Problem with Xbox Games app

    OH good! I had a feeling it was on MS side. Perhaps it took awhile to link your account? Perhaps doing it manually to link to server? Adding servers? Who knows?!! Glad to see you're up and running!

    How about you, Grant?

    Oh no! I'll have to assume it's MS servers. Yes?

    Ugh! New technology, new problems. Not only ISPs going down or slowing band width with high traffic times, but now cloud servers.

    Still waiting an an answer from Grant. He's a friend, so I'll PM him.

    Sorry, man! It started working... It could be a connection to MS's servers? Does your XBox work fine?
    I will be looking into it. Good thing you have Tony, he is a great contributor to the forums and is very helpful.

    Thanks, Grant.

    Hello, Rethgif. Have you updated the terms of use on xbox.com? You may want to see if that's it.

    My Xbox is broken at the moment but I did manage to sign in on a friend's Xbox. I did not get a prompt to agree to the new Terms of Use. I guess I've already agreed to them? It's such a weird problem. I'm surprised more people haven't posted on here with the same issue. The hunt for a solution goes on.

    Ah! It may be at fault of your local XBox? Serious mysterious...
