You might have been kicked off of Xbox LIVE and you might be having some problems logging back in. We are investigating this issue and we’ll get this fixed ASAP so you can get back to your favorite games, apps, movies, and music. We will let you know how things are going in 30 minutes. We appreciate your patience.
I was just kicked off of a rousing game of Hide-and-Go-Seek, Minecraft Edition with my girlfriend, so I can confirm this firsthand. I’ll update with more info when it becomes available.
Update: That was quick! No less then five minutes later and I’m back online. I’ll keep you updated on that Hide and Seek game, though.
