Destiny Servers Taken Down By Hacker Group Lizard Squad

"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. :/

joydestroy3292d ago

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.

Giul_Xainx3291d ago

You know what? Lizard squad should die

Lord_Sloth3291d ago

Can we stop using the term "hacker" to describe script kiddies using a DDoS?

BiggerBoss3292d ago

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

smt_Nocturne3292d ago

they really picked a bad time to attack destiny.
Agent of nine should disappear any minute now.

AngelicIceDiamond3292d ago

(Sigh) SMH. This is why I HATE always online games...

Because of stupid stuff like this takes place....

CerebralAssassin3292d ago

Stupid people is the problem. What comes out of attacking a game like destiny? Nothing...

elsuperamigo3292d ago (Edited 3292d ago )

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???

gootimes3292d ago

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.

KwietStorm_BLM3292d ago

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.

DLConspiracy3292d ago

It would be a lot cooler if these kids had a purpose but I guess boredom is there spirit emotion.

MrPink20133292d ago (Edited 3292d ago )


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.

Chuuzuu3291d ago

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.

FanboyKilla3291d ago

@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.

TheRacingX3291d ago

it was only down for 10min for me so no biggie.

VealParmHero3292d ago

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

Kivespussi3291d ago

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.

Cool thought I was going crazy... Guess it back to cod ghost why me :(

Edit: its back up

MorePowerOfGreen3292d ago (Edited 3292d ago )

The issue is on XB1 as well. I was fighting the Archon priest and it only had a sliver of life and BAAAMMM!!! booted :(


Yeah. I assumed that. The article was wondering what Platforms were affected.

randomass1713292d ago

PSN and XBL are not affected. This is something to do with Activision and Bungie's servers unfortunately. :(

jobboy3292d ago

servers down here in italy :(

rainslacker3292d ago

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?

Letthewookiewin3292d ago

Dam right in the middle of a strike :(

moegooner883292d ago

Apparently Call of Duty servers as well have been attacked, can anyone confirm ?

LazyGoron3292d ago

My entire network is down, PSN is down
