Why is IGN always going down on Xbox One, even when other Apps are up. Is IGN linked to Xbox core services?

Abriael1119d ago

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.

n4gcom1118d ago

How this app would be helpful for?

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)

rxl2091119d ago

because psn warns you days in advance, xbox live just goes down at random

SoapShoes1119d ago

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!

Stogz1119d ago

Eh, IGN is all over these for PSN and XBL, it's clickbait, really.

"Why is IGN always going down on Xbox One"

Let's keep this forum clean guys.

Kingdomcome2471119d ago

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:::
It's DualShockers!

LMAO, move along folks, nothing to see here.

bleedsoe9mm1119d ago (Edited 1119d ago )

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 .

BISHOP-BRASIL1118d ago (Edited 1118d ago )

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.

USA0071118d ago

@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.

S2Killinit1118d ago

Not sure, but I'm pretty confident there is some sort of a business relationship between them. IGN tends to be pro xbox.

TheXgamerLive1116d ago (Edited 1116d ago )

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.

OmegaShen1119d ago

Yet it shouldn't be down at all, seeing you pay for it.

XiMasterChief1119d ago

Same could be said for PSN, and every other paid service in existence.

Gh05t1119d ago (Edited 1119d ago )

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.

jrshankill1118d ago (Edited 1118d ago )

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".

XanderZane1118d ago

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.

rxl2091119d ago

no, its just finally being reported

Insomnia_841119d ago

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.

LexHazard791119d ago

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.

Alsybub1118d ago (Edited 1118d ago )


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.

lfc_4eva1119d ago

Unlucky for those affected.

I was on 360 only 30 minutes ago with no problems.
I'm in the UK so wonder where the problems are.

falviousuk1119d ago

m in the UK and Live is down completely. Went to watch netflix and wasn't able to, can't sing in at all.

Thankfully I have a PS4, so watching netflix on that instead.

Kryptonite42O1119d ago

I'm in Canada

I can't seem to connect to xbl. Signed into my gamertag just fine, but no netflix or online content of any kind at the moment :(

SilentNegotiator1118d ago XBL means that you can't connect to Netflix? Seriously?

Christopher1118d ago

I know it's a typo, but I was just trying to imagine you "singing" onto Netflix :)

SilentNegotiator1118d ago

♫ Ooooooh Netfliiiiiiix, I want to watch some breaaaaaaaaking baaaaad! ♪

XanderZane1118d ago

That's pretty much what I do. If it's down on PSN, I use XBL. If it's down on XBL, I use PSN. If they are both down at the same time, which is rare, I'll just use my IPad or my Samsumg Smart TV. I have Netflix on everything, include my 3DS and my Samsung Galaxy 2 phone.
