This is kind of disconcerting, If I cannot sign into my profile then I can't play my games? Makes it seem like it DOES need to be always online. I can access the store but cannot use any of my apps or games without signing in.


To be fair you can play games offline. The problem, from what I understand, is that the Xbox recognizes that you have a working online connection and is forcing the sign in to go through live. If your internet was out it would just let you sign and play normally I believe. So unplugging that ethernet cable might work.

But this is a very rare situation where XBL is having sign in issues which is causing the One to become useless almost. Very rare.

Well...shutting down the One until further notice. Looks like it's gonna be a PS4 evening.

You are correct, my mistake. Disconnecting from wireless will let log onto my console and play offline. Still a bummer though :/

Same thing happened to me. I went to the settings app and my network status basically said the reason I can't connect is due to "Xbox Live core issues."

What's worse is you can't even play your games.


Do you get paid to lie on the internet?


I can't. Since I can't login, none of my games will let me play. Unless I choose to play without a profile if a game gives the option but then I wont be able to save my progress. Valiant Hearts for example. Kind of a bummer.


disconnect from the internet (ethernet or wifi). ta da! suddenly it works for you!

I have to have a connection to Xbox Live in order to watch Netflix on my Xbox One.
