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.

    So here’s a problem I have with this. Netflix streaming is dependent upon you being a Gold subscriber. So I won’t be able to stream Netflix while Live is down, correct? Same thing will be the case with the other services being added, like Last.fm. Perhaps these features need to work like premium content. They should be linked to my gamertag and to my console so that I can use them even if Live is down.

    Long time without maintenance.. I guess it’s time. Just hoping that things will go smooth this time.. but the records show me otherwise.😦

    If this speeds up the dashboard and overall makes Live a more pleasent experience, then more power to this! It would be nice to use the dash board without 15-30 second loads or having the system freeze up completely.

    A scheduled maintenance is better than unscheduled problems we have every day. So hopefully everything will get better after it and HOPEFULLY LIVE WILL BE down fpr 24 hours and not 2-3 days like the last time.

    Details for this week’s XBLA games from AceyBongos: “6 classic SEGA games hitting LIVE Arcade tom: Altered Beast, Phantasy Star II, Comix Zone, Shinobi, Sonic 3 and Gunstar Heroes. 400MSP each” http://twitter.com/AceyBongos/status/2089510746
    As far as the first five go, I’d suggest just saving your money and getting Sonic’s UGC instead, since all of those games are on it plus a LOT more and it would be cheaper. As for Gunstar Heroes, it’s definitely worth the 400 points! I already have it from the Wii VC, but since it’s not on Sonic’s UGC and this version is going to have achievements AND online co-op, I’ll probably get it again.
    If it’s the achievements that you really want though, then I guess it’d be worth it to get all of them. However the only other games that have online co-op are Altered Beast and Sonic 3. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/calendar/default.htm

    When will we actually get an update? The laggy guide is unbelievably slow. Want proof? Heres my own personal footage to prove it.

    Dude thanks for making that video Arsenic13. Please Major look at the video because mine is like that to. This needs fixing.
    I do have a question. To the ones that have this problem do you have a HDD that is almost full? I was wondering because I have a 120GB HDD that has about 20GB left. My two friends that have a 20GB dont have this problem and they both dont use there HDD to much.
    I am wondering if loading all my games on mine has made it slow. When the NXE came out it was fine for weeks until I started adding all my games to the HDD.
    Just a idea.

    No yolarrydabomb, I seriously doubt it’s his internet that’s causing the lag problem. I have the same problem with mine too as have many others on here and other xbox communities (although mine isn’t quite as bad as Arsenic13’s).

    @ bUbbALoUmCc: Yeah I’m in the same situation. I have an Elite with about 10GB left on my 120GB HDD after installing games on it, but my lag still isn’t quite as bad as Arsenic13’s. So to Arsenic13, what was the state of your system and HDD when you shot that video?

    Are we complaining or giving suggestions? IF we are giving suggestions, I’d like it if I am playing a game of Too Human, I can talk to my co-op partner, okay, my SFIV friends are having a party, I can excuse myself and go to the Party Chat and alternate between the PARTY CHAT and the GAME CHAT CHANNELS, and hold for a moment, Private Chat request, a friend needs help with a game and it is best I chat with him and not text message. My previous experience had my Private Chat canceled out by the Party Chat after a few moments. Sounds complicated, but it is not. No rush to fix it, but an issue that should be addressed eventually.
