If you've been having problems logging into Xbox Live then you're not alone. Microsoft reported earlier today a global outage of services that need a Microsoft login - that, of course means Xbox Live.
Initially this was viewed as a local difficulty - local to the USA and Canada. It was then confirmed that the issue was global.Forbes
among others reported Microsoft spokeswoman Samantha McManus stating that, "We are aware that some customers may be experiencing difficulty accessing their Windows Live accounts.
"We're actively investigating the cause and are working to take the appropriate steps to remedy the situation as rapidly as possible."
As we put this story live, however, we are not experiencing any issues connecting.
