After a couple of rocky days for Xbox Live users it appears now that Microsoft is still having issues with their online services for Xbox One after initially reporting the services have been restored earlier today.
http://support.xbox.com/en-... it is true. I don't think that Lizard Squad stopped.
It's funny because Lizard Squad was surprised when they heard MS got it up and running earlier than Sony. Hmmm.......
@JC Does any of that really matter right now or ever? XBL is off and on right now and its really gettin under my skin... Sign in issues, Party issues, msg issues. It works one minute then it breaks the next irritating.
@AngelicIceDiamond make sure your ports are open and you have a open nat type on the console. http://support.xbox.com/xbo... Follow this guide and if you have ANY issues with getting it open feel free to send me a PM and I will help you with getting your issue fixed.
It's back up. That didn't last long at all. http://support.xbox.com/en-...
I think it is a a catch 22. In order to stop ddos attacks, they have to limit logins. So in tern some users will have issues logging in
Man seriously? What is going on with XBL and PSN? I thought the 'attacks' had stopped... This just sucks, thanks for ruining some holiday gaming time Lizard idiots. Just because they have no lives, they had to take it out on gamers everywhere. Nice.
The holiday happened. This happens every year due to the massive influx of new users. Squads of Reptiles are overstating their effect on the current situation.
It's true, I tried playing Forza Horizon 2 about 10 minutes ago and it was forcing me to sign in when I couldn't. I guess I'll play MK8 instead because apparently it's too much to ask to play an online game the past 2 days...
I cant join anybody in gta 5. Im sick and tired of not being able to play.
Was playing Forza H 2 no problem updating Halo beta .
Now im getting a feeling that Lizard Squad didnt really do much, has to be all those new consoles getting updated
My PSN is down, but my live works. This is why XBL>>>PSN.
My PSN is up and my XBL is up. I'm not signing out of either anytime soon though.
I hate that. Everything seems to be working fine, reset your console for some reason... and then unable to log back in. It's as though you're fine if you're already logged in. Grandfather claused in lol.
Look another brand new account that trolls, whats new huh. PSN has been up fine and dandy for at least 12 hours now, I say at least because I was using along with thousands of other at 6am AEST this morning and that was 12 hours ago now
Sum of u guys are worst then these moronic lizard balleaters. Instead of worrying about the morons ruining it for both parties u just have to show how much of a co*ksucker u are of your favorite corporation. Good job.
It's such a pathetic level of fanboyism to gloat about which service went up faster. It's the equivalent of two high school girls arguing over who's jock boyfriend is tougher based on which one got up off the ground faster after they were both pummeled by a third grader until their mothers paid him to leave them alone. What an achievement! *slow clap*
" XBL>>>PSN." http://www.businessinsider.... "The easier game network to take down was Microsoft’s Xbox Live. Sony had apparently upgraded its security recently, which took “a bit of time to work around,” but Microsoft had “almost nothing” in terms of security." Trolls trolling trolls, gotta love it
I never had a problem with Xbox Live.
That's odd because everyone else did.
I find it funny because people were bashing Sony for not having a service up and running as fast as Microsoft rambling about how disappointed they were my xbox live was so much better... I don't comment like this too often I just want to certain things dumb and ignorant and you know who you are cuz I know you'll be reading this soon... back on topic I hope Microsoft get it straightened out soon ain't nothing like being addicted to playing online and then having that stripped away I'll keep you guys in my prayers.
Well, this was typed on my xbone and since these reptilian turds are yet to affect my online experience (although, my friends list DID go dark about a month back... for about an hour). I reckon Xbox Live IS better. Maybe I'm in the minority? I'm in Australia, but none of my friends have mentioned connectivity issues... Except for those who also own Playstations (for the record, it feels wierd chatting about Playstation on XboxLive). I can't be sure, but it seems like those affected were mostly 360 users located in particular regions... Services were apparently restored quite quickly. Meanwhile the PSN has been down all over the world for days. Microsoft are great with online infrustructure. Xbox Live is better. If the past few days (and months) haven't made this apparent, nothing will... Beliebers still think Justin's a saint and I'm yet to change their stupid minds. Doesn't mean I'll stop trying... Actually, it probably does. My eloquence is wasted here (he said with no desire to edit).
How do you and I get disagrees when we are stating our own experiences?
