The Xbox Live sign-in issue resulted in a flood of reports to live status websites like Downdetector and was quickly brough to the attention of Xbox Support social feeds.

"We've seen reports that users are having trouble signing in," the XboxSupport account said at 3:19 Eastern time on Wednesday. "We have teams working on it now! We'll update you with additional detail as soon as we can."

The latest update from the Xbox Live team said, "We're still investigating users seeing errors at sign in across multiple services & we appreciate your ongoing patience."

While Xbox Live Core Services are affected by the partial outage, Xbox owners should still be able to play games, stream media and access social features.

Microsoft describes Xbox Live as an "inclusive," "accessible" and "safe" platform for gaming. In February, the service passed 64 million subscribers.
