The guy plays video games? News to me, he just sounds so out of touch with the gaming world with most his predictions
Michael Fudge Packter got what was coming to him. Nothing more, nothing less.
didn't predict that did you Pachter lol looks like kramun already beat me to it
Hahahahahahaha!!!! This is the best news!
This just shows how bad Pachter is at his job, he couldnt even predict this, what makes you think he will predict anything bigger and more awesome?
I find it funny that all of you are so bitter against Pachter when he actually hasn't really done anything. Hes just an analyst who's job is to make predictions, yet you treat him like hes the devil.
I've got no problem with Pachter, but this proves that XBL isn't as secure as people think, because this sort of stuff happens every day on the service.
So Sunhammer, you're basically saying that people deserve to have their user account hacked just because they say something you don't agree to? I wonder if you will have the nerve to tell that to 70+ million people who got their account hacked recently on PSN.
Seriously I just lol so hard when i read the title.
Xbox live is insecure, switch to ps3 :)
I can't tell if you're serious or not....
It doesn't matter. There is no such thing as a secure system when it is on the internet. Not even quantum cryptography can prevent all intrusions because there's always a way in.
Execpt the system didn't get attacked his account did which is associated with the email which is what got hacked. I wish some of you would know the difference.
Yeah, and I also heard that there was a guy who got a paper cut while trying to build an Ikea stool in Oslo. Sweden is insecure! let's all move to Libya!
The funny thing is he couldn't predict his own account getting hacked. There's some sort of irony here. I don't know, but lately anything that comes out of this guy's mouth as well as Hip Hop Gamer's mouth should never be taken seriously.
"Bububu xbl is 100% secure" lol...and [email protected]
Damn ps3 fans finally got him lol
I'm sure it never crossed your mind that fanboys of other consoles could possibly have attacked other networks. Edit: Yeah, ps3 fans hate Pachter, so they bought 360s and hacked his account. HILARIOUS "joke" that someone named "SonySlave3" and other similar types of people would find a gas.
There's this thing called a joke...
Dude, seriously, calm down. You didn't find it funny. Okay. Move on.
I bet he didn't predict that would happen. If he had he most likely wouldn't have got hacked, such is the power of his predictions.
Who cares? He is just a normal person after all.
Normally I hate on hackers but I give them commendation on this occaision.
Woah! What was that? Did you just see that sh*t?! I think it was a fairy.
yeah, that's amazing. :)
And this is news because ........ theres some sh*t and pointless articles on here that get approved fairplay
you've been a member since '08 man. You must have the worst observational and adaptive skills on the internet if you haven't gotten over the fact that N4G isn't perfect yet. Also - People will disagree with you and not explain why. You may even run into blatant fanboys. Be careful out here, N4G isn't serious business by any standards.
I noticed it along time ago thanks dont need your sarcastic remarks, but thought id just air my thoughts ive been think for, for a while
heehehaahahahahaha...lmao sorry that was funny
i can see the hacking .. Q: " what is your mother maiden name ?" A: "Patcher" Please enter your new password ..
...you have demonstrated supreme knowledge of what a "maiden name" is. /s
He was probably making a joke of how Pachter could be inbred lol
