"Destiny’s servers seems to be down, according to several users. The error shown in the picture above appears every time someone tries to log into the Destiny servers."
I was in the middle of the strike mission on Venus when the servers went down... almost beat it too. :/
i think a lot were on strikes. including myself. all of my friends dropped out so i went to orbit. then it kicked me.
BS that some sad people have to go and mess with other people having fun.
You know what? Lizard squad should die
Can we stop using the term "hacker" to describe script kiddies using a DDoS?
Omg same here, the one on the northern part of Venus. I thought my wifi was going out but guess not. I'm getting really tired of these guys
they really picked a bad time to attack destiny. Agent of nine should disappear any minute now.
(Sigh) SMH. This is why I HATE always online games... Because of stupid stuff like this takes place....
Stupid people is the problem. What comes out of attacking a game like destiny? Nothing...
Yeah and to think Microsoft wanted a always online console! Whit all the bad stuff that can happen every day like getting hack or losing your internet connection or having bad internet in some parts of the world where are the fools that were defending that monstrosity now???
^ It could happen with PSNow though, or any online required service. The problem is are these people that want attention. It only hurts the gamers.
Even if the game wasn't always online, you still wouldn't be able to play ONLINE. And don't say well you could play single player, because guess what? That obviously isn't going to matter to people actively playing Destiny, ONLINE.
It would be a lot cooler if these kids had a purpose but I guess boredom is there spirit emotion.
elsuperamigo, This issue is on Bungie's servers, not XBL or PSN. Microsoft's original idea for an always online system would require a 24 hour check in, when was the last time you couldn't connect online on the Xbox One for 24 hours? I'm not defending those policies as I thought it was really poorly thought out but let's not turn what's happened on Destiny into the Xbox One wouldn't work because of hackers.
It's not the game, it's these "hacker" losers that are the problem.
Online security sucks. Its not just for games its for anything.
@elsuperamigo dont know, but i know where the people who were hating on it are. On their ps4 playing an online only game. Lmfao Remember what was said about titan fall being an online game? Of course you dont. Lol Sorry fellas he deserved it. Lizard hacks destiny and he is bashing microsoft. Thats too salty i wont eat it.
The whole thing I hate, bringing down game servers, cheating in online games....WHAT DO YOU GET FROM CHEATING??? you're so bad at gaming that you have to ruin it for everyone else????.....good for you you Pieces of S*#T....
it was only down for 10min for me so no biggie.
Just beat that one about 20 min ago. idk how long ago this happened but I didn't seem to have any probems. Seriously though...Lizard squad? These people think they're cool or something like that? Idk I just don't really get it. What do they gain from this. Pretty weird
They're just a bunch of assholes. I guess they enjoy the attention they get. Did anyone already hear that they tweeted John Smedley a picture of his dad's grave? That's just sick.
Its the weekend again, no school so they can all stay up and hack servers again.
Cool thought I was going crazy... Guess it back to cod ghost why me :( Edit: its back up
The issue is on XB1 as well. I was fighting the Archon priest and it only had a sliver of life and BAAAMMM!!! booted :( EDIT Yeah. I assumed that. The article was wondering what Platforms were affected.
PSN and XBL are not affected. This is something to do with Activision and Bungie's servers unfortunately. :(
servers down here in italy :(
Seems like Lizard Squad is going to take credit for every internet hiccup out there. Many are saying it wasn't out for very long, and is likely an issue with Activision servers. Thing is, not every server error is a hack. Sometimes things just go bad for other reasons. Giving credit to LS just because of this is rather premature. On another note...weren't there reports that some of their members were already caught?
Dam right in the middle of a strike :(
Apparently Call of Duty servers as well have been attacked, can anyone confirm ?
My entire network is down, PSN is down
where are u from? i am playing right now. btw. i am from germany.
PSN is not down.
PSN down for me too
@LazyGoron That's your internet, buddy. lol
Southeast Texas, I've been playing Minecraft on ps4 with my friend for hours, no issues here.
