Xbox Live connectivity issues fixed, services return

Thursday, 20th June 2013 19:50 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Update:Xbox Live services are back up. According to Microsoft “networking changes” made by the team “resulted in a connectivity error for all users in accessing Xbox Live and Xbox.com.” The changes were reversed and all systems are restored.

Original story: Some folks are reporting that Xbox Live is down at present, and Microsoft has confirmed users may experience difficulties with connectivity. It said it is aware of an issue with signing in and connecting to XBL and are “hard at work to get you back online as soon as possible.” You can check the status of the service through here, and you will also be made aware through the link when it is working again.

    Meh, bit of a nonsense thing to say though. That was just gonna be a 24 hour online check, nothing more. When did you lose XBL for more than a hour anyway?

    @1 could be worse. They might release an update that bricks your console.

    For a company that seems to emphasize a bit too much on how stable and powerful their servers are (enabling the “infinite power of the cloud”) this is very embarrassing.

    @6 Or knowingly send to market a billion-dollar console which dies at a staggeringly high rate.

    Seriously, this type of outage happens all the time on all platforms.

    @6 – LMAO

    @6/9 – Lets just put it down to both companies have shortcomings. Even though MS put out a faulty console they fixed them for free. I remember people having problems with getting Sony’s Yellow Light (I think it was) repaired, which if I remember correctly, was the same as RROD, just the Playstation version.

    @20 – If he didn’t like he, he wouldn’t live there :P Must be peaceful being the only resident.

    To be fair, the only red ring for MS now is Don Mattick’s ass after his weekly board meeting with Steve Ballmer.
