Posted March 22, 2017

Xbox Live is now experiencing issues with users being unable to log into the Microsoft-branded gaming network for not just the Xbox One, but also Xbox 360 consoles and Windows 10 PCs. Normally these outages don't last too long for Microsoft, so hopefully by later today or tomorrow Xbox Live will be running smoothly again.

After more widespread issues earlier on Tuesday, the Office Service Portal now reports full health for Outlook.com, but says some users "are unable to access their OneDrive content", after signing in.
