Lizard Squad's DDoS Xbox Live claim could be false

MWEB GameZone investigated the recent outage of Xbox Live and the claim by Lizard Squad that is was a DDOS attack. As far as MWEB GameZone can determine, the claims are false and the outage is a minor one

So they making false claims? How do we know if the new Twitter account is in fact them? Confused :S

People just love attention. And this is just some snot-nosed kids looking to get some attention

So you are telling me Live had another glitch last night and went down for a reason that was resolved last month. I don't know if it was a hack or just another xbox blunder but there was something last night.

The friends list was down for about 30 mins... Total blunder

I kid you not folks I actually couldn't connect to live this morning.

Not salty. Not trying to put down Xbox in any way. All I'm saying is that I couldn't connect either.

I couldn't connect to either of the 360's in my household last night, then when one connected, the other wouldn't download a dashboard update (it hadn't been used in a while). Today everything worked on both. Also was watching someone play Xbox One on Twitch last night and none of their digital games would connect so they stopped streaming for the night.

Apparently:
- We've contact a source at Xbox about the outage and according to them it was not an attack.
"Seems like some hackers took credit for a Live outage tonight. Doesn't seem legit.. It was a minor outage just affecting US and Canada, and some only had problems with friend list according to the reports I've seen."

Explained in the article no?

Imma make a fake twitter account and call it Mammal Squad and whenever a service gets DDoS imma say it was me
