Anyone else having issues going/using Microsoft services currently?

The Xbox one is about to launch in about an hour in the UK region...

While playing GTA Online I was having all sorts of weird connection issue and got booted off Live once but others were still in the game when I came back so not sure.

If all their talk about those servers is up to snuff it shouldn't buckle.

I'm probably jumping to conclusions, but this seems a bit suspicious to me. I wouldn't be shocked if this is some sort of coordinated denial of service attack. There are a lot of people out there with dumb grudges against MS that would love to see things go bad.

My exact thinking.

@chaser324: Yeah, thats a bit tin foil hat right now. If it persists into the night then that might be exactly it. If nobody can update their Xbox tonight they are all going to be nothing but paperweights for everyone tonight. I hope everything goes smoothly for them. That would suck for them to put in all this work and then have their big moment blown.

Alright, it looks like it's slowly coming back. Depending on where you are, you may or may not still be having issues.

Could be that they're doing stuff with server prior for the US launch. It would be impressive if Live will not go done somewhere in the next 24 hours.
