SuperDaE, the person who allegedly tried to sell an early debug unit of the Xbox One on eBay last year, has threatened to leak a number of documents pertaining to the Xbox One along with internal Microsoft documents if arrested.
If so, this could lead to an avalanche of controversy that Microsoft has been trying to keep a lid on since before the rather disappointing Xbox One reveal. A lot of answers have been left in an ocean of misdirection as Microsoft continues to confirm and deny everything, and then give the infamous “Wait till E3 2013 for further details” response.
Gamers are already not happy with Microsoft seemingly telling them what they can and can’t do with what was never an issue before. The Xbox One has become the most restrictive gaming console in history, and Microsoft is doing nothing to disprove it.
SuperDaE has stated that if he is unable to reach his computer by a specific time, his Twitter account is set to release the username and password to a server containing everything he knows after years of data collected on the Xbox One. He may be doing us a favor if he does, as Microsoft has been holding back details that gamers are eagerly anticipating the release of.
The “Durango” detail leaker has been sitting in his apartment for months now awaiting the hearing concerning his activity with eBay and the Xbox One development kits he tried to sell.
Gamers are tired of waiting, Microsoft, and SuperDaE could be the hero who makes all of your secrecy a waste of time in the latest console war.
Microsoft has denied involvement in the Australian police raid on SuperDaE, and has stated, “Microsoft did not initiate this FBI investigation with this individual, as has been asserted in some of the articles in the media. We take security very seriously and have no evidence of any compromise of our corporate network. We have no further comment on this matter.”
SuperDaE has been charged, and his login information has been released on Twitter. It is not yet known what the information is, but if it is what he claims it to be, and Microsoft is unable to prevent it, this could kickstart the end of the secrecy and set off fireworks in the gaming industry.
What type of information do you think SuperDaE kept on his server? Do you think Microsoft’s secrecy is all for naught over the Xbox One?
