Xbox Live Marketplace experiences internal error

Written by David Stellmack

Not a hack from the outside, for sure
Microsoft has been having some problems with its Xbox Live Marketplace and its Games for Windows Marketplace. The issue seems to be centered on some sort of an internal error; and we are told that users can rest assured that it is not a security breach that has exposed user data.

From what we understand, the “internal operational error” is causing issues with users trying to browse and purchase content. Microsoft is throwing all possible resources at the issue to get it resolved as quickly as possible. As of this writing, there is no clue as to when they will get resolution for Marketplace.

Last time a similar situation happened, Microsoft gave everyone who downloaded it a free copy of Undertow. We have no idea whether Microsoft will be giving something away as an apology for the problems. Our sources do whisper that they don’t expect the problem to continue much longer.
