Xbox Live appears to be offline for many gamers. Reports of trouble with Microsoft's network are flooding in across Twitter and we've been able to confirm that attempting to sign in to Live results in an error (status code: 80072ee2.) All Xbox Live services are currently inaccessible to those affected. Microsoft's Xbox status page currently says users "may experience difficulties viewing backgrounds, channels, or slots from Xbox Live in the Xbox Dashboard" but the issue we're seeing appears far more severe. This outage comes just a day after Microsoft celebrated the tenth anniversary of Xbox Live.

Update: The Xbox Live status page now reflects that users are having trouble signing in. Microsoft says it will update the site every 30 minutes until the disruption is resolved.

Update: All remaining issues have seemingly been addressed: Xbox Live services have now been restored and are functioning properly.
