Just a few moments ago we detailed the growth of Lizard Squad’s Twitter page and at the time we saw a message talking about resuming chaos. Literally, right after publication it seems Xbox Live is not working across the globe with thousands of reports of an outage from the UK to United States.
It seems Lizard Squad is so confident with the power they have that we even received a pre-warning with the said tweet. While we don’t agree with what they are doing, it does reveal the power they have other Microsoft’s servers with the ability to take Xbox One and the 360 down at the flick of a switch.
Is Xbox Live not working for you right now and if so, what city are you seeing the servers down in? This story is developing and we will be publishing more details as we get them, any response from Microsoft over the power Lizard Squad has with causing massive problems to their gamers, and of course updates direct from the Lizard Squad Twitter channel.
Update: Our readers have so far confirmed the outage in Louisiana, London UK, New York, Berkeley CA, Michigan, and many other areas. This is truly a global outage and one it looks like Microsoft are powerless to stop, along with Sony’s PlayStation Network as well when they are targeted.
More updates to follow shortly.
