    If you have been experiencing issues connecting to Xbox Live recently, it is due to the LizardSquad making a return and giving Microsoft "A Wonderful Christmas Present" they recently Tweeted:

    Less than seven hours ago the hacker group attacked the Xbox Live servers with a massive DDos attack which took the service offline. The group took credit for the downtime by Tweeting #Offline:

    Although most Xbox Live services are currently back online, with the exception of the Xbox Live Friends List on Xbox One and Xbox 360, this is just the start of the attacks on the Xbox Live services according to the group:

    Apparently the recent downtime was just a "small dose of whats to come" over the Christmas period.

    It would seem anyone getting an Xbox 360 or Xbox One this Christmas is going to be pretty upset when they can't connect to Xbox Live during the Christmas period.
    Xbox Support have yet to comment....

    But like, why? Do they want people to know there name for a few days and then never be heard from again? What's the point?

    At least it's not as bad as the asshats that took down Xtralife's stuff.

    I'm kinda peed of about this!
    Why would you do this, seriously what satisfaction would you get from stopping millions of people from playing online?
    Probably some really sad 30 year old lowlife who lives in his mothers basement.
