“We’ve seen reports that users are having trouble signing in,” a message from Microsoft says.

“We have teams working on it now! We’ll update you with additional details as soon as we can.”

One user said: “Attempting to login to my profile on Xbox One and it won’t let me.”

Another wrote: “My Xbox live has been down for like 1 hour aswell.”

A Twitter user said: “I tuned on my Xbox I was logged out and the WiFi was off as well on it.

“Tried signing into my WiFi and profile and didn’t work.

Some say it is back up again – while others are still waiting to be connected.
