MP1st - In the wake of attacks on Sony’s PlayStation Network, users on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One are now reporting issues signing in to Xbox Live’s online services. (Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Update Microsoft has updated their page, saying all Core services (signing in, ect) are fixed.

Someone made an interesting point. If MS was beign DDos, would it even be wide spread given the fact that they own so many servers and such???? IDK how that stuff works, so

Point One and Two: I can write however,whenever, and wherever I please. If you have an issue with that, so be it that's something you'll have to take up with yourself.

Point 3: Where in my original comment did I even mention a company DDosing another? I was asking whether or not MS can evade one, given the amount of servers that they own.

Thanks for the insight

@jujubee, I have no idea who your original comment is replying to, but if it's to Nitro, then your comment is severely irrelevant.

@Nitro, it would take a lot more than a direct DDoS to take down live completely, but with the correct planning it's very possible. The load balancers would be doing their jobs by redirecting pings, but if there's enough of them it can overload it all.

I'm going to tell you that 7 out of 10 times I go to network under my xb1 settings it's going to say there is something wrong with the core gaming or some sort of marketplace issue. I don't know what changed from the 360 to the xb1 but ms is really starting to piss me off. I had enough of this crap last gen. If they can't provide a stable service I'll just go with ps4. Yeah they may have an issue right now but with xbl it's constant. The xb1 is an excellent system but these xbl issues are really getting out of hand.
jujubee88  +   534d ago

No, you can't just 'write however' you want -- 'you kidding me?!?

What you are doing isn't writing in english .. If you want me (or anyone else) to understand you when you communicate online, then do it the correct and proper way. You can be better understood by minimizing spelling errors and improving your grammar. Simple!

@codewow: Oh please, you only replied once he made a second comment and was (probably) so ashamed of how he wrote his OP that he needed to clarify (what he had originally written).

Also, I'm not here to be the village "grammar nazi" bc I know my grammer isn't always prefect online (I tend to shorten stuff for time, etc). I'm just saying, what you (@nitro) wrote was barely even readable.

Again, peace.


"Why does (jujubee88) write in brackets (so often) (?)"

It's called parenthesis. This is brackets --> []

I write in parenthesis often as it implies the written part is more of an inner thought. Sorta kinda. I've been critiqued for it before (as I said I'm not perfect). At least, people get what I'm writing and it's more of a english writing styling error and not a fundamentally incorrect approach. If you have anymore comments related to this issue, by all means, write about it. :)

Most attacks seem to be originating in China (and for some reason Western Africa (around Liberia and south)) I'd imagine those are just being routed from China.

It is mostly aimed at larger cities (LA, NY, maybe Dallas.)

Parts of Europe are getting them and some in Australia.

The US is mostly attacking China. It is odd, but it is interesting to watch. Don't know what is going on.
Dark_king  +   534d ago
@jujubee88 I understood it fine, though I chat whit lots of people who are drunk and stoned off there asses.So maybe the real problem is on your end,you need more experience reading on the internet.

Edit:BTW everyone should take this time to run there virus scans.Just to make sure your not adding to the attack.(though im sure many of the people here don't download anything without checking it first right?)

All day long, xbox fans tried using this nonsense as an excuse to bash PlayStation. Now it's affecting Xbox one as well. Now is the time for everyone to drop the ridiculous fanboy bickering and unite as one cohesive gaming community to show these mischievous online groups that we will not be shaken by their foolish attempts to get attention. Because at the end of the day, the only people being inconvenienced is us.....the gamers.

Well so much for "Xbox Live is invincible."

It probably could handle more than PSN, but honestly, they had a 15 years head start of charging people to play online. So you'd expect it wouldn't be down for long.

As more people invest in PS+, it'll get better. They'll reinvest it in more servers and back-up servers to avoid these mind of scenarios.

BTW; Don't DDoS, it just sucks for everyone.

