After trying to sign into my Xbox Live Account, I was greeted with an error, and also experienced a similar error when trying to connect to Xbox Live via a Games for Windows Live game. Microsoft says that those who are trying to post or view messages on Xbox.com may experience issues as well. Additionally, some 360 owners are currently unable to watch video content or listen to streaming music from their consoles.
