With all the negative press surrounding the Xbox One at the moment, it got me thinking about it's risk of hacking or server attacks from various groups...
This thread is in no way condoning groups like 'Anonymous' etc... But this console's features seem to fall directly under some of these groups 'targets'.
Does anyone think MS will be targeted? Do you even think it will be possible (there's ALWAYS a backdoor it seems...) and do you think MS are prepared?
The features of this console seem to hinge on it providing an 'always on' type of environment. That and the PC architecture (Windows etc...) seem to make it an almost ideal target for these type of groups.
Ultimatly, where does this leave the customer in all this. If an attack happens to the extent of the PS3 online downtime, how will 'fans' take this?
Do you think laws for 'hacking' will become more severe because of these types of events.
