AGHHHH.

I’ve been staring at my copy of Titanfall all… day. I’ve been itchin’ to hop back in the saddle of my Giant-Robot-of-Doom since the Beta ended, and finally, launch day was here — but I had to, you know, work. Being an adult has its perks and all, but video game launch days tend to be a little less awesome then they used to be.

Finally, the ol’ whistle blows. I pop in my copy… install the game… hit the launch button… aaaand..

“There was a problem. We couldn’t sign you in. Try again in a few minutes.”

Turns out, I’m not the only one.

While some people seem to be able to log in, the official status page says that the “Core Services” for Xbox Live on the Xbox One are currently “Limited” — particularly, signing in is busted. If you’re already signed in, you might be alright. But if you’re just getting home from work and are ready to squash some fools? Here, you’ll need this.

At the time of publishing, Xbox Live has been up and down (but mostly down) for four hours.

Update: Hurray! 6 hours or so later, Microsoft says it’s fixed. If you’re still having trouble, their recommendation is a timeless one: power cycle your console. If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go play this game until I can’t keep my eyes open.
