Xbox and PlayStation online services have been suffering technical problems, amid claims a hacking group has disabled their services.

Microsoft and Sony - the companies which make the games consoles - have told customers they are aware of issues affecting their online services.

A hacking group called Lizard Squad is claiming to have caused the problems.

Microsoft and Sony have not commented on the claim, but both said they were fixing the issues.

Just before 21:00 GMT, PlayStation's official Twitter account posted: "We are still looking into the PSN (PlayStation Network) issues reported earlier. Thanks again for your continued patience today."

A message on Xbox's website says: "Hi Xbox members. Are you having a rough time signing in to Xbox Live? We're working to get this figured out right away.

"Keep trying to sign in when you get a chance. We're grateful for your patience, and we'll be sure to loop you in on our progress in 30 minutes."

'Worst Christmas ever'
Ros Bruce, from Essex, said her 10-year-old son got an Xbox One for Christmas, and he and a friend had spent weeks planning what games they would play together online.

She said they had been downloading a game since 09:00 GMT - and by 23:40 it was still not ready.

"He has spent most of the day in tears," she said.

"He says it's been his worst Christmas ever.

"I think Xbox should compensate us all."

Those hackers are complete assholes spoiling it for kids at the worst time possible.

That's if it's true, my thoughts were that the network just couldn't cope with the demand but for both to be down its kind of odd especially since both Sony and Microsoft have been through it before so they would of updated their servers to stop it from happening again.

Microsoft and Sony have been working to restore internet platforms for their Xbox and PlayStation gamers' consoles.

Attacks disabled the online services on Christmas Day making it difficult for users to log on.

A message on the Xbox status page on Friday said that live core services were "up and running". Meanwhile, PlayStation said its engineers were continuing to work on "network issues".

A hacking group called Lizard Squad claimed to have caused the problems.

The name is the same used by a group of hackers that has targeted Sony in the past.

There are 48 million subscribers to Microsoft's system for the Xbox and more than double that for the PlayStation system, which has some 110 million.