LizardSquad didn't do anything, the real culprit leaked LizardSquad IP's and shut down their website. FamedGod seems to be the one that DDoS'd the networks. Look it up, PSN network took a massive hit, LIVE not so much.

After bringing down PSN he wrote:
"Xbox is Next. #ProjectMicro"

"See atleast Xbox and Microsoft are smart and dont operate on one datacenter. Sony your f****** aids."

@Nitro The myth of MS having many more servers than Sony is falling to pieces right now.

Also, the attacks are ongoing, this is far from fixed. Lizard Squad is still reporting new attacks. Also, don't forget Sony fixed their network several times yesterday also, but it was brought down again. Looks like the same happening here.

It would not. The only thing that really screws people is when the login/authentication servers go down. Then you are screwed from signing in. They have had this in the past.

I know I am going to get massive disagrees for this, but Microsoft section off services well it seems. Any one thing can go down, but I have in 8 years never seen all of Xbox Live go down. Usually it is the sign-in servers or something else.

How f***ing sad...Sony gets DDoS attacks (again) so Sony fanboys try to make it appear as though MS is getting them too. What a joke.

@Dark_king...How did you understand "just fine" when Nitrowolf2 used a misspelled word that could be interpreted as a number of words that would completely change the meaning of the post? "Beign" is not a word. Did he mean being? Behind? Benign? Who knows? If anything, the rough structure of the sentence would make "behind" the most logical word --- ("If MS was behind [the] DDoS,...) Admittedly, they left out "the" but if you were to insert "being" there would be several more words that are left out rather than just one. (MS was being DDos,?) But I guess if you're a fanboy then you just throw logic out the window and attack anyone pointing out how lame this story and all the posts and agrees attached to it truly are.

Netflix never loads for me on the 360. After they updated the app it's useless. I call Netflix and they blame MS. MS in turn blames Netflix. The PT worked for awhile and now I get the same connectivity error so I know it's Netflix.

Actually this is worse than the PSN, because PSN was just a stupid DDoS attack that could happen to ANY network. XBL just went down...
Gamer1982  +   534d ago
It really sucks Xbox got targeted aswell and MS says its been fixed but it clearly hasn't

In a twisted kind of way kind of glad this has happened as at least it shows xbox fanboys that no service is safe from these type of attacks and it brings gamers together over a common threat rather than saying my service is better than yours because it hasn't gone down. Maybe fanboys will think twice in future now before saying Xbox is bulletproof.. Though they probably won't :(.

Those errors are nothing new and have nothing to do with a DDoS attack. Diablo has had issues since launch and pubs is always messed.If any one was affected on xb it was a small percentage of players and no one that I know had an issue with it.Xbl uses multiple servers all over the world so if it was hit somewhere it wouldn't be a global shutdown like pan anyways.

You were just in the psn down article saying how, its not a big deal. Nice try, under attack and sign in issues huuuuge difference. But if it helps you fanboys feel better, by all means have at it.

US government doesn't have capital crimes. Terrorist threats do not a terrorist make. I can't remember what it's called, but it has a different term when you say you're going to do something, and when you actually do it.

Honestly, these guys just come off as stupid. I have a feeling when they're caught and exposed to the public, we'll all see that they aren't quite as terrifying as they'd like everyone to believe. They appear more idiotic to me based on their twitter posts, and I've never seen terrorist stories where the terrorist looked like an obnoxious moron.

Microsoft, has these notices up all the time. If a few people get effected they announce it. I play games fine even when i see Social and gaming is limited.

If this was DDOS attack. x box live would be completely down for everyone.

Party chat has lot of issues for whatever reason on x box 1, but for 99 per cent of the time, it works.

If x box live was down why hide it thats just silly. Some Sony fans are hoping it happens to x box live. That's sad if you think about it. x box live isn't under attack, not saying it will not happen. But stop wishing for it to happen.

Just to add the issue seems to be with Diablo. And we know Blizzard was hit by this DDos.

