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

This is the best news!

Istanbull1801d ago

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?

Focker4201801d ago

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.

gaffyh1801d ago

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.

humbleopinion1800d ago

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.

Xbox live is insecure, switch to ps3 :)

Psfan9991801d ago

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.

Mustang300C20121801d ago

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.

humbleopinion1800d ago

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"

Damn ps3 fans finally got him lol

HolyOrangeCows1801d ago (Edited 1801d ago )

I'm sure it never crossed your mind that fanboys of other consoles could possibly have attacked other networks.

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.

MidnytRain1801d ago

There's this thing called a joke...

MidnytRain1801d ago

Dude, seriously, calm down. You didn't find it funny. Okay. Move on.

kramun1801d ago

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.

Kon1801d ago

Who cares? He is just a normal person after all.
