Xbox marketplace not updating
Zune included a line of portable media players, digital media player software for Windows PCs, a music subscription service known as a "Zune Music Pass", music and video streaming services for the Xbox 360 game console via the Zune Software, music, TV and movie sales, and desktop sync software for Windows Phone.Zune also provided music streaming for United Airlines inflight after a partnership in 2010. ET today, Microsoft’s status page mentions “limited” access to Xbox Live “core services” — including sign-in, creating or recovering an account, and search — as well as making purchases, redeeming codes and downloading items.The problems are affecting all platforms: Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox on Windows 10 and Xbox on devices such as smartphones.One of the reasons Microsoft has made the Xbox One so chunky is to give it room to breathe.Zune was a brand of digital media products and services marketed by Microsoft.The net domain now redirects to Xbox's website, but the software retains the Zune name.
Even the first iteration of the Xbox 360 was smaller (if a touch fatter) 30.9cm wide, 25.8cm deep and 8.3cm tall.
The Zune hardware players were discontinued in October 2011.
In June 2012, Microsoft announced plans to discontinue all "Zune" services; instead Microsoft would distribute its digital media content and services under the Xbox Music and Xbox Video brands available on its line of products including Windows 8 PCs and tablets, Xbox 360 game console, and Windows Phone smart phones.
The launch day for any major game is a bad time for an online gaming service to go down, and it’s possible that Microsoft is dealing with an increased server load due to the arrival of today.
“Our engineers and developers are actively continuing to work to resolve the issue causing some members to have problems finding previously-purchased content or purchasing new content,” reads a note on the status page.
