    ...Halo: Combat Evolved begins...?

    On topic: So... did they do a quick Point spoof and "purchase" it? Or did they just brute-force the code server? I mean, not that i could ever pull that shit off, but i'm just curious to hell and back as to the method. Cause that's an impressive (albeit utterly wrong [​IMG]) feat.

    (like the Baltimore Apple Store Smash-N-Grab. I don't condone their actions, but shit, that was impressive to watch. It's on youtube.)

    Not bad, this is far from the first live related leak although in the past this was mainly XBLA and DLC.

    I am far too lazy to go looking up methods (read already far too close to insanity to wade through halo related threads) but I would guess it is someone forgetting large tracts (if not all) of the security for the 360 have been compromised these days. Before it would be developers and journalists with special machines who would have had it anyway (or between NDA and other licensing agreements would not have troubled things).

    Equally it is not the first time a "private"/guessed directory of a site has caused issues like this.

    I can still take of leave this game though.

    edit: I made the mistake of reading the comments section on that link......... not good.

    The game they downloaded game in a XCP file, which they need to decrypt. The XCP file is now available to the public now, so if anyone here knows how to decrypt that file, PM me. [​IMG]

    I never flashed the family 360, and even if I had I've always hated the Halo games anyway. But I do find it amusing that A) Microsoft could be this dense, and B) my little brother is the biggest Halo fan (IE: Hype Sheep) I've ever seen, and his 360 isn't flashed either so he still can't play it.

    I'm not a Halo guy, but maybe I'd get if I could get it as a free download [​IMG]

    This has nothing to do with flashing your Xbox360, you'd need to JTAG it herp derp

    You'll get profile banned if you download it from their servers, surely...or profile+console.
