According to Microsoft's Xbox Live Status page, users are having some problems. The affected services include:

  • Buying downloadable items
  • Downloading items that you have already purchased
  • Paying for downloadable items with stored currency, adding additional stored currency, or viewing your balance
  • Creating new accounts on Xbox Live, managing those accounts or recovering an account on a different device
  • Signing into Xbox Live

As always, you can opt to have Microsoft notify you by phone call or text when the service is back up and running. In the meantime, let us know via our tips line if you're having other issues with Xbox Live.
