We’ve been getting tips for the last few hours from users that the Windows Phone Store has not been working, specifically when you try to go download an app, you get an error message (we’ve seen a few mentioned).

As it turns out, heading to alerts us to what appears to be a general system failure on several fronts, including Xbox 360, Windows Phone, Windows 8, Zune PC Client and more. That’s the bad news.

The good news is you’re not alone and clearly Microsoft is on top if it, though we have no idea if it’ll be back in 20 minutes or 2 hours. Just standby and we’re sure some of these last minute hiccups will pass on by. Thanks, everyone, for tipping us
