New Lizard Squad Twitter dictates Xbox, PSN status

- Dec 25, 2014

There is a new Lizard Squad Twitter account with a group or user, which seems to be playing god with the status of Xbox Live and PSN today. They are taking both of these services offline, as they see fit and are even calling themselves “a dox god”.

You can find one of their latest tweets below that states, “10,00RTS and we will stop smacking #Xbox and #PSN offline”. This follows previous messages telling the 50,000 plus followers, “XBOX LIVE AND XBOX.COM #offline”.

If you own an Xbox One, 360, PS3, or PS4, you might be having problems signing in to the stores or playing games like Destiny, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, or EA’s FIFA 15 today, which seems to be directly due to a DDOS taking online play down today.


We cannot be 100 percent certain, but this Twitter account seems to be by those behind the outages on December 25, 2014. Christmas Day could see one of the biggest attacks on gaming services in years, and it’s certainly shaping up that way so far today.

Another tweet within the last couple of minutes states, “North Korea offline”. Again, it’s not clear what that means, but this is certainly a targeted attack at many online servers and one that shows those behind the Twitter account are capable of pulling this off.

What online servers are offline for you right now and if related to Xbox Live and PSN, what game are you having problems with right now?

    If they are such great hackers why waste time on a gaming network. The lizard squad is a bunch of jack-offs who are only happy when others are miserable. The name lizard fits perfectly, they are not worthy of the title of human.

      Ddos is not even hacking.. just kiddie bs.

    So this group is demanding better online conditions and better security. But they actually have the means to pull these services offline. I’m both incredibly pissed, and kind of impressed with this groups tenacity. Personally I’d hate to deal with their stresses of being caught. So interested in what happens with this group!

  • E1337

    A lower setting means a better connection when 6 or more people are connected on the same server. An example would be destiny or gta 5.

  • E1337

    RTS & Fragment Threshold Settings. The lower the threshold settings the better connectivity.

  • Static

    • Treet

      • egarcia1360

        He means that it could mean 1,000 and the comma was in the wrong place, or it’s 10,000 and they missed a zero
