You may have noticed that Xbox LIVE had an outage at the weekend, causing the service to be down for a long period of time. Well, this morning Microsoft has moved to cure fears that the outage was cause by a hack.
Speaking to Videogamer, a Microsoft rep confirmed the cause of the download, saying that it was due to a networking misconfiguration during routine maintenance", and that it was "in no way related to false claims of hacking the service."
There is currently a lot of debate surrounding online services, specifically Microsoft's rumoured 'always on' next Xbox. It makes you wonder how people would feel if the next console should go down in the same way and all of a sudden people found themselves with a console that wouldn't play games.
