In before someone discounts claims that this is not happening because it's not happening to them!

Facts are both services can stand for improvements

gameseveryday1414d ago

You mean PSN? I don't think anyone should discuss about PSN here at all. This news is about Xbox Live not PSN, so I am not sure why anyone should bring up Sony's platform in this thread.

Believe me it'll happen! It always does. The fact that you mentioned them by name, will probably be the only reason someone doesn't come in to make the comparison.

But I'll still agree with you. While totally supporting what IGiveHugs2NakedWomen is saying! Simply because so many believe Microsofts services are untouchable, which couldn't be any farther from the truth.

Seems like everyday now, not trolling at all...its just surprising how much its been having problems consistently this year.

Protip: please, please lets not bring psn into this...we know psn has had its problems and likly will go down sooner or later ...its just xbl has been praised for its service....people went as far as saying its why xbl is better than psn....truth is both services have their problems. Both companies need to work on their service.

i wish sony fans would take that advice and approach with all xbox/microsoft news. but we both know that will never happen, so we can't be surprised to see xbox/microsoft fans do the same thing.

"Seems like everyday now, not trolling at all...its just surprising how much its been having problems consistently this year."

Xbox Live has just as many problems as their main competition. I stated this about 2 weeks ago and I got the typical disagrees and negative comments when I said that Xbox live has "LIMITED" status at least once a week. It's only now it seems like more people are paying attention.

No service that is connected to the internet is immune against network and connectivity issues. It's just a reality of the information age and no amount of disagrees is going to change that fact.


Nothing is being blown out of proportion.

Xbox One

Affected services: Signing into Xbox Live

And I guarantee you that next week, Xbox Live will have some service or services in "LIMITED" status. Limited is just a nice way of saying it ain't working the way it's supposed to.

Been playing all day but the friends list was messed up for a while. Fine now.

Lol at the usual suspects on here. I've been on for hours and so have my mates. The friends list was bugging out that's all.

Gotta love the same fanboys regurgitating the same nonsense that so many people think live is untouchable. I hear more Sony fanboys claiming this than Xbox fanboys stating it. Way more lol. Ah you guys...

Why are you lot on here anyway? It's blatantly obvious you don't have an Xbox One in the first place.

Kingthrash3601414d ago (Edited 1414d ago )

So then why are you here? ^^^^^
...smh troll logic
I mean your xbox is working fine...why aren't you playing? just sayin. And since when do you have to have a xbox in order to read/comment on a xbox article?
Gamers are gamers ...any gaming news is news to gamers. Smh.
This is what kind of comment happens when fanboys criticize fanboys. I dont own a x1, I will one day so it would be only right if I read about the Xbox1 no? How else would i know the good and bad of the product. Hell if many non owners didn't read xbox articles we'd be reading an article about how no one can play on or offline because drm + down service = no one plays.

Septic1414d ago

What do you mean why am I here? Just because my Xbox Live is working doesn't mean I have to play on my Xbox constantly and am prevented from commenting on here? What kind moronic logic is that?

And yeah of course you don't have a Xbox one. That much was obvious. I was asking why diehard Sony fanboys (you know them very well right) need to come up here to stir nonsense.

Here's an idea...You don't have an Xbox One, so take it from someone who has all 3 console, it doesn't happen every day, it was affected in a limited fashion, not the way people are making it out to be here.

Thats what I was stressing. Filtering out the BS and fake concern trolling, like yours.

Why am I on here if Xbox Live is working lol. Brilliant logic. Psn is working fine, why are you here? Gtfo

SonyOnly41414d ago (Edited 1414d ago )

Because they need to scapegoat off course everytime Xbox Live goes down they will bring up PSNs 2011 hack trust me I know their excuse to well also don't forget the classic "No its not Ive been playing all day with no problems".

rbluetank1414d ago

great point! enough said!

rainslacker1414d ago

While I agree with you, you certainly have been around long enough and been in these kinds of threads to know it will happen, and for what reason.

Well what do you want people to say?

"Yes it's totally down... regardless of the fact that I'm playing right at this moment, but yeah it's SO down."

SilentNegotiator1414d ago (Edited 1414d ago )

Because that article says "down" and not "limited", right?

