Yesterday we discussed possible problems with Microsoft's Xbox Live service, and Take Two's shaky future. The Gamerscore blog reports that worried Live users should know the service has not been compromised. "We want to reassure all of our 6 million Xbox Live members that we have looked into the situation and found no evidence of any compromise of the security of Bungie.net or our LIVE network. There have been a few isolated incidents where malicious users have been attempting to draw personal information from unsuspecting users and use it to gain access to their LIVE account." Meanwhile Chis Morris has it on good authority that, even if Take Two does sell, it won't be to Microsoft. "Because today's independent publishers are platform agnostic - that is to say, they build games for all major systems - taking over one would result in a massive revenue loss for Microsoft, as all development would be redirected toward the Xbox 360."
