It looks like Microsoft is once again having some issues with its Xbox Live service today. The Xbox Live status page shows that some people might have issues with signing into the online service from their Xbox 360 console, Windows 8, Windows Phone and Games For Windows Live, along with the Xbox.com website.
The status page shows that the last update on the situation happened a couple of hours ago. It added, "For our members that are currently unable to sign in to their Xbox LIVE accounts, we’re right here with you! We’ve got our team engaged and they are working hard to get everything back to normal as expediently as possible."
The status page also indicates that the outage extends to people who are trying to post or view messages on the Xbox.com forums. Finally, some Xbox 360 owners are currently unable to watch video content or listen to streaming music on their consoles.
Naturally, we will update this page when Microsoft fixes this latest Xbox Live downtime period. Hopefully it won't last for much longer.
Update 1: Well, it looks like people can read and post to the Xbox.com message board forums again.
Update 2: Microsoft has now announced that the Xbox Live issues have now been fixed
