Xbox Live the latest casualty in online security?

Online gaming options are slim at the moment

Having trouble logging onto Xbox Live? Yeah, so are we. As previously reported, Microsoft have issued a statement regarding a phishing scam that may affect users of Modern Warfare 2. However, the Xbox Live service is currently displaying it’s own obscure status code and a message declaring that some components are completely unavailable.

Have Sony sympathisers attacked Microsoft’s servers in response to the laters cheeky invitation to frustrated PS3 gamers?! It is not this journalist’s place to comment on wild conspiracy theories, no matter how attractive. It could be nothing but routine maintenance, or even an attempt to make 100% sure that what happened to their biggest online gaming rival does not happen to them. Or it could be something more sinister.

We’ll keep you abreast of the situation as it develops.
