Xbox Live is currently down, Did you forget?

[UPDATE] Microsoft is doing some Fall cleanup today thus bringing down Xbox Live for the entire day, ouch!

Beginning today Monday, September 29th, 12:01 am to 11:59 pm PST Xbox Live will be down.  Microsoft is expected to clean up, but my guess is they’re testing “something” set to arrive later this Fall.  Nevertheless, don’t expect Microsoft’s New Fall Dashboard Update to happen!… at least we’re pretty sure it won’t happen.  So, it looks like ‘offline gaming’ will have to be an alternate solution.

Hmm, if you think about it.  Look at all the breakdowns for Xbox Live’s downtime.

– 1440 minutes
– 3 square meals
– the time will ready 3:00 twice
– 86 400 seconds
– Groundhog Day: The Movie

As you ponder on other “Daily” facts, it will be Tuesday. And what will you see on Tuesday?  The same stuff you saw on Sunday.. “Absolutely nothing. You Lose. Good Day Sir”

[UPDATE] According to Major Nelson, “The Live maintenace is taking longer than expected.” So you still can’t access Live or the My Xbox bit of Xbox.com, or post on the forums. Major Nelson is promising to update us on the situation at 0200 hours Pacific Standard Time, or 10 o’clock in the old money. updated 5:00am EDT

[UPDATE 2] It’s back up and running and… AND… it looks the same!

  1. mitch(the dumbass who forgot) September 29, 2008 @ 7:20 am

    yes…i forgot about xbox going down…and yes i spent many hours trying to figure out wat was wrong with my xbox…its times like these you need minties…random

  2. lol.. I can’t blame you. XBL does have a history of going down for no reason at all.

  3. THE WHOLE DAY!?!?!? Noooooo Θ_Θ

  4. what kind of sucks is that I can’t play my favorite XBLA games today. Whenever I am offline, I can only play games I purchased with my current console. This is one aspect of XBL that is really starting to piss me off. Microsoft claimed they were fixing it last year, but still nothing..

    It’s not my fault that my original 360 POS bricked on me, but now I only have access to numerous games I have purchased when I am online. I tend to wonder if this is even legal on their part, but who knows.

  5. no one ever claimed Microsoft was quality though. 🙂

    It’s a real shame the 360 has the best games. If they didn’t, I’d probably play the PS3 more often.

  6. Yeah, the whole “games working properly only
    when you’re online” thing sucks.

    I was playing Rock Band 2 the other day and
    at least half the songs I wanted to play didn’t
    work because I didn’t have the console con-
    nected.

  7. if you cant play downloads while offline because of a console change you will need to transfer your licences.. lookup license tranfer on xbox.com
