leakyBucketA serial leaker who goes by the twitter handle superDAE appears to have landed himself in a spot of trouble. He is most famously known for attempting to sell a Durango (the next Xbox) dev kit that was sent to him by Microsoft.

That previous auction was cancelled in the end but that didn’t stop superDAE from going on a bit of a rampage over the last year leaking information left, right and centre.

However it looks like his run has come to an end with him tweeting last night that he had been raided by the FBI. The most telling tweet was as follows.

But why would the FBI have a warrant with Microsoft, eBay and Paypal on there?

Well it looks like our friend was up to his old tricks and actually sold his latest Durango dev kit on an eBay auction for a whopping AUD$50 000.

No matter how this case plays out I think it’s fair to say superDAE isn’t going to be receiving anymore insider information.

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer

    Interesting indeed.

      Conference is still on for later today actually. And by later, I mean 1AM local time.

      • Darth_Clericus_The_Ultimate

        Bleh, 1 AM is painfully long away…..

        And by later today, you mean tomorrow. :)

      • Sir Captain Rincethis

        I will actually laugh my balls off if the news is about a new vita…

        • Major Commodore 64 Darryn B

          At 1AM? I’ll throw my laptop out of the window if that’s the case.

          • Sir Captain Rincethis

            You will be up with your fly at 1am 0-O?

          • FoxOneZA

            At 1AM a skelm would catch it before it hits the floor.

            XDXDXDXD

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            I sense another shower crying scene…..

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            Then I will laugh my balls off, just as Rincethis

          • Sir Captain Rincethis

            Hahah, and you kind sir, and you!

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            Video as proof!

          • matthurstrsa

            You in Hillbrow?

        • Admiral Chief Erwin

          LOL, why oh why did you get a downvote for that?

          • Sir Captain Rincethis

            Because there are pre-baby fanboys about :) And if you say anything about their Precious, they anger, and RAGE! Which makes me want to do it MOAR!

      • Admiral Chief Erwin

        And by 1AM you mean that you will be up watching?

    • Mikhil

      Nah, announcement that Sony is splitting the Playstation brand and selling it to Apple lol01ol101!!!

      • Deon Steyn

        Announcement that Sony bought Xbox, i know but it’s just as unlikely for them to sell to Apple

    • Deon Steyn
  • Deon Steyn

    His pic reminds me of Dan from Street Fighter

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    I don’t approve of this leaking and the way he/she handled him/herself.

    Abusing the trust and acting like a poepol

    • Mikhil

      The word is poes, not poepol.

      • Admiral Chief Erwin

        Bit strong a word to use publicly, but yes, that is the word

        • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

          lol

  • FoxOneZA

    So is he an Aussie or did an Aussie buy it?

  • Banana Jim

    That’s if the raid even happened. So far, it’s only his word that he was raided by Australian authorities and the FBI (Jesus do they even have jurisdiction?).

    But, if it is true, then all the rumours of the xbox, kinect 2 enabled and always online gameplay has to be true as well. And that’s depressing.

    My guess is, that the whole thing has been an attempt at creating viral advertising for Microsoft. As long as people are talking about Microsoft rather than Sony, the better. Really weird how things work these days, even bad publicity is good.
