Xbox Live Core Services Experiencing Issues, Error Code 0X87DE0017 Returns Again

Xbox Live is experiencing issues again today after there was a massive down time at similar point during yesterday. This time, the error code 0X87DE0017 has made it impossible to run any application or game, if you were planning to play anything today.

In case you aren’t aware of this error code, this was related to some security breach earlier this month and was supposedly fixed by Microsoft. Unfortunately, it still hasn’t been fixed at all judging from the past two days outage of Xbox Live.

If you are unable to open any application or any of your digitally purchased content on Xbox One, you are unfortunately helpless in this matter, and have to wait until Microsoft can fix this issue, like they did yesterday.

Microsoft has acknowledged the issue faced by users on the official Xbox Live status page.


Hey Xbox members, are you having an issue accessing your account such as payments, subscriptions, security or forum settings? We are aware and are working hard to get this resolved ASAP! Thank you for being patient. We’ll post another update when more information becomes available.

There is no estimated time given for the fix so if you want to play any of your digital games or use any application, you will have to wait for a while. The disc-based games seem to work fine although Xbox Live is down meaning you won’t be able to play them online.

    This is quite a FUD article. I had the issue with it and it was solved with in an around an hour and that was several days ago. And even when it happened i took a few tries to get in and you could use almost anything and you could still play offline. To say it impossible to do any thing if you were planning today is just so blatantly over the top and false. The fact that site do this )because it isnt only this one) and are allowed to function and live and probably thrive just shows how far the gaming community and industry has fallen.

    Real gaming enthusiast need to start a movement to take back gaming.

    You journalist need to stop all the madness. People know why you post articles likeep this. You are just trying get to keep negativity about xbox going as long as you can. You are reporting stuff from last week and keep reposting the same stories to make it seem like xbox live keep having issues. It’s still more reliable than psn no matter how many times you post articles like this. We are on to the game now. We know you have N4g memberships just to spread this stuff around.

      XBL’s had more downtime this year than PSN has had.

      Damage control that.

    It has nothing to do with that security breach (which didn’t result in any problems to players, by the way). Where did you the info that relates the outage to the breach?

    It was a DDOS attack again!! That’s all

    Also, it wasn’t impossible to play games online. I was affected and I had to try three times to play a game online, but it worked. If one was to play offline, provided the home console was set, it would have worked perfectly
