XBox Live Down Possibly Due To Hackers



Attempting to sign on to XBox Live may result in a connection error.

Now it's learned hackers may be responsible for taking down the XBox Live network, which affects XBox 360 and XBox One.

The Lizard Squad on Twitter are taking responsibility for the attack, who also were said to be behind a similar attack against Sony's Playstation network earlier this year.

The group has also promised to take XBox Live down again this Christmas.

Microsoft has yet to comment.

Update: It's said users in Canada and the United States were affected as a result of a denial-of-service attack. The XBox Live servers are now back online (3:04 am ET).
