    Just a week after the launch, the Xbox One has been hacked. They have already managed to dump the console's Nand, meaning they can now look through the new system's OS and security.

    Why so fast? With the previous generation it took much longer to find exploits and unlock the console's, but the new Xbox has one major flaw over the last generation; it's running on x86 architecture and using Windows and DirectX based code, which is very familiar to hackers with 20+ years experience in the PC.

    If the system is unlocked and custom firmware created this could be great news for hardware sales, but not so great for software.

    Full article:

    I wonder how the PS4 will fare in comparison? It again is using the much more familiar x86 architecture, but unlike M$ it isn't using an existing OS codebase so might be more secure. Look how long it took hackers to unlock the PS3.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    I expect so. If so that I will download games for the XBox One and play original PS4 games online.

    Do you remember a while back, I said I didn't have a single Sony device in my home.... I lied. .....My SLR camera is a Sony. - Time for an upgrade methinks.

    Anyone wanna buy a Sony Alpha200?

    Nothing wrong with Sony's Alpha DSLRs. They are the descendants of Minolta after all and I used to love Film SLRs from them. However I would only buy Canon these days.

    Indeed, it is a stunning DSLR camera in every instance & Canon will be the next one I buy for sure.

    Btw, how far are we when it comes to Wii U hacks? Remember hearing something already longer ago, that the Wiikey team had some "key" again, called WiikeŁ. Has there been any progress?
