Hackers have taken the first step towards breaking the anti-piracy system on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 game console. The information has helped the group dig out the raw data from the console for 13 Xbox 360 games.
The crackers have not managed to get the data off game disks, instead they have dug out the version of the game that the Xbox 360 creates when gamers start playing. They said they were releasing the raw data to help other hacking groups start the task of working out how the Xbox 360 tries to stop piracy.
In response Microsoft said its console had several security systems in place that would prevent pirated games being played on it.
