One of the biggest Xbox Live outages took place this weekend with Xbox One and 360 owners finding online services down for hours. This has been proven to be the work of Lizard Squad, which is a group of people not only taking credit for Xbox Live going down today, but also causing problems for PSN, Twitch, and other online services.
It isn’t the first time Microsoft’s Xbox Live status has turned to offline after work carried out by Lizard Squad, as many of Product Reviews readers know all too well. The fact is, Lizard Squad returned to Twitter a short time ago and look to entertain followers all weekend by taking other services offline.
At the time of writing, we can see a message 8 hours ago from Lizard Squad on Twitter stating “Xbox Live #offline”. This has been followed with a few other tweets pointing to the fact that Lizard Squad was trending worldwide, and another message telling followers that “This will be an entertaining weekend”. It’s unclear exactly what’s meant by that tweet, although you can count on gamers worrying about Xbox Live and maybe even PSN going down for a large part of the weekend.
Have you seen Xbox Live problems when trying to connect to game servers this weekend? If so, what platform and game couldn’t connect online for you? You can see a tweet left by Lizard Squad, which clearly reveals more plans for the first weekend in December 2014.
You can find the group at twitter.com/LizardPatrol and see they have more followers than ever before. This is currently at almost 93,000 at the time of publication.
