How is Xbox live been immune to hackers all this time?

Edit- stupid site got a false "censor bypass" in my other one due to italics html messing up. so I retested with this. nvm

------
A hacker group known as "Lizard Squad" posted a tweet to send out to its followers to re-tweet a message stating there's a bomb on one of the American Airline planes that was going from Dallas To San Diego, just after the hacking attempt occurred on the PSN Network that Sony is investigating a recent attack on.

The group targeted this plane because it was carrying Sony Online President John Smedley who also wrote on his twitter that his plane was being diverted after this threat was alerted.

It appears the hacker groups are still bitter over the attack and prosecution against one of their own, George Hotz, who unlocked the PS3's software which allowed users to revert back the system to its previous state.
Although they settled out of court, the groups are still angry and seem to want revenge on Sony and any corporation who go after them for that matter.

Grow up tc. If this Lizard group wanted to target all their effort on XBL they can still do the same if it was their priority. No network is impenetrable. Period. They clearly hate Sony after their George hotz friend got arrested and all that years ago due to Sonys action against him.

pretty much this. MS is a software company so when something like this happens, they respond immediately and correct the issue asap because of the experience with software.

Sony is a hardware company, so it takes them a bit longer to fish out the problem correct it.


a fair and mature point. agree.

Lmfao I am on fire and putting leelee to shame lol deal with it


Just look at message boards. This time when XBL was "hacked" there was barely a chirp, just a wimper. Mlostly it was the same tired ass trolls who have been trolling, and they kept posting MS's Xbox Live status link. It was a joke.

Now look at the Playstation boards during that time when Playstation was "hacked". Very different.

Only explination I heard was that all those posts on Sony boards were trolls. lmfao.

Meanwhile, I could not even play any PS4 game even though I have my console set to my primary console, but I was on XBL playing normally as always.


Bummer I was playing just fine on my PS4. I don't know what you did wrong.

XBL has been DDoS'd. Along with PSN, Path of Exile, Guild Wars 2, various SCE MMO game servers, battle.net and more

Because XBL isn't held together with laziness and duct tape like PSN is.

^ Who's denying outage? Reading comprehension 101. Try it some time.

The guy said it was out for 2 weeks. It certainly was not. It was out for a day. There were issues for 2 weeks with making new accounts and trying to recover your account over XBL, but it was not down longer than a day.

“Sony, yet another large company, but they aren’t spending the waves of cash they obtain on their customers’ PSN service. End the greed.”

I saw a lot of Ps3 and 4 users on a facebook gaming group complaining of not even being able to play their digital games offline while PSN was down.

I was on hulu on my 360 the entire time they were supposedly attacking live. Not a hiccup.

BTW, I find it pretty funny the ponies go out of their way to say DDoS is not hacking(technically it is, just baby simple stuff...but still fits the overarching definition) yet also go out of their way to call a child pressing spacebar a bunch of times and getting intohis dads account with a glitch "major hax". Never doubt the the hypocritical depravity of a Sony Pony. I've disliked their ilk since the days before Xbox even existed. And they've only gotten worse.
