Has the "next Xbox" info leaker been raided by police?

For the past several months, a man known only as "SuperDaE" has been the apparent source of leaked information about Microsoft's next Xbox console. In August, he even auctioned off what he claims is a hardware development kit for the console, code named Durango.

Recently, SuperDaE posted up yet another auction on the Australian eBay website, as he tried to sell off yet another Durango SDK. The auction concluded on Monday with a winning bid of over $50,000. Now it appears his actions have finally gotten the attention of Microsoft and law enforcement.

In a post on his Twitter page a few hours ago, SuperDaE said simply, "Police raided me.".  In another message posted an hour later, he said, "I find it hilarious how the warrant only really mentions "Microsoft", "eBay", "Paypal"." His last message, where he answers a person's question, seems to indicate that he sees this situation as being funny, saying:

So far, there's been no independent confirmation that police have indeed raided the house of someone who has tried to sell a Durango SDK on eBay. It's also not known what kinds of motives "SuperDaE" has to sell these kits and leak information about the next Xbox to the press.

An end result of living by YOLO

The corporations have precedent of the law, you can forget about citizen rights. Your rights don't mean anything anymore.

Because it's perfectly normal to release NDA protected info to the public which is actually punishable by law. Now lets all feel sorry for him and ****. He knew exactly what he was doing and what might happen.

Didn't know about the NDA, in that case he knew what he got himself into

I won't feel sorry for that.

Me neither. Nobody leaks information like this and is so ignorant as to not realize what they are doing... He deserved to be investigated...

If you try and sell confidential property/information on the internet, you're gonna have a bad time.

Exactly. What a moron.

50.000? Only Sony could pay for that, but given her bad enocomic situation... I guess he got nothing. On the other hand, the world is big and you never know...

Humm ... Make money ?
