[Update] Xbox LIVE is back online, everybody. As you were. [End of Update]

If you’re trying to log onto Xbox LIVE at the moment, you’re unfortunately going to have some “difficulties” getting onto the service.

After Microsoft sent out an alert warning users that we might “experience difficulties” signing into Xbox LIVE from both the Xbox 360 and, I gave it a go myself and, yes, I can confirmed Xbox LIVE is down.

“We are aware of the problem and are working to resolve the issue,” says “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.”

According to the site, and strangely enough, both ‘Matchmaking’ and ‘Xbox LIVE Marketplace’ are still up and running.

We’ll update if we hear more or if the service returns to normal.

This network outage is certainly a pain, considering our plans to get into Call of Duty for the just-enabled Double XP Weekend, as well as our weekly Battlefield Friday matches, of course.

Hopefully network operations return to normal soon.
