Xbox Live servers down with Sept 8 surprise

By Alan Ng - Sep 8, 2015

It looks like Microsoft are running into some problems with Xbox Live servers down for Xbox One and Xbox 360 on September 8. This is a surprise to many users as the official Xbox live status page suggests that there isn’t any issues.

There hasn’t been any planned Xbox Live maintenance today either as far as we’re aware. Right now though at the time of writing, we can definitely say that we can’t sign in to Xbox Live for some reason.


We can see right away that we’re not the only ones having issues too. We’ve included some live feedback from Twitter showing that the issues appear to be happening globally too with Xbox Live down in UK, US and Australia among other countries.

It’s worth nothing that today is when the Destiny update 2.0 for Xbox One is live, while the FIFA 16 Xbox One demo should also be available – we’re unsure as to whether this is related to the outage though.


We’ll try to find an response from Microsoft on this for you, but in the meantime give us your status below and we’ll update this with more information.

Is Xbox Live down for you right now?

Update: Several hours later, Xbox Live is still down for all Xbox 360 users. Not great for those trying to download the FIFA 16 demo.

  • DruShady

    Xbox 360 down. 9:50 pm eastern time. During destiny taken king download. Using rj45, not wireless.

  • Coty Patton

    This is absolutely dumb. I was looking forward to playing the updated Destiny and I can’t because Xbox is down in Phx Az. You would think with all of the money that we pay Microsoft that they would be better prepared than this

  • Joel Collicott

    Cannot connect at all :(

  • Gavin Coyco

    I’m so excited about the new Minecraft PE update 0.12.0!! Please Mojang! I’ve been waiting for that update like in summer and August!! Please release the update Mojang!! PLEASSSSSSEEEEEE!!!!

  • twirk313

    its back up for me

  • boo

    PC Gaming doesn’t have such problems…

  • Ben MacLellan

    The servers are down because there is an update for destiny, the game has crashed xbox live on the past 2 DLC and the new one “Taken King” is going to be bigger than the first game and the 2 DLC together, its so big they are doing it in 3/4 smaller updates and its going to finish on the 15th. This was for the pvp part of the update and its crashed the live network. Xbox should have been prepared for this, I have lost my account because xbox can’t download profiles.

I was playing up until 2:20 AM Pacific Standard Time then turned off the XBOX and then back on to see if the Destiny 2.0 reset was live yet and now I’m unable to sign into live even though all my connections and tests were fine. Time for bed I suppose gonna have to check back in in a few hours !!
