Microsoft’s online gaming portal for the Xbox One users, is once again down and having problems.
Xbox live is down according to Microsoft’s official service website and hundreds of gamers on this service have gone to the social media, actively reporting it. This has occurred just after two days when a cyber attack took the service down during the entire Christmas day. Rival console giant Sony’s PlayStation Network faced even a more humiliating situation by keeping gamers offline for 48 hours straight during this time.
Microsoft’s site says that “Sorry we’re unable to launch certain tiles and have been working on the problem and hope to see it corrected as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience. We’ll let you know of the issue within half an hour.”
This issue has kept many people from signing into their Xbox live accounts or even starting up some of the games. This includes multiplayer titles like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Destiny, which requires an online connection. But it also includes primarily single-player games like Far Cry 4 and Dragon Age: Inquisition, which often need to connect to a third-party server.
Lizard Squad claimed responsibility for the Christmas attack, but it also said that it had stopped its activities yesterday. Microsoft has not yet confirmed that today’s issues are related to the Christmas attacks. Sony has also released that its services are still offline because of a designed disruption by some foreign body.
