Inside A Chinese Hacking Den

Inside A Chinese Hacking Den

Located in a South China shopping center, this shop doesn’t merely “fix” consoles. It fixes them so they can run pirates games. Common throughout the country, the “Chinese pirates hacking den”, as website China Underground called it, specialises in flashing (modding) Xbox 360 and hacking consoles like the PlayStation 3 and the Wii.

Video game consoles are banned in China. However, modded machines and illegally pirated games are widely available on the country’s grey market.
