Xbox Live Is Having Some Issues Again

After last week’s widespread Xbox Live outage, the network is experiencing issues again today. The Xbox Live Service Status page shows that a number of services are running into problems right now, including Purchase and Content Usage, TV, Music, and Video, and Social and Gaming. Both Xbox One and Xbox 360 are affected.

Things like viewing achievements; browsing, purchasing, and viewing video content; and buying games, redeeming codes, and downloading purchases are all affected.

Core services like signing into Xbox Live and matchmaking are still up and running normally, so that’s good news. Last week’s outage prevented many players from signing in at all, which is obviously a big deal.

The dinosaur survival game Ark: Survival Evolved is one of the affected titles. The developer said players are reporting that some are having problems launching the game or, if they can, seeing any available servers.

As always, your mileage may vary with all service interruption. The good news is Microsoft is aware of the problems and is actively working on a fix. So keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.
