February 1 Update: – Some Xbox Live players have been experiencing problems again. More information on the ongoing issues can be found below.

In a recent trend of video game services going down, Xbox One users are currently experiencing some issues, with many unable to even boot up their consoles.

Just a day after Fortnite’s servers experienced widespread outages after the release of the newest v7.30 patch, Xbox One started having some issues of its own.

On January 30, Microsoft issued a statement on Twitter saying that they were looking into the widespread issues that had been plaguing users.

It was unclear at the time what was causing these issues, but a quick look on Twitter showed that the problems were affecting a large number of players.


While some were able to log in, others were unable to do much of anything at all, including starting up their consoles altogether.

According to the Xbox Live Status, most services such as TV, Music, Video, and games themselves are up and running.

The ‘Xbox Live Core Services’ is currently listed at ‘limited,’ which has surely contributed to the massive outage.

The latest update on the Xbox Live website states that “engineers and developers are actively continuing to work to resolve the issue causing some members to have problems signing in to Xbox Live.”

UPDATE (11:00am PST)

It appears as though the problems have since intensified, as the Xbox Live Status page itself has now gone down completely.


Things aren’t looking too good in the land of Xbox.

UPDATE (11:28am PST)

Microsoft has posted another update, saying the issues have been identified and are currently being specifically addressed. This should mean that things should be back up and running fairly soon.

UPDATE (12:25pm PST)

At long last, Microsoft have resolved the issues facing Xbox Live and user should now be able to log in without any issues.

UPDATE February 1 (08:00am PST)

Unfortunately, the issues with Xbox Live appear to have flared up once again, with thousands of users around the world reporting issues with playing downloaded games or even signing in.


We’ll keep you updated with the latest information as we learn more.

UPDATE February 1 (08:15am PST)

Microsoft have acknowledged the login problems via the Xbox Support Twitter account: “If you’re running into errors attempting to sign in or access previously purchased content, our teams are aware and working to identify the cause. We’ll update here when we have more to provide.”

UPDATE February 1 (10:16am PST)

Microsoft is making leeway into resolving the issues with their systems, as the sign in issues “should now be resolved.” However Xbox Support is still finding problems with the purchases over Xbox Live and are looking into a fix.


UPDATE February 1 (11:45am PST)

All systems should be operational as Microsoft gave players an update about the issues regarding their purchases. The company says the issues revolving around accessing previously bought content throught Xbox Live or problems with making new purchases have been resolved.
