Xbox Live Marketplace down

Microsoft "working to resolve the issue"

Xbox Live users are reporting problems accessing Xbox Live Marketplace through both Xbox 360 and PC.

According to various CVG readers who've contacted us in the last hour (and we've tested the claims ourselves), Xbox 360 consoles are currently having trouble displaying any Marketplace content.

The problems arrive at the same time as a planned Xbox 360 dashboard update, and Microsoft says it's "aware" of the issue.

The Xbox Live support team said in a statement:

"Users may experience difficulties with the following services: Browsing Indie Games from the Xbox 360 console or Xbox.com, browsing the Games for Windows - LIVE Marketplace on a PC, Browsing Games Marketplace from the Xbox 360 console or Xbox.com.

"We are aware of the problem and are working to resolve the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience."

Although most likely related to the ongoing dashboard update deployment, after the PSN breach drama of the last month there are undoubtedly a few 360 owners on the edge of their seats.

We'll contact Microsoft PR for further comment.
