It's just happened. :(

A moment of silence everyone, please. :p
While we wait the arrival of our new hidden scripts. :drunk They've said it's only to prepare for the new XBL experience, think they'll throw it to us early? :D "We'll be back soon with amazing new My Xbox features!"
Sorry for spelling Maintenance wrong in the title.

Shit! Right when I was planning an all nighter before class tomorrow, ah well. I might get something productive done, or I might just get on WoW :/

And now I can't do the last 8 CPs on Rainbow Six 1, because I don't want "Rainbow Six Legend" being unlocked offline. :(

Ah well, I guess I'll finally have an excuse to do all the easy games that have been incomplete forever. MLB and NHL 2k6, here I come. \o/

I didn't plan to get any achievements well it was down. Always afraid something will go wrong and I will lose those achievements. Well Live went down well I was playing an offline game of NHL 2k9. Wouldn't you know it was my 15th win. Just my luck.

That's partially why I don't unlock anything big offline, but I also like to have a date to "prove" it was legit. I got Psych Out in Crackdown offline over a year ago and it still bugs me. :(

Made that mistake as a Live noob when I first got the 360. It's the reason my Need For Speed-Most Wanted is all out of order.

I have a 1 point achievement that bugs me. Got the achievement for finishing Buller Witch on the hardest difficulty offline. Was playing it at work (ya I got a pretty good job:p) and was just going to play up until the final boss. When I got there I figured I would never beat him on the first try. I did.

09-29-2008, 07:51 AM
I'll probably play my GRAW2 campaign finally. I don't mind the offline achievements, seeing as how that's how all of my achievements were for 2006, before I moved into town and was able to get high speed internet.

Disconnected me tonight right as I was about to get a triple kill with the boomshot in Gears :(

09-29-2008, 08:20 AM
I got disconnected at about 2:08 Central time. I was playing halo 3, and I was 7-0 in Social Slayer. I was having a great game, my team was winning by a huge margin, and - BOOM - LIVE went down for maintenance. I had forgotten all about it. I should have known a game like that was too good to be true.

On xbox.com, on the support page, it says this: "
As we gear up to bring you the New Xbox Experience, Xbox LIVE and the Xbox LIVE page on Xbox.com will be down for 24 hours, beginning on September 29, 2008 from 12:01 AM PST until 11:59 PM PST. During this time you will not be able to access Xbox LIVE."


24 hours is a long time without LIVE! I didn't realize it was going to be down for that long. I actually have to get out of my house for once, hahaha. And, PST, what is that? Where I live, it's Central time. When is this thing over for me?

Funnily enough, i knew they were bringing the servers down and yet, today is the day i actually felt like playing some serious Halo 3 online (barely played over the weekend) and now i can't. :)

24 hours is a long wait.

Yeah they give you the correct GS - just won't update to LIVE until you next login. Saves them to your profile on your hard drive though.

wow you sad, we all no it because they sent everyone a messege i dumbass.

And whats the problem geting them offline it dosent matter it just achievements it will still say you have it people wont be that said and go on xbox.com to to see if you got it online and they better give up something for this update because its 24 hour off my live wasted they just give us a new arcade game for free or something like undertow.

This really isn't a big deal, I can just work on my offline stuff. I would rather MS do little things here and there than all at once and risk rroding my console

Gorjira
09-29-2008, 06:56 PM
Yeah, there giving us a new dashboard.

Thats not the point. People have paid to be GOLD, and we are missing a day of what we paid for for some update. Sure, the dashboard will come along and all will be forgiven, but people dont want to waste their money. One day out of a month's gold is a small gap, but a gap nonetheless.

Blind x360a
09-29-2008, 07:23 PM
Dude, it turns out to be less then a dollar for it being down today. You expect an arcade when they are doing something for us? :/

Anyway,

When the update does come out will it be another day down or just a normal update?

It kind of sucks because every Monday we get out 40 minutes early. This is the only time in which it sucks getting out early.

Now to go drive aimlessly around.

No dont worry i'll leave that to another day, been messing about on photoshop, anything to keep my mind off the lack of xbox live.

its like a relationship, you only realise how much it meant until its gone, oh well its back tomorrow YAY :)

09-29-2008, 09:48 PM
Will someone else please try to connect to live and see what happens? It is saying my MTU is failing. Is it like that for anyone else. I'm just worried that it might be my 360 (it does get red ring 3 times a day, and has been freezing up recently.)

Someone please try to connect to live and test your connection and tell me if your MTU fails.

Hopefully they'll surprise us with a brand new dashboard update. I mean, they did promise to deliver a new one every fall/spring, and conveniently skipped this years spring update to focus on the fall; so you would think a nice little gift would be in order.

JUST SAYIN'!

No, it was like that 5 minutes after it went down. I remember thinking "why have the forum up if you can't even log-in, retards." It's only for viewing apparently.

Unfortunately I think she's right....unfortunate because it seems like:
A. that's a lot of time to be down just to update the backend, and
B. it's taking forever to get all those new goodies here. I want 8 person chat.

Supposedly it's just updating the infrastructure to handle the new update, which will be here "the holiday season."

Well actually, technically you see an uprising every time you play. See, we all start as girls. Then some magic things happen as our genes differentiate whether we'll be a boy or girl. If its a boy, the ovaries start to shrink, the rest of the scrotum develops, and when you hit 13 your voice starts to crack and the ovaries drop. Oh, yeah, your balls are ovaries btw.

Crystic, have all 39 of your posts been on this thread lol
Sadly, no. I used to post on here a lot but then I got the banhammer. Made a new account and pretty much kept to myself.

Say, Crystic, how'd you get banned? If it's a long story, we've got time.

Don't worry about.

They don't look like Bungie mods. Maybe they work for Macrohard?

Did this guy just seriously state that he has been banned at one point on x360a? what is he thinking ha now he is going to be banned again.

The thing we should worry about is if we can start playing anytime soon.

idk, maybe... they say that doing this now will help them update easier later on.

I think they just wanted free bandwidth so they can enjoy a big online office LAN party :-p
