A Perth man’s house has been raided by police after he allegedly tried to sell a prototype of Microsoft’s new Xbox gaming console on the internet.
According to thetechgame.com, the man, who goes by the names “superDaE“, tried auctioning off a Durango development kit on Ebay.
The new Xbox is expected to be launched in time for Christmas this year.
“Technology Crime Investigation unit is currently conducting a multi-jurisdictional investigation into computer-related offences,“ a WA Police spokesman said.
“A search warrant was conducted Tuesday the 19th of February 2013 in relation to this investigation where items were seized.”
The spokesman could not confirm whether the FBI was involved.
But superDaE tweeted “police raided me” and mentioned having “an FBI agent and 7-8 police in your house”.
“I don’t even have bank cards to buy or pay for a lawyer or a phone,” he tweeted.
He also published the search warrant online.
“I find it hilarious how the warrant only really mentions “Microsoft“, “eBay“, “Paypal“,” he wrote.
