(Update) Xbox Live Goes Down Yet Again

| April 17, 2015

(Update) Xbox Live Goes Down Yet Again News  Xbox Live Down Xbox Live Microsoft

Update 3: Xbox Live should be back up online for the majority of users now.

Update 2: It’s down again right now. Hopefully it comes back online eventually like it did yesterday.

Update: It looks like Xbox Live is back up online now. Don’t be worried if you cannot log-in yet. The system usually needs time to be restored fully.

It’s Friday night in North America, yet Xbox Live seems to be down for a second time this week.

The official Xbox Live status website clearly shows that most of the services are limited at the moment. People cannot sign in using the Xbox One or Xbox 360 consoles. It’s bad timing since Friday night and Saturday are usually times when people relax at home.

You can see a lot of people are tweeting on Twitter right now who are not happy that Xbox Live is down right now. The service was slightly down a few days ago, although it didn’t last very long.

It’s early days now, so nobody knows why Xbox Live is down currently. The Xbox Support Twitter page has only mentioned that a problem has occurred and that they are currently investigating the issue. Hopefully it’s a minor thing and nothing too serious.

Xbox Live and PSN took a hit last year when the Lizard Squad were running rampant. Thankfully the group stopped their DDOS attacks when Kim Dot Com of all people intervened. They’ve stopped causing havoc, although some copycat groups might still be out there.

We will update this story when Xbox Live comes back.

          • chi-towns finest

            It’s not hacked. It’s just a server overheat or overload or something that knocked the juice out for a bit. It’ll be back but they sure do take forever. Microsoft needs to go back to the basics

          • Pretty Panther

          Is xbox live down? Am in pensylvania and it won’t let me sign in

          • Julie Hurford

            Yep they’ve hacked it yet again

          • werter2000

            Well I don’t know what do you think?

      • Hello

        Fos

      • chi-towns finest

        Do you have a ps4?? If not then you can’t say it goes down more. Your basing off what you read. But it’s not nearly as bad as Xbox one. Microsoft tried too hard to make the one an “entertainment device” instead of a plain ol simple Xbox. That’s why they’re losing to the ps4 this go around. They need to shape up.

        • Karl Nelson

          I have both consoles and psn is indeed down more often and for longer periods of time.

          • $7170342

            I have both consoles and in 2015 xlive has been down more. In past years psn was down more.

        • beddachedda

          that’s what you think, ignoramus.

        • Tätįänä Märįė Áyäłä

          They make it just a plain old xbox you people start complaining. They give you more your still complaining. So many people are getting mad at xbox and Microsoft and defending Sony when Sony had their shares of failures I bet. None of you own the 2 companies last I checked so you don’t know how it overload when you people play too much. Nor do you know the difficulity it is to deal with your complaining and your act of sense to know everything there is to know about the systems. So unless your the owner of the company who knows the statistics and information, I suggest you keep your mouth shut.

          • FloridaSun72

            Sony has never disappointed when releasing a new console. MS has no idea what its doing this gen.

        • Quan Chi

          A gaming console IS an entertainment device dumbass. They gave me a alll in one console instead of giving me a “pure gaming” console that can’t even stay at 60 fps.

          • FloridaSun72

            problem is almost everyone has had multimedia technology for years already. All gamers wanted was the best gaming console their favorite company could provide and instead MS out smarted themselves and made a hybrid that actually weakens the gaming aspect of the machine with weaker hardware.

          • :^)

            What’s wrong with adding features? The PS3 had all of those. Were you ragging on them?

          • FloridaSun72

            Features are fine. When features come at the cost of having inferior games then theres something wrong. Last i checked gaming consoles are sold to play games. Having features are a bonus unless said features are still added even if the designers know it will compromise the quality of the games.

          • FloridaSun72

            Most gamers dont want an all in one device otherwise sales would be reversed.

      • Pretty Panther

        bullshit

      • Country Boy Lucifer

        Bullshit, maybe last gen but not this gen

      • Allen

        Says a dumb ass xbot that likely doesn’t even have nor ever experienced PSN. You idiots need to get it straight. Sony was hacked because they sued Geo Hotz for finally jail breaking the PS3 to allow pirated games. Xbox did nothing of the sort on 360 and let them run rampant.

