  • Microsoft Office 365 Services Experiencing Widespread Outage

The latest issue to hit Xbox Live has been impacting users of the service today, and it's a doozy for those who enjoy digital content. Purchase and Content Usage is now limited according to Xbox Support, and it's impacting digital titles on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Another one said, "Great". The issues seem to be either very slow access to services or the inability to log back into services that need to be recovered.

Microsoft's online gaming service is down across Xbox One, Xbox 360, and other devices, according to the Xbox Live Status site.

Users worldwide reported issues on Tuesday with signing into these services, as ZDNet reported, with problems starting around 10:30 a.m. PT. DownDetector.com shows thousands of outages for Outlook, Xbox Live, Skype, OneDrive, and Office 365.

The problems appear to have started on Tuesday morning Pacific Time: people are simply unable to log into their Microsoft-hosted services. As you can see from the screenshot below, trying to update apps in the Windows Store on a system that was already fully authorized returns an error about a missing Internet connection.

"We're aware of reports of trouble logging into Xbox Live".

If you're feeling like you're watching an episode of "The Outer Limits", then don't bother adjusting your PC.

Microsoft confirmed the outages on several of its product service status pages.
