Xbox: Games will not start, causing significant disruption; users continue to report issues.


Over the weekend, Xbox Live experienced a major outage, and it doesn’t appear that all of the bugs have been resolved. Players have been reporting that they have been unable to start their digitally purchased games on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S in recent days. During the start process, the games briefly displayed a graphic of the respective game, but then an error message appeared. Despite having a working internet connection, the consoles stated that “an Internet connection is required to start the game.” Users have flooded the internet with videos and screenshots.

The sаme wаs true for Xbox Cloud Gаming sessions, which were аlso hаlted in recent dаys due to аn Xbox Live error.
