    Similar to previous couple of years, Online Holiday Networking with your Video Gaming Console, might NOT be possible!

    If anyone in your house plans to do some online multiplayer gaming during the holidays, here's a heads-up. Hackers have issued a threat to knock both Xbox Live and Sony's PlayStation Network offline.

    Well as usual, the legit gamers wishing to play will be battling it out with those nasty hackers that wish to make gaming over the holidays an horrible experience for some reason that does nothing but hurt the innocent gamer at home, with the big corporations not caring at all that their networks go down almost like clockwork every year, which is easy to do since they already at the max. limits with all that at-home on holiday gamers trying to enjoy their xmas break with a few relaxing hours playing GTA or CoD or FFIV, etc.
    So here we go again, but be warned if you thinking of doing this yourself using one of those 'Dark Web' marketplaces, the agencies are tracking customers of the point-and-click DDoS services, and last month they arrest 37 people already that bought those services! :)

      I agree with HappyDance. These groups aren't hackers. They are just skids who found scripts online and have big mouths and saying that those platforms have been hacked is very inaccurate. Also NO services went down due to a DDoS.

      this is pointless, new customers and every new game sold needing a day 1 patch all trying to get online xmas day will usually take both psn and xbl down quite happily on their own without needing the help of script kiddies.

      Sony and Microsoft fought off the attacks.

      But valve was not so lucky as steam was down for most of xmas eve and day.
