Hackers end 2014 with a bang by releasing the Xbox One SDK

Have you ever wanted to build a game for the Xbox One but didn’t feel like becoming a registered developer with Microsoft? Well you’re in luck! This previously impossible feat has been made doable by the hacker group known as H4LT, which intends to release the console’s SDK for the sake of allowing users to be able to create their own homebrew applications. 

As if the massive DDoS attack from Lizard Squad wasn’t enough of a disastrous end to the year for Sony and Microsoft, a new group called H4LT has apparently leaked the Xbox One software development kit on to Twitter. According to H4LT, this is the first step to bringing homebrew to the Xbox One. H4LT, which claims not to be a hacker group, took to Twitter earlier this week with screenshots that seemed to indicate they had their hands on November’s release of the Durango XDK (Xbox Development Kit). Days later, a tweet with a link to a .RAR file containing the XDK was shared via the group’s Twitter account.
