Xbox Live sign-in issues hitting some Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners [Update]

Update: It looks like the sign-in issues with Xbox Live have been fixed, but Microsoft is now dealing with reports that some users cannot purchase content or downloadable items, or unlock Xbox Live achievements.

Original story: Some Xbox One and Xbox 360 console owners are not currently able to sign into Xbox Live. Microsoft is aware of the problem and is current working to fix the problems.

The current problem has lasted for about an hour so far. In a post on Microsoft's Xbox Live support page, it says:

"Xbox members, are you having trouble connecting to Xbox Live? We are currently working with our partner to find a fix for these issues. Thanks for being patient. Another update will be provided as soon as possible."

In addition, it appears some users have had issues with accessing the website. Microsoft again says it is "working with our partner to find a solution for this issue."

Thanks to Jeremy for the tip!
