Microsoft Fixing Xbox Live Glitch

Microsoft is aware of a glitch that has been shutting some Xbox 360 users out of the Xbox Live network ever since the new dashboard update that was released in early December.

These new Xbox errors have started coming up in the past week, according to gaming site Joystiq, with subscribers getting locked out of the network, unable to purchase content from Microsoft’s online store, and prevented from downloading their profiles.

The common code that many users have been seeing is code “801540B7” as well as code “80070571”.  The site has heard back from Microsoft, which reports that it knows about the issue and is working on a fix.

“We have recently identified an Xbox Live profile data error that results in Error Code ‘801540B7’ for a small number of Xbox Live members,” somebody on the Xbox Live team told Joystiq. “The error instructs users to attempt to re-download their Xbox Live profile and directs them to customer service support for further assistance. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused to our loyal Xbox Live members and are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.”
