Windows 8 Games not connecting to Xbox Live?

    I had issues a week or so ago. Tried on three different computers and couldn't sign into any Win 8 game. However, my friend at work signed in just fine on their computer.

    Anyway, it seemingly resolved itself over one weekend.

    Anyone else have any recent issues? I unlocked 4 achievements in-game for Rabbids Big Bang and none have appeared to have synced with XBOX. This was after unlocking another achievement a couple of hours earlier that did sync.

    I played Abyss over the weekend and everything synced correctly. I am playing it on a Windows 10 machine, if that matters.

    Fling is a WP game, correct?

    Fling is indeed WP.

    I was making sure, lol. Figured I would point that out because they might get better traction for their issue from another thread.

    The Games app is down for me at the moment on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, so I can't sign into Xbox LIVE when ingame. The Store is down on Windows 8 but is up on Windows 8.1

    I have unlocked a number of achievements over the last week on my WP8 and they show up in the games but not syncing on xbox. The games I am currently having this with is Mass effect and Pac man. I hope it isn't an issue that requires a uninstall since ME has been delisted also am so close to finishing Batman which is a total grind for xp and coins

    Same. I'm hoping the achievements sync up later.

    It seems like Windows 8 Store has been shutdown! I went onto it earlier and it had an Error saying to get a newer version of Windows basically. Apparently it happened on October 31st. Luckily Windows 8.1 Store is still available.

    Seems to be a lot of Xbox Live issues right now, including signing in. The service status page has 3 issues right now.

    Hey guys, can't log in to Mahjong/Sudoku and Jigsaw.

    Not that i can't login but when i try to log in it shows me that this in-app purchase is not available?
    Weird stuff. Anyone got the same issue? Can't imagine the sign-in assistant thinking it is an purchase i want to make? That sounds dumb.

    However Number Puzzle works fine. Ultimate Word Games works fine too, despite launching it showed me a runtime broker error message - just like all the other apps.

    But for Sudoku/Mahjong/Jigsaw i can't even access to the main menu, since the game closes and it shows me the error message that i need to check my account.

    I did hear that MS was having store issues. Maybe it is related?

    I don't know actually, tried Ultimate Word Games again and suddenly got the same issue on that too. Probably a temporary issue.
