Yes, Xbox Live is down.

Update: Xbox Live is once again up following yesterday’s outage, in what head of Xbox Phil Spencer said was the result of an increase in usage.

“usage is up on almost everything,” said Spencer over Twitter. “Thanks go out to all the Ops/IT teams at all the companies that are working hard to keep everything running smoothly with all going on around them.”

Original Story: Xbox Live has been experiencing issues since roughly 5pm ET today, with many homebound gamers taking to Twitter to air their grievances.

Microsoft is currently investigating the situation, tweeting from its official Xbox support account: “We understand some users may be experiencing errors with sign in or matching making on Xbox Live, and are currently investigating.”
