Update: Lizard Squad Takes Down Xbox Live

by Damian Seeto

The Lizard Squad are up to their old tricks again as they have managed to take down Xbox Live for the time being.

The official Lizard Squad Twitter page sent out a simple message just saying: “Xbox Live #offline”.

If you visit Twitter right now, many people are moaning that Xbox Live is down right now for them. Gamers can only blame The Lizard Squad for this mess. These guys have been taking servers down since August of this year.

The Lizard Squad have been doing DDOS attacks on gaming servers for several months. Servers for PSN, Destiny and several EA games have been down thanks to this one group.

The Lizard Squad were quiet for a few weeks when Twitter suspended their account. They’ve created a new page and have started annoying gamers once again.

The Lizard Squad taking down Xbox Live was a “Christmas Present” to Microsoft the group said. They threatened this is just preparation for more things to come during the lead up to Christmas.

It will be annoying if PSN and Xbox Live goes down for Christmas during the days people have off from work or school. It looks like these guys don’t care. You better be prepared to play offline video games if these guys are still around…

Update: It appears Xbox Live is starting to come back online for some gamers. Still, The Lizard Squad have said more attacks are coming…
