Microsoft Looking Into Fixing “0x8004888d” Error Code For Xbox One Users [Update]

A lot of Xbox One users seem to be complaining on the official Xbox support forums about not being able to connect to live. According to them, they are facing an error code “0x8004888d” whenever they tried to sign-in into their account. Microsoft has issued a official response that they are currently investigating these issues, and they should be fixed soon.

According to various threads on official forums for the Xbox One, people started having issues with signing-in into Xbox Live today, starting about a few hours ago. The official status for Xbox Live shows that the service is currently “limited” and Microsoft is looking into it. The affected console is Xbox Only only. There doesn’t seem to be any indication that this issue affects Xbox 360 users as well.

    1) turn off the internet connection but not your xbox
    2) log in in your xbox account (without internet connectio) you could be able to sign in…
    3) turn on the i connection and you will be in…
