1/ How on earth does hacking a Xbox 360 mean they can place a call? My Xbox 360 definitely does not have any access to my phone line.
2/ A console normally should sit behind a router/firewall.
3/ Again, how on earth did they "hack" it and how did this somehow make it possible to place a 911 cal using a "handicaped line" whatever that is?
This story is weird.
