Looks Like Xbox Live Is Down For Some People

Kotaku - For the second time in less than a month, Microsoft's online service for the Xbox 360 appears to be experiencing problems affecting a broad swath of users. (Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE)

I'm currently on Live as well. No problems from my end in Texas. And the usual number of my friends are online as well.

Edit: It may have been down prior to the approval of this submission, but the xbox live status is green-lit apart from the crackle app so it should be fully working now for whoever had any problems. - http://support.xbox.com/en-...

I signed in just fine to.

Nice weather we're having in TX I must say.

Well, I'm having no problems but really, Microsoft? Is this what people pay 50 euros a month for? The least I expect is a stable connection.

*EDIT*
Sorry, I meant to say 50 euros a year.

Tell me one paid service that never experiences any hitches whatsoever.
I'll wait.
I was under the impression that the media didn't report xbox live downtimes. Well at least thats what you hear on n4g everytime PSN is down, that the media is biased and makes a big deal bout every PSN outage only.

"Tell me one paid service that never experiences any hitches whatsoever." Was not my point. I still expect a good stability of the service if I'm paying for one.

Anyways, not a big deal for me as this doesn't affect me but thought I'd just share what I think about it.

Yeah, because we live in a perfect world where nothing ever goes wrong with servers, electricity, software, and employees. And to think, all those cell phone carriers that experience service outages occasionally (all of them) are charging people 60 - 100+ dollars a month.

Dude, nothing comes without some hitches. Things go wrong due to complex tech in a potentially unstable environment where numerous external factors are in play. If we lived in world where everything worked perfectly and experienced no technical glitches or set-backs, oh my what a world that would be.

This Live outage lasted for a mere 3-10 minutes according to some people over on the forums and kotaku posts. Are you telling me that waiting such a short amount of time is so grueling?

Wow a lot of Kotaku articles being approved on n4G at the moment.
Why the change of heart for this website?
Anon1974  +   1057d ago
When have Kotaku articles not been approved on n4g?
Ben_Grimm  +   1057d ago
A lot of posters on here were calling for a ban of Kotaku for some reason.

But so far we have had at least three submitted today.

this comment is pathetic LOL , people dont have more interesting things to do?
CernaML  +   1057d ago
Seriously. Ben_Grimm's obsession on trying really hard to prove that this site is some Sony fanboy haven is really pathetic.
TheColbertinator  +   1057d ago
Its working fine for me.Then again I haven't used it for months so...
Cam977  +   1057d ago
Stop verifying articles like this please, it's irritating! 'Oh no, I can't play online due to some error, better get an article out' - NO.
jaixvx  +   1057d ago
Someone stole my xbl account..again. And now live is down. Awesome!
MasterD919  +   1057d ago
I got the warning that I couldn't connect to Live while playing BL2...and then I signed in again and it worked fine.

By the time people catch wind of this "issue" it will have been resolved most likely.
