Xbox Live down – Microsoft investigating

Update: Xbox Live is now back up and running, however Microsoft have not given a reason for the downtime

Original: Xbox One and Xbox 360 users are currently finding themselves unable to sign into Xbox Live on their consoles.

Microsoft is currently investigating the issue and working to resolve the problem as quickly as possible after the service went down earlier today. Microsoft hasn’t revealed what the potential problem is at the moment and it is unclear what has caused Xbox Live to go down.

Speaking on support.Xbox, Microsoft has said “We’re aware of the issue and working on getting it fixed ASAP! Thanks for your patience while we get things back to normal. We’ll post another update as soon as we have more information.”

There are rumours circulating that the service may have been hacked or suffered a DDOS, but they are only rumours.
