Banned within an hour... after it's existed since the console launched back in 2005. Back then, and even several years after that, JTAGs wouldnt get banned for weeks if not months. Only until recently has it been so that the JTAGs can banned fast. Hacks were RAMPANT then, still kinda are.

The PS3 only just got hacked fairly recently, and you're making completely unbalanced comparisons.

And when xbox servers went down its cause they didnt expect so many people on at one time, not because the got DDoS'd or hacked. Wheres the link to that article? It doesnt exist.

Your just butt hurt, and i dont blame you.. But you cant stand up for PSN or PS3 now... The battles been won.
"Didn't expect so many people on at one time"
What kind of stupid excuse is that? For a paid service? You're kidding me right? Google the word Logic for me. If that happened to PSN, maybe then you'd have a good argument. But you pay $50 for Xbox Live, and it crashes when too many people go online?

Actually, Xbox servers did get hacked. People downloaded Halo Reach early because MS was stupid enough to put it online for review teams and then had security holes for it. Oh, guess you didn't know about that one either lol

I find it your last comments to be funny, and completely enforces the source of the rest of your posts.

They pay people to hack their OS's and phones, idk about xbl but im sure its done internally.
MS doesnt even moderate XBL. It's a slapdash room of friends-of-friends who ban people off of Xbox Live. You want XBL support? You gotta go onto their crappy ass forums and post and wait for one of their friends to respond.

The last four digits, while harder to guess, can be had within a few hundred guesses in many situations -- a trivial hurdle for criminals using automated tools.
So they would have to get the first 5 numbers within a couple guesses at least if you're born after 1988, which I wasn't, and then spam apply for loans using a bot net at least a few hundred times. Who knows how many guesses it takes for pre-1988 SSNs? Could be a much higher number. And notice how they say "in many situations." That means that is the best-case scenario. Most of the time it's more.

This isn't something to be paranoid about as far as I'm concerned.

K so how do any of your statements refer to customers account security?

And yes when H3 came out the servers went down because they didnt expect so many people to be active. Halo reach leak would have happened regardless of the XBL leak, thats just common sense.

Right back at you, I'm just responding to your statements. How many of your statements refer to customers account security?

So.... that's ok then right? They didn't expect so many people to be active, so it's ok for the service to go down for one if not two weeks? You're perfectly fine with that, even after paying $50+ for Xbox Live along with hundreds of thousands of other people? With that much people paying, MS can't keep their servers online and have to have a cap amount of people or the service goes offline. Yes, I TOTALLY understand your logic.

Yet Sony gets hacked, with their free service, and it's like "down with Sony, hope they get sued"?

Yes, that made complete sense too.

We can all agree sony has their work cut out for them now, and this isnt fair for any of the 75 million+ gamers regardless of what we think.

Yes indeed.
I do wish Sony would speak up more, or at least give an ETA on the fix. Being left in the dark certainly was a terrible idea whomever thought of it.
