Kim Dotcom Claims to Have Stopped the PSN and Xbox Live Outages by Lizard Squad

Kim Dotcom, the head of Mega, apparently got Lizard Squad to stop the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live outages by making them an offer they couldn’t refuse.

Dotcom tweeted at the group, saying they could get Pro1 annual Mega vouchers that have 500 gigs worth of  storage if they left PSN and Xbox Live alone. The tactic apparently worked.

Lizard Squad on Friday afternoon announced that the attacks on PSN and Xbox Live “have stopped.”

However, on Friday, it appears that Xbox Live and PSN were intermittently down due to attacks, but according to Dotcom, is now a problem Sony and Microsoft must fix.

Lizard Squad has been targeting Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network for the past several weeks. The first claimed attack took place over the summer.
