Xbox Live users in turn tweeted Microsoft about the outage, complaining about not being able to access their account. Microsoft did not respond.

Lizard Squad has previously taken responsibility for DDoS attacks on the Sony PlayStation Network, the game Destiny, and “several EA games” (as yet unnamed). They seem to be pondering the target of their next attack.
