Random Denial of the Week

By Coxxorz - Posted on 02 December 2014

So after initially not being able to log into Xbox Live, and then being able to log into Live but not play anything due to the ongoing DDOS attack, I thought it might be informative to check Microsoft's official service status page to see exactly what's affected.

Not so much:

Really Microsoft?

With potentially millions of people affected by this attack, the best you can offer is "Nope, everything's up and running, nothing to see here"? This kind of coverup/damage control puts even the WHite House to shame.

What would it take for you to admit there is something wrong? Maybe the San Andreas Fault swallowing all of Redmond, causing a tsunami to submerge the western seaboard? I'm sure even then they would downplay the issue, saying something like "minor local connection issues in some areas."

But seriously, what's the point of having a network status page that doesn't accurately display the network status?

There's irony, and then there's incompetence.

That's because Dragon Age isn't an "always online" game. Can't believe I'm saying this, but good job EA!

STILL considering selling the Xbone and moving to PS4. It's a one time hit and from what I see, a much better experience.

Seanmcr has somehow remained online throughout all of this, playing Dragon's Age Origins on his protected little corner of the internet.

I was on yesterday playing Far Cry 4 with no issues. Must have been a 360 thing.
