Xbox server status @ their website says active. On their FB page it shows many people (including myslef) telling them otherwise.

Yeah I think so, I didn't know who they are nor do I use twitter, too old for all that crap, found it through a google search for xbox live status, xbox.com wouldn't load so I picked the next link:)

Yes, it appears XBox Live is down and/or has connection issues. I posted some details here (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?177933-XBox-Live-Potentially-Down-Dec-1-7-PM-PT) in the server status section as well.

If I do get more details, I'll let you know.

Read the comments from Xbox Live to Lizzard Squad half way down the page
https://twitter.com/LizardPatrol/status/539594137117667328

The Lizard Squad have been doing DDOS attacks on gaming servers for several months. Servers for PSN, Destiny and several EA games have been down thanks to this one group.

The Lizard Squad were quiet for a few weeks when Twitter suspended their account. They’ve created a new page and have started annoying gamers once again.

The Lizard Squad taking down Xbox Live was a “Christmas Present” to Microsoft the group said. They threatened this is just preparation for more things to come during the lead up to Christmas.

It will be annoying if PSN and Xbox Live goes down for Christmas during the days people have off from work or school. It looks like these guys don’t care. You better be prepared to play offline video games if these guys are still around…

Since XboX live server is back online I had troubles with starting Defiance game. Everything is working on XboX live since a few minutes, but Defiance game wont start up. Am I to expect it will take some time to fix that issue, maybe just the Defiance servers are not automatically up as XboX live started to run again ? That is what I hope for. (edit) -I see I'm not the only one experiencing that issue.. kind of a relief

Anything I have that is online, Defiance, Netflix, Youtube, is still giving the same "requires connection to XBL" message. It seems they are still in recovery from the DDOS.

lol It would be funny if people countered this by convincing a large portion of the playerbase of x game or service to immediately drop $5 on anything when the service comes back up.

Then have the companies they are attacking thank them for the sales boost.

Ya it's working until I try to play Defiance and it tells me I need to be signed in and I already am. I can play Warface just fine Online. They had their system hacked earlier.

This problem is still ongoing. We do have some players online for both NA and EU XBox right now, but its much much lower than normal.

And, FWIW, just because one online game is up, that doesn't mean all are up. Every game uses different systems within the live infrastructure.

It's just disappointing because I had to play Warface and I left that game because this one is better.

I'm as disappointed as you with this, believe me :)

Glad you like Defiance too.

I can't even launch the game, xbox keeps telling me to check my connection.

Edit. Just got into the game on NA servers.

Apparently Xbox is still having some issues with what had happened on Monday. Some services for games are still a little glitchy