SOME people are experiencing difficulties. People can say, "I'm in (City/State/etc) and not having any difficulties" or "I'm in (City/State/etc) and having difficulties". That would be more constructive than what some people are posting.

I wonder how certain areas get affected and others don't. I havent had a problem all morning but I know there are those out there who seem to be running into issues.What i don't understand is how all is well adn this $h*t just suddenly stops working

SilentNegotiator1414d ago

Networking is a super complicated field. A million things can go wrong when you have a million computers connected to each other both virtually and/or physically.

DDoS attacks probably happen constantly (in varying levels from completely negligible to problematic), components in servers wear out, some software issues probably arise sometimes....

BallsEye1414d ago

AH you just couldn't wait to jump in and downplay live. Btw everything works fine for me, yea.

IGiveHugs2NakedWomen1414d ago (Edited 1414d ago )

Actually both Xbox 360 and Xbox One are experiencing sign-in issues...

Xbox One has been down since 3am this morning EST..

So much for that aura of invincibility...


aviator1891414d ago (Edited 1414d ago )

Well, it certainly isn't happening to me.
I'm on right now on titanfall and have been on since 7. 14 of my friends are on as well, so it seems like an isolated issue, I guess.
My gt is Slain Valhallan if you want to confirm.

maniacmayhem1414d ago

Are we really suppose to take your word on that? Xbox has been working fine for me and my online friends all last night and today.

Maybe you should stick to your "Media hates The Order" articles.


Septic1414d ago

It hasn't been down. Fanboys need to reel themselves in. Some services have been buggy like friends list.

Again, another one claiming invincibility. Where do Sony fanboys get this invincibility point from??

MasterCornholio1414d ago (Edited 1414d ago )

Probably from some fanatics claiming that Azure is invincible.

But I never pay attention to those people.

Anyways it isn't down there's just some sign in issues with it. It says so on the support page.

WilDRangeRfc1414d ago

Your in every negative Xbox article daily fueling the fanboy wars,Naked do you actually play video games I really am starting to wonder buddy???

I had asked the other day why IGN always goes down and now I have my answer:

" You must be signed in with your Microsoft account and provide a 10-digit US phone number."

So it doesn't mean IGN and Plex are "down"... it only means that you have to be signed in with your Xbox Live account to use those apps.

rainslacker1414d ago

MS has gotten completely ridiculous with their security policies for their live services. I'm locked out of a long standing hotmail account because I couldn't provide online verification despite calling them on the phone, and providing ample evidence of who I am, all because they kept making me change my password so I forgot what it was after the 3rd or 4th time in a month and got locked out. I wasn't willing to give them my phone number to get texts from them, and I never bothered to fill out my personal info on it because I didn't feel it was their business.

XiMasterChief1414d ago

No. Even if Live goes does, it comes back up pretty quickly.

DigitalRaptor1413d ago (Edited 1413d ago )

PSN doesn't often go down without any prior warning though.

XBL does. Many, many, many times:

When PSN goes down for maintenance, Sony warns you in advance and mentions that if you are logged in before it goes down, you can still play online.

Fireseed1414d ago (Edited 1414d ago )

Funny cause im streaming KI right now...

cutthroatslim1414d ago

its funny that others r having problems while u are not , oh ok...

n4rc1414d ago

What's funny is the only ones claiming its down are Sony fanboys..

Quite a few people including myself are online this very moment.. While people we know don't own a Xbox are talking about its downtime..

cutthroatslim1414d ago (Edited 1414d ago )

O, ic.. I thought the official Xbox support site was making this claim along with Sony 'fanboys' , no?

"I was asking why diehard Sony fanboys (you know them very well right) need to come up here to stir nonsense."

Where to even begin w this,.. An Xbox guy even with the nerve to ask this question as if Bloodborne & The Order articles haven't been getting completely and utterly derailed/destroyed for two or more weeks straight, especially the Order! Its quite ridiculous, so pls save the 'why stir nonsense' question BC this in fact isn't nonsense, but actual happenings, when, on the other hand, what u guys do in the aforementioned threads is exactly that (nonsense), and biased, and baseless, and a number of other unsavory descriptives. So basically I guess I'm saying gtfoh with that ;)
