Xbox Live down on December 1 with 80151909 error

We thought we had seen the last of Xbox Live outages, but unfortunately it looks Xbox Live is down today on December 1 for the wrong reasons. Reports are now widespread with Xbox Live 80151909 errors and suggestions the Xbox Live has been hacked by the LizardSquad group again.

At the moment, we are having Xbox Live problems as well, with our Xbox Live login completely down and unavailable at this time. We can see that LizardSquad are once again claiming responsibility for this, as you can see from their statement on Twitter which was left just one hour ago.

It is obviously not the first time in which this group has targeted the Xbox Live servers and somehow they have once again managed to break through Microsoft’s security.

After the first time, we would have thought that Microsoft would step up their protection services, but obviously these people have still found a way and it’s obviously extremely frustrating for those involved.

Interestingly, the Xbox Live status checker page suggests that there are no problems at the moment with Xbox Live Core servers ‘up and running’, but we definitely can’t log in right now.

Give us your thoughts on this. Is Xbox Live not working for you in your area at the moment, or are you able to get in? What do you say to LizardSquad in response to this?

I was unable to log in for a few hours here in central Alabama from around 6-10 PM CST. Now that I am back on though, anything I try to use doesn’t work and I get an error saying “this game requires an Internet connection” even though I am online. I can’t play any games requiring internet and the same goes for video apps and other things. I don’t believe it is my Xbox given the fact that this started after the outage. But of course the Xbox Live status page shows no problems. I think it is ridiculous for… Read more »

I think it’s childish. Maybe they could spend their time feeding the hungry or tutoring less fortunate kids. I am sure the lizards are spoiled, insecure little kids in grown up bodies. Thank you for not allowing me to finish the movie I rented on Vudu. I’m a working single mom struggling to get by and this was a little treat for my son and I. Now I get to pay twice for the movie.

Down in Pittsburgh PA. Why do they put they’re ‘incredible hacking skills’ to good use instead of bringing down the morale of the worldwide game community. They call us ‘no lifes’ but look at these hackers bringing down gaming servers. For what reason? Glory? A few servers will never stop gamer nation.

THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS!! It’s been down in Texas apparently since the moment the tweet went out, but I was not on twitter and just before I found this post, I almost started crying because I can’t buy another console for my 9 yr old for christmas. Now at least we can go to sleep, I hope I haven’t screwed up the system with all my furious attempts to “fix” the “problem”…

In Australia Melbourne and have the same issue. Can’t access xbox live. Really unfair to do such a thing. I would really like to hear from lizard squad as to why? What are they hoping to achieve.? I now people are upset at how much money game venders make but there are certainly other ways to get your point across.
