Rumor: Microsoft Can Kill Xbox 360s Remotely

,----[ Quote ]
| A bit of qualification: I follow 8BitJoystickâs Jake Metcalf on Twitter and
| he seems like a responsible writer. More importantly, he has a track record
| of digging up credible inside sources. He famously broke the news that Halo
| developer Bungie was leaving Microsoft (it was actually amusing to see bigger
| outlets laugh at him, then eat their words), and has posted a couple other
| juicy reports as well.
| So when Metcalf says the source was âwell vetted,â I believe him, even if the
| sourceâs information leaves me skeptical simply because itâs so unbelievable.
| If the report is accurate, the obvious question remains: Does Microsoft have
| the legal right to do this? Yes, Metcalf argues, because hacking an Xbox 360
| is a violation of the consoleâs terms of service, as well as the Digital
| Millennium Copyright Act.
