Xbox Live experiences second outage this month, 'Lizard Squad' decrees it #offline

Ready to settle into a long night/day of gaming? Well, if you own an Xbox One or Xbox 360, think again. It looks like the hacking group 'Lizard Squad' has struck once more, decreeing via their official Twitter channel that "Xbox Live #offline."

Although it is unknown how long the outage will last, you can be sure that many are not only missing out on gaming tonight, but also the chance to watch 'The Game Awards' for 2014 that is taking place in Las Vegas. Luckily, Xbox Live isn't the only source to watch the award show. It can also be streamed online via the official website.

This isn't the first time that 'Lizard Squad' has caused an outage for Xbox Live, with the previous outage occurring on December 1st. At the moment, Xbox and Xbox support Twitter accounts have not reported any issues with Xbox Live, hopefully they will be able to resolve this issue quickly.

At the time of writing, the servers are still having intermittent issues. The attack originally occurred sometime last night in the PST timezone, but the issues are still persisting as of 04:00 PST, and if you thought it might be a one off, read the tweet below.

Update 11.10am PDT: Seems the attacks have resumed, with the most affected countries appearing to be in Western Europe at the moment.