        Then PS3 and PS4 just have more maintenence HOWEVER YOU CAN STILL PLAY ONLINE. THE ONLY THING DOWN IS THE STORE AND THAT’S ONLY FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS.

        Now Xbox is getting hacked or having network problems as often as a two bit whore goes down on new years eve. Because Xbox live isn’t what you idiots thought it was when you were living in your fearless glory days of 360. False security indeed.

        • Sayge Miller

          Sony is not a competitive council, Microsoft holds almost every MLG councI teams, and the feel of xbox is in itself more competitive. I played Playstation for years; Playstation is a council for RPG’s and 3rd person combat games. Xbox has deep roots in first person shooter and arcade. Xbox alsI was the first to establish reliable online gaming experience for council play.
          Sony really can only brag that it is child friendly, and hosts God of War and little big Planet. But Xbox has Halo. And Halo has a larger following than most games, only comparable to CoD.
          Playstation controlers areally far too small for a grown person. And the ps4 controllers are the same size as ps3 when Microsoft has more ergonomic controllers every Gen.
          I have Been gaming since street fighter for the sega, and dune2000 for the PC. And I only get Playstation for infamous, God of War, and little big planet. Games I play alone. All of my online play is on xbox.
          Psn is unreliable. Microsoft updates while keeping everything actIve. I remember it being down for litrally 1min. When I was online one night a year ago. And then updates for my system were ready. I trust Microsoft. But Sony made PS for casual play, not serious play.
          xbox even has blueray now. So Sony has nothing.

          • Gameshark 979

            Sony has been made for casuals? Is this why Microsoft has a better ui suited to friends, which in all reality, is as casual as you can get. I find ps3 controllers better, but I don’t is controllers as I play PC. Seriously, your comparing things that don’t need to be. The console is not you, you so not need to defend it.

          • FloridaSun72

            are you kidding? nothing screams casual like an xbox with its dudebro fps community. try some bloodborne then tell me about casual.

          • :^)

            Really? All the shooters sold the best on PS4. Quit running from facts.

          • Sayge Miller

            Fps competition players are almost all on xbox.
            fix your life.

          • FloridaSun72

            When theres twice as many PS4s out there wouldnt having higher sales for every multiplat be expected?

          • $7170342

            Like street fighter is competitive? Oh wait ps4 exclusive. Lol

          • Sayge Miller

            Street fighter was a sega hit that was left in the rubble.
            Halo out sells all PS exclusives And is still growing.

          • $7170342

            Lol tell that to the world wide street fighter competitions that now can only take place on ps4. Halo halo halo. No one cares anymore.

        • seymour butts

          Hacked? They weren’t hacked. It’s called a DDOS attack. Who’s the dumbass now? There’s a big difference. Maybe you should learn the differences

      • $7170342

        Link sources or you made that up. In 2015 xtots have been down more not psn.

      • FloridaSun72

        Still a weaker console with less exclusives.

      • XbotMK1

        Xbox fanboys are defending Xbox Live. Xbox Live and PSN have been having about the same amount of outages. But more so Xbox Live recently.

    • america

      Bet you love them asain balls in your mouth you Fucking communist

    • communist

      I salute u comrade

    • Julie Hurford

      Wouldn’t matter if it was xbox or PS .. these hacker dogs will attack them both .. might have to resort to the old school PC games … whatever enjoyment these low lives get from hacking our gaming
      structure is beyond me … NOT HAPPY!!!!!

    • You dumb

      Retarded for even possibly having that thought lmao and not to mention you said ps3, even if you meant ps3 smh

    • TheColdHardTruth

      Yeah everyone join PlayStation and watch as Sony goes under and PlayStation doesn’t exist anymore, because the fact is Sony is loosing so much money they will have to stop producing PlayStation.

      • Wakaba

        Fkxz ps sony got hacked by Korean douche bagz… microsoft hasnt been hacked like that…

        • soCALrepublican

          Sony was already having issues before that.

      • Country Boy Lucifer

        Made a profit last quarter and stated ps4 is the cornerstone of the business moving forward

        #themoreyouknow

        • Your God

          So what if they made profit? Not only does it not confirm that they’ll have a fully profitable year, but even if they do, they’re still years in debt that’ll take years to get out of.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            You realise all company’s even ms are massively in debt?

            That’s how companies work.

