Yup, Live seems to be down as well as Hotmail :suicide:

If you test your connection there's a message confirming they are aware of the issue.

Yeah your right cant get online on 360 or xbox.com, was there any mention of downtime? usually get a live msg about that tho.
I never have probs signing in so gotta be down for time being. Strange.

Damn i missed it, i never get signed out :rotfl:
Ah will be back up in no time, hardly ever goes offline with no warning, tho was baout 45 mins ago i wentv to click xbox.com and says "servers too busy" so must have built up from that.
My bet is it'll be back up before 12:30 :smashin:

You can now get on xbox.com homepage but it just says
The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.

I would of thought MS would of posted a notice somewhere online advising of the downtime and details. Granted they put a notice on the test connection screen but as I pay for a service I feel this is not good enough.

Google confirms that the problem is worldwide and the forums are filling with deprived gamers seeking a kill fix. When I attempted to login into XBL website this morning I got a blank page with server unavailable. When I tried a minute ago I got the same message but with all the MS banners which makes me think they have corrected several of the issues.

Oh well better find a job or do some house work :boring:

It depends if the downtime was planned or not. Because M$ usually post when there is big downtime thats why IMO i think this wasnt planned.

Must have been a unexpected problem, they always send u a xbox live msg if downtime is gonna happen for whateva reason.
This never happens out the blue so unless its a long downtime there's nothing really to moan about at the mo, things happen.

I bet the new developers / community games section made it crash. Some other sepulation ive read goes on about this 1 vs 100 game they will shortly be uploading to XBL.

Come on MS Ctrl Alt Del and lets get it back up and running. I've got to give my friends xbox back today so want to get a couple of hours in. Good news tho my 360 has been repired and getting shipped back to me free of charge.
