Xbox One leaker will release information if arrested
The leaker who allegedly got hold of an Xbox One dev kit and released a slew of information to the Internet has warned that if he is arrested today, he’ll spill everything he knows.
The individual known as Superdae told Gizmodo that he expects to be charged today, after several months of investigation.
If he is arrested, and therefore can’t log into his FTP server this evening (Perth time) an automated system will give out its IP, user name and password via Twitter, offering read-only access to an alleged collection of top secret info.
Gizmodo says the server is packed with “juicy” files, and Superdae claims to have information about the Xbox One that Microsoft does not want leaked.
In a later report on Kotaku, the server was said to contain software development kits for the PlayStation 4; Xbox One and Wii U; information on the pulled from hacks of Epic Games; Blizzard; Unitied Front Games and THQ; and unfinished versions of unreleased games like Company of Heroes 2 and WWE 14, as well as mysterious Epic projects known only as Kilo, Lima and Orion.
Superdae gave out plenty of info regarding the console ahead of its reveal, much of which seems to have been correct.
