Xbox has issues preventing some gamers from launching cloud games, playing digital games, and making purchases from their store. According Xbox status pagethe outage started around 4 p.m.
“We are aware that some users are unable to purchase and run games or start Cloud Gaming sessions”, Xbox Support he said in a tweet. “Our teams are investigating. Please stay tuned here and on our status page for updates. http://xbox.com/status.”
This most recent series of problems follows a massive outage that lasted several hours on Friday night and into Saturday morning. Some players were unable to start Cloud Gaming sessions, launch digital games, make purchases, or even access streaming apps including Netflix and Disney Plus.
although xbox seemed to solve these problems, it appears that issues with their store, digital titles, and Cloud Gaming have started to resurface. like my colleague tom warren notesif you are affected by the outage, you should still be able to play games offline when you have your xbox configured as your “home” console. xbox support also says restarting your Xbox console might help.
Update, May 7 at 5:45 pm ET: Updated to add that restarting your Xbox console can help resolve some issues.
