Coming in the form of a text file and posted on the internet, at least 13,000 user passwords and or credit card numbers were leaked, along with other personal information and credentials. The hackers, claiming to be an offshoot of Anonymous, shared the document on Ghostbin.
A DDoS attack that crippled the networks of Xbox and Playstation over the Christmas holiday is finally over and an unlikely mediator has stepped forward claiming that he is the one responsible for resolving the issue.
The hack attack, which disrupted online services such as multiplayer games like Call of Duty Advanced Warfare and Destiny, is now over and we have Kim Dotcom to thank.
The hacker group, Lizard Squad, which claimed responsibility for the attacks, has confirmed that it was in fact Dotcom who settled the skirmish, via their official Twitter. Continue reading

I have never seen an advertisement like this… Alpine ski racer, Lindsey Vonn, promoting XBOX’ NBA2K 12 video game. Got that? By the way, nice padded bra Linds! :)
And what could make this even weirder?
The new commercial for the ‘truth or dare’ style Wii game “We Dare”, is one of the most risqué commercials I’ve ever seen for a video game or any commercial really. I don’t mean to sound like a prudish parent, but you’ll probably agree when you see the group of actors trading off the spanking position on each others’ laps!
Apparently, there were a few different versions of this commercial- like alternate endings, that being one where the couples ‘switch off’ at the end, and imply that they are going to go ‘do their thing’ when they leave the room. Another alternate ending showed the the entire group having at it, but those commercials got scrapped, leaving us just with this raunchy one!
In this video, The men strip off for the girls, and the girls stick the Wii controller in the waistband of their skirts… two of the actors are balancing the Wii controller between their lips… it all seems unsanitary!
Surprisingly, the game states that you have to be “12+” to play the game! A spokeswoman for French makers Ubisoft said: “We Dare is intended for an adult audience.” She said the age rating was set by an independent European panel. Okay, so 12 year-olds in Europe are really like American 18 year-olds?
Anyway, the 12+ thing really seems to go out the window at the very end of the commercial because the graphics state: “ENTER PARENTAL CODE 6969″… implying that it’s for adults, especially with the corny “6969″ choice of numbers.
Okay IGN/Wii… you got our attention, but we don’t want the game because it’s unsanitary!
3-D is hotter than ever right now, and Nintendo is making sure they stay current with all of the other competition…
Kyoto-based Nintendo announced their new 3-D gaming device, which is temporarily being called the Nintendo 3DS, is scheduled to launch during the coming fiscal year ending March 31, 2011. The new system will also play current Nintendo DS games, and the best part- NO glasses will be needed for the 3DS!
Fellow competitor “Sony”, has plans to upgrade its PlayStation 3 console to play 3-D games with a free software upgrade, but consumers will have to buy a new television and glasses to play 3-D games at home.
In a brief and unexpected statement, Nintendo released no additional information about the coming device’s price or functionality. The company said it would provide more details in June at the videogame industry’s annual E3 convention held in Los Angeles.
