Xbox Live Goes Down, Lizard Squad Claims Responsibility
The hacking group fulfills its promise of taking down Microsoft’s gaming service.
It creaked and cracked and though hacking Lizard Squad only managed to slow down Xbox Live initially, it fulfilled it’s promise to take down the service for Xbox One and other services on Christmas Day.
Affected games are unable to contact servers and operate properly. Signing into Xbox Live isn’t possible and a quick look at the status of Xbox Live only confirms its downed state. Earlier, only a few apps like IGN and MLG.TV were limited in their working but now, Xbox Live itself has been affected.
Though Christmas is nearly over on this side of the ocean, it is pretty damn frustrating when you’re trying to complete the Thorn bounty in Destiny and suddenly find yourself – along with your opponents – disconnected.
