Update 4pm PDT: Looks like signin is working again (that was quick), Galaga still isn’t.

Xbox Live has been having some intermittent issues lately, to go with some issues over the last major holiday. Even Snoop Dogg threatened to leave the platform the last time Microsoft’s online gaming service had some issues. Today, Xbox Live is at it again.

According to Microsoft’s Xbox Live status page, some users are having issues signing into the service. Others can’t access their Backward Compatible version of Galaga on their Xbox Ones.
