Is it because XBL is unhackable?

Hackers are attacking XBL.

Remember, you can't trust SW to paint the whole picture as some people have agendas and slants.

Here's a link (XBL is under attack and is working in limited capacity). This link takes you to a thread made before your thread.

They have tried, but im not sure they could bring down MS's Azure servers like they can PSN or the Riot servers. MS has what.....300k servers?

Thanks for the new updates. I was kind of suprised XBL wasn't attacked.

This has gotten out of hand, i THink gabeN is getting his anti-hacker squad ready, i heard its like the super inernet special forces. They WILL find out who these guys are and where they live.

Yeah. It sucks these hackers hate online console gaming attacking Blizzard, XBL, PSN, Steam, etc.

Maybe change your title since your current thread title is confusing/inaccurate?

Because they can't. XBL is a fortress. Its not an abandoned shack like PSN

@SolidTy: read your link man. It is only limiting chat in one game. Diablo3

#16 Posted by gago-gago (9541 posts) -

Think of it like this, these hackers are swinging at anyone. PSN gets knocked the fuck out while XBL just get bruises.

And with SONY, the current gen 8 leader in console sales, and who also enjoy the most powerful video game console to have ever been created in the history of video games, #1 has some drawbacks.

Its because these hackers attacking Sony are paid by MS (eehhhh damn conspiracy theories)

#26 Posted by tymeservesfate (1960 posts) -

they did try to get into MS's systems, and had some minor results, supposedly. i wouldnt know....my Xbox worked fine all yesterday. but MS's service was a little too secure for them...they couldnt cripple it like they did with Sony's PSN.

Simple really, because MS are the kind to hunt down the perps and force them all to buy and play Kinect games. :o :P

#29 Posted by slimdogmilionar (562 posts) -

A lot of fortune 500 companies use Azure, it's a more complex network than PSN. Even If they bog down a few servers there are plenty more to pick up the slack, M$ has to have a better servers because if they were not protected then they would not have the businesses that they do have. I read an article a while back saying over 57% of the fortune 500 companies use Azure including Apple, these companies would not feel safe using Azure if hackers could just take it down at any second. The hackers could attack Thunderhead which is used to power XBL, but even then the workload would probably just be offloaded to the other servers in the Azure network. If they did succeed in taking down all of Azure they would unleash hells wrath and have all of these multi billion dollar companies trying to track them down.

#30 Posted by Tighaman (975 posts) -

Xbox one was not down one time yesterday. They tried but MS has too many data centers for them to clog traffic it just let you know
XBL>>>>>PSN and dont go saying they did a whole of of other sites .....yes they did but anyone big? NO we are kickstarting the online of the PS4 even though the only ONLINE games we have was killzone and the rest is 3rd PARTY that isn't using PS4 servers .....so what the hell we are paying for?

#31 Posted by coasterguy65 (6019 posts) -

So I take it the whole "PSN is down for maintenance" all day yesterday was actually because of hackers?

@vaderhater: Solidty is a stealth cow troll so he's going to "read" it the way he wants to. Oh and Solid don't even think that MS is getting hit as hard as the kindergarten programmed PSN. Nice try though.

I just saw the news on NBC Today show and they only mentioned Playstation Network. Only mentioning PSN is a huge embarrassment for Sony. This Xbox Live "limited service" thats a few or maybe just one posted here in bold is mainly for Diablo 3 and PBS app. Xbox Live Core services are up and running. After being down the PSN is under maintenance again today. I hope the Sony guy who had his flight rerouted finally made it to where he had to go so he could get to work and resolve this PSN issues already.

Ehmm.. party chat on Diablo 3 and PBS app is what have issues - also my xbox have been turned on and been on xbl fora couple of days - zero sign-out no nothing (yet :P )

Not really the same caliber as PSN and various sites so far.. anyway

http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status

"

Hi Xbox members. Are you having trouble connecting to Party Chat on Diablo III on Xbox One and Xbox 360? Additionally, Xbox One users, are you experiencing server unavailability issues? Us too, but we’re working alongside our partner to get these issues fixed ASAP! We’ll keep you posted when we have more information. In the meantime, thanks for staying patient."

And even with that i got no issues, can party chat just fine weird.. (Also Limited)

also ;

Anonymous responded to his Vatican /xbl post with this however, Anonymous ‏@W0rIdPeace 7h

@LizardSquad You have no proof that you have done any of the things you claim.

They made alot of claims, that were not true at all fyi.. but xbla could have been ddos'ed dunno, but seems like it didnt have much of an impact if at all on xbl, atleast here *knocks on wood*.

@animeishomo: That is due to diablo 3 still lol.. and no xbl dl speed are quite faste yes.. getting full speed out of my 60/60

No, it's widespread. Remember, even with 300,000 servers, SONY's PSN network is still superior to Microsoft's. Microsoft has inefficient engineers. $3 billion R&D on Xbone APU and it's a disaster compared to the PS4 APU which cost $5 million in R&D.

Also for the bolded part : are you effing drunk lol xbl>>>>>>>>psn by a long shot. and are you really still trying to reach with the R&D numbers ?.. guess some will keep on tryin'.

Also you sure sound alot like brofists..

Xbone download speeds are atrocious. Stop defending shit service.

its all for diablo 3. because blizzard also got hit with a DDOS. everything on XBL within MS itself is fine including titanfall and FM5 dedicated servers. The unavailable servers are blizzards servers for diablo 3. but please keep twisting stuff to make godny look better in your eyes

Lol and so are plenty of people on XBL. but some people are affected due to blizzard having an issue.

Listen I know your a hardcore sony lover, and there is nothing wrong with that, but they got hacked, again. Just grow up and accept that its the truth. its not even a big deal, it was only down like 8-12 hours.

I have an Xbone too. I dont want to see any service be attacked. In my opinion a DDOS attack is not a hack, but anyways, my credit card it STILL on there, even from the major breech before. Not a dime missing. :D
