UPDATED: Anonymous is NOT Responsible for Those Dreadful Xbox Live Issues

Update: As pointed out by various members of the community, the reports of this story appear to be based on a hoax. Original story follows.

Anonymous hacking group, Anonymous, has taken the responsibility for the Xbox Live issues users have encountered today. Microsoft is currently working to fix the situation. Meanwhile, some people who have managed to sign in are having trouble with other matters, like this one guy whose entire friends list has been deleted. Microsoft has issued the following update:

"We are aware of an issue members are having sending and receiving messages, seeing friend’s statuses, sending or receiving game and party invites, and accepting friend requests on Xbox LIVE. We are currently working as fast as we can to get this issue fixed, thank you for your patience during this time and we will update you with any new information we receive."

he changed it to Tommy...jk

It is actually worse that it wasn't hacking.

Microsoft is about to try to possibly push the "always online" thing, while at the same time, not being able to maintain their own online service...

Couldn't write it any better.

And I'm a microsoft fan.....................for now anyways.

Glad to hear Xbox Live is still pure and untouched. Xbox Live was just having some errors is all.

EDIT @Disagrees aww Sony fans are upset that Xbox Live didn't get hacked well #DealWithit.

Seriously, Its pretty immature that you people want a service to get hacked so bad. Have you ever thought the fact that maybe MS has something special with Xbox Live? Its far from perfect (nothings perfect) but a damn secure and reliable service overall.

Isn't it kinda worse it wasn't anonymous though?

I mean if it were a one off isolated coordinated attack at protest of the rumours of an always online console, then that's one thing, but surely if it is just a simple error that brought the whole thing down with no outside help actually a worse thing in terms of PR for an always online machine???

As in, yeah even without outside influence you'll STILL have to face outages at one time or another.

Pure and untouched...except by all those hackers and cheaters that Anonymous did call out in that video. So long as the servers are "secure" though I guess it's all good.

It was only down for a couple of hours!!! People always want to make a big f-ckin deal about absolutely nothing. Why don't you nerds blame the power outage in your house on anonymous too while you're at it
