Don'tcha hate it when this happens? Xbox Live is temporarily down at the moment, meaning UK players (and possibly players in other regions) may be having some problems when attempting to sign in.
Microsoft knows all about the issue currently affecting Xbox Live and is working to sort it out, apologising to gamers for the inconvenience when trying to log in. Xbox.com currently seems to be borked at the moment too.
So, sit tight and hopefully your gaming services should resume soon.
A Microsoft PR has issued a statement to OXM regarding the current Xbox Live issue:
"We're aware that some users may be experiencing difficulty logging in to Xbox LIVE at present. This does happen from time to time while updates and fixes are made to the system and should not be symptomatic of any larger problems.
"A service update can be found on Xbox.com, alerting Xbox LIVE users to the current state of the service. I don't have an update on timeframe for service to resume as usual, but we are working on the problem."
