This Wednesday, Microsoft’s Xbox Twitter Support page was a galore of memes and spam. Why? Because a mysterious bug surfaced on the Xbox one consoles for nearly everyone across the globe. While some users reported a black screen, some users complained that they couldn’t get their console to start. And the very few users who luckily got past the startup screen were unable to log into Xbox live. 

Reports And Complaints

A lot of reports and complaints originated around 7 pm IST, saying that a lot of Xbox one gamers couldn’t boot their Xbox One up. Even after restarting it several times, there wasn’t a fix available to the problem. Meanwhile, a lot of gamers started reaching out to the Xbox Support page on Twitter, creating a mess. Literally everyone saw that coming.

Xbox Gives A Response

Xbox support tweeted a while later (you can check out the tweet here) and redirected the users to a Live status page which, surprisingly, was down as well. Gamers, obviously, were in a turmoil. So a lot of them resorted to hilarious ‘PS4 threats’ and a variety of memes. You can find them on the link mentioned above, and below as well.

This specific outage was received with a lot of hostility because it wasn’t allowing any gamer to play online as well as offline. So, all people were able to do was just stare at their screens until Microsoft worked on the bug.

Some hours later, Xbox support got back to their user base with the relieving news that the issue has been resolved. Gamers were able to get back online and text their buddies ‘Servers are back up, let’s play’. According to some tweets, the issue was caused due to a service update, that had to be rolled back in order to fix the outage. But hey, all’s well that ends well.
