Xbox Live social services including friend list and party chat are currently suffering from connectivity issues on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
The service has now resumed operation after several hours of issues.
Says I have 0 friends online. Which happens never. *waits for jokes about having no friends Seriously though, this isn't cool.
Yeah, when I'm first on my leaderboard, it means there's a problem :P
lol... so modest.
This is the 2nd week in a row, if this happens again next week then WTF! Although this was just errors and last week was hackers.
I am ALWAYS out of luck in NOT experiencing these issues. Boy those guys are fast. Maybe next time ;D
Lucky you. I'm sick of live. Mind u I still get titanfall without a subscription.
they seem to have had a fair bit of trouble with this before havent they?
Yup my friends list and friends leader boards have been down since the last update went up on the preview program. Not sure if they are related or not but either way i have created a new ticket and reported the problem to Microsoft via the xbox one report problem feature. Hopefully ms sorts it asap, they are the BOSS when it comes to sorting problems software wise.
What's hilarious is I have never seen Abriael post PS4 gone down articles and I have had more then enough issues with PS Online service. For example Grand Theft Auto I have gotten booted off several times with my friends. Abriael as fast as you are to post articles about Xbox One, fair is fair you should do the same when ps4 goes down.
Wow, what is really going on with Xbox Live these days. I've never seen it have this many problems so often. I hope they can get it together.
Edit: Never mind. Early morning gibberish from my end lol.
It happens when they are about to implement a new system update or maybe they are testing something else
Sadly, It's been happening monthly ever since the Xbox One released.
Yeah, I can't even download games from the marketplace. Just when I decided to finish that partial download I had for the Witcher 2 the month it became free on Games With Gold.
Are streaming apps down?
not mine , friends list and leader board
Mine is down as well. From what I gather this issue seems to be pretty widespread right now. I'm glad I did my downloading last night through smartglass for Goat Simulator and State of Decay pre-download. I'm kind of surprised that I haven't been having any issues with achievements this evening.
I'm online playing Forza horizon 2 with a few friends. Is this information accurate?
Yes. Xbox.com, the official website, is showing that multiple parts of live are still down right now.
Well as I said I'm in a party playing forza horizon so how accurate can it possibly be lol? I would post a picture but I can't. lolllllllllllll at the disagrees I bet you guys just wish it was down.
aussie: just because you can access the services does not mean there is not issues for lots of other people
Get over yourself, people are disagreeing because obviously some people are down and your connection did not reflect the whole world of xbox.. Or maybe they just don't like your arrogance.
@AussieGamer1 Dude the disagrees are because no one said that they are unable to play online etc, its the friends list and friends leader boards on the home screen which is down. Although not sure how you got into a party and are playing online with friends, or are you sure its your friends in the lobby? it could be their drivatars lol Anyhow allot of people are having this problem over the last few days, if you are not HOORAY for you LOL
I'd think that Microsoft's own website is the most aaccurate source out there. http://support.xbox.com/en-...
Yeah and if you read what is down it says managing friends list and seeing what they are doing lmao which doesn't affect anyone to be honest
I would imagine it affects people that want to manage their friends and see what they are doing. I would also imagine it affects people who want to play with their friends, but can't see them as online.
My god, man. You take your personal experience to be the norm, then when people spell out exactly what's going on for you, you shift the argument to "it hardly matters to anybody." I mean... wow.
Why is there always an article about this when it happens? Half the time the issue are resolved before the article gets accepted. Why don't we get one every time Steam is down? I want to see that 12 times a day.
Pizza hut pizza - check Xbox live - nope I guess it's pizza and movie night
Wait a minute you dont bake your own pizzas?! Your a master baker how do you hone your skills?! Im kinding but seriously I hate prepping up a good night for binge gaming only to have some type of snafu.
But can you play online?
How am I supposed to tell my friends on Xbox to get on PS4 if Xbox.com is down? Man...
Lol at the agrees compared to disagrees all the trolling comments are getting in this article. I wonder which fanbase most of the traffic is coming from
I thought his comment was pretty funny, I didnt take it as trolling.
This is happening way too often....
I'm not trying to be a fanboy but this is what Xbox fanboys said about psn. Karma sucks
There's a HUGE difference between when the friends list is down compared to the whole network being down. HUGE difference.
Not to jump in on this but there is also a HUGE difference between a company taking down their network to fix an exploit compared to an unknown anomaly causing issues on it.
@Aussie Could you please explain what this HUGE difference is? From what I've seen, there are people that make big deals about similar problems on PSN...messaging being slow being the most recent example I can think of. Some people use these nuisance issues as reasons to show why it sucks overall. Given that, when it happens on XBL, shouldn't it get the same reaction just to be consistent? Why make this into a console issue at all?
Send game and party invites itll work but no chat
XBL doesn't seem to be that good anymore. Well it never was anything special, just the same as PSN.
Was playing Unity and my FL is gone. Wonder if someone attacked Live again
This is getting really old
seems to be every other week some kind of xbox live problem? I think it must have something to do with azure servers
My xbox friends list is down , and it STILL looks better than my PS4's...
"my ps4" ..... sure sweetheart.. lol
I trying to figure out what the hell you said even means. Why bring PS4 into argument? I starting to feel that some of you fanboys suffer from some kind of mental illness. It's OK to have have personal preference on which system you like. But, people like you have to stir up the pot in every [email protected] article and start this fanboy crap. Does it ever get old????? Does it brighten up your day???? I'm trying to understand the logic but its really hard....Man, your gonna have great day now cuz you made a great snappy fanboy starting comment on N4g....Congrats sir. O_o
This came at the worst possible time. Running thru castle never with my guild and right as we get to the last boss it goes down. That was just completely frustrating.
I have both systems and can honestly say in the past 5 months or more Live has had more troubles then PSN. Now dont get me wrong they has issues but live has little things like having to try and connect a few times or not getting on for a while. It isn't down for long but it is happening more often.
Been on Neverwinter most of the day, no issues whatsoever.
Now it's down again today. It was working fine this morning; now all my friends are mysteriously offline. Is MS trying to update something?
Affected platforms: Xbox One Xbox 360 Affected services: Signing into Xbox Live 4/18/2015 9:23:26 PM CST: Xbox members, are you running into trouble signing in to Live? We are aware of the issue and have our best on it. Thanks for being patient while we work! We will provide you an update as soon as we have more information.
I thought xbone never had any network issues, that's what the xbone fanboys tell me anyway, guess that wasn't true at all.
It sure seems the tables have turned this gen.
