Original story below…

I was wondering when this was going to happen, America is waking up and plugging in those shiny new Xbox consoles and Xbox Live is falling over. “We’re aware that users are currently unable to sign into Xbox Live on various platforms,” tweets Xbox Support.

You can check out the status of Xbox Live by heading to the support page here. It seems the issue was spotted at just after 6pm GMT and is being investigated by Microsoft. The status page does say only Xbox One and Windows 10 are affected by a quick check on Twitter shows the Xbox app and those with a Series X are also having issues.

It’s a big night for server issues, Beyond Light has just launched on Destiny 2 and Bungie’s severs have fallen apart.

Is the Xbox Series X worth they outlay? We’d say so, if you prefer the green team over the blue. The console is fast, it’s clearly very powerful and it builds on the Xbox One X. You’ll see a huge jump forward if you’re coming from a base Xbox One or PlayStation 4, but might be feeling there’s a lack of meaningful exclusives on day one.

We said in our Xbox Series X review:

The Xbox Series X is the continuity candidate. It’s built on the foundations of familiar system software and comprehensive backward compatibility that actively enhances everything you want to play on it (within limits) and it’s effectively silent no matter how hard we’ve pushed it. At this time we’re still on the outer threshold of what it can offer for the next gen gaming, but we’ll explore that over the coming days, weeks and months. What’s certain is that you’ll want a high-end TV or monitor to get the very best out of it, and that if you’re coming from a base PS4 or Xbox One in particular, this will be a huge step forward.
