Microsoft debunks Xbox 720 leaker, insists there's "no evidence" of security failure

Manufacturer "did not initiate" FBI investigation into SuperDAE following Durango auction

Microsoft has commented upon coverage of the FBI investigation of serial Durango/Xbox 720 rumour-monger SuperDAE, claiming that it did not "initiate" the proceedings and has uncovered "no evidence" that details of the next Xbox have been leaked.

"Microsoft did not initiate this FBI investigation with this individual, as has been asserted in some of the articles in the media," a Microsoft spokesperson told The Tech Game, originator of the report (via CVG). "We take security very seriously and have no evidence of any compromise of our corporate network. We have no further comment on this matter."


"Did not initiate" doesn't mean "has absolutely no connection with", of course. Microsoft is mentioned on a warrant passed to The Tech Game.

An eBay auction for a "Durango PC" appeared earlier this year, care of one "superdae" - no guarantees it's the same person. Among other things, the mystery source has told press that the next generation Xbox console will ship with a Kinect sensor as standard, and that game installations will be mandatory. He/she released an image of what's said to be the new console's Kinect development interface last year.

Wonder how much of all that's bogus?