            They lend to pay for business ventures and keep there money banked and pay off the loans with interest.

            Educate yourself

          • Your God, again

            Yet MS is the one making profit. Sony…only a quarter…

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            MS isn’t making profit through it’s gaming division, Sony is.

            I only really care about the gaming division, it’s the only thing that effects me

          • FloridaSun72

            MS hasnt made a dime on consoles. The xbox division has been losing money since day one.

      • FloridaSun72

        Lol xbot logic. Truth is x1 will be the last console made by MS. Sony cut their divisions that were dragging them down and are focusing on whats selling.

        • TheColdHardTruth

          On the contrary PS4 will also possibly be the last console Sony will make because MS and Sony are moving to cloud server type game streaming because the old bulky home console is the thing of the past. It has nothing to do with money.

          • FloridaSun72

            On the contrary consumers like physical items that will always be there as long as theres a system to play it on. If anything all the hacks and connection problems show just how unreliable and unstable digutal streaming and pure downloads can be. The risk of having everything you paid for being damaged or deleted doesnt outweigh a physical disc thats untouchable

      • Sayge Miller

        Thank God.
        then these vergins will shut their inexperienced oral cavities.

      • $7170342

        Sony profit to quadruple this year.

    • Tätįänä Märįė Áyäłä

      That’s stupid. PS doesn’t update their systems to keep it strong. Xbox live does where do you think your money goes or is that just a freakin coincidence.

      • FloridaSun72

        MS updates are just items left out so they could rush the console to market. Still doesnt do anything to make it a better gaming console

  • Colton Leseman

    Don’t even, playstation went down under the attacks as well.

    • Julie Hurford

      Wouldn’t matter if it was xbox or PS .. these hacker dogs will attack them both .. might have to resort to the old school PC games … whatever enjoyment these low lives get from hacking our gaming structure is beyond me … NOT HAPPY!!!!!

      • Julie Hicks

        I’m fine with old school PC games, but my shiny new $100 laptop from Walmart has trouble with Chess Titans. You think I’m being tongue and cheek maybe, but I’m really not. There’s a lot of slowdown.

        • Julie Hurford

          I’m so over this .. isnt there enuf shit in this world & now our fun gaming time gets taken away .. what next?

          • I know, I don’t get it. They are so miserable with their freakin’ own boring ass lives that they have to ruin the rest of the world’s free game time… unreal.

          • Julie Hurford

            Sad state of affairs … seems like the Russians wanna play the role of the Fun Police

          • guzfunkle

            Ur butt

          • Julie Hurford

            Never realised my butt had anything to do with this topic .. but thanks for the mention ;) lol

          Bruh $100 laptop!?! My dude you need to upgrade to that Alienware 17!

  • PissedOffSmoker

    Quit talking about the virgin squad…talking about them only makes them feel cool when in reality they’re just a bunch of wanna be hackers who couldn’t understand anything more complicated than a GUI interface.

    • jared

      Lol GUI interface… ATM machine… PIN number

    • Doug Heuer

      Pretty good wanna be hackers for taking down Xbox live. Constantly. More like actual hackers. The government probably employs them. Made a deal with them to help take out terrorist through cyber warfare. Anyway, I’m not condoning them it’s just obvious nothing being done about these guys and nothing ever will be

      • stupidsheep

        its not hacking retard. learn what a ddos is

        • Julie Hurford

          Lizard squad were doing ddos attacks ..

          • shadow

            Distributed Denial of Service attacks aren’t a “hack.” It’s just basically overloading the servers with login requests that cause the servers to crash, therefore denying the ability to connext

          • julie harford

            Ooo mister birch over here going online so he can sound smart suck a cocktail

          • shadow

            I work as an IT technician and network admistrator

          • Julie Hurford

            Cool .. can you do a better job at fixing this crap than Microsoft ?

          • shadow

            Idk their setup unless I work for them so I can’t give you an answer there

          • Julie Hurford

            You’d think that a company like Microsoft would be a little more secured against these attacks .. thats just my opinion anyway

          • shadow

            There really isnt a way to protect a network from a DDoS attack. DDoS is basically a series of different devices on different addresses, so banning the IPs is virtually useless as they can just keep changing their address. The only thing you can do is bring the servers back up after they crash. What is the killer is that sometimes these attacks cause hardware damage to the point that things need to start being replaced.

