Botchweed: "In a recent silent update the team at Microsoft has updated the Xbox 360 to help further prevent piracy on their leading console. The new update changed DAE.bin which works in conjunction with AP 2.5 disc protection."
Not massively keen on it being a silent update, but oh well.
I think it's a great idea, sneaky tactics are needed when thieving gits are involved.
when MS releases it but you can sure bet it gets loud when the pirates systems dont work right anymore.
the pirates had sucks
That doesn't make sense. If English isn't your first language I apologize. It is good news to know that MS is not backing down in the fight. It is not like they could do much last gen, so why hold back this gen?
So glad that they don't make a fuss about these security updates that don't have much else. Also glad that even with these featureless security updates, they still treat us to awesome feature packed updates like the upcoming Metro UI update.
My favourite update so far has to be the update that brought us full disc installs.
The beacon feature is awesome! The only problem is that I'm in the beta and vast majority of my friends isn't on the beta yet, so almost nobody sees my call (beacon) for some [email protected] in Gears 3!
YOU BEEN BANNED :D LOL right before the holidays. Will pirates and modders ever learn? Now they have to spend another $200 for a modded console only to be banned again in 6 months.
Now they have to spend another $200 for a modded console REALLY?
Haha this is another attempt by Microsoft to fight piracy, and its already going to be defeated. http://c4evaspeaks.com/ixtr...
Piracy is SO easy on the Xbox 360. That's what Microsoft gets for making it PC-like. Look at the PS3 with its alien technology. It barely got hacked like a year ago. So Microsoft, we don't want a cheap PC, we want a an awesome console. I pray to god they won't include Windows 8 for the Xbox 720. Its a disaster waiting to happen.
Piracy is just as bad on the PS3 as 360 now.
iXtreme LT+ v3.0 On The Way — AP2.5 Defeated
when do the new fall update suppose to come.
You thick [email protected], you really think this will stop modders. I'd say 4 years of FREE use at 150 games later and most modders are laughing their socks off. The odd new console is nothing compared to £40 a pop for a game :) hundreds of thousands on the scene have been playing for free for 4 years and NO BAN!! If you mugs think it's acceptable to pay £40 for a 25p disc then dream on!
