Xbox Live, after being down for hours, Game Pass cloud gaming access back
For more than four hours on Thursday afternoon, Microsoft’s online gaming service, which helps players to participate in multiplayer games and access cloud-based games, was down.
“Users should once again be able to sign-in, complete purchases, and join chat sessions,” read the Twitter update from Xbox Support at 9:29 p.m. ET. “Thank you for your patience and as always, we’re listening.”
Another used a “Forest Gump” video clip of the lead character running to explain how players feel when they can’t connect online.
