Arrest him, I want to see what he's collected...you know if he's not bluffing. Maybe all the horrible stuff from their reveal could just be the tip of the iceberg #1
Arai  +   578d ago
We'll know in 9 1/2 hours, according to his tweet.

Awesome

If this is some good juicy stuff like the article says then I hope to god it spills the beans on Microsoft's horrible plans for the Xbox One. Least then we'll get a heads up before E3.

This is just too delicious. It's like M$ is having a nightmare within a nightmare and they can't wake up. This is turning out much worse than they could have possibly imagined. I can't wait till he releases this stuff.

I think it is about sth related to Kinect always wacthing you that Microsoft doesn't want people to know about. Imagine the Kinect scanning your room and identifiyng each of your goods, someday when you can't pay for the Live, the FBI will just knock on your door and confiscate your valuable items. /s

From Neogaf: http://www.neogaf.com/forum...

"-Basically anything bad about the Xbone was refuted and attributed to the PS4

So basically, his Twitter record is terrible, but the info he gave Kotaku ended up being pretty legit. So I don't know what to think."

That's if no one gets to him first.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   578d ago
He got bailed, nothing to see here folks, move along...

But on the bright side, I don't feel bad for all the waiting and no reward, at least this neogaf session gave me laughter of the year (really, had not felt my ribs aching so much in a long time):

GUY 1: I don't know what he have, but quite frankly, how worse can it get for MS?

GUY 2: XBONE IS PEOPLE!
SexyGamerDude  +   578d ago
It might not even happen. He is being investigated by the FBI. All they have to do is get his Twitter account suspended.
Skate-AK  +   578d ago
If you read his tweets he has a back up plan for if that happens.
syphon32  +   577d ago
The twitter account is a misdirection, by saying its twitter, they'll be looking there instead of where the real leak is coming from. At least thats how i would do it.

For some reason Im thinking of Sean Connery in The Rock.
rainslacker  +   578d ago
I say arrest him because there was merit to have him arrested. You can't allow people to hold the justice system for ransom. The courts themselves won't care. The deed is done, and I think this goes beyond a civil trial, so even MS couldn't say "don't arrest him".

I'm interested in the files myself, but I don't respect him for what he's doing, and don't believe anyone should make him into a hero for this.
fermcr  +   578d ago
There are people that think this guy's a hero, but he should be in prison. He's blackmailing a company and the justice system, and guess what!!! that's illegal (don't matter what company it is). Everybody knows who he is and sooner or later he's going to prison.

hope doesnt get busted as a fellow aussie i think its attrocious how ms are treating this
ziggurcat  +   578d ago
as an individual, you can't legally have a devkit whether it be MS, sony or nintendo. even if you do somehow get your hands on one, it's still the legal property of the company, so you cannot just go sell it on ebay and expect them to just shrug their shoulders.

him simply having a devkit was illegal, and him trying to sell it on ebay just made things worse.

Not long now

WOW. This could get really interesting if this happens. This is more pure entertainment than that "watercooler" could ever bring me.

How can somebody so smart be so stupid
SexyGamerDude  +   578d ago
My question also. First, why are you announcing this? It would have been easier If he just let the information leak. The FBI can easily get his twitter account suspended or take the server. Second, why was he trying to sell this stuff on EBay where it's visual to everybody and anybody?
Cryptcuzz  +   578d ago
Yeah that is true. Only reason I can think of so far is trying to bluff MS from dropping the charges or cut him a deal that's less harsh if he agrees to not leak those "juicy details"
NateCole  +   578d ago
Its a threat to MS and the police. Arrest me and the information is out. It's not a threat if those you want to threat don't know about it.

I am sure he has made other arrangements to get the info out. I know i would. Always have a backup plan.
izumo_lee  +   578d ago
Maybe finally someone will be able to answer the questions that Microsoft has failed to resolve. If this guy can uncover Microsoft's plan about 'used games', always online, Kinect spying, & other issues that Microsoft has dodged than all the power to him.

