Xbox glitch prevents some players from releasing digital games

Xbox is experiencing issues that prevent some players from playing cloud games, playing digital games, and making in-store purchases. As for the Xbox status page, the crash started around 4:00 pm ET and the company is currently working on a fix.

“We are aware that some users are unable to purchase and play games or launch cloud gaming sessions,” Xbox Support tweeted. Our teams are registered. Please stay tuned here and on our status page. ”

This latest set of issues follows a massive outage that lasted several hours from Friday evening to Saturday morning. Some players were unable to launch cloud gaming sessions, play digital games, make purchases, or even access streaming apps such as Netflix and Disney Plus.

Although Xbox seemed to have these issues fixed, it looks like issues with its store, digital titles, and cloud gaming are starting to reappear. As my colleague Tom Warren points out, if you’re affected by the crash, you can still play games if you have an Xbox as your “home” console. Xbox Support also reports that restarting the Xbox console can help.

Update May 7th 5:45 pm ET: Added that restarting the Xbox console may help resolve some issues.
