Xbox Live is having some problems today and no-one’s angrier about it than Snoop Dogg

Xbox Live has apparently suffering from a few performance issues today that are keeping players from accessing cloud storage, finding friends, Game DVR, leaderboards and matchmaking in-game. That’s according to Microsoft themselves. If that wasn’t bad enough, Snoop Dogg has taken to his Instagram to register his displeasure with the situation.

Microsoft’s official Xbox Live Status page stated that the aforementioned problems were affecting users on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Xbox 360 and had to do with players trying to connect to others.

Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg has taken to his Instagram to take Microsoft to task over the issues and warn other players of what they’ve done to his valued gaming time today.

Everything seems to functioning okay at present, but here is the message Microsoft Support posted on the matter earlier:

Hey Xbox members, are you having trouble creating or joining your multiplayer sessions? Are you running into an issue with viewing notifications? We are aware of these issues and are working with our engineers to get this corrected ASAP! Thank you for your patience while we work. We’ll post another update when more information becomes available.

Not to be outdone, Snoop issued a statement in response:

A message to Xbox One or Microsoft or whoever the fuck: Y’all fuckin’ servers fuckin’ wack, man, y’all gonna make me switch to PlayStation if y’all don’t ever get this shit fixed. It’s that difficult to play somebody online. What the fuck is you doing, Bill Gates? Fix your shit, man.

At the time of writing, Bill Gates is yet to respond.
