Xbox Live Down, Xbox.Com Out Of Action

Less than 24 hours after Microsoft reverted on their DRM policies for Xbox One, the platform holder’s Xbox Live service has unceremoniously gone down. Users were instantly kicked from Live, and the website is unresponsive, suggesting a fairly wide spread issue.


Xbox Support have said they “are looking into this,” with regards to Xbox Live suddenly crashing, adding they “have run into an issue with the Xbox Live service, and are currently investigating” promising “status updates” in the future.

At the time of writing all will return is a basic error message.

Update: it’s all back and working 100%.



  1. A pissed off hacker DDOS-ing, who missed the news that Xbone DRM is a thing of the past???

    • It’s not really a thing of the past thou, is it?

      Microsoft have shown their contempt for gamers, took for for clueless idiots that let anything go.

  2. Good job this didn’t happen with the Xone if they didn’t 180. Would of been worse than the Apocalps3.
