Update: The problems seem to have been fixed

Microsoft's Xbox Live is not working correctly for some customers at the moment, with the company reporting that they are experiencing sign up issues with the online service, along with issues with purchasing content.

According to many user complaints on Twitter, as of 7 p.m. ET on August 2, Microsoft's Xbox Live is down for many users. That's also been confirmed by the Xbox Live Service Status page.

We'll keep an eye on the service status page and update this post when Microsoft fixes them.
