Well yeah ddos isnt technically haking, but obviously Xbox live is immune to ddos too. So glad I chose Xbox.


I remember when LIVE was down for nearly 2 weeks during the Christmas holidays in 2008. No network is immune to this.


Do you have a link to this. I don't remember live being down for more than a few hours ever


Nope. I just look it up. For 13 days after Christmas in 08 many users were unable to connect for various amounts of time because so many people got a 360 for Christmas. It was never down


My god man, it was down.

It wasn't working 100%, majority of users couldn't play or connect. And yes this was due to alot of new users connecting online, now you do know what a DDoS attack is yes? MS has no control over this, noone does.
Only reason psn is up now is because there are no games to play on it ~ kcypher2000

The Xbone already got hacked by a 5 year old back in April.


He discovered a glitch during the log in, he didn't "hack" anything.

Even employee accounts were affected. Every time it was pointed out they blamed the user.

um... lol. Dude. Except for the first day, I was playing each and every single day during that time and many others were too. You really shouldn't talk about events that you have no knowledge of.
