About xResolver

xResolver, however originated back in 2017, dispersed on 2 different domain names, one for Xbox and one for PSN. The reverse lookups wasn’t very successful at the time, as players themselves store these IP/Gamertag entries by using an IP puller called Octosniff. As Octosniff became more and more popular, in fact, the number one IP sniffer in the last two years, so did xResolver’s database grow, exponentially.
