    Seems like XBL is down every other day. Especially according to the Xperts in the Technical Support Forums. I get the feeling MS needs to beef up their server infrastructure as XBL has been unstable since the release of XB1 or Project Cars at the very least.

    Windows 10 was released. Probably contributed to the problem.

    It was either a self inflicted DDoS or a DDoS by a group that wanted it to go down, or their servers was screwing up.

    You can limit a DDoS effectiveness but can outright stop one.

    A DDoS isnt like a Hack where tighter security can stop a hack, tighter security wont do anything to stop a DDoS.

    Adding more server infrastructure will also limit a DDoS but again will not prevent one from happening, all a group needs to do is throw more bandwidth at it.
