Bad news for those trying to play Xbox right now: Xbox Live appears to be down. According to the status page of Xbox Live, purchase and content usage are limited. The same can be said for the device’s social and gaming services. Affected platforms for purchase and content usage include Xbox One, Xbox 360 as well as Xbox on other devices. Xbox members may also have problems buying any downloadable items for the moment.
Meanwhile, Xbox gamers may also experience problems in unlocking Achievements in their games if they are using Xbox One, Xbox 360 as well as Xbox on other devices. Earlier, Xbox Support sent out a message on Twitter to assure gamers that they are already working on solving the issues. They tweeted, “We’re working hard on the current issues signing in to Xbox Live.”

Although, some Xbox customers already seem to be losing patience.
Later on Xbox Support sent out a follow-up tweet, announcing they have fixed any issues with regard to “sign in across devices.” The message reads, “Sign in across devices should be back to normal! Please Tweet us if you’ve got any other questions & we’ll get things sorted together.”
