Edit: Looks like it was only down for an hour or so – all back to normal now @ 22:30 GMT
It looks like Xbox Live is experiencing some issues, with folks unable to get online or join friends in matchmaking. Xbox Twitter support is home for the weekend, but the support website is confirming that there are issues into which they are looking.
Recently, Sony gave PlayStation Plus members a one day extension to say sorry for recent outages and just last week Snoop Dog very publicly called out Microsoft for outages after being unable to play Madden NFL.
What should Microsoft do to put this latest issue right for paying subscribers? Let us know in the comments!
Edit: to correct the length of the PSN extension from one week to one day.
