Xbox Live service alert – Forza 5, store downloads and purchases affected

Published on March 25, 2014 in Xbox Live

Ladies, gentlemen, I bring good news and bad news. The good news is that this morning’s Xbox Live service alert is no more – you should be able to access and play Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer and GTA Online just fine.

The bad news is that there’s a new Xbox Live service alert in its place, which warns of difficulties with Marketplace purchases across Xbox 360 and Xbox One and with Forza Motorsport 5 in general. Ack, these service alerts. Like velociraptors, they know how to divide and conquer.

Users may have trouble paying for items using store currency, adding new currency to their wallets, viewing account balances and downloading items they’ve already bought. “Thanks for hanging in there while we resolve this issue,” reads a postscript, added at 15:31 GMT today. “Feel free to check back in half an hour for an update.”

Forza Motorsport 5 players, meanwhile, may struggle to access cloud data, capture game videos, jump into multiplayer or post/view game performance. There’s an end in sight on this front, at least. “If you are having trouble using certain game features in Forza 5, this is due to a scheduled maintenance taking place right now. Thanks for being patient. We’ll let you know as soon as this work is complete.”
