New XBox 360 Protection in Leaked 12606 & Fall 2010 Dashboard

50°
203w ago - According to several people on X-S (linked above), new XBox 360 protection appears to have been implemented in the leaked 12606 and Fall 2010 Dashboard.

The new security against piracy and video game backups is reported in Kinect and the Beta XBox 360 Firmware along with Fable 3 thus far.

I have condensed the information to avoid being too technical, and some of the information has been taken from other people's posts from some high rated members, some not.

• In a new XBox 360 Beta firmware that leaked to the Internet, Microsoft has appears to have added new checks to see if a disc is legit inside the disc drive.

• One of the games that has been found to be giving problems is the release of Fable III. Right now it's unclear which games, DVD models and/or modified FWs are exactly affected.

• The software appears to run some checks on the disc in a way not thought before, with responses that can cause your console to be perma-banned, due to failing "Failed AP25 Challenge", OFFLINE!

205w ago - Geremia at XBoxHacker.org (linked above) reports that Tarablinda v0.4b has arrived and is working with XBox 360 Slim DG16D4S drives.

Tarablinda is a collection of hacks and tricks which he discovered during hw and fw exploration (allows to extract dvdkey and more and since this last version even an experimental way to dump the whole FW).

To quote: Thanks for running the test app, i figured out nothing interesting from it but thanks for doing it anyway, ehehheeh

I had no time, no will and no more than 2 drive to test, and i'm not willing to support it too much, it's just a proof of concept. It can contain bugs and it's not an idiot proof app.

I spent 2 months of spare night-time on this, from decapping to fullrawdump, passing by descrambling fw, reversing fw, bruteforcing, finding usefull cdb commands, bugs and tricks. This is the result, not the beginning of something else.

Since it's my hobby, i'm free to do what i like, just enjoy it or hate it, i dont' care. Slim liteon is well detectable and also lockable to a permanent read-only SPI flash, it's just a matter of MS to push the red button.

Ninja Gaiden 3 Officially Announced By Team Ninja at TGS 2010

400°
209w ago - Today Team Ninja have officially announced Ninja Gaiden 3 at TGS 2010, reportedly to be released on both Microsoft's XBox 360 console and Sony's PS3 entertainment system.

Team Ninja will once again handle development on the title, the first in the series since series creator Tomonobu Itagaki left the company.

Not much else was revealed as to what to expect from the sequel, but it's thought we're going to see a "more human side" to main character Ryu.

To quote: "Attending a behind-closed door reveal earlier today, the image of Ryo Hayabusa holds secrets of the game to come. Ryu is pulling off his mask to represent a more human side to the series' protagonist and the idea that players will discover more about him.

Ryu also has blood on his face, representing a more violent and bloody experience to Ninja Gaiden 2.

You can also see a reflection of a person in Ryu's eye, perhaps suggesting an inner darkness which he is trying to contain - the likelihood is this darkness will manifest itself with new abilities.

The flames represent Ryu's descent into a hellish realm and the hell he plans to unleash on his foes.

We've also noticed something peculiar looking under the right eye that looks too specific to be just a blood smear."
