Xbox Live Service Maintenance

 

On Tuesday, June 16th from 7:01AM UTC (12:01 AM PST) for up to 24 hours, Xbox Live will be offline for maintenance. As a result, Xbox LIVE and 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 with limited interruptions.

This service maintenance is to prepare for some of the recently announced features that will be available later this year.

Let me reiterate: When the service returns, you will not have any new functions or features. This is for scheduled maintenance only.

    Good point as that was one of my many questions BEFORE NXE. Well, Xbox Live Service Maintenance is needed and I’m glad it is on a work day for me. If it were on a day (like Sat, Sun or a holiday none work day), THEN it would be a bad thing. Netflix can be seen on your PC along with Hulu. The only REAL thing that bites is dates on your achievements gained ‘offline’.

    Can I get the time I ‘wasted’ at a broken stop light? . . . . .(sigh)

    Just in case any one missed it. This is video proof of the Xbox Guide lag.

    Last time they did this in Septemeber 2008, my Xbox got faster and especially the performance of live. I hope it does this time too. Oh and some of the features announced are coming this August like Avatar marketplace,music marketplace, games on demand, 1 vs 100 and probably guide lag fixes. Was said so by Notwen.

    Maintenance is no biggie. Only bummer is I can’t play my arcade games, or DLC, since I’m on my 10th console, and I already did the DRM transfer, so no dice. Ah well. Small inconvenience, I probably won’t even be able to play that day anyways. Hope the maintenace results in some big service and guide improvements down the road. I would put up with a week’s interruption in service if it did that.

    @ Surly x Duff: Have you tried just manually re-downloading the licenses for your Arcade games and DLC individually? That’s what I did after I got my replacement console, since I don’t trust them to do the DRM transfer at the service center. After doing that, I haven’t had any problems playing my Arcade games and DLC offline.

    @K1LLER HORNET – what benefits do I get for having my Xbox 360 connected to the internet if I am not using any of the online features? I really don’t understand how you consider what I am doing “stupid.”

    The way I see it, I don’t have anything to loose by keeping the console disconnected.

    I’ve never noticed any lag on the dashboard for me. Maybe it has to do with older 360’s vs. newer 360’s or maybe many people don’t know how to clear their cache? Not sure and I know it probably isn’t fun experiencing this.

    @ RiotGrrl1988: Clearing the cache only gives you a brief decrease in lag, if at all.

    maybe to keep your games updated? title updates?

    do you seriously not use the inside XBOX feature? it’s really good.

    I guess I don’t think of title updates. I usually watch out for when they come along so I can update. I may have missed a few, but I also haven’t gotten any new titles for Xbox 360 since December last year, so most of my games are probably up-to-date.

    No. I don’t use the inside Xbox feature. Not since shortly after the NXE was deployed. I didn’t use it that much before then either.

    Xbox Live Maintenance = Service of Xbox Live Down
    Test all of of your arcade games you might be playing during this downtime and make sure they work offline (without being connected to Xbox Live). This will eliminate any headache in that area.

    Now’s a good time to hit up your favorite gaming forum (besides here) and open of your ‘contacts’ to continue to talk to friends from Xbox Live. (it’s only a day sheesh)

    Look at it as improving on what we already have.

    Happy Xbox Live Down for Maintenance Day