          • Julie Hurford

            I don’t understand how these attacks can cause your DLC packs & other gaming content to just van8sh .. how is that so?

          • shadow

            They don’t vanish. Certain DLC requires verification that you legally purchased the content and are on the gamer tag it was purchased on. If it can’t verify the purchase, it won’t allow you to use the DLC. This is a feature developers request Microsoft enforce so they don’t lose money to piracy.

          • Julie Hurford

            So once the servers are back up & things running smoothly again will our dlc’s be back to normal?

          • shadow

            Correct

          • battalfield4 lover

            is xbox on line yet

          • shadow

            Not from what I can tell. Check http://xbox.com/status. They post updates there and if the servers are back online

          • Julie Hurford

            Damn i had to look twice at your name then .. soooo similar to mine lol

          • Julie Hurford

            I was just reading up about lizard squad using configured routers to overload the servers .. wasnt aware of that until I started looking into it further earlier. . Either way its a major pain in the arse

          • werter2000

            Hey man ignore them their just mad cause xbox is down I’m mad too, just I’m not a jerkwad to people on Bing who are just starting the facts and are explaining what it is, thank you for educating me on what it actually is so I don’t have to be a dumbass like them

          • shadow

            It’s no skin off my back. Anyone can talk smack when hiding behind a computer. And you most certainly are welcome. It’s part of my job to make people more aware of stuff like this that exist in the cyber world :)

          • Michael jordan

            You’re all idiots. A ddos is a hack…or you fuck-tards would be able to do…yes there’s programs that help….but it’s still a hack

          • Loser

            How can you call somone a fuck-tard? Yes there ARE programs that help would be the proper way to say that. And what is it us fuck-tards would be able to do?…you kind of stopped short there on the insult. Loser

          • shadow

            I tip my hat to you sir

          • shadow

            If you did you’re research, you’ll come to find that Distributed Denial of Service is NOT a hack. DDoS attacks do not breach or intercept data (definition of hacking). All a DDoS attack does is spam a login server so heavily that it stops authenticating users (hence the name Denail od Service). Next time, do your research and learn the facts before running your mouth and just making yourself look like a complete retard

          • :^)

            How is it a hack? A hack is when actual data, passwords, info, etc are stolen. This is just taking down the servers with bots and traffic. Its not hacking, as anyone can do this.

          • beddachedda

            correct, it’s pussy ass shit, done by a bunch of pussy ass kids

        • Doug Heuer

          Just learned what ddos is. All this time I was a retard! But, not anymore. Thanx stupidfuckingsheep

        • Carl Groll

          same result

      • Julie Hurford

        Damn if I was a hacker i think I’d be targeting banks over gaming lol

      • PissedOffSmoker

        They’re using a GUI interface with purchased software…real hackers look down on what these pussies are doing. Essentially what they’re doing is tricking people into loading the software onto their computers and then bombarding the Microsoft servers with thousands of packets of data. The government wouldn’t waste their time with these mooks. The REAL issue is that Microsoft has some actual hackers acting as security consultants who warned them about things like this and they haven’t taken any actions to secure their own servers.

      • For real…

      • Your God

        These aren’t hacks. These are DDOS attacks which just flood the servers with useless traffic. Literally anybody can do it with instructions from the internet.

    • Quan chi

      Worse decision ever

      • Jameson

        LOL. Yea. Buying a more powerful console with better exclusives backed by a company that actually caters to gamers is a bad decision. You feel free to hang on to that VCR that helps you monitor Fantasy Football stats and play 8 versions of Halo at 900p. lol

    • Dave

      Enjoy the down time love that Sony will show you. Neither side has been immune, in case you’ve been living under a big freakin rock.

  • Guest

    I cant believe the amount of people that still really question The “Mhythic” Lizard Squad. Its Gotta be the Volume of people That are Using Xbox LIVE at this Time, Or is it a Coincident XBL goes down every Friday night ? IDK what do you think? Looks to Me like Microsoft is too cheap to Buy New servers, so they create a Mythic hacking group Called the Lizard Squad cause Microsoft are snakes….