People shouldn't have to wait til E3 to get answers on these subjects.
rainslacker  +   578d ago
Those seem like policy issues that he wouldn't have access to with just a dev kit. OTOH, there were leaks about all this stuff before the reveal from apparently dev sources, so maybe the information is readily available.
supremacy  +   578d ago
At this point in time, nothing would surprise me really.
For his sake however, he better hope he has something worth leaking or otherwise he is going to have a tough time from here on out.

I know what you mean. The last week has been surreal.

I mean the guy has a Deadmans switch. This is bizarre.

MS are ringing the feds right now and saying, You know that guy we got you to arrest the other month, well leave him alone now.
strigoi814  +   578d ago
Yup arrest him lets see what is he really gonna expose
Thirty3Three  +   578d ago
I really hope he doesn't get arrested. Poor guy.

All he did was try to sell the thing on eBay. Maybe he didn't know it was against the law? I know I didn't.

I mean, one of two thing are bound to happen:

A) A teen gets arrested (C'mon guys, it's really sad...)
B) We get information about a console which we'll already get in months anyway.

In my opinion, it sounds really greedy, at least to me, that many here would rather this guy get ARRESTED, than wait only a few months to get the details.

C'mon guys. We're talking about a human being here!

EDIT:

@whoyouowit04

... I'm a Sony Fanboy. (Yes, I can admit that.) I don't care about console information. I just don't want to see this poor kid spend a very long time (Or his entire life?) in jail.
And for your information, not only Sony "Fanboys" are wishing for this. Your comment alone, shows your ignorance.

You don't think it's illegal to sell an item that wasn't even announced? You think MS didn't get him to sign an NDA? He sure as hell knew what he was doing was illegal.
whoyouwit04  +   578d ago
I do know why everyone is assuming Microsoft is the only company that would be affected by this. He also said he had info on the PS4 as well. well here is a link for proof for you Sony fans who apparently had your head to far up sony ass to even know that this guy also had 90 pages of info on the PS4.

Did u even read that link you posted, aside from being from Kotaku, its just the leaked specs, (wich were pretty accurate), nowhere it says that this guys has something bad on Sony's plans for the ps4.
Actually its gives more credibility about the info he has wich could be right.

Because it's a matter of National Security.

It's like...a dog shitting out shit. And won't stop shitting. And just when you think he's shit enough, you bring him in the house, and he shits on the floor. But wait, as you're cleaning up the shit on the floor, you see him shitting again on the couch. And just when you finally clean the shit off the couch, you find shit in your bed. And finally Once you try to wash your sheets, you find shit in the washing machine.

First consumer backlash, then media backlash, then developers speaking out, then Governments getting involved, and now this! Man this is getting exciting, this is way more interesting than anything on TV.
RegorL  +   578d ago
How did he get the devkit in the first place?

From MS, did he sign all required legal documents?

If he bought it himself second hand he can possibly be accused on being a receiver of stolen property.

Regarding his treats to leak, anything he leak but hardware information can easily be countered by Microsoft. "We talked about that at that time, but it was a bad idea and was scrapped moths ago"

I am intrigued. Can't tell if this is a bluff, a stupid stunt or the real deal. All I know is that for now, he got my attention.

Update: Just read on his Tweeter that he got bailed. So I guess we are not getting info on those "juicy files". Well, it was fun to think about it.

Oh man I hope this stuff leaks. We've never really had this kind of transparency. There could well be so much deception behind many consoles- i.e. MS could have previously made the XboxOne non-functional without an internet connection but changed it last-minute due to fan backlash, before pretending it was never the case. If that turned out to be true, it'd set a major example, game companies would have to be more accountable and we wouldn't get effed over as much. We need to expose the lies behind marketing and advertising- they're culturally toxic.

Also, the documents could contain features yet to be announced by MS- possibly disagreeable ones. I'm not anti-MS btw, but this console is a disgrace- there's no two ways about it.

LOL! This is better than an Arturo Perez Reverte novel!

This kid rocks!

The police can never stop an evil genius or a genius who sticks to his/her guns.

Microsoft is going to have to drop the charges or have their corporate favors cashed in to protect this info.

Lets see if they wanna play hardball (grabs popcorn)
Cryptcuzz  +   574d ago
Is there an update on this matter? Was his bluff called, was anything leaked since then?

I am curious how this has unfolded.
