Some Xbox users may notice that Xbox Live is down for them, and they aren’t the only ones. Apparently a number of other users have also been hit with the rather unpleasant realization that the service will be down for the foreseeable future, though hopefully Microsoft is already working on getting it running again.
The outage will likely affect various facets of Xbox Live such as online play, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and more. if you were hoping to play a nice game of Halo, Call of Duty, or Battlefield, you might have to content yourself with the single player or something similar to that.
Fortunately, Microsoft has said that the outage appears to be limited, that is, only a small number of people are experiencing it. If you’re not one of those people, you should be able to do whatever you want. If you’re one of the users that has had their Xbox Live service go down you’ll have to wait until Microsoft fixes it.
Thankfully this is the first time in a while that Xbox Live has been down. Back in the first three months of this year it was much worse, with the service going down multiple times, some because of DDOS attacks, some for other reasons.
Either way it hopefully won’t be too long before Microsoft addresses the problem, so just be patient and you’ll likely be able to play soon.
