360 Still Elusive to Hacks

Slow, slow day for gaming news today. With nothing substancial out there, we thought we'd let you guys and gals know what's happening as far as hacking the 360 is concerned. Since Microsoft's Xbox was literally torn apart and exploited by hackers, distraught Microsoft has learned a valuable lesson as far as the 360's security goes. It's been nearly six months since the console's out and there's been very little progress as far as 360 hacks are concerned. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, San Diego based hacker Andrew Huang, author of "Hacking the Xbox: An Introduction to Reverse Engineering" had this to say, "It's about overcoming the challenge Microsoft has set out there. They've bragged about the security for the Xbox 360, so now it's like: Well, let's see." It's like an ego war out there with MS vs. the Hackers. So far it's MS: 1, Hackers: 0, but it's only a matter of time before the tables turn.