    • america

      Or maybe you just like to have a nice little asain cock up your ass. You fucking communist

    • beddachedda

      ur an idiot, kids are assholes these days, and they get a kick out of fucking with people because todays kids “think” that “trolling” is cool. it’s not. it’s fucking with people to get a reaction, lizard squad is the same little kids just trolling in a different way. they are getting popular and everyone knows their name now. it’s stupid, but we make them popular by talking about them. punish them or give me my fucking money back microsoft, cause this is bullshit

          tbh I think both have some qualities that the others don’t have I have both just for exclusives but I play my xbox one way more it depends on ur preference but I love both of them

        • j

          I play both and ps servers do go down a lot also , man I love ps but sometimes they just suck

        • KingZeroOfTheDarkRealm

          I have. Both don’t make uneducated assumptions.

        • :^)

          That’s funny. Last year PSN went down way more. This is an attack, not an error. Unlike PSN.

    • j

      And it’s not every month did you know that Sony servers are easier to hack than Xbox? They both hav and their flaws but Microsoft puts more money towards their security than Sony

  • Jonathan Chinoo Diaz

    @Teambudybear is hacking the server. Check them out on twitter.

  • Jakob Ramon

    yep i know

  • jim

    I got a ps3 for sale? 120g slim brand new less then 6 hours play time

  • Malicious_Syns

    ddos …… there are ways to backtrack this and destroy the cpu in the their systems ….. fry fry fry

  • Michael Summers

    This is just crap for real! I was hoping to play COD with friends an now I can’t because something always goes wrong with Xbox live.

    • Greg Kellogg

      Been waiting to play all week. Poser hackers…ddos attacks are pretty weak.

  • mike

    I’m glad it’s down

  • mike

    I hope it is down for a week. Amd no in not a hacker. Just an arse. Go outside. Get some exercise

    • Greg Kellogg

      I do all week man. Friday is my lazy sit on my ass day.

    • Blaster

      Dumbass. Who the f*ck are you to tell people what to do. Maybe they already been outside. Maybe they already got some exercise. Dude, seriously. Hit the reset button on your miserable life by hanging yourself tonight.

  • ljt72

    Am so tiered of them can’t play bought mortal kombat and can’t even play the characters I will be going back to ps there is a reason why Sony out sold them they are trash and customer service sucks

    • All Dayy

      Another uneducated comment

      • kish1975

        yes your comment is , because he is right that’s looking at facts up until this month from day 1 of release of the new consoles the Xbox one has been a mess compared to sony on every front from interface not working daily as pics don’t load , leader boards don’t update and so much more . you are the uneducated one with your response as you have no clue but your probably a Xbox fanboy and only have a x1 so you think you need to suck them off at every turn instead of call them out on all there BS like real gamers do because a company wont every change if there are sheep’s like you that condone everything.

        • jesus christ

          Your comment amuses me, you talk about others being fanboys but you sound like the biggest fanboy of them all the way you defend your precious Playstation. I own just about every console and have a built PC, no console or PC is perfect. Sony servers go down just as often as Microsoft servers do as well as Steam servers,things hapoen. You talk about real gamers, yet you are here starting the ignorant console war on every post. Then again, look at your grammar, English, spelling, amd puntuation, they’re awful. I bet any amount of money you only have a Playstation, so next time, get some facts before you open that fat juggalo trap of yours, ignorant nerd.

        • :^)

          Judging from your comment, its clear you don’t own an Xbox. Actually use one instead of making stupid claims.

        • FloridaSun72

          Xbots dont research, they just buy whatever has that MS logo.

  • Welshdog

    This always makes me wonder what the hell cheap ass servers does MS use? Do they not know what failover is? Do they not know about mirrored redundant computers likes banks use? Obvious they are cheap and don’t care.

    • Greg Kellogg

      Problem is ddos affects public facing servers (the kind that Xbox and Playstation use). Unless you make the servers private and establish secure connections to every person that has a xbox (very costly) it’s not going to fix it. All it is, is overwhelming the server with traffic.

    • :^)

      You’re stupid. You can’t prevent a DDOS attack. Even the most fortress like firewall can’t stop it. Do you even know what a DDOS is?

  • mike

    I hope its down for 8 days

  • ksa

    dude you can still play… at least on the one. you just cant talk to freinds. you can play online im playing war frame with freinds.

    • kish1975

      yes but activity list and all the great things there so happy about don’t work and there web page is down to try going into there forums and see what happens .

  • mike

    Down again!