They are about you announcing it and making XBL or PSN or Battlenet or whatever a target.

You don't think these guys frequent one of the top gaming sites on the internet? You don't think they are just eating up these articles about what they've done?

You don't think that they aren't going to see your claim that you are using the service without problem as a challenge to what they are doing?

Yeah whatever you say. XBL has been hit and miss since the Preview program started due to XBL and XB1 being upgraded so often with multiple OS running on XB1's with different features. Dude was just looking for clicks with this click bait. XB1 has a live status posting on the XB1 and this stuff happens every other day.

I'm surprised a pro Xbox site tried to spin XB1 into Sony's mess and not a fanboy Sony site, then again dude did it for clicks.


I know it's an update from MSFT. I have the XB1 and in the beta preview. I never said the guy made it up. I said sites are linking MSFT's XBL issues with Sony, hack/attack is BS.

We can check the XBL status reports MSFT releases on sites through the XB1 settings in network. God I hate PS fans. Damn troll you knew what I was talking about. The guy that wrote the article linked XBL issues with PSN being hacked/attacked. XBL has been doing this off and on for months because of the new OS features being on the same network as the old one.

Put these people behind bars. Tells you they have no lives if they stay in the basement eating snickers all day and they think it is a laugh taking down networks. Toss them in a cell with a lonely cell mate or even worse make then go outside.

Natural light is thy basement dwellers greatest fear.. interesting method, I approve.

No greenhouse just make them pickup garbage off the road for a few thousand hours.Then make sure they are forbidden to use any type of computer again.

No issues here with gaming or signing in on xbox one.

These douche bags seriously need a good arse whooping, it was Sunday night, everyones relaxing and trying to use the spare time they had to enjoy some video-games, most of my friends need to wait till Sunday until they can even turn their console on, hate these hackers to the tip of my bones.

I'm just hoping it's sorted by tomorrow, I've just bought Plants vs Zombies and I can't play it because of these people, damned idiots.
incendy35  +   534d ago
PSN will be down tomorrow for other reasons. Hopefully when it does come back everything will be fixed though.
Nitrowolf2  +   534d ago
I'm hoping Sony just said F it, lets just do the Maintenance today since this happened, tht way they don't have even more angrier people tomorrow. Hoopefully it's all resolved by then anyway
vikingland1  +   534d ago
I'm hoping the same thing. Playing Diablo lll single player is still fun thank goodness.

Bashing the platform you don't like will get you bad karma. Xbox Live and PSN have been far from perfect over the past year, both have had their issues. The guys that did this are cyber terrorists - no platform is immune from their bs.

Not sure this has anything to do with the attacks earlier today, xbx live users get these messages from time to to time. Its actually a limited few experiencing sign in issues.aint home but i just called my brother to confirm this he has been playing pvz and titanfall with his friends. Most services are still up and running.

More like: Just trollin'

Guy, there are plenty of people all over the world using PSN right now and have used it all day. PSN was down mostly in major US cities, Europe and Australia.

But not all of the cities in those countries. And, so? You think a few people posting on N4G that their XBL isn't affected somehow validates your statement?

Why? All it does is make XBL more of a target. Why are getting off on other people not enjoying gaming?

What sense does that make? All it does is make you more of a fanboy?

And then there is this:

I just got off Xbox one, been playing since 7pm. Just heard about this just now, didn't even know it was any issues.. What I understand it's a internal issue, but people are making it like its a hacking issue?

Man these hackers are a bunch of douchbas. Go pick on the CIA or FBI. But no douchbad squad don't have the balls to and have to pick on gaming companies
Slacker  +   534d ago
Lives core services are restored. Gaming and chat are still limited, and seem to be limited to only chat in Diablo III. I doubt this was the same sort of attack on PSN, but instead something else. Who knows? Is anyone able to anything on PSN yet? Mine is still down (East coast).
