Xbox One Game Disc Dumped By Hackers

Videogamescene.com reports that Xbox hacker c4eva has apparently managed to dump the Xbox One version of Call of Duty: Ghosts. The game has not yet hit torrent sites or other pirate channels but we’re sure it won’t be long. Of course, there is still no way to play the game on a retail console. (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Xbox One)

@jjb1981 dude id buy the game 5 times just to support a dev that made a great game. but in case like COD they should be the ones paying me money and supporting me for playing their BS..

Jebe didn't even say if it was okay or not. He just said, actually it's pirating not hacking, yea doofus.
DragonKnight  +   618d ago
Actually it's hacking and THEN pirating. You can't pirate software that doesn't exist anywhere on the net for you to pirate, you first need to dump the software through hacking the copy protection in order to pirate it.

Also, if you don't like CoD why are you playing it?

"I hate Call of Duty, it sucks so bad and is the same sh*t every year. I'm not paying for this garbage, I'm just going to download it and play it every day because it's so awesome that I can't not play it, I just don't want to pay for it because it sucks monkey balls."

That's literally how that "logic" sounds like.

Ummm... It's not hard to get past a certain coding to access game files, if you have the know-how. However, figuring out how to get a pirated copy to work on the console will take quite some time.

I'm quite certain all next-gen consoles have some pretty serious measures to combat piracy.
Roccetarius  +   619d ago
The way both consoles are set up now, i'm pretty sure it won't take long for them to crack it.
Rockefellow  +   619d ago
Are you speaking from experience, or are you just offering up useless conjecture? In my opinion, I seriously doubt either platforms' security measures will be usurped in the near future; it took years for the PS3 to finally get infiltrated, and Microsoft assuredly beefed up their security in response to the rampant and simple 360 hacking.
ChrisW  +   619d ago
Well of course he has no factual basis to support is claim, and he points that out with, "I'm pretty sure..." However, to call his opinion useless would make yours just as useless. After all, you opined about hacking as well and you supported yours with, "I seriously doubt..."

Just to be fair, I used, "I'm quite certain..."

You see, we're all full of opinions.
Scatpants  +   619d ago
They recently figured out a way to make an ODE for PS3 without requiring the drive key. I am guessing they will be able to implement something similar with the PS4 in a much quicker amout of time than it took for the PS3 unless they came up with some way to combat ODEs

@Rockefellow Not if being able to copy over full "Arcade" titles to a USB drive that has been configured for Xbox One is the same as on 360.
Don't forget that when Microsoft introduced the "Install full game to your console" feature in 2008, it was instantly hacked that you didn't need the disc for the game to work. They basically handed that one to the hackers. And Xbox One games install completely to the hard drive with the added "feature" of NOT needing to connect to the Internet at all which was a huge part of their original security plan. We will have to see what happens after it is out.

"Microsoft assuredly beefed up their security in response to the rampant and simple 360 hacking"

A lot of conjecture thrown about. It is true that MS beefed up their security but it was cracked in no time.

Currently, you can still flash any Xbox 360 dvd drive as has been possible since many years ago. And play on Live without getting caught too.
silvacrest  +   618d ago
you might just be right, the x86 architecture, mostly off the self hardware could mean that both consoles are easier to hack simply because the hardware should be very familiar to the hackers

@Khajiit86 @MeteorPanda

Thieves always try to justify stealing, there are some interesting studies on it, you should look them up. Believe it or not everyone has "bills n shyt" doesn't mean you should steal games.
Khajiit86  +   618d ago

There is a study for everything but who cares about that. I most likely buy more games than you and encourage my friends to get a lot of good games as well. If I really like a game I will buy it. I have bought gta 5, fifa 14, nba 2k14, beyond, rayman legends, and battlefield 4 in just the last 2 months. So I do my part for the gaming world.

Stealing is stealing. There is no way to justify it. Those who do it are scum and those who support it are just as pathetic.

The excuse that you have 'bills n shyt' is not acceptable. If you really do have 'bills n shyt', then maybe you should spend less time stealing and gaming, and more time working.


This is an equally unacceptable excuse. If you really wanted to sample the game before committing to a full purchase, then just rent the game.

When I rent a game I finish it. And then the devs have not benefited from me either. Only the company I rented from.

Meh anyway. Laws and stealing are just too narrow to look at the big picture alot of the time.

The only ones I want benefitting from my money are the ones who made the game. I don't care what the government thinks especially the wankers in my country.

What Piracy has led me into is - I buy way more games, I've been introduced to way more devs. For example, the Witcher 2? Pirated it. Then I bought the Enhanced edition. STALKER. Pirated. Eventually bought the first and second game. Killing Floor. Pirated. Bought. The list goes on. These devs, would never have gotten my money or my future support if I didn't get initially pirate them. Piracy for me has been

"Let me look for non mainstream games that are supposed to be good, I don't have the money to buy all these games, if I like them i'll definitely buy them in the future".

The circle always comes back around. Now that I have the money, these devs will forever be supported by me. And yes, I am a thieving criminal. I hope these devs don't care about that now though.

KillrateOmega  +   618d ago
Ah, yes. The infamous 'pirate to try' excuse.

The real excuse here is that you wanted something and didn't have the money to pay for it, so you justify it by saying that you'll 'buy the game later'. However, you would be in the overwhelming minority if you bought a game after having acquired the full game via pirating.

But let's say you are in this minority, this still does not justify pirating. In this day and age there are so many ways to tell if you are going to like a game before you play it, that you don't 'need' to play it before you buy it. Obviously nothing will replace first-hand experience, but it isn't necessary. There are reviews, video reviews, Let's Plays, video guides, etc. The very day that a game is released, there is so much relevant information about it that to not be educated on it is a CHOICE.

You chose not to do the simple search necessary to determine whether or not you are going to enjoy the game.

Take a Retribution: Ride to Hell. You don't need to play it to know that it is a pile of steaming dog feces. There are reviews that will tell me this. Even better, I can simply search for a video and see it is for myself.

You can throw out whatever faulty excuse you can think of for you contributing to ****ing over hard-working men and women, but when it comes down to it: people pirate games, because they don't want to pay for them.

There was no disc DRM,initially.There was only server based DRM.

After 180,MS had to return to disc based DRM.More work for already overloaded OS/system design teams.
mechlord  +   619d ago
This gen wont see much hacking as others had and the reason is a simple one:
Android/IOS and better security.

You see, back in the day, consoles were the only capable hardware other than PCs that could so shit and hackers (the real ones, the one that do it for the challenge, for the fun of it) loved to open up these boxes to have some more extra courts to play ball.

These days, you just have to buy a decent droid phone/tablet and youre set...
Contrary to popular belief, the ones that open up devices dont do it for piracy or monetary gain.

And lets face it: security will only get tougher on these devices. For comparison, the first psp launched with no security at all...and ps3 only got hacked because of one function mis-implemented (i dont know about other consoles because im not interested in them)
The vita hasn't been hacked to this day (the psp emulator inside it has, which is different) so dont expect piracy to run rampant on the X1/PS4. There is just no more motivation.

I'm not terribly surprised to be honest. I suspect they were so focused on DRM being their saviour, that they didn't put loads of resources into making sure the discs were properly protected. Especially since he now sees "XG4" for Xbox Game DIsc version 4 whereas the current 360 is XGD3, this leads me to believe they just added some slightly newer security algorithm to the disc in the same vein as what they were using previously.

If someone is going to break it, it's that guy. He knows things about things.
