Xbox Live issued with service alert

Xbox Live is currently suffering from a number of issues.

According to the status alert, the following services are affected on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One:

  • Accessing all game features
  • Capturing game videos
  • Joining other Xbox Live members in online games
  • Managing friends lists and tracking what friends are doing
  • Posting game performance or viewing the performance of other Xbox Live members

Furthermore, a separate status alert posted at 8:45am GMT reads: “So you’re unable to post stats to leaderboards on your Xbox One Console, right? Well, rest assured that we are investigating the issue right now.

“Additionally, if your Xbox 360 Console is getting stuck on a black screen when trying to launch games or apps, hang in there! We are working toward a fix for this too. Thanks for your patience during this time. We’ll provide an update for you as soon as we can.”

Xbox Live Core Services, Purchase and Content Usage and TV, Music and Video are all “up and running”. The service is expected to return to its normal state shortly.
