More Xbox Live Issues Rear Their Heads

Xbox 360 goes dark
While the connectivity issues Microsoft's been having lately seem to have been solved for Xbox One users (knock on wood), the problems only seem to be growing for the Xbox 360. Today, reports of Xbox 360 gamers not even being able to boot up their games and applications are streaming in. Instead of their games loading, all they get is a blank, black screen — something some of the Pure Xbox members have been experiencing first hand.
These serious connectivity issues seem to have first appeared after an update from early July and have been a roller-coaster ride to follow. It's been affecting not only gaming experiences but also applications such as Netflix and Twitch. The problems are becoming somewhat of a headache for gamers while, most likely, growing into a lingering migraine for Microsoft. The latter is calling for patience and understanding from their fans and users:
"Hang in there, Xbox members, we're on it! Thanks for your patience while we work to resolve this issue. We'll update you again as soon as we have more information."
If a new update is needed, this might take time. Fingers crossed Microsoft is closer to a solution than they're letting on.
