Some Xbox One users can't sign on to Xbox Live right now, 'Titanfall' not to blame [Update: Back up]

"Don't blame me; I have nothing to do with Xbox Live sign on problems."

Twitter may have been down for the better part of an hour today, but now there's another online issue that's affecting a smaller but highly dedicated group of people. Microsoft has issued an alert stating that some Xbox One users cannot currently sign into Xbox Live.

This has been going on for over two hours at the time of this writing. The Xbox Live alert page states, "We are aware of the issue and we have a stellar team working very hard to fix it. Thanks for being patient."

The sign-on issues come less than a day after the long awaited multiplayer-only first person shooter "Titanfall" was released for the Xbox One. However, the game is not the cause of the current problems, according to Microsoft's Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb.

We will update this post when the Xbox Live sign-up features have been restored.

Update: After several hours, Microsoft's status page has now been updated with word that the Xbox One sign on issues with Xbox Live have been fixed.

I am not even able to sign in on my Xbox One, I can't even play my single player games or access my save files! I thought the online DRM check-ins had been taken out of the Xbox One?

There's a problem with that. IIRC achievements don't work properly on Xbox One when you're not signed in online, it happened to me with Need For Speed Rivals. Got sick of it trying to connect to lobbies when starting, taking ages, so I disconnected the network, Achievements wouldn't pop. There's been a couple system updates since so I'm not sure if it's fixed, I don't spend all day scouring tech sites.

Somewhere on Neowins' forums I asked about the same issue. I was offline for 2 or so days playing Forza 5 and achievements were not popping, ones I knew should have, such as leveling up. Once I returned online I had 10+ achievements pop, all dated (unlike 360 achievements unlocked offline). So no worries, once you log back in online they should pop, or maybe after you login and put the disc in to play.

Thanks for clearing that up Alladaskill. I do remember on NFS: Rivals they did pop eventually, but not all at once. I've never had to use Forza 5 offline so now know what'll happen if I do. Thankyou

I didn't know it would work like that, I wish they made it clearer... at least now I know. So I missed out on gaming for nothing!
