Default PSN And Xbox Live Is Down

Both were hit with a DDos attack by some group of kids who think they are hackers. I guess some people are able to log in, but a vast majority cannot. I feel bad for the kids who just received a new gaming console only to find out they cannot register and play anything

What's weird is I started playing halo 2 at halftime, and I've actually found 2 games about 10 seconds after starting searching.

The matchmaking in general? Typically it still takes me about 5 minutes to find a game if I play outside of the halo 2 anniversary mode. Anniversary mode takes like 30 seconds sometimes a few minutes but not that much.

Anything else I'm lucky to find a game. But today! Oh man is it working well!

So their goal was to mess with gamers and not gaming companies? I swear I don't get hackers. Should've gave us all a free game or something beneficial to us. Where it costs microsoft and Sony money. After all you're hackers are you not?

They didnt really hack anything. Both Xbox live and PSN was hit with a ddos attack, all these kids did was run a premade script through a command prompt which caused extremely high traffic to flood the servers, causing them to shut down.
