Update [Sun 8th May, 2022 11:55 BST]: According to Xbox's official support account on social media, players should no longer be encountering these issues:
Original story [Sun 8th May, 2022 02:30 BST]: As you might have heard, the Xbox Network has been experiencing all sorts of issues this weekend. There have been outages to Xbox Live, players have been unable to access the Cloud, and even launching, purchasing and signing into games has been a problem.
While these issues were thought to be resolved, it seems some have now resurfaced. Microsoft and the Xbox Support social channel has also shared some updates. If you are encountering any problems yourself you can try rebooting your Xbox console.
Have you encountered any of these problems yourself? Leave a comment down below.
Yeah it's been rough the last two days. Got in this morning but I have one more challenge left in Halo and I'll be disappointed if I can't get it before it resets. On the other hand it was a beautiful day for a hike.
People have been saying they can't play digital games they've purchased even though they have the console set as their home console & they're signed on the account they bought the game on , not a good look for xbox
Yeah I can’t play lego Star Wars or game pass games on Xbox series x makes no sense. Guess I’m just gonna try getting 100% on Kirby FL until it’s fixed I guess.
I’ve been unable to play Game Pass and digital games since Friday afternoon…
Yeah, not being able to play last night was a huge bummer. It was one of the only nights I had to myself in a long time, couldn’t even go outside for a night walk or anything cause it was pouring rain. Would have loved it if I could have just played some Forza, Halo, CoD, or something but I couldn't launch anything.
All Xbox 360 services aren't working for me. Called on Tuesday and they said 360 has been having issues for a while and are working on it. Now the Series X is having issues like others have been saying
It’s weird. I haven’t had any issues yesterday or today. Been playing a bunch of GamePass games as well.
No issue here. Played yesterday and this morning and afternoon. Been using the espn app after that. Played with friends locating across the US. No issue for us.
I'm having two issues. Doing a replay of the Halo Infinite campaign and I've collected a couple Spart Cores that didn't register, still says I have 0. And on the rewards app, I activated the Forza Horizon 5 punch for this month's challenge and I've recorded 7 achievements since. Still haven't gotten credit for those 500 points. Wondering if these are related to the server issues or not? I can still play all my games, physical and digital, DLC for all of them work and achievements are still popping.
I do think what's going on is a big problem, and not just an MS issue but one throughout the industry, I don't love the all-digital, online-heavy focus. You can make online an integral part of the console without the other nonsense, Xbox 360 is a perfect example.
Hi, I’m away from my Home Xbox & couldn’t play anything yesterday, I haven’t tried this morning, but status page still shows problems.
I really think MS should find a way to let us play offline in these situations (on our non-home Xbox). Thanks
We are so reliant on this technology world.
I remember two years ago when our internal system went down at work for nearly a day.
It was like what we gone do all day why it’s being fixed, it’s crazy.
When I first joined the company in 1986 there was so little reliance on today’s technology we could have just carried on working, with about 20% of the business affected only.
Years ago I had non-stop issues with them being down. People thought I was crazy. This time it's working for me and not for many others. Must be certain regional data centers?
Been playing Nioh 2 remastered this week on PS5 so hadn't noticed. Hope everything is fixed soon for everyone, was going to play Max Payne 3 later
Is this in the America's only? I have played my fair share yesterday during the day ( on disk, gamepass and even tried a couple through cloud) with no issues
Wow didn't even know this was going on to this scale, I've had very minor issues loading elden ring but all I've had to do was close the game and reopen. Gamepass working fine too, sucks people have to go through this.
I've had no problems from UK. But paying for a service you cant get seems Trash. Then again this thing is expected to happen every once in awhile.
Thankfully I've not had that issue, same as some others here posting in the UK, but can empathise with the situation, especially across a whole weekend.
As Microsoft has made 90% of their focus about Game Pass then they need to make sure the games on this service are playable.
Even if that means backup verification servers for redundancy.
And when cloud gaming goes mainstream and millions of people are all streaming from game servers at once this will happen even more frequently.
Looking forward to that all service future I must say.
Definitely not cool how this works. A game on your console should work. I for some reason could play cloud games on my Xbox but nothing natively when it first happened. I also couldn't play cloud on my phone. A big weakness in the ecosystem right here.
Very true technology has made work a lot easier and faster.
Just been over my local park watching the softball and baseball tournaments ⚾️ Mainly American teams, used to be in one of them back in the day.
They still as shouting and noisy as I remember back in my day 😂😂😂
@Royalblues Xbox play nowhere 😂
@Royalblues oh no you've really hurt my feelings :.(
I was having issues making a group over xbox with my brother so we can chat (He's in Cali and im in China) . Not sure if that is related at all
