If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been trying to play online Xbox One games today, such as the newly-released Titanfall, you might be having a little trouble. Xbox Live is experiencing widespread difficulties on the Xbox One, and Microsoft issued a service alert saying that it is in a Ã¢â‚¬Å“limitedÃ¢â‚¬Â state.
In this limited state, many users are unable to log in. All other features are listed as Ã¢â‚¬Å“up and running,Ã¢â‚¬Â but really, if you canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t log in, that doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do you much good.
An obvious culprit would be the sheer number of people who flooded the servers to play Titanfall, but Larry Ã¢â‚¬Å“Major NelsonÃ¢â‚¬Â Hryb posted a Tweet denying that Titanfall is to blame.
If you are having issues signing into Xbox Live, we are aware of it and actively working on the issue. This is not a #Titanfall issue

He may be right, but this still puts a damper on TitanfallÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s launch day. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hard to imagine a worse time for Xbox Live to break. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll keep you updated as we learn more. We can only hope they fix the problem soon.
