Limited Xbox Live outage for some Time Warner customers continues

According to Time Warner and Microsoft, "a subset" of users haven't been able to connect to Microsoft's Xbox Live gaming service since noon on Saturday. The outage isn't geographically focused, nor limited to a "tier" of subscribers. Both Time Warner and Microsoft blame the other company, with each claiming that the problem doesn't involve its hardware of software. According to Microsoft, "If you're having issues connecting to Xbox LIVE and are using the Time Warner ISP, thank you for being patient and sticking with us while we work out the problem. Rest assured we are still working hard alongside Time Warner to fix it as quickly as we can. We will continue to update you as new information becomes available." Electronista has contacted Microsoft for details, and this posting will be updated as events warrant.
