Here we have quite an interview about the Xbox360 that was given in Europe at the Game Developers Conference. Specifically, Andre Vrignaud, member of the Xbox Platform Strategy Group, lectured to game developers about how many of the new features of Microsoft's Xbox 360 next-generation console would interface with their games.
Near the end though, it was questions from the audience time, someone brought up the subject of mod chips and this is when Andre may have thrown down the guantlet to the hacking community.
When ending the talk, Vrignaud also took a couple of questions from the audience on esoteric topics, revealing that, though the Xbox 360 has a virtual keyboard, it does also support USB keyboards. More interestingly, a question from an audience member on the security for Xbox 360 in terms of 'mod chips' and other devices that modify for imported/illegal content prompted a reply that Microsoft took 2 and a half years on security this time round, whereas the Xbox only had around a year. Vrignaud prompted: "Never say never", but he thinks it's going to be a long time before the Xbox 360 gets modded.
This is very interesting indeed:
