Microsoft is a large company, so it's natural to see the occasional outage on a system of theirs—this is especially true on Xbox 360, which Microsoft is slowly phasing out support. Still, are there any problems with Xbox 360 right now, and how do you check?
Are Xbox 360 Servers Down?
While server status is very fluid, it's still useful to report on current outages or problems that users are experiencing. The status may change quickly, though, as most outages from Microsoft are remedied in a relatively quick manner. As of now, the following services for Xbox 360 are reported to be having problems:

How to check Xbox 360 Server Status
Currently, the best way to check the server status of your Xbox 360 is via the Xbox Status site run by Microsoft. This will change in 2024 when Xbox 360 consoles are no longer supported on servers. After that, there will be no way to check the status, as server support won't be active at all.
When are the Xbox 360 Servers Shutting Down?
Microsoft is eventually planning to close all support for Xbox 360 servers, but this won't be happening any time in 2023. Those who are worried about service ending in 2024 still have half of that year to prepare. Service for Xbox 360 servers via Microsoft will officially end on July 29, 2024. After that, there will no longer be support on servers for the Xbox 360 console.
