Microsoft outages hit some Xbox Live, Outlook, Skype services

Xbox Live is down with users reporting the error code 0x87dd0004. On social media, dozens of people are complaining that they can not access certain games, apps, and other content on their Xbox devices.

Microsoft said Tuesday its army of faithful thumb mashers might experience difficulty signing in or buying downloadable items on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and other platforms running the company's popular game system.

Outlook and some Xbox services are now inaccessible for many users in Europe and parts of the US. It's a pain, but Microsoft is aware and working on it.

The Xbox Live status site also notes some users are having issues signing in and managing their contents.
