Update: Xbox Live should be back up for everyone.
“Thanks for the continued reports and feedback,” said the support team “We are seeing reports that folks are able to get back online, and we are happy to report that this should be resolved. Please give signing in another shot and let us know how it looks. Just in case, give your Xbox One consoles a quick power cycle before signing back in.”
Original: If you’re having trouble signing into your Xbox, you’re not alone. Xbox Live appears to be down for everyone right now.
Its Status page indicates that core services are affected and these include “signing into Xbox Live, Browsing the Xbox Games Store, Buying downloadable items, Paying for downloadable items with stored currency, adding additional stored currency, or viewing your balance, Downloading items that you have already purchased.”
We don’t know when it will be back up and running, but Microsoft is aware of the problem. “We are aware that some members may be having problems finding previously-purchased content or purchasing new content,” reads the support website. “We are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible, and we will be sure to provide you with frequent updates.”
So if you’re like me and was wondering why an hour ago you’d keep getting signed out of your account repeatedly, take comfort in knowing it’s not a hardware problem with your Xbox and the issue is being worked on.
Over on Reddit, countless Xbox users across the world are reporting issues.
