    Hey all,

    I'm just wondering if XBOX LIVE is still down for maintenance. My friend keeps insisting that it is back up, but I still can't connect from my 360. So I'm wondering if he's just pulling my leg, or if my 360 is just being stupid, which is its' favorite pastime.

    Thanks,

    Don

    It's been down for over 10+ hours and the www.xbox.com website is also down.

    Thanks for the info. My friend is a total @ss. I haven't been able to get on since 1 AM yesterday. I thought they said that it would be down for 24 hours at most?

    I know, it totally sucks. I've played through COD: WaW's campaign twice today, and Halo 3's campaign once.

    MSFT has even said that there won't be any new features. You would think that they would have a backup server cluster to use for LIVE during system maintenance.

    Problem could be coming if the stuff they are doing is a lot of back end updates. During that time you can not use you back up servers but have to do it all in 1 go. From what I reading it is a lot to do with prepping for the next release. So they are getting all that stuff lined up in the servers before hand. More than likely it will go down again during the next major update for the 360s.

    I didn't even think of that. Duh. I still wish that they would hurry up. I have a clan match setup for 8:00 AM. This was supposed to be over at midnight.
