Xbox LIVE Downtime Alert!


For 24 hours starting 9am [10am CET] on September 29th youíll notice that your Xbox LIVE (http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/live/) service is temporarily unavailable. This is, in fact, terrific news!
This particular Xbox LIVE (http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/live/) downtime is especially important because it will ready the Xbox LIVE (http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/live/) network for the arrival of the New Xbox Experience later this year Ė an amazing free update that will change the way you enjoy Xbox 360 entertainment forever. Think of it as the first tremor before the earthshattering arrival of something extraordinary!
Very soon the New Xbox Experience will transform your Xbox 360 into a limitless world of home entertainment in which the best games, movies and TV shows live side by side with your personal pictures and music library. Everything you enjoy about your Xbox 360 can be shared at any time with friends via Xbox LIVE (http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/live/) using cool customisable animated Avatars.
So remember, Xbox LIVE will be unavailable from 9am [10am CET] on September 29th for 24 hours. You wonít see the New Xbox Experience when LIVE comes back online, but you will be all ready to receive it when it launches later this year.
Itís proof that good things come to those who wait!

Ghay. Didn't they already do an update? I remember getting a console update but it's really annoying if they are doing another one.

Yeah, it's in the right place.

As long as the new dashboard comes soon after I won't be bothered. But if we still have to wait until december, I'll be kind of annoyed.

They do one just about every season or so. It's not that horrendous, dude. Just find something else to do for 24 hours. Chill.

Well, that's annoying.
My Xbox just RRODed and the only way I can play my DLC is by connecting to Live on a different Xbox.

I am in no hurry to get the new update for the new look dashboard as it looks like its going down the road of being more pleasing to kids who are damn irritating on live.

If we wanted something with gawky little kiddie avatars we would have bought a bloody wii.

Depressing.

24 hours is quite a long time, at least I will be at school for most of the time. :)

The Update still won't be out for at least another month, this update is just prep work.

But the update brings good news, and 24 hours isn't that bad seeing in how I might be busy anyway :D

It is nice to see I'm not the only one not really looking forward to the update. I already own a Wii, I really don't need another one.

It's not a console update... they're shutting down the network to upgrade it on THEIR end for the "New Xbox Experience".

As for it being down for 24 hours... BOO FRIGGIN' HOO! Seriously. It's a day. Play offline.

out for 24hrs, they must be going to do some major tinkering under the bonnet for it to out for that length of time. Still that should give me time to grind through the rest of Kanes Challenges on C&C3 Kanes Wrath.

This is bullshit, I'm paying them money to provide me with a service they shouldn't just take it offline without some form of compensation. The fact I don't play online all that much is beside the point.

It's. One. Day. PM me your address and I promise you I will mail you 14 cents.

So I suppose when you next have a power cut you'll be writing to the electricity supplier to ask for a refund of that time?

It's one day, it's to make improvements. It's a good thing.

It's the principle of it though, if I don't pay my bill for a day they're not going to turn round and say "Oh that's alright, have it on us". It's a service that should be free anyway in my view, so I sure as hell expect it when I'm paying for it. Also, what's 14 cents multiplied by however many subscribers they have?

Spastic comment. When I'm not using electricity I'm not paying for it, hope this helps.

One day on my money. And I'm perfectly happy with it as it is to be honest.

And what does the number of subscribers mean when most probably wouldn't be too concerned with the service being down for 24 hours?

Again. I'm more than happy to cover you so you can get through the day. ;)

It's a service that should be free anyway in my view

Well there we go. Actually I'll take back my offer then because you already feel you're not getting your value from the Live membership. Of course you're going to be over the top dramatic about the service being unavailable for even 1 day. :rolleyes:

does anyone know if its the new dashboard or there just getting prepared for it?

Why is this a big deal for people? Do you have any idea how global networks and online services like this work? It's a neccessary downtime which will be used to 'build the foundations' in prep for the new dashboard, which from what i've seen will be much easier to use (and i'm not talkin about the the 'wii mii' things) - so stop complaining so much :)

Also, as a side-note - this isn't actually the implementation of the dashboard - take a look at 'Inside XBOX' for the full news feature explaining this. It is, in fact, the first of two updates so the dashboard won't be in place until the second update.

"and (c) upgrade, modify, withdraw, suspend, or discontinue any functionality or feature of the Service or any game from time to time without notice"

least they're warning us.
