Xbox Live Down: Latest Updates And What?s Really Happening

By on

Xbox Live looks as though its servers are down and might have closed all its services until they can patch things up. Microsoft?s online gaming service is having a rough month and it seems like they?re still nowhere near fixing the issue, according to VentureBeat.

Microsoft is still working on a solution to fix the issue after they received countless of complaints on social media. VentureBeat reported that this is the second week in a row that Xbox Live members have been experiencing online problems such as having trouble in the marketplace, accessing purchased games online, and booting up Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, and Netflix.

Xbox then released a statement on their support site explaining the situation and that they are currently fixing the problem. ?We understand some of you might be having a tough time signing in to Xbox Live. Additionally, we realize that some of you are experiencing issues purchasing new subscriptions or managing existing subscriptions. We want you to know our top engineers are on the case and are working toward a fix. Thanks for your patience in the meantime! We will provide an update as soon as we know more.?

According to Hackread, New World Hackers (NWH) were responsible for the previous Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack which targets web servers and flooding them with traffic. It?s still unclear whether this current issue is a result of a DDoS attack or a technical problem but more and more angry gamers are complaining on social media which is currently causing a huge uproar on Xbox Live and its services.

And to make matters worse, someone recently changed the Wikipedia definition of Xbox Live to ?a piece of s**t that never works.? As of now, the definition hasn?t been changed, but if there?s a good-hearted Xbox user willing to change it, now is probably a good time. It?s not Microsoft?s fault for being susceptible to DDoS attacks, but it?s just a matter of time before Xbox Live returns.
