Everyone on LIVE was sent a system message about this last week, but it’s worth a reminder:
On Monday September 10th from 0200-0600 PT (0900–1300 GMT) Xbox Live will be offline for scheduled maintenance. As a result, the ‘My Xbox’ section of Xbox.com will be unavailable, and the Xbox forums will be in read only mode (you won’t be able to post.) The remainder of Xbox.com will be available.
There are no new features that will appear when the service comes back online (i.e. there will not be a dashboard update waiting for you.) Everything should be back online and ready to go by 1pm GMT.
This is scheduled maintenance only. After all we need to get ready for H3, right?
(Sorry, I can’t tell you when the next dash update will hit or what is in it)
Edit: The maintenance was completed on time. There are a few small issues that the engineers are working that will be cleared up shortly.
Edit #2: A small number of people are having issues with incorrect NAT type detection. The team is aware and working hard to resolve it as quickly as possible.
Edit:#3: Ok folks, please go to System Blade->Network Settings and run the TEST XBOX LIVE CONNECTION test. You should have accurate results now. Please let me know if you don’t. Update: The engineers are still working on it…thanks for your patience.
Edit#4: I am updating my Twitter site with details…keep an eye on that.
Looks like all is fixed. Thanks for everyone’s patience
