Those of you who have been on the Xbox scene for a long time probably know Team Xecuter. Team Xecuter is behind some of the most popular hardware mods for the Xbox 360.
Although exploits have been confirmed for the Wii U and the PS4, The Xbox One hasn’t seen that much hacking activity lately. Partly because it is less popular than the Ps4 so far, but that might not be the only reason.
I recently blogged about a year-old technique used in Indonesia to load the Xbox One with pirated AAA games. In the comments of that article, people mentioned that Team Xecuter might be working on some Xbox One hack, so I got curious and decided to verify.
About a week ago, the administrator of Team Xecuter’s website posted the following:
We have a few DoDo birds running around our TX HQ right now.
I would love to share a picture of them, but they are very shy birds, and I don’t want to disturb them as they are busy working on new product for something that is called One…..
That was as a reply to somebody stating that Team Xecuter’s products were similar to Dodo birds: extinct.
So, it seems Team Xecuter are working on the Xbox One, but the admin added:
Sadly, the way it stands i see in my crystal dodo bird ball, that wii u and ps4 will have products for it before xb1.
I personally am upset about that, but lets face the truth xb1 is in second place, only thing that might save it is TX!
When people asked if this was because of better security measures on the Xbox One, he replied:
more like better lawyers or MIB people, already two of my close friends are behind bars because of the XB1, that never occured with big ‘N’ or the crab ‘Sony’
So to summarize, Team Xecuter are apparently working on Xbox One hacks, have already something (prototypes?) in progress but can’t show it yet, and they expect that PS4 and Wii U will be hacked way before we see anything for the PS4. That’s, err… not really committing much?
People have mentioned that Team Xecuter have been trying to get more attention lately by dropping similar “we’re working on a XBone hack” statements, but that no proof has been given.
