Xbox Live Sign-In Problems Are "Not a Titanfall Issue"

Xbox Live is struggling with service issues but Microsoft insist it's not being caused by Titanfall.

The story is too old to be commented.

Seems a little disingenuous. If Titanfall is causing extra traffic (people downloading it, trying to sign in, people trying to get the system update), wouldn't that make sense. At least they are acknowledging that issue and are going to be give an update very soon.

It's not because of Titanfall because there are still many people playing it. It's just a sign-in issue. It doesn't have to do with the cloud. It doesn't have to do with Titanfall.

We've had these sign-in issues before and they get fixed ASAP. 1hour or less.

In Australia we have had this sign in issue for a long time and has not had any resolution, this being due to no local or Asian sign in servers available. This is probably a separate issue altogether but it just goes to show how unstable to XB1 live is compared to the rock solid Xbox360 live.

My local JB HiFi has had lots of returns from people not able to access the friend bar or sign into live for several days at a time, they have even warned people about this when they buy them.

So basically the MS guys are saying it's not that Titanfall is killing our servers they just kinda suck as is...

XB1 Azure servers were having issues earlier with TF/Forza 5 since those are the only games currently using it on the XB1 but those were resolved quickly.

"Hi Xbox members, are you running into issues matchmaking in Titanfall or Forza 5?" reads the update. "We'll take it from here. Our team is currently working to get to the bottom of this. We appreciate your patience while we investigate. We'll update you again in 30 minutes."

XBL live servers are the ones with the sign in issues. So yh it's not a TF issue anymore.

Is there any chance of it being due to malicious attacks?

@MightyNoX

I highly doubt it. Just seems like a similar issue to what PS4 went through at Christmas. Mass influx of new users trying to sign in at the same time.

Volkama786d ago

No complaints from the PC side so you can assume the titanfall hosted is ok, as it's the same platform. Login server issues, it'd be nice to say it's all the extra consoles sold but I think they've had these kinds of outages a few times already.

Titanfall isn't even out in the UK, but I couldn't launch xbox fitness this eve.

Yeah I'm definitely having issues with Xbox Live right now, I haven't been able to sign on for about 30 minutes. I don't care about the reason as much as I just want the issue resolved so I can play Titanfall. I didn't go to the midnight release at gamestop for nothing lol.

I'm sure it's not affecting everyone obviously but it sucks if you're one of the people it is causing trouble for.

And sadly I'm getting disagrees already for stating something that is actually happening to me, crazy lol

Sarxblade786d ago

That really sucks. :(. Sorry to hear your having this issue hopefully they do fix it soon for you guys. I was just playing at 12p till 4:30p had to stop to go too work at 5p (almost wanted to call off lmao) had no issues with the game or any sign in issues.

Ctiboi2010786d ago

Yeah thanks man. I went to the midnight release party at Gamestop, went to work and was all hyped to play some Titanfall. I made it through the tutorial but as soon as I tried to play a multiplayer game with my buddy, Xbox Live gave me a messages telling me to try again in a few minutes. Hope you're enjoying the game though, hopefully things get settled soon so I can have just as much fun.

I read your comment and checked to see if I would have issues. Got on Titanfall no issues. For xb1. Are you on one or 360?

rdgneoz3786d ago

Titanfall isn't out for 360 yet...

Skate-AK786d ago

Has to be Xbone. Titanfall isn't out for 360 yet.

BX81786d ago

Oh yeah damn good point. I forgot two week dif. I had some sign in issues at 2am but not xbl. That sux though. I hope it stands up to the 360 release as well.

kewlkat007786d ago

I agree .

I can't log in as well. I knew something would happen after everybody came home from work today.

New consoles on the system getting first day updates.
New game downloads
New accounts possibly
and Titanfall

Seriously, the news submission algorithm at n4g is totally broken now. You guys should just shut it down and burn the servers. Its too far gone to ever work again...

UsUcK786d ago

Same here. I'm sure it's to do with people dl Titanfall etc.

jb1276786d ago

Having stumbled through many a MMO Opening Day - if it's popular and people are all trying to connect at once to a "beta" tested .. but not "battle" tested server(s).. you're gonna have a bad time... at least for a couple days while they constantly have the servers going down for "maintenance"

welcome to Day 1 :D

RedDragan786d ago

Battle tested servers? Lol... Are you 12?

I suppose you call your bedroom a command centre!
