That's it. I'm out. Selling my Xbox One immediately. With news of the DRM coming back and now this I'm just out. I just hope I can find someone silly enough to want my Xbox One after this news...

There was only 1 post that may be even remotely considered "sony fanboy"ish.

This one guy named Carl Jenk seems pretty silly.

They also gave him 4 free games, 12 months of live and $50? Microsoft spit in that kid's face.


Apparently the kid took a day off work to find that flaw too.

The hole in the security should have never been there. Especially from a company who prides itself on software. They could have done more for the kid as well. Oh well. It is fixed. Moving on.


Sony prides itself on its hardware but all of their consoles have multiple problems. Mistakes happen, what's impressive is the way a company handles a situation and corrects it.

In this case MS handled it quickly and didn't try to hide it from the public, even going as far as to reward the person that discovered the flaw. If you cant respect that then you are indeed a fanboy.

I think it's crazy a 5 year old found this flaw before millions people did. Sometimes it's the simplest things that work.

Yeah I feared for my own life because you attempted another stealth troll.
