  • Noddypool

    Over the last few months due to my Xbox 360 crashing, I have upgraded to Xbox one but, this crashes, usually during FIFA Ultimate team, I have lost count of the number of games I have been winning only for the system to crash. To add insult to injury when I log back on I get a DNF, very frustrating. In addition I have a new telephone wire, new Ethernet cable and new router, the problem still persists. In addition games are not cheap and yearly subscription to Xbox live is another on cost, it would be good to have a system the works all the time!


  • Norman V Gleave

    How many time will my Xbox one keep dropping off. Due to problems over the last few months, I have added a new telephone wire, new Ethernet cable and new router. Unfortunately, the problem still persists, especially when playing FIFA Ultimate Team, I have lost count of the number of games I have been winning, only for the system to crash, to add insult to injury, when I finally get back on I get a DNF, It’s pathetic. Is there any possibility that Xbox live will invest in server improvement?

    Please help, it is so frustrating and costly.



  • Jamie Martin

    Still having this problem, was told by Microsoft this issues ‘is getting sorted today’ 5 days ago

  • Josh

    For the last two nights I’ve been disconnected from Xbox live during gaming with COD and whilst using now tv. It reconnects straight after most of the time but will drop out again ten minutes later!! I’ve tested my virgin internet and it it running fine on all my other browsers etc.
    What’s going on??

  • bob


  • Mr Fluffy

    this because Phantom squad is attacking x box

  • Spudbud

    not a big fan of microsoft i general, but it IS getting to be X-mas time and anyone moderately hacker-knowledgeable knows this is the time of year when Xbox and microsoft servers get DOS’d out the wazoo and hacked like its the main plot in wargames.

    however, this is the first time ive been on xbox to have issue lol although considering the hundreds possibly thousands of hack attacks microsoft commits on a daily basis, i can hardly consider them victims. seriously take a look at the Norse attack map, they practically have the Cyber attack bloodlust of a real nation state lol

  • Cindy Porter

    Lovely article – one of the best things I’ve recently read, and by far the most useful. Cool to read such a well-considered article! Try PDFfiller to fill PA MV-911 here It allows you to to fill out PDF files.

  • Jordan

    I was playing my game and then everything just crashed. the status pages are saying all is ok but it clearly is not.

  • John Syme

    seems impossible to sign in today and its been like that all weekend

  • Jim S

    I can connect but every 20 mins or so it disconnects from LIVE and I have to stop what I am doing go to the home screen and reconnect. A real pain when playing a game or watching a movie on netflicks. Was almost at the point of throwing my controller out the window last night. Live in the UK.

  • Daniel Vito

    My Xbox says it’s connected to the internet, and displays live features when I am not logged in. When I try to log in to my main account, it gives me a message saying it cannot connect. I am a programmer, I know technology. I first tried fixing it by restoring my network settings to default. Then I tried changing my connection type: Wired – Wireless. I also tried rebooting my router, but that did not work either. For my next attempt to fix it, I tried deleting my account and downloading it because there was the possibility that the files were corrupt. When I did this, it would not download the account back, so I lost my main account. Finally, I decided to log in on my friend’s account. My friend’s account worked, yet mine did not. This made me conclude that there must be some type of service issue. I did something, I almost never do, use the internet for help. I googled “Microsoft Xbox Live service problems September 2016.” Now here I am posting a complaint of service towards my favorite tech company. If you have tried everything that I have in order to fix your Xbox Live problems, and it has not worked; then you are one of few unlucky people whose account will never be functional again, due to a small Xbox Live server shutdown which has caused the loss of thousands of accounts.

  • sarah aka p3op73

    How long until the servers will be working again?

  • Brittany Dispensa

    No xbox live n dayton tn since 8:58pm on August 13th. I know it has nothing to do with my Internet service as it is functioning properly. I did not opt in for the “trial” xbox one platform through my 360 so I am assuming it is a major Microsoft server issue…?!?!?!

Xbox Live Reports

@Xbox @XboxGamePass I never realized how unrepresented I am in these types of videos till I saw this one. I live in the desert of Arizona and it averages 110. My phone shuts down from over heating. Not the best case scenario but neither is looking over your shoulder with your device in a window

@GamingBoltTweet They have to lock stuff down at this point. Its their only power play. No launch titles, inferior hardware, no answer to gamepass... no answer to xcloud. Looking forward to how they respond to xbox live being free going forward. Bet sony got used to that subscription cheque

@imJusSleepy Just curious what you perceive is the value of the Xbox over PlayStation? On the PS4 side, I see quality first- and second-party titles and a network that hasn’t gone down this year while Xbox Live has been down a few times. I get it if that’s where your friends are…

COD GBS chillin laying down come thru an watch !! COD #xbox #PC #litt #laughs #vibinn !! Affiliate Sub Goal: 85/90 Help me out!!

@goatpodcast007 @Colteastwood @josuelo0491 @JezCorden In terms of live, agree. I was more talking about services like remote play, cross buy etc on the PS side, which are only just being rolled out (xcloud) or have had change of marketing terms (smart delivery etc) on the Xbox side. It will all come down to the games, as it should.

@Zari_Wari Well I play on xbox and I'm totally down for getting rid of live. Not because it's shitty but because paying 60 dollars for a years is hard of the pocket. Nintendo has way better subscription if you ask me. You get a whole year with Nintendo for 40 dollars less the xbox

chillin laying down come thru an watch !! #DBD #xbox #PC #litt #laughs #vibinn !! Affiliate Sub Goal: 85/90 Help me out!!
