Great, thanks for the tip! I'm back to playing Dragon Age.

Live isn't down. Just the internet on Xmas day new systems. Wife is working today for Apple and dealing with the same thing with customers trying to update their devices.

The Xbox Live Service Status page says "Core Services Limited", with affected services being "Signing into Xbox Live". Once you're signed in all of the actual gaming services are up, though a few media apps are having problems. (Their servers are probably getting hammered).

It's nice that they have a "Notify me when this service is up and running" option; you give them a phone number and they'll text you or call you (presumably with a recorded message). I'd never noticed that.

It been widely reported that Lizard Squad probably did it/took responsibility for it. Are you sure it's just Xmas day traffic? Seems they'd be prepared for that in advance every year by now.

Perhaps it really was hacked with a DDoS attack but that ended and now they're just having a problem with people not being able to sign in. Their status page says that's the only problem and:

  • Purchase and Content Usage up and running
  • Website up and running
  • TV, Music and Video up and running
  • Social and Gaming up and running

This isn't the first time during Xmas Live has had issues with sign-in and services. 2007 I recall it was a week or 2 that no one could get on Live or stay logged in on the 360. My biggest point is that Live isn't down. Services may not be available which is what we see throughout the year but anyone claiming it is down or was down anytime today wasn't the case because some of us wouldn't have been online this morning or all day like I have myself. Someone posting they can't sign in all day doesn't equal Live is down.

I have mine setup as well. But these problems we have seen all year especially in the last couple of months.

Since it comes with a 12 song pack of Jimi Hendrix songs that I'd have paid $30 to get for 360 RS2014, the effective cost was $10 (if I'd planned to buy a cable it would have been $-20 ).

I don't know how I feel about using a game disc in my Xbox One. Since it's the only one it can live in the drive, but it delays quick start while the system checks it out. (Reading that disc is the only sound I've ever heard my Xbox One make). Sadly, if the DD ever goes on a deeply discounted sale (<= $20) I'll probably buy it ).

I've rarely had a problem logging in and never one that persisted for this long. Just lucky, I guess . No BFD; I have plenty of other things to do. Merry Christmas!

DAI is unplayable right now for me. I can start a game but then around 3 mins in I get booted as the system says 'unconnected from profile' and shoots me out to the menu after re-signing in. Never had this problem before so I do think it is due to the DDOS attack.

Tried to buy a new game online and it just clocks. MS is losing cash over this!

I feel for the poor engineers trying to fix this. I hope they can sick the Feds on these Lizard guys and send them away.

Xbox should work like the PS4. If you have a SP mode game, no matter what it is, you can trick it into working by disconnecting your Ethernet or wifi setting. You can still login to the console, play, get achievements, and so on.

I have had issues with my PS4 and digital content as well. It is pathetic. These systems claim to not need internet connections but look at happens when they do not. I turned off my internet on my One and finally got my profile loaded and into Dragon Age only to stare at a Loading screen that hung forever while trying to find the Bioware servers.


And to the pricks that took both networks on Xmas today. I mean how low can you be?All the kids trying to enjoy their new games today and you do this?

Dragon Age shouldn't have a problem playing its campaign offline and if it does it's on its developers.

As I recall, if you play the gladiator mode in Ryse offline you can't earn coin (in-game currency) because that's apparently tracked online, but you can still play (you can buy packs of it online with cash if you're desperate for the things that you can buy in-game with it). I believe that's the online restriction to single player offline play that I've run across.

Need for Speed and Battlefield 4, and maybe Garden Warfare will not work without pull-the-plug trick.

The single player games don't need any connection. I'm playing Wolf Among Us today, as an example.

You picked 3 EA games and they're all MP games.

if you're still having trouble with online stuff, try cold booting your system. I had the problem, cold booted and then was back gaming online.

Yes, this more than anything and same to their families. I'm sure this was an all hands on deck situation, everyone from the CEO to the Customer Service specialists were impacted, all at the worst possible time. Sadly, engineers and many others will lose even more time with families on post-mortem work, for weeks, if not months to come.

I logged in and got in my daily session of Destiny (an online-only game) for an hour without getting dropped or experiencing any delays. I never did get that "all clear" text though.

As a Sys admin, its nice to see someone mention this side of it.

I am still not able to log into my Xbone...anyone else?

I restart and it signs me in, doesn't connect to Live, and then signs me out.

Just got the text saying that the issue is resolved though I was able to log in a couple of hours ago. Nickff, if you still can't get on you should try a full boot; just rebooting if you have it set to Power Saver mode or press-and-hold the button on the face of the console to get it to boot from scratch if you have it set to Quick Start.

Full boot gets me signed in but not connected to Live...then it signs me completely out and doesn't allow me to sign back in. Ugh.

Thankfully, I've been ok on XBL for a few hours now.


Easy to bitch and complain about half-baked games, features, and consoles (I do it all the time! ) but this one does seem, based on very early reports, to have been totally outside of the control of the best and brightest thanks to the "wondrous" capabilities of the internet.


$hit happens all the time, but this is bread and butter stuff and it will be very painful. The fallout will be intense but hopefully change things for the better long term.


Good luck to the XBL and PSN engineers & all of the other impacted employees worldwide! Your efforts are greatly appreciated!