PSN is fine on my end. But at least now I know why it wouldn't allow me to do strike missions. It said I need a PS+ subscription and I was like WTF are they talking about? So I went to the PS4 UI and I was connected to PSN and could enter the store smd sync my trophies with no problems. Rebooted the PS4 and still can't play strike. At least now I know why. Oh well. I will just explore for more loot and do side missions until things work themselves out.
PSN is fine for me. Bravo hackers, you're really something special. /s If you're going to hack something, go for shady governments or companies with questionable business practices. Don't waste your time on bringing a damn game down.
So PSN goes down or a couple people and the first reaction on N4G is to deny it and jam disagree.
As you can see by your disagrees nobody believes you troll. This has nothing to do with PSN , this is on Activision who need to seriously beef up their security if they can be taken down so easily by a nothing hacker group. PSN IS NOT DOWN.
@MysticStrummer 'If you're going to hack something, go for shady governments or companies with questionable business practices.' Like Microsoft then?
yep i played a few rounds then it went down for about 5-10 minutes now its back up.
I am getting PSN sign in fail right now. Can't connect to any game online
Issues on XB1, booted me out of a crucible match. Couldn't sign back in for 15 min, but they're currently back up :-)
These guys need to get laid or something. They seriously have no life.
I'm pretty sure this guys never talk to a woman without having to give their credit card number first.
I don't think getting laid is the answer. He may wake up with more than he wanted, therefore fueling the rage some more /s
Didn't you read the update? They're popular. from the article: "Update 3: Popular hacker group Lizard Squad has taken credit for Destiny’s servers being down."
My lil bro just finished playing Ghost and now he's on Destiny. Edit:He was kicked off but should be able to log back on.
"Hackers" - More like bored idiots. They are not hacking anything.
Just a buncha candy-ass script-kiddies. It's an insult to call them "hackers", these kids have no talent whatsoever.
This is the problem with online only games. If something happens to the servers the game is a 65 dollar paperweight until they come back online.
All games, imo, should provide you with the option to play on and off line and should provide a meaty single player experience. It would be nice if you could grind as a solo player offline then transfer any experience earned offline to online gameplay.
I think that a single player campaign is not needed. If the servers go offline and the single player campaign is a horrible piece of crap, you would go play some other game anyway. So if the main focus is MP, do a proper SP mode or don't do it at all and use that time and recourses to polish and add stuff to MP. That's just my opinion though
Theses guys are assholes... I understand that they may not like the game or the companies responsible for making the game, but I work hard for my money so why should they F with all of us people that actually paid and are enjoying what we paid for? These self righteous hackers act like they're doing us a favor or something. You wanna do us a favor LizSquad? Shut the hell up and leave us all alone. Bunch of ass hats.
agreed! i wonder what they're thinking in their hole... "man everybody thinks were awesome!" "i know! were the bestest!" seriously, gamers are the ones that hate them the MOST! also, i wonder how long they'll take to catch since they wont let up... 1 attack is one thing, once you keep doing it, people with hundreds of millions of dollars will be demanding your head, they're much more influential to the government than us... sadly lol!
Instead of producing something, they waste their abilities on this. That's worse than doing nothing.
Can someone please do something about these assholes?
The FBI is working on it. I think they caught a couple of them but the problem with cyber criminal groups is that you can't really get them all at once and they are regenerating extremely fast by getting more people in. The only thing those idiots will cause in the long run is stricter internet monitoring by the government in general.
Hopefully these thugs can be identified and brought to justice. On a side note, that's the core issue with these always-online games. If the servers are taken down or otherwise affected, you're left with a shiny plastic paperweight.
Hacker group????? Lmfaooo OKAY!
I thought most of these guys got caught. Wasn't there a story about it a while back?
I'm in the Crucible right now. no problems here :) update: random drop from destiny servers that i have never experience before back online now tho
it's funny there are hacker groups that do this stuff to protest something lizard squad just seem to want to cause the people problems :(
I have been having that problem on and off for the past week and seems just random as to when it happens as i can get in a few hours with no issues yet other times within minutes of starting i get booted back to set destination screen
Well, at least I know that it wasn't just me. Seems like it's back up, going to restart my strike again.
WTF I thought these assholes were put in jail?
Come on. These guys are at it again?
These guys are losers. I dont own destiny but I hate it when idiots like this ruin the experience for others.
