Xbox Live Is Down Right Now [UPDATE: BACK UP AND RUNNING]

Xbox Live ran into some big problems today, but they should now be fixed.


[UPDATE] Xbox Live is back up and running normally, according to the Xbox Live Status page, though as always, your experience may differ depending on where you live and what you're trying to access.

The original story is below.

Xbox Live is facing some big issues right now. The service is facing "Social and Gaming" issues currently, which means that in-game matchmaking, cloud storage, finding friends, Game DVR, leaderboards, avatar editing, and more services are not working normally.

Additionally, while the Xbox Live Status page says Xbox Live Core Services like signing in is working normally, your mileage may vary. At GameSpot Australia, we have been unable to sign into the network for more than 30 minutes now. Looking at Twitter shows that many other people around the world are having issues logging into Xbox Live right now. The issues appear to be affecting Xbox One and Xbox 360.

A number of games are affected by this newest Xbox Live outage, including Rainbow Six Siege, Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, and Super Street Fighter IV.

We'll report back with more details on the Xbox Live issues as they come to light. If you're running into problems right now, let us know what you're facing in the comments below.
