Reminder: Xbox Live Maintenance on Tuesday

 

One last reminder that on Tuesday, June 16th starting at 12:01AM PST Xbox Live will be offline for up to 24 hours while we perform scheduled maintenance.  During this time Xbox Live and the ‘My Xbox’ section of Xbox.com will be unavailable, and the Xbox.com forums will be read-only.  The rest of Xbox.com will be available with limited interruptions.

 

When we turn the service back on you won’t see anything different on your console.

 

I know that Litheon and others will be hanging out here in the Chat and I’ll try and drop in every once in a while.  You’ll also be able to find me and a couple of my co-workers at the new Xbox Live Operations Blog.

 

Trixie and the community have gotten together to suggest a few things to keep you busy while we’re busy – check it out.

 

EDIT: Maintenance is now underway.

EDIT part deux: We’re back!  Thanks for your patience.  We’re not quite ready to pack it in yet so I’ll try and say a few more things before calling it a night.

    Is anyone else experiencing their xbox freeze on the dashboard at random times? The xbox has not fully crashed as I could still talk in party chat to some friends but the xbox is unresponsive to the joypad and wont do anything until i switch it off. I thought it might be the xbox playing up, but my brother and a friend had the exact same problem earlier on.

    hey Mr e,i know this may be a problem to be fixed for another day,but on xbox.com,my xbox page how come we can only compare games with the first 3 friends who’s avatars are showing when they are online?

    like when we look at a friend on our list from ‘xbox.com>>my xbox page>>friends’ who hasn’t been online for 2 days,we can’t compare games…how come?,there is no option,only on those who’s avatars are showing

    Install the Adblock Plus addon for Firefox and you won’t have to worry about advertisements/banners again.

    oh look at some of the comments from the douchebags that said this maintenance has nothing to do with the dashboard when the dashboard freezes for a few seconds when looking in parties and backing out?

    and i dare someone say its my 360 when its not since my sh*t is 2 days old. stop riding microsoft’s stick so much and you wouldn’t be so much as drones, sucking up to every announcement they make.

    I just noticed that I can’t view friend’s achievements anymore through xbox.com.. the compare link is gone and clicking through shows my own. Was this removed on purpose? Seems odd that achievements are private now..
