Translation - Tools to sniff what you're doing, and hack onto your console to read data. Yes. The US Department of the Navy wants to spy on gamers...

Seriously. No joke!

It's quite easy. We're terrorists unless we buy continual non-terrorist vouchers, compounded per minute. Then when you run out of money, your guilt transfers from "paper" to reality, with automatic dispatch of officers.
