Can Xbox Live handle a sudden attack through the game Minecraft? I've read a few reports online people might be doing this through Minecraft, how does that work?

Ddos through a game? Hmmm. Didn't know that was possible.

Well I guess it's possibly if it's happened to Psn. Saying that Xbox live is more secure than Psn. And PSN has been hacked numerous times.

I don't know if this is a joke or not...but if you are serious, re-read the tweet again and grasp the sentence structure.

The hacker group "4J Studios" took down PSN with Minecraft. It's supposed to be ironic. 4J is the developer of the console port, and the massive success of the release is creating a lot of network traffic that has a similar effect on the network as a DDoS.
