Games consoles have evolved into multimedia centres which offer similar functionality to standard computer equipment and, in the same way that we can analyse PCs, it is possible to retrieve evidence of activity such as internet browsing and image storage from modern games consoles.
All the big names in consoles can be digitally analysed, including PS3, Xbox, Wii and so forth, and as you’ll see in our focus article, a number of cases have been successfully prosecuted with significant digital forensic evidence from gaming consoles.
Gaming consoles can now provide investigators with usable forensic data – so it is crucial that the potential forensic value of gaming consoles is properly understood. They are now as sophisticated as PC’s, and we can retrieve data of equal significance, potentially with equal evidentiary value to PC’s for criminal or civil court proceedings.
