I thought just live was going to be down and the forums were going to be read only, but I can't get on xbox.com either.

From the home page:

Just firing a reminder out to everyone that in just under 2 hours (12:01am PST, 8:01am GMT) various aspects of the Xbox Live service will be down for up to 24 hours for maintenance.
So that means Xbox Live and the My Xbox area of Xbox.com will both be unavailable, whilst the Xbox.com forums will be read only. Who needs Xbox.com anyway when you have x360a. *wink wink* *nudge nudge*
With regard to what it is ... Major Nelson says "scheduled maintenance," but if you wanted to try and connect the dots further, the Zune service will also be down for the same period. Whether MS are doing all their spring cleaning together, who knows, but I would say, it doesn't take a genius to see what they're preparing for.
Weirdly enough as well, Twitter will be unaccessible for an hour of downtime from 2PM PST (10pm GMT) today. Please don't tell me that's coincidence too.
Notice I said preparing though, because Major points out that "you won’t see anything different on your console" when they fire the service back up on Wednesday.
Looks like offline achievement whoring today then if you need a gaming fix.

Yeah, xbox live and xbox.com are down for maintenance.

I'm getting a little testy tho..I figured they'd be back up by now. They said it would be down for 24 hours max...and its been about 22 hours already, hasn't it? I thought they took it offline last nite at like midnight...

Geeeze...I need my killing people fix!! Somehow killing AI isn't doing it for me!

If you guys are struggling without XBL I think it's an indicator that you play too much. And Live has only been down for 20 hours

22 and a half hours! lol and yes, this is ridiculous. I've been calling xbox.com all day and they're still not giving any definitive timelines. fags

Perhaps I can't count, but it went down at 3 Am EST. It is now 11:30 Am EST, which is 20.5 hours. And why are you wasting your time harassing them? Wait the full 24 hours, then if it's not back you have a right to harass them. Fuck, some people.

wow i can't beleive you actually called and harrassed them about it. Shit they gave us HEAPS of warning, and on top of that they told us 24hrs. So how about waiting that long before you start pissing them off.

Nah i wouldn't worry about it honestly. They will see that it was unlocked during the down period. They worry about when you unlock ONLINE achievments (like get 20 kills in a ranked match) when your offline, lol thats kind of the give away :P

It'll go back up as soon as live comes back online so I wouldn't worry :) My message was meant to be taken tongue in cheek :P

As DENAz666 said; You'll only ever get people suss if you unlock one of the online achievements offline. Even then some of them are available via system link so it is possible :)

God, did people not look at the Live Message?

Lol, I just had a rant about that here

I can't believe how serious people take unlocking an achievement offline. Some people go and visit family or go on vaction with their 360s and if they unlock an achievement offline they have a panic attack. I don't understand why someone would say your hacking/glitching achievements if you unlock a few SP achievements offline. Jesus I unlocked two achievements in ghostbusters will I get in trouble.

Yes you will get in trouble. Microsoft will ban your accounts, send you a chain letter and NOT pay you 10c for every person you forward it on to. Your controllers will melt, terminators will be sent back in time to bring you forward in time to kill the past version of yourself that travelled to the future set in the past with Michael J. Fox to find a Delorean...wait a min.

Furthermore any new account you create will automatically be subjected to a 48 hour period without any Xbox live access at all. From the looks of these forum topics I sure hope they have a straight jacket lined up for people :P

Lol, crazy isn't it?! Good source of a giggle tho. I can't believe how many people aren't coping with downtime. It's not like you can't play games or anything :S

I doubt it. Honestly I don't think anyone looks at the timestamp anyway. Also, if you're in a comp with friends then wouldn't they know you well enough not to accuse you of cheating?

Agreed, HI my name is Paul i am a liveaholic, i have no friends that live around me so i can only mainly talk to them through live and i can play at the same time. my statement is done. Nice to meet yall'

Lol, I love that. So much so that I've created a Liveaholics Unanonymous group for you all to join! Link is here
