GameZone: "For the second time this month, Xbox LIVE is experiencing problems. This time, it isn't with the "core services," but rather with the social aspect of gaming."
http://img.pandawhale.com/p... Silliness aside, sh!t happens, I was playing BF4 last night at my actual internet cut out for 20 minutes, nothing worked, oh the horror
It was down for an hour late yesterday afternoon though, that sucked... It's working sort of for me, I'm able to play titanfall and use Hulu... I can't see why friends list for some odd reason. Hmm, I probably should be working instead of checking xbox, oh well.
This sucks especially because it's been happening so often...
Yeah man, I'm an X1 owner and I'm telling you it's been down about an hour a week for about 3-4 consecutive weeks. No idea why this is suddenly happening. I have never had issues prior to 3-4 weeks with X1 since launch. It needs to be addressed since we are paying them for their services.
Maybe more people joined the system? I just joined and can't get off of it 😅😅😅
Haven't they moved some of the services to Azure? If so then that would explain it as Azure has had plenty of outages in the last couple of years, sometimes lasting days.
It says 7/10 times that I'm on, something is down with the service. I don't recall it not letting me get online to play mp. That being said it's stupid to have this many problems as often.
Maybe MS can call Kaz for some advice and pointers on how to make your network more stable, KAZ working that Kung-Fu on PSN, Karate chopping XBL down lol.
Not down for everybody it seems. Just signed in and I can see what my 7 friends who are online are doing. Nobody is playing multiplayer though so there could be problems there. Will try joining a game. Edit: joining a BFBC2 game as we speak. What are these problems exactly?
If x box live was down for 10 minutes it will get posted on N4G
No kidding, posted right in-between the Naughty Dog/Last of US(best game/studio ever and PS4 sales figure posts. The N4G community is a joke. Keeps me entertained.
Some of the non gaming related social feature where down.
I've been playing online multiplayer for the past few hours and haven't encountered any issues with any aspects of XBL. None of XBL services is completely down however some users are having issues with some services and it's clearly stated in the Xbox support page that the affected services are "LIMITED" not "DOWN"!
Thank goodness it's limited to only a few because I'm on a winning spree online right now
idk whats been up with live lately. i feel like its gone down more in the past month than the past few years
rough week for xbl. Sort your sh** ms.
Im playing right now. -_-
Yawn zzzz. Small things making big news. will only be affected for a few hours nothing to see here
Lots of social upgrades coming in the next x1 firmware update, probably something to do with that.
strange its not down for me, been on fifa all day
Been playing titanfall for the last 2 hours. No issues here in the uk.
yeah didnt seem to affect the UK
Maybe. But do your Achievements work? I could play forza but leaderboards didn't update and achievements seemed to lose their progress.
Makes it sound like you simply can't get onto LIVE which is definitely not the case. Just stopped playing BF4 online to check the news, if there are problems they aren't network wide. I don't know why these are news anyways, if Microsoft sneezes some backwater blog tries to break into the journalism scene with the "scoop", pathetic. Now lets get back to the top 10 TLoU and PS4 is the best news stories everyone.
And yet people fire shots at PSN when stuff happens to them, both companies services have their ups and downs...their good and bad days. When this stuff happens is when we just hope they are taking the necessary measures to strengthen and fix their infrastructure in a timely manner.
Yes but the key point is, one side thinks their service being better is one of the reasons they bought the console. So when that service screws up as much as the other, it sort of removes one of the reasons they told themselves they should buy the more expensive (until recently), less powerful system.
And I agree with you totally, but people need to face the reality that shit happens not matter how powerful a system is, how many games it has, no matter how much of fan base it has. This is electronics...stuff breaks....this is a network service both parties provide..stuff hiccups and breaks down or gets compromised no matter who side you chose to be on.

If someone were to keep a detailed log of every time they weren't able to access Xbox live over the course of a month, you could probably get accommodated for your lost time that you paid for.
ahhhh well. everyone is here complaining because the journalist are all over microsoft but all forget last generation when sony was bashed for 3 years strait up until mid or the end of 2008 when msg4 was released
Oh but Xbox live is so much better than psn. And they have 300000 servers. But I can't even hold a group chat on the system
I hope anonymous group hack M$ to make them feel the pain Sony felt last gen
LOL Xbox drones as defensive as ever. You get what you pay for right? A service that NEVER goes down. Another example of why XBL is in no way SUPERIOR to PSN, never was, never will be. A shame any sensible gamer who's actually used both realizes this but the Xbots who never used PSN a day in their life don't.
I own both use them both. I still prefer Xbox live. What now? You are making this a lot worse than it is. There are big differences to both networks and I can almost guarantee you are one of those people who DO NOT own an Xbox One and PS4 to even be tagged in on a reputable conversation.
Limited does not mean "down". That's like saying because there is an outage in one neighborhood that the ENTIRE network of a cable company is down. Doom doom DOOM! "Quick lets report on static packet drops in the wires" its Xbox... Yet this isolated cases gets fixed asap and we can still get on XBL. The doomsday prophets need their treats I guess.
this sucks whats weird is this as been happening for awhile i wonder why???
no problems...it seems like anyone can report something that isn't true.. stupid sony fanboys still trying to think psn is better lol
but online superiority, but 300k dedicated servers, but the cloud, but esram, but the kinect, but unicorns lmao, sony plans to make a big investment in psn that never goes down, and this xbox live joke stays down all the time hahaha
The Sony crowd is acting exactly like the crowd they supposedly hated from 2006 I've been reading about.
Azure(office 365)+Cloud=Future. (fail?) O_o
Xbox will be bought by EA before 2017. At least that's what my crystal ball says, don't kill the messenger D:
Love how many comments are hidden on this thread due to trolling. And they are all true. Butt hurt Xbox fans.
More like butthurt multi account user who flags comments as trolling
