More On: Xbox Live Xbox One

Microsoft doesn't appear to have quite gotten past the issues that caused an almost three-hour outage for Xbox One users yesterday, as there are reports coming in that there are persistent download issues ongoing.  Unfortunately, this comes at a time when plenty of kids and adults are off from school/work due to the extreme cold and looking for some indoor entertainment.  Fortunately, per Xbox Support, they are aware of the download issue and are on it although they do not have a cause identified as of yet.


As always, keep an eye on the Xbox Support Twitter feed or the official Xbox Live Service page for the most up to date status, but we will also update this post once the issue is corrected.

[UPDTAE 1: DAN]  Per MS Support at 12:48 PM EST, issue is still ongoing.

Our engineering teams are still working to investigate this issue that is causing intermittent downloading errors on Xbox One consoles. We appreciate everyone's patience while this is looked into, and we will continue to update you all as we learn more.
