Update: The service is back up.

Original story:

Xbox Live has been extremely unstable these past few days, suffering frequent outages- it is extremely uncharacteristic for the service to have any down time like this. The problem with Xbox Live, in fact, has gotten to be so bad that Microsoft commented on the problem themselves recently.

In spite of all of that, however, Xbox Live appears to be down right now. Again. The official Xbox Live status page indicates that it is down only for Halo 5: Guardians, however, a number of users are reporting a more general outage of the service on Twitter.

If this is true, then this indicates yet another outage for the service in a long line of outages that it has suffered this year- frankly, from one of the leading providers of software and cloud solutions in the world, this sort of performance for their online service is unacceptable, especially when Microsoft wants to make Xbox Live their primary gaming platform. The fact that we are actually paying for Xbox Live only adds insult to injury.

We’ll keep you posted on any further developments on this issue.

    If this is due to DDoS attacks from internet groups again, may I suggest we take preventative measures to make sure it doesn’t happen again? If it needs to addressed at the root of the issue then so be it.

    How come only this site is the only site to see XBL down? Talk about false reporting. I have been gaming in Canada for the past 4 hours on games like rocket league which show the number of users online.
    I have noticed 1 time in the past 2 months when XBL was “down” on Destiny and I couldn’t get in any strike/crucible lobbies due to no players being able to get online. I was the only player in reef and last city on earth which was pretty odd.
    I think this time it’s a few people having ISP problems rather than the New Age “Hackers” DDoSing the servers. Not sure why that group only goes after MS. But what ever.

    psn goes down, xbox live goes down, cell service sucks depending on where you are at, cable goes down…things happen. This asinine article makes statements as if this is unique.
    I may as well not have psn, cell phone, cable, or much of anything…at certain times things are very unreliable

    Xbox is still much more reliable than psn which has the record for being down the most and the longest.

    If you Xgimps are upset about this, take it up with your precious Phil instead of crying about websites reporting on it. 🙂
