Massive Outage Hits Microsoft email, Xbox & Skype

If you’re trying to play a game on your Xbox, make a call with Skype or check your e-mail with, you’re likely had issues this morning because there is a massive outage for all of the above at this moment. Details from The Verge:

Microsoft Accounts have recovered from an hour-long outage that prevented users from signing into their accounts this morning. Large numbers of Xbox, Skype, and Outlook users complained they were unable to access their accounts, with the login prompt noting that an account doesn’t exist. The Verge tested a number of accounts, and we confirmed there were widespread issues worldwide for at least an hour.

Things seems to be working fine now, and Microsoft has acknowledged that this did happen. But the timing isn’t great after the great Amazon #fail from last week.
