Microsoft: We're Investigating the Recon Armor Hack

Kotaku reports: "Skyluss, a member of pro-gaming Team vBi, reported over the weekend that his Xbox Live account has been hacked... again. Apparently the hacker was a little envious of the Recon Armor Bungie had bestowed upon Skyluss and decided to take it for a spin him or herself.

I emailed XBL Director Larry Hyrb to see if Skyluss high-profile account problems are being investigated, as the gamer was told after receiving a whole lot of run around and not a lot of answers. Hyrb told me that their security team has indeed launched an investigation and that he has been in touch with the gamer personally".

The story is too old to be commented.

well this is the first time I've even heard of the recon armor, but serious kudos to bungie for actualy rewarding the super elite players.

I mean the ninja gaiden helmet and sword just dint seem that "leet" anymore because so many people I saw had the same get up.

hope insomniac take's a hint for Resistance 2....

edit: LOL death by a dropped weapon? thats good, thanks for the info! bubbl+ now Im off to youtube xD

I think that armor is being handed out for other stuff than just people that are super good. Anything that gets a lot of attention and/or is hilarious, like suicide by traffic cone, suicide by own sniper bullet ricocheting off a wall, or death by dropped weapon gave those players the armor too.

Skyluss was given the armor after he posted a film of him shooting himself with his own sniper rifle. The round actually richocheted back and killed him.

admitting you have a problem is the first step to solving it...
