So I get onto my xbox today, and can't sign into xbox live. A google search reveals that apparently some hacker group decided to mess with the servers today. Assholes. Anyways, the game I've been playing recently is offline, so it's not a huge deal. Except that I can't sign into my profile, because when I try to sign into my profile it automatically tries to get on xbox live as well, and when it can't it just doesn't sign me into my profile. So now I can't play my game. wtf. Anyone know how to sign into your profile without xbox live?

Some # birds that go by Lizard Squad shut down all x-box AND playstation servers. I have a feeling there's a lot of pissed off kids out there that just got a One or PS4
Here's a quick story about it
On twitter they're claiming they're going to keep them down until at least New Years... Let's hope that's not the case. Some of us lives hundreds (me) or thousands (my girlfriend) of miles from our family's and don't really have anything to do today, already took the dog for a 2 hour walk.

Have you tried disconnection the ethernet or wifi? Maybe cutting its networking connection will force the box to log-in to the local profile?

Well that worked...except just now I plugged the modem back in, which caused it to log me out of my profile...wtf...there has to be another way...did xbox seriously make it so that if the servers ever go down you can't even play offline? Cuz I don't live by myself, so I can't really just have the internet and phone off for hours...lol

That sucks!

My xb1 seems to be working ok,
but I'm not playing it, the wife is...lol

Sucky timing. Just wait it out.



Once you get everything figured out, you can play offline.
Sounds like a weird log in issue.
I had problems when I first got my system but figured it out.
It is the installing and updating that I hate..lol

There is a way, remove your wifi password from the xbox and it wont connect at all.


Happy Gaming

Good deal. Its been many moons since i was on a console. I wasn't sure if there was an option like that.
Glad you got it sorted.

I was just on Xbox Live playing GTA Online for about thirty minutes too. I signed off about forty-five minutes ago.

Looks like it's down. Here are some links.

Glad we watched The Interview last night. But I'm pissed, since I use YouTube on the Xbox to entertain the little guy when I'm doing stuff around the house.

EDIT TO ADD:

The Lizard Squad Facebook page appears to be disabled. The twitter.com...]Twitter seems to still be active.

Yes, it is definitely frustrating. But I gotta ask. Your star count doesn't seem to make sense. According to it, you have gotten over 600 stars per post? Wut?

No comment.

No idea why/when/how it happened. Could be one post with a whole boatload of stars (That disappeared thread about the JFK/Roswell connection ring any bells?). Heck, I was on ATS infrequently when they implemented the whole stars and flags thing. I'm an old timer here (going on eleven years). So it could be related to that. Could be my stint as a FSME/mod way-back-when. Could be because of my paid position on the site as a government operative.

But, no comment.

When ATS changed over to the new site a glitch caused that to happen to a lot of ATS accounts.

What was a reliable system to show who held popular opinion and contributed with generally good, or supported, responses now has become just another useless bit of info to be disregarded.

Some people say ATS has gone downhill, their failure to rectify this ongoing issue is a very defining case-in-point.

I liked my answer more...

Regardless, it seems to be back up and running. Just watched some Netflix for a little bit.

I imagine...thinking you got millions of stars on a few of your posts is much more satisfying...haha...I'd stick with that...like those posts were AMAZING!

They are just getting you ready for a false flag attack. They know you'll get mad as hell and it'll be easier to recruit you into the military. Do you think it's a coincidence that the best selling game ever is call of duty? Get em while they're young!

My hubby was playing Halo on the XBOX One pretty much all afternoon yesterday. We get kicked off the internet a lot more lately, but of course our ISP sucks, they are booting us daily even if only for a minute or two, its definitely disruptive. I don't really care for Halo I am a C.O.D. kinda gal.
