Today, due to a breakdown in the Xbox network, a large number of users reported experiencing network outages. Problems range from not being able to access Cloud Gaming, to problems with subscriptions or purchases. These faults were constant on the Xbox game console. Microsoft has confirmed that the platform has some problems with the cloud capabilities it offers to Xbox Network users.

According to the information shown on the Xbox support site, there were problems with the store and subscriptions, cloud games and remote gaming, and even the main “Games and Games” section. After nearly 7 hours of consecutive work, the Xbox Gaming service is online again.

From user feedback, Xbox network issues include, but are not limited to:

  • No purchases from the Microsoft Store, including games, DLC, in-game purchases and accessories, regardless of payment method
  • You cannot manage or make subscription purchases, including Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Live Gold, and more.
  • Cannot launch the Xbox Cloud Games dialog box regardless of the device
  • Impossibility to launch and play many digital games, especially those included in subscriptions such as Xbox Game Pass

However, during these hours, the Xbox could only play physical or offline games, and few players survived. Fortunately, disconnecting the Xbox network will not affect anything related to Xbox accounts, multiplayer games, social features, or other related services and features. If you can start the game, it can work normally, including cloud recordings, achievements, etc.

Is it time to buy an Xbox? Many top games may leave the PlayStation soon

Following the completion of the acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft, the fate of some interesting games hangs in the balance. A Sony spokesman told The Wall Street Journal on Thursday, “We expect Microsoft to abide by its contractual arrangements to continue to ensure the multi-platform nature of Activision games.”“. However, this is only an optimistic statement, not a definite one. That’s what Phil Spencer, CEO of Microsoft Gaming, said

“Until this transaction is completed, Activision Blizzard and Microsoft Gaming will continue to operate independently. After the deal was completed, Activision Blizzard’s business will report to me as CEO of Microsoft Gaming“. This statement suggests that anything ““agreements” that Activision Blizzard had before its sale will be terminated for a new “agreement with Microsoft”.

Activision Blizzard

Microsoft’s chief executive said Microsoft plans to bring as many Activision games as possible to the Xbox Game Pass. There are also reports that Microsoft may release an exclusive Xbox game Activision. The company did so after its previous acquisition of game developers.

Overall, it seems that whether Activision Blizzard games will remain on the PlayStation or not is a decision for Microsoft. Activision Blizzard is responsible for many popular titles such as Call of Duty, Warcraft, CandyCrush, Tony Hawk, Diablo, Overwatch and others.

It is worth mentioning that Spencer also said earlier… “I just want to tell the players who play Activision Blizzard games on the Sony PS platform, we do not intend to take the community off the platform and remain committed to this point.” According to an earlier Microsoft statement, the planned acquisition includes iconic Activision Blizzard and King Studio franchises such as Warcraft, Diablo, Overwatch, Call of Duty and Candy Crush Saga.
