Xbox Live Issues Are Causing Some People To Be Unable To Launch Games

On the Xbox Support twitter, Microsoft has stated that they are currently investigating an issues with Xbox Live that include a complete lock down of the ability to launch any games from the system.

The tweet directs people to the Xbox Live status page which, as of writing this, tosses up an error message stating that the status page itself is down.

It is somewhat of an upsetting scenario for people, especially considering that the online check for launching games was supposed to have been completely removed before the system launched. Earlier this year, Brian Shea (who also reported that he has been unable to launch Xbox One games today) argued that Xbox One's digital game errors are unacceptable and that players should never lose access to single-player games due to server issues.

While Jared Leto played the Joker in Suicide Squad and will reprise the role in Harley Quinn's own spin off, the studio is reportedly looking for a younger actor to play the Joker's origin.

Owners of the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U can now pay for their digital purchases on those consoles with PayPal as an option.

PayPal and Nintendo announced the additional option rolling out to various regions today, though not all PayPal accounts will work with all regions, despite the eShop being region free.

To use PayPal, users link their account when purchasing something on the eShop. The change has been a long time coming for Nintendo console owners and suggests Nintendo is at least looking to modernize payment options of their digital stores.
