If xbox live goes down during Xmas day when people are getting consoles for christmas then Lizard Squad are some very sick people. I understand groups like annoymous hacking the KKK twitter and other hate groups but going after gamers who have done nothing wrong is out of order.

I agree, but I suspect it's the companies they're trying to disrupt and they're using disgruntled customers as their road in. It's not clever, just mean.

They're a complete waste of space and they infuriate me. If they must do this sort of rubbish, they should find a way to achieve their goal without innocent parties being impacted by their 'work'. Or, just get a life.

These loser are not hackers, they send out DDOS and call themselves hackers? Get real. I'm pretty sure another hacker group will go after them. HOpefully exposing their identities as well.

Even though I don't like M$, but fuck this Lizard squad or wtf they called themselves for ruined everyone Christmas. I hope the FBI or CIA just hunt these loosers down and imprison them for life, that would stop any other idiots trying to do these sort of thing in the future

Apparently a couple of them were arrested after the attacks a couple months ago...according to their twitter anyways. Don't know what came of it.

I don't know why this article looks at their possible motivations. They make it pretty clear. They aren't fighting for any kind of consumer advocacy, they just want more twitter followers. They say they'll stop attacks when people follow them. Pretty dumb if you ask me.

I dunno though, given how annoying they've become, I think some of their targets should be pushing for more legal action against them. I'm sure there are plenty of people that can do the research on who they actually are.

I think both PSN and XBL will be taxed pretty heavily on Christmas day. Same as launch day for both consoles. That's what happens when millions of people try to log into the system on day one...most probably downloading lots of updates.

Absolute dicks. Seriously.... why ruin it for gamers? Go hack NASA or the CIA and find out the stuff they are hiding from us... what's being achieved here? At least hack psn prices to be cheaper.... even then its wrong.... but still!

"At least hack psn prices to be cheaper.... even then its wrong"

Not when they are about 20% more expensive than retail

I like how you two turned this around on Playstation. Good job guys. I was about to post that no matter what console you own you need to be against groups like these. And then i saw your loaded comments. By the way, NASA? Really?

Paprika1174d ago (Edited 1174d ago )

I'm not opening a debate between consoles. I use psn, the prices suck... so I naturally joked they should hack prices to be super cheap.

NASA... yeah, another joke. Basically if you believe they are a front organization hiding a true space program which doesn't use archaic rockets.... but that's another subject entirely lol! Google it... I'm outa bubbles for stating dark cloud 2 is better than ni no kuni.... lol

Yeah, NASA... It's hiding aliens from us!!! They knew it all along! :D
Jesus, this people and their conspiracy theories.

Hmm, lizard squad aren't really experienced hackers tho. They don't really 'hack' anything, so them 'hacking' the CIA would be impossible.

CorndogBurglar1174d ago

All they are doing os DDOS. They haven't actually hacked anything. They wouldn't know where to begin to hack NASA or the CIA. They called in a bomb threat to an airline, so I definitely don't think they would be scared to hack the CIA. They just have no real skill.

RedDevils1174d ago

You sound like that guy in GTA looking for the alien lmao
