Xbox Live is currently being affected by an outage, making logins impossible for many users across both Xbox One and Xbox 360, and affecting the marketplace as well.
Update: the issue has now been solved, and it's possible to log in again.
Why is IGN always going down on Xbox One, even when other Apps are up. Is IGN linked to Xbox core services?
I have no idea. Never used that app to be honest.
Seriously mine is always working when I see these reports. I think making news stories about very temporary online issues for some random users is fruitless. That happens all the time on any large network but mostly Live is always up and running for the vast majority of users. I actually don't remember the last time I or any of my friends said they couldn't log in.
How this app would be helpful for?
@ 4show. Its abriael, not only does he get hits for his blog site, he also stands a chance of winning the prize for most degrees a month on there. Pure click bait
Man, no time was wasted making this article, it literally JUST went down... it's weird how XBL outages always come instantly from one site, but other service outages usually don't. I gotta say though, ever since GwG xbox live has been getting worse and worse. Much preferred paying for a stable consistent network. The party chat is just terrible all the time. @rxl what? why would it go down if Sony is aware ahead of time? Also, I said "other services" not just PSN. (ie. psn, steam, nintendo online, etc)
because psn warns you days in advance, xbox live just goes down at random
Oh idk maybe for the same reason people bash PSN but fail to acknowledge Live has problems too? Maybe not has much but still enough to be annoying as heck!
Eh, IGN is all over these for PSN and XBL, it's clickbait, really.
Well, it's Dualshockers... What did you expect?
"Why is IGN always going down on Xbox One" Let's keep this forum clean guys.
Lol. Fair enough.
I thought the same thing lol. I didn't know that the One had an IGN app.
You know everytime I see something like this, I say XBOX On & I'm signed in... Maybe someone's pranking this site... Oh!!! Wait::: LMMFAO! It's DualShockers! LMAO, move along folks, nothing to see here.
MS reports its outages on their webpage , sony doesn't have something similar (to my knowledge) , sony takes to twitter when people are complaining about outages , ign's job to report substaniated sources of video game news .
Sony does the same, they have a "PSN Status" header on their maitenance page, so if you went looking for a problem, you get to now if it's your end or if PSN is offline for some reason. Anyway, this outage thing is completelly out of hand. I mean, for stuff like holiday outages it's ok, it have to be reported, but they don't have to make an article for it each and any time someone tries to go online and for some reason can't. PSN, XBL, Steam, etc... Are all online services, subject to maintenance that may compromise access, as users should be fully aware of by now (it's the contracts we all sign afterall). This is not news worthy. EDIT: Grammar and ortography.
@Bishop_Brazil but it was a pretty big outage. Everyone who was on at the time was automatically signed out, and we couldn't sign in for almost 2 hours. I was in the middle of a destiny raid. Xbox Ones on line services really should be stabilized, especially with the friends list going down at least once a week, and all the bugs in the UI causing apps to crash and us to hard reset the console. I want it to get fixed, and making it publicly noticed hopefully makes it more of a priority for MS
The IGN app is complete garbage, even on PS4. In fact it seems anything IGN is complete garbage anymore.
@Eonjay Not sure, but I'm pretty confident there is some sort of a business relationship between them. IGN tends to be pro xbox.
This lasted all of about 30 min, yet somehow warranted a news story on N4G??? Sonyyyyy stop it:)
I tried to play Titanfall earlier .. "Purchases and Content usage" are experiencing issues. The beauty of XBL is that, it'll be back up and running in no time.
Yet it shouldn't be down at all, seeing you pay for it.
Same could be said for PSN, and every other paid service in existence.
that is like getting mad that your cable and internet went offline because someone hit the pole and took down service. I paid for it why isn't this working! /s When they refuse to update me and let me know what they are doing to correct the problem or take a longer time than is reasonable for the problem, then I will be upset.
It is annoying, but if you care to read the T&C's, Microsoft don't guarantee 100% services. Same with PSN. Yet we all still buy it and bitch about it online. This really should not be news worthy. A service goes down and it's the hottest topic on N4G. Really?! For the record, I had no issues signing in last night and was able to play online fine. The same as the last 2 "outages".
It seems ever since the PS4 and XB1 has been added to Sony and Microsoft online network, they both have been having issues with their networks. With PSN and the PS3 it wasn't a big deal because it was FREE at the time. Now with the PS4 you have to pay, and PSN has been going down consistently since the PS4 launch, which isn't a good thing. Same could be said for the XBL service as with XBox One added, XBL has gone down a lot more since the system launched. With just the Xbox 360, it almost never went down. Now we are seeing outages for both at least once or more a month. Not good.
Damn this has been happening a lot recently.
no, its just finally being reported
Again, this has been going on ever since the Xbox One released but it is only until now that people is paying attention to it. Everyone kept riding the "Xbox Live is the most stable network" bs.
Thats because Xbox Live was the most stable of the two(psn). But you speak the truth, ever since Xbox One released there has been more issues on Xbox Live than I can remember. And ive had it since it was created.
Of the two, it is.
@BakPAin I agree. I've had it since the beginning and I can't remember a time when it was down this often. PSN was always worse but I never used to feel it appropriate to moan about a free service. Now that I pay for it I get as annoyed as when LIVE is down. No service will be up all of the time but as long as you can rely on it to be stable around 90% of the time I'd say that's acceptable. At the moment, neither are. Generally, you can get online with both but there always seems to be some kind of issue. On LIVE there seems to regularly be issues with party chat, which really bugs me. I know that they get it fixed in a timely fashion but, with my gaming time being limited these days (pressures of a career and family), it's incredibly frustrating to have problems getting in to a game with friends, when I only have a couple of hours a week to play.
