Mircrosoft Services and Xbox live down – Hacked or Just Another Glitch?

Reading Time: 1 minutes

Frustrating news for Xbox Gamers as several of them reported that they had trouble signing in. To be specific the gamers reported 0x87dd0004 login errors on Microsoft’s online gaming service. According to DownDetector the trouble with gaming service began at 5:25 pm.

The Xbox servers have been hacked in the past and while there has been no official word from Microsoft regarding the hack we can’t rule this possibility out.

Since the outage, gamers have taken the social media by storm and are bashing Microsoft for their incompetence. Some of the responses from Reddit are shared below.

And while typing this news, I also found out that its not just Xbox Live that is down, apparently Outlook and Office 365 are also down. Most of the Microsoft services are having this issue.  This does seem like a hack attempt, lets just hope that they manage to save our private information. We will keep you updated as this news progresses.
