Xbox 360 Hacked To Play DVD±R Discs

A video has been posted on the web that appears to confirm claims that the Xbox 360′s anti-hack security system has been hacked. The video shows a console with its lid off playing a copy of a game.

Claiming they’re more interested in hacking than piracy, the collaborative effort led by an individual known only by the handle TheSpecialist, hacked the player’s DVD drive firmware to play DVD±R discs – rather than reject them, as is usually the case. TheSpecialist claimed he has made bootable copies of Xbox 360 games using the modified code. The video purporting to show this happening can be seen here.