(enters fanboy trance) I'm choosing to beliebe that each of my disagrees mean the people want me to remain... A crusader for 'truth', ever-vigilant and slightly aroused. As for the agrees... Agrees mean nothing to me. I troll, therefore I am. (exits trance, soils pants) I love this site!
I haven't had any issues with XBL. And my PSN is back up and running.
Thats true, just because some people are having problems doesn't mean everyone is. Its hard to know who can't sign in afterall PSN is the PS3 and PS4 and x box live is 360 and x box 1- people wrote on reddit reporting issues with the 360 some had issues with x box 1. I was playing fine since christmas day - the attack doesn't effect everyone on live not sure whats' going on with PSN
Well that's unfortunate. Hope it gets up to snuff fast.
That was quick. Just logged in without an issue.
It was literally down for like 10 min. I was on playing Halo with my friends when everything started acting up. So I got off and then looked at the support page and saw it was down so i watched a little TV then almost immediately turned my xbox back on a it was back to normal. Microsoft seems to be catching on to Lizard Squads repetitive DDoS attacks and is resolving them alot faster.
mine work very well, if you get a problem with Xlive send the code that appear on the screen to Xteam.
For PSN users who are having issues try changing the MTU to 1473 in the PS4 Network settings its worked for me and alot of other folk. http://www.dualshockers.com...
I am of the opinion that a lack of any official finger pointing at Lizard Squad (stoopid name) by both MS and Sony only highlights the probability that they are letting them take far too much credance for an inability to maintain their fragile services under the Christmas user surge. And breathe.
Could be an inability to cope with demand, or it could be they just don't want to officially recognise their services were brought down by hackers. Its not something you really want to put out in a press release when you are hoping to show your increasing customer base their console purchase is the right decision and that their system is secure. Staying silent and finding ways to fix and secure it is often better than to spend time accepting your system is exploitable.
I only had a problem with live on Christmas Day for a couple of hours psn was down for a good 2 days!!! Let's not pretend that sonys network is as good or even better than live like some fanboys would hve u believe. Very frustrating but at a lesser extent on live thank god!!!
XBL is a bit intermittent at the moment. Works most of the day but occasional hiccups where servers suddenly drop or occasional log outs. XBL and PSN will get better as they both get used to user numbers on their servers and Lizard Squad discover pornography for the first time.
Despite not being able to use my Xbox One xmas gift on xmas day, I 've totally had zero issues since December 27 on PSN nor Xbox Live. But hey, at least they don't screw with Nintendo ...Never really experienced any issues with Wii U online connectivity, but I guess that's because maybe these Lizard Squad Videogame Disrupters (I refuse to call them Hackers) see Nintendo as a low profile target, IDK? ;/
Ive been able to get on XBL no problem...havent tried playing online, but friends are up, some achievements just synced with system. I cant really say for PSN as I no longer have a PS4. Seems to me from reading alot of comments that PSN is having the tougher time with the hacks! I hope they get this squared away on both services. Sucks if you cant get your consoles patched.
Please,can people stop using the word 'hack', you are giving them extra credit for something that takes a lot less ability than actual hacking.
Go hack off your fingers then, stop telling people what to do. I know these guys are low grade hackers but you know what? They did enough with their peasant skills to mess up two online networks that still not at 100% fixed. With millions of consumers having issues I'm gonna go ahead and call these losers Hackers!
He's not telling you what to do. He's telling you what's correct. If you were making a cake, you don't say 'I'm cooking a cake'. You say 'I'm baking a cake'. Cooking and baking is just like hacking and ddosing.
"Go hack off your fingers then" what a ridiculous comment but if you want to use it, hacking my fingers off is worse than causing them disruption, so you back up my comment, the severity of the two is completely different. I'm not sure why people get so angry when all you ask is that they post the correct information.
My kids and I start playing, then it says I'm not signed in, and a 10 min countdown timer started flashin crazy. Ridiculous! I bought an arcade game and it will turn off cause I'm not signed in? By no fault of mine. My 6 year old and I dont understand this crap. So played ball outside instead and prob will continue. Video games can lose my money.
It would be nice to be compensated for the lost time that both console's have had due to lizard squad.Top up the accounts with some credit.Xbox live for me has been limited for me for months now.
XBL is hit and miss at the moment - I predict it to be back to normal within a weeky
I've had an issue only with my friends list loading... here in the U.S.
No that is impossibru, Xbox live is the most perfectacular thing in da universe. I have not encountered a single hiccup nor have my fellow Xbots.
