Are there any problems with downloading from the marketplace? I was going to go on and download today's arcade game but I'll skip it for now if it's just going to have errors while downloading it.

I like how some people just play it off.
We're all paying customers and we should get the service we pay for. Remember the last update and how much trouble they had with Live? I thought this was a GeOW patch. Instead I can't play Splinter Cell: DA online and I was looking forward to another 4am Gears online.
Not only that, at the time this occurred my friend thought his girlfriend corrupted his entire HDD because he couldn't play certain games on single player. He flipped out.. long story short their relationship was almost split over a gaming console. And no, I am not making this up.

I am sick of Microsoft acting like they are giving us Xbox Live. We are paying for you to say "We know." I am going to ask for some "free" service next time this happens. Hell, I've paid for enough "outages" that a "free" year shouldn't hurt Micro$oft's profits. I am sick of seeing Microsoft acting like Xbox Live is free. I pay my hard earned money to play online through your service and when it goes down I want a refund. I say Microsoft gives all Xbox Live members a "free" year because of outages.

I told my girlfriend I would break up with her if she deleted my HDD.
She was not too pleased I can tell you.

My girlfriend threated to sell my 360 while I was at work, "accidentally" run it over (how did it get outside on the ground again) and numerous other things. I said the same thing though.

Aside from that, why are you guys complaining so much? You guys are freaking out because 10 days out of the last 365 have been down (please don't flame me for poor numbers if those are off, that isn't the point) Personally I can't think of a better way to spend $50 for a year (excuse me, 355 days since they love to steal my money *sarcasm*) of fun with friends from all over the world.

It's not like this was a planned Live outage to screw all you over. I'll quote a line from one of my favorite movies, "Shit happens".

What am I missing? How does a Live problem stop you playing single player games?

i dont see how a live problem causes anyone to stop playing single player but y the heck is everyone so mad at microsoft. we pay only $50 a year. that's dirt cheap. how much do you pay for other live services. you pay much more for a porn subscription and not have as much fun. but im happy with the service. a couple of days out of a year is no sweat of my back since im usually playing all year long and if we didnt pay $50 for it imagine how many jerks and spammers would be online. now gamers think twice before screwing. up cuz no one wants their account with all their hard earned achievements deleted.

Its actually not really that Cheap, they dont really have to do THAT much for the amount of money they get paid.
And remember, we're hardcore fans and pay for the year, but a lot of people pay month by month...

If 100,000 people paid $50 for a year, that'd be $5,000,000 a year for Microsoft, and more people pay, and a lot pay more than $5 a month...


Nontheless, I dont care...
Is Xbox Live Up Again?

well most single player games are linked to the internet somewhat, im sure if you unplugged your ethernet coard it work great.

True. However, similar services provided by other companies that aren't nearly as robust as Live cost more. The Sony Station Pass that lets you play Everquest, EQ2, Planetside and a couple other things can be roughly compared to Live and it is $20 + taxes,etc per month. Granted, that's a pass to a bunch of subscription games, but the parallels are there.

But yeah, is it back or what? I was going to pop in to FFXI tonight with some friends, but I don't want to pick up the game if Live is dead. Especially when there are still songs to be 5-starred in Guitar Hero 2...

You know, I have no idea what any of you are talking about. I got online last night around 5PM PST, downloaded New Rally-X, and then played FFXI til 11PM. Was I mysteriously lucky, or did the outage only affect certain parts of the country.

If you can't stand losing a day of XBL, feel free to buy yourself a PS3.

It didn't affect me at all, so someone out there is over reacting or I have the luck of the Irish and live in a nirvana of XBL goodness (which I don't)

I had a friend calling me last night in a panic over it. It was hilarious. He was about to kill his 360 and I didn't know what to tell him. I was playing Franchise mode for Madden and had no clue it was going on. I feel bad for everyone who didn't get to play last night because of this, but I was laughing my :assoff when I found out this is why he couldn't play.
