Xbox LIVE is down, but the team is working on it

"If you’ve been trying to sign into Xbox LIVE for the last few hours, your efforts would have been thwarted as Microsoft’s online service for Xbox 360 is currently not operational." (Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE)

Update Xbox LIVE is now back up and fully functional - happy gaming!

It's only partially working for me (I am in the BETA) it lets me sign in but no cloud storage is available and all the live stuff on the dash is a blank, netflix etc is still working but slow to sign in.

Now now, before 360 and Sony fanboys start raging against each others and saying Xbox Live is not down and this article is bullshit, and the other half saying that Xbox Live is down, I have to say something:

Its not bullshit, Xbox Live is down.

You can carry on now, ill get my popcorn.

Edit: I logged in right now, very slowly. Seems inconsitent.

major nelson continually tweets updates and the xbox site shows the status of xbox live at any time along with updates as well. m$ does a good job keeping gamers updated and they usually fix problems promptly.

Not down for me, but since there is a service alert, must be down for someone.

Yeah I was downloading Max Payne 3 and it bugged out on me. Now it works fine.

I'm on it right now getting PS4 commercials on YouTube... which isn't a bad thing... just ironic.

i thought this stuff only happens on psn? guess xbox live isnt so perfect afterall is it?
Animal Mutha 76  +   648d ago
Nothing's perfect and in xbls defence this is very rare. They do sort it quite rapidly to their credit.
Animal Mutha 76  +   648d ago
Yeah it's unusual for live to go down but it did last night in the UK. I couldn't get on at all and wanted to play battlefield mp.

I resorted to playing the free Assassins Creed 2 single player offline for a few easy Gs :)

It does go to show that an always online device is not fool proof. I'm glad next gen systems will not become paper weights if the Internet or provider goes down.

I guess it's a good thing MS did a 180 for the X1 then.