  • Mattwils

    I just bought an xbox one because my girlfriend moved in with me and she left hers in storage. Xbox just caused us to have our first fight because it took us 2 hours to try and log in and both of us were nerd raging at the tv until we figured out it was down.

    I’m sleeping on the couch.
    Thanks xbox <3

    Edited because flustered.

    • Just Stop

      ……..

    • joeswanson

      lol!

  • CommanderCaptain

    Those retards need to get their stuff together or I’m going selling my xbox to get a pc

    • joeswanson

      i love it when people joke

  • JLeezy

    Thanks Microsoft for phuking up a perfect Friday night. Knew I could count on you >:-(

  • Dave

    XBL goes down. It’s the end of the world. PSN goes down, it’s the end of the world. Come on, people. I wouldn’t pick either side right now. I’m just glad that we don’t have any of the always-online BS that MS was throwing around before the launch of the X1.

  • FoodStampSlayeR

    This is some bullshit man! We gamers deserve a competent corporation that can keep their servers running smoothly with the proper security. Is that to much to ask…

  • Kylan T. Hendricks

    I can sign in but i can’t see my friends

  • Kylan T. Hendricks

    But it’s kinda sad after xbox one goes down once everyone just wants to leave like really guys? Things can’t stay up forever I would hate to see you if the internet ever stops working for good.

    • FloridaSun72

      Well having a crappy next gen console in the X1 was bad enough wasnt it?

  • battalfield4 lover

    this is some shit

  • CC

    Microsoft should give all their members a month free membership. I dont understand how a multi billion dollar company can have so much trouble with issues such as this. They will fix the problem when it is convenient for them to but the rest of us get screwed over.

    • FloridaSun72

      You are talking about the same company that released a cable box as their next gen gaming console that still requires batteries just to play it are you not?

  • CC

    What is the point in upgrading the system when the old system has half of the problems than the new one? Its all about the money since microsoft knows people will continue to pour money into their company regardless of the mediocre shit they try to force feed us.

  • Fuck this shit

    Very pissed the one night I have to myself I’m not ablE to do shit

  • Michael

    Microsoft needs to take proper steps and spend the money needed to stop these kind of attacks if this was one.

  • Majeztick

    They should start issuing credits. I mean you have to pay for a specified amount of time on live and then their system goes down which prevents you from getting on. BS! Get your shit together !

    • werter2000

    • Julie Hurford

      Not at my end

    • edward g

      Its up now guys!!

  • Parker Wilson

    It is a bit upsetting that xbox live is down… I’m more irritated that it has took this long to fix. I understand errors, but this isn’t a typical error, this is much more complex and xbox support are very hush hush on what is going on this time. I would like to know, and there be honesty when things go down. If someone says “error” put our minds at ease by telling us specifically what’s wrong. You will get much more respect for that.

    • Julie Hurford

      Absolutely .. especially when we pay top dollar to use onl8ne services, buy games & then purchase however many dlc’s they throw in on top ..

  • john

    This is fucking sucks and they pick the best time to go down. It show that I’m sign in to xbox live but when I reach the World of Tanks game.., it said that I need to sign in to xbox live.

  • edward g

    Its up now guys!!!!

    • Comando Joe

      damn right

      • Cody French

        We pay enough for this shit not to happen, and come on they are fucking Microsoft. they usually don’t just bang rocks together like this. They need to get there shit together

  • joe

    anyone have any success with live yet?

    • Cody French

      Just tried and nothing. They better reimburse us for lost time, and on a Friday!

  • Jay Jay

    Xbox needs to give us a free month of Xbox live

    • Cody French

      Post that on twitter @xboxsupport

  • piffery

    All of you guys talking shit to eachother. About ps4 or xbox1 being better. Are all dumb. Neither of them are “winning”. Its all just a game. Yes, xbox tried to make it a whole entertainment system. And its kinda shitty right now. So you can say ps4 is better. But after a couple more hard updates. When xbox1 isnt fucked up and reaches its full potential.. Well. Youll see. But either way. Lots of people got the ps4 because xbox was going to be more expensive, and you couldnt share games, play offline, and you had to sign in once a day or some shit. But hey. Its a whole new system now. Not just a prettier ps3. Sooo, who is winning?. Definately pc. Better graphics. Better games. Better.. Everything.. Except parties and shit.

