources and change the result of the election.

ya very possible i can see someone saying hey MS i am a good security programmer and would like to help develop secuirty to stop piracy. they finish and xbox 360 is realesed. hey bill it has been fun working with you guys but i would like to leave your company now. now this employee nows every security detail on the 360 down to technical info so he knows how to defeat the security.
he says why work for MS for little salary when i could develop a mod chip and make possibly millions. he leaves MS xbox 360 team knowing all the security deals and builds a mod chip because he knows how to defeat the security. i am sure this always happens. if you design the security than chances are you know how to defeat it. if you are the designer of any product with computers than you know how to exploit it. this si evry realistic what you said. just why no proff. no claims, no pics, no videos no proof. what you said souns realistic but where is the proof you can back this up with.
Two words: nondisclosure agreement. And here's what happened the last time a major MS employee left the campus for their competition: Clicky clicky.
They would definitely not take what you're talking about sitting down, and they'd have the full force of the US Government in the form of industrial espionage laws on their side -- not an ideal foe for a company that's treading dangerously close to illegality to begin with.
