A recently laid off Xbox 360 tester has reportedly rolled out a number of secrets, so here it goes: 1) there is a self destruct command for Xbox 360, 2) MS is software testing MGS 4 on Xbox 360, 3) Software testers are under-paid and given impossible deadlines, 4) MS bans staff from visiting and posting comments on certain sites.
1st. Interesting Thing:
There is a super secret kill-switch remote suicide self-destruct command that if Microsoft really wanted to they can remotely trigger and tell an Xbox 360 to fry itself and die. This was intended to be a last resort option if a fight against Xbox Live cheaters or major league professional game piracy ever got big. To their knowledge it has only been done in test situation in the lab but if they wanted to they could have the regular system security sweeps over Xbox Live activate a kill command when it found a compromised hacked Xbox 360 system. It works by having the Xbox overload a fuse and "pop" the fuse. The Xbox 360 will then crash and then will get an "Red Ring of Death Core Digital" error when the boot-up test comes back with a major component hardware failure. This is not the same as bricking or crashing a system since this will actually do physical damage to the motherboard.
hahaha Muito bom.
