Like the previous years, console hackers and team fail0verflow are getting together for 34C3. We hope to have some table space at the Hackcenter to set up our consoles, show off our hacks, and teach people about them! The topic extends to many aspects of video game consoles and embedded devices, both software and hardware. This includes breaking the security, using homebrew software, modifying their existing software, hardware modifications and improvements, using custom hardware peripherals with consoles, using console peripherals with custom hardware, and anything else that's related to video game consoles. A lot of what goes on behind the scenes only happens once or twice, so here's your chance to learn what it really means to hack a game console, hands-on. If you always wanted to learn how the Wii's security was broken using a pair of tweezers, how to reverse engineer the Wii Remote's extension encryption and make your own, or why using a real random number generator is be very important, you might want to stop by and say hi :) With the Wii, WiiU, the PS3 and PS4 down, what will happen this year? We'll probably stare at other current consoles to see how far we can get during CCC. Four years ago we broke the last remaining parts of the WiiU and last year we demoed Steam on PS4 Linux with full 3D support thanks to the teamwork made possible in the hackcenter - let's see what this year brings! Before registering as fail0verflow we usually registered under the "Console Hacking" group, and members include people who have worked on the iPhone Dev Team and the wii hacking group Team Twiizers. We will also have a number of guests sitting with us.
