We reported earlier today that the PlayStation Network was experiencing connection issues. And now, Microsoft’s online service is having problems of its own.

A number of people are reporting that they cannot sign into Xbox Live. The service’s status website confirms the errors, and Microsoft says it is working on it. Some Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners are also having trouble accessing content that they purchased previously from Xbox Video.

“It’s come to our attention that some of our members are unable to sign in to Xbox Live,” reads a post on the Xbox Live status website. “You can rest assured knowing that we’re doing all that we can to correct this issue right away. Thanks for being patient while we work.”

We’ve reached out to Microsoft to ascertain the cause of the outage.

Sony’s problems today stem from a huge number of people flooding PlayStation Network to start playing the beta test for developer Bungie’s highly anticipated sci-fi shooter, Destiny. That went live at 10 a.m. Pacific, and the service has had intermittent issues since then.
