Xbox Live is down today, October 29, 2022, causing issues for those wishing to access digital games over the weekend.

The Xbox Service Status Page currently says that “you may have problems launching games”, which is indeed true.

Issues will arise for those accessing content on Xbox consoles, PC and through Xbox Cloud Gaming.

I was level three to four in the Bloody River level of Resident Evil VillageMercenaries’ new mode – for the last achievement I needed to complete the game (again) – before it booted up and told me I had to be online to access the title I had purchased.

According to Xbox, the issues first surfaced at 3:00 p.m. AEDT, and as of 3:45 p.m. AEDT they are being investigated. Let’s hope things get back to normal soon.

Update: The question seems to be relatively specific to Persona 5 Royal; the problem was actually identified at 3:00 p.m. AEDT on October 21. Although we had some issues with Live today, a restart of our console (not even our router) fixed most of the issues. How did you do?