    • TheColdHardTruth

      And who made the first and best operating system for PC to this day you ask? Microsoft!

    • FloridaSun72

      Lol xbots using PC to defend themselves now.

      Btw price had nothing to do with how this gen started. Regular people actually took a little time to research the 2 systems to realize which is better and not just automatically getting the one with a MS logo on it.

      You got one thing right. The PS4 isnt winning, its an outright slaughter.

  • anonymous

    No they purposely do this so you can go and buy the xb1 cause they packed up so many shit on 360 that the system can’t keep up anymore its part of its greedy business same to sony. They do this so you can move on buy the new consoles more money for them. Example I wait for mortal kombat X to release on 360 or ps3 version and they screw the people who wants to buy it on the day it release instead they decide release to the new console so if you want to play that certain game you cant wait to play for the old console itll make you go buy the new console so they can make more money out of you. Gaming industry is greedy believe that.

    • Michael AntiHeroic Edwards

      you do realize that this also happened on XB1.. right?

  • Big B

    It’s working fine at my house.

  • the Xbox gamer

    I am not giving up on Xbox I think they are the best they know what there doing and that’s all I care about I don’t care if u all think they suck because I’m a Microsoft gamer and that’s what I’ll be

    • FloridaSun72

      If they knew what they were doing they would never had made the X1 as it is and make controllers that dont need batteries.

  • Wolfren Lupus

    I’m just gonna give up on both xbox because they need better internet or learn how to stop this stuff from happening. They are the experts they shold know what’s going on and they should know how to fix it. My brother has been online and been with xbox all his life and never had a problem.

  • DJ Whiteboy

    360 is life had it since i was 11 so get a room ps3 is only for no life moddin fags

  • jesse

    Would everyone stop saying they are going over to ps4 I have ps4 and they are wrost then xbox

    • FloridaSun72

      Lol 20million PS4s to 10 million X1s pretty much says most 360 fans have alreadymoved on.

  • Matthew Sizemore

    I turned on my 360 last night first time in 2 months since my nephew wanted to play some world of tanks. Ran so slow and kept disconnecting. Mario Kart 8 online worked perfect and has yet to fail me and it’s free. Makes me feel better about letting my Gold run out in July. Xbox Live just has far too many trash talking punks the servers can’t handle it.

  • $125882522

    Looks like Xbox Live is having more problems recently than PSN. Oh well…

  • Sean Hero

    Guys, Playstation and xbox are bound to have problems every once and a while, this crap is natural to online gaming. You can’t automatically blame lizard squad for any of this, because when you get into next generation of consoles, there are gonna be issues within the servers. Just relax guys.

  • Dennis

    What’s that? A system has problems? Tell me more about how steam, psn or any other network are problem free. lol.

    Is it annoying? Yes. Is anything perfect?

    • :)

      What’s funny is that people still think its a hack.

      • Dennis

        I know, right? None of what’s been going on with the systems lately has been a hack. Issues, maintenance and the like.

  • :^)

    So many stupid people in here. They think MS can defend against a DDOS attack. NOTHING prevents it. Its completely out of their control when somebody is going to attack.

  • FloridaSun72

    Lol the failure is complete. The one thing xbots held over PS fans heads was the service going down. Well now you can add that to X1s list of things it doesnt do better than the 4. Looks like theres nothing left to convince anyone to waste money on the xboxdone.

    • :^)

      Another retarded fanboy. Most of the time PSN servers go down because of errors. This is because of people.
      Xbox One has more features, better online, a better controller, etc.

      • FloridaSun72

        Notice how most xbots dont mention games as a reason the X1 is better? I forgot features and gimmicky cameras are the future of gaming at the expense of things like having a resolution thats on par with todays standards. But hey if MS still cant figure out how to make controllers that are rechareable and wants you to be able to talk to your console then yea cool go for it.

    • $153867548

      Umm fanboy much? Damn dude i would say stop but then i see you’re as the xbots say a sony pony. I still remember 2011 when psn went and guess what: I didn’t care then or care now about XBL going friday or saturday nights even last year during christmas either only dumbshit sony and xbox fanboys like you. Get off the computer and go outside for awhile cause it happens alot but who cares fanboys do on both sides grow up. God fanboys on all sides ruin everything good about gaming
