US government hires company to hack into video game consoles

ZDnet - "The U.S. government recently posted a project asking for the “Development of Tools for Extracting Information from Video Game Systems.” The listing was posted just two months ago, and last week a contract was signed with the California-based company Obscure Technologies. The U.S. is paying $177,237.50 for the job."

The story is too old to be commented.

So it's wrong for the people to hack into the governments to expose their lies, but is totally okay for them to hack us?! What the hell?

Welcome to Big Brother!

Also LMAO that they are going to hack people outside the US! The US Government need that chip knocking off their shoulders. It's a shame that the American people have to put up with such idiots.

I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to get the info pipeline hooked up for next gen consoles. The could watch all your moves.

this is because the feds are worried that the chinese are putting moody tech in chips etc that they can use to remote access servers/computers etc and they are probably right
