Console

Console reverse engineering
Today’s consoles have an huge potential to experiment with. Unfortunately, all this potential is not officially documented. The solution is to look for some help from the reverse scene. Through the work of many reversers it is now possible for individuals to analyze and study how the hardware of the material they have purchased works.
