The PlayStation Network isn't the only online gaming and multimedia hub having troubles today, as the Xbox Live Service Status website is reporting limited availability of Microsoft's service.
"It's come to our attention that some of our members are unable to sign in to Xbox Live," reads a blurb attached to the notification of limited Xbox Live availability. "You can rest assured knowing that we're doing all that we can to correct this issue right away. Thanks for being patient while we work." Alongside the Xbox Live core services and purchase and content usage systems, the site also reports problems with the PBS and Twitch media apps. While users are reporting playback problems with the Twitch app, the PBS app seems to have simply vanished.
Xbox Live Is In The Clear
Update 2: We reached out to a Microsoft representative about the cause and projected time frame for recovery, and the company had this to say.
Update 3: Xbox Live is now up and running with only a couple of minor issues. The PBS and Twitch apps are experiencing intermittent service problems, but all other functions are up and running.
