Xbox Live Woes Continue – Players Can't Sign in or Access Purchases

By Sam Quirke, 15 days ago
Some of you, like me, may have had a bit of a panic last night when turning on your Xbox Ones, only to be met with a black screen of death. That issue turns out to have been a network-wide problem caused by a dodgy update, and has now been fixed — but Xbox Live problems are persisting according to Xbox Support.


Although the current problem is less terrifying than our consoles acting as though they are completely bricked, players are still struggling to sign in and access their purchases. So far Xbox haven't provided a timescale, so it's something to be aware of if you are planning to put in some serious play time this evening and over the weekend.

We'll update this story as we learn more.
