New consoles are on the horizon...and surely hacks will follow!
« on: November 11, 2006, 12:45:41 am »
With the new consoles just in time for the holiday season, I was thinking..."I bet it won't take long for 'em to be hacked...I wonder how long?".  So, I got to thinking about this...and, in my oppinion it'll be within the year.  A matter of months or less seems a bit speedy, but it's hard to say.  Wadda U think?



[00:48] <@FyberOptic> time to download 5790 spams
[00:49] <@FyberOptic> what a sad place the internet is to deliver so much useless data
[00:52] <@FyberOptic> 5790 porns would be such a much better use, for example

The 360 was running pirated/backup games in no time, so I'm sure these will be before too long just the same.

I'm almost sure someone has already pre-ordered one with the sole intent of hacking the system. Besides, it should be dead easy to hack the Wii, considering it's internet-compatible.

Developer kits are already in the wild, so I wouldn't be surprised if someone out there isn't already working on one, in fact!

They'll just look at the box and instantly hack it with their mind, so it seems like it was that way from the factory.

The seeds that grew into the trees that were made into the pencils that were used to make the original design sketches were hacked.
