Either way, the entire device and all the games on it are useless until Xbox Live is up.

I feel for those poor employees having to work on a day they should be home enjoying time with family.

Did you try playing the games while switching the console to Offline (Menu button>Settings>Network>Go offline)?

You can only play offline on your "Home Xbox", do you have more than one xbox or have you had yours replaced at some point or something?

I did, at first I couldn't find the setting, but once I did I set it to offline. I "log in" as myself, but offline.

Both - I have an Xbox 360 that I play on sometimes, and I've had my Xbox One replaced. When I sent in my Xbox One to get repaired, I wound up buying a new one that I've used ever since. I've never booted up the replacement that came back.

It looks like I'll have to set this Xbox as the "home" one once the system is up and running? It looks fairly straightforward on the Xbox site. Odd that the licenses would switch over, since the games never existed on whatever the "home" Xbox currently is...

Yeah you can only have one home xbox, sounds like your original one is probably set up as that. So you can either hook that one up or change it to your newer xbox.

Thanks, I had no idea! Hopefully the connection will be up soon, but either way, I'll eventually need to swap it over.

So it turns out you guys were right; it was a DDoS attack. Got home from Xmas dinner w/ family & friends around 10pm, couldn't sign in. I was stuffed and all ready to sit my ass on the lazyboy for some Destiny. I signed up for the text alert when Live was back up, which came in around 3:30 am. Merry friggin Xmas LOL!

This is a good example for removing certain apps from Xbox live requirements. I shouldn't need to be connected to Xbox live to play Netflix.

It's no longer behind the Gold paywall, but you do have to be connected to XBL to use it; God only knows why. I believe that the same thing is true of Netflix and PSN, at least on PS3.

It is frustrating that none of the major companies seem able or motivated to do something about these attacks. Their frequency and severity seems to be increasing and if the Microsofts and Sonys of the world want to continue to be paid for their services they should be more vigilant about policing their networks.

It's not easy to defend against DDoS attacks; probably both Sony and MS had defenses up but hackers are always working to find their way around (or through) those.

If it were happening frequently it'd be a much bigger problem. I doubt that many if any people are going to stop using their MS and Sony consoles due to the occasional problem. It was just evil for a group to stage this attack on Christmas day . Who gets off on disappointing probably hundreds of thousands or millions of kids who got Xboxes and Playstations for Xmas?

Just some helpful little know info, PS3 tries to make you login when turning on netflix, but if you just cancel out of the screen with "O" the login screen goes away and Netflix connects. I don't understand why Xbox doesn't work the same, ugh.

You know, I think that I knew that, having managed to use Netflix on my PS3 during that extremely long outage when PSN's customer information was hacked.

Screw the kids. What about me LOL? Seriously though, it's down AGAIN for the last 3hrs. Allowing it two days in a row is getting a little old. I can sign in this time, and watch movies, but can't get into Destiny or COD.

Huh. I just whiled a couple of hours away in Destiny with no problems.
