What is the point in today, if we're not getting the new dashboard? I know its going to help towards it, but is there many facts? What are they doing, that takes a day to..Do what ever it is they do?

Searched, and could not find anything. If someone could link me, I'd appreciate it:)

Just need some light on this subject, I feel like Im sitting in the dark.

Yeah pretty much what SuperNova said, alot of people are saying it's supposed to be preparation for the New Xbox dashboard, somehow getting ready for it. But earlier today when I went to Xbox.com it said something like "Xbox Live is down for maintenence, we will be back up shortly with new Xbox Features" or something like that, not exact wording so don't quote me on it.

When I go on Xbox.com, it just says:
Xbox.com and the Xbox LiveŽ service are currently down for maintenance.

They're updating something so we can get the new dashboard, but I don't think we get it until Christmas Day.

I think we'll get it before then. I'm guessing late November, early December.

I was thinking the same thing but i really doubt they would ever do that but it would be awsome

We don't know when the update is, so it could be tomorrow. Let's just wait and see...

Yeah, they just call it the 'Fall Update'. December would be winter, so it can't be that late into 2008. Fall is usually taken to be anywhere between late Aug./early Sept. to mid/late Nov. I just hope they have the new updates before Gears of War 2 hits the streets, multi-user private chat ftmfw.

Of course we do...

Anyway back to topic, i think they are setting up new servers to avoid what happened last time during the holiday season.

Long story short, Live was pretty much FUBAR last year. Women were weeping, children were screaming, and men gnashing their teeth. If I were to describe to you what happened, you would flee from this room in terror!!!

Thankfully, I had a spoon.....;)

I really don't know what they are doing. The new dashboard and the whole avatar thing looks lame. I do like the idea that achievements unlock new stuff for your avatar *cough* Mii *cough* ahem. Oh BTW I love your gif of Michael Phelps. It made me laugh.

If this prep update takes a day, then be glad because MS could have incorporated this along with the actual update then where'd be we? I'll take a day's downtime here than two lumped together.

Just my best guess though.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That is the funniest thing I've heard today!

Anyways, I hope the fall update isn't being released tomorrow because I hate the look of the new dashboard, they should keep things the way they are, or atleast give us the option of using whichever dashboard we prefer.

You make it sound like Nintendo didn't rip anyone off either, they didn't invent avatars.

And the dashboard update will be like every other update we have, not downtime. When the new update comes out it will be like when you update a game with a new patch.

I noticed in your sig, that you got 10k in 1990
10k - 29/09/1990
15k - ?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Do you mind telling me where you got your 360 back in 1990? cuz I really missed out on that. :)


For today, I think the update is to just clear it and add some stuff, so they don't have what they did in the past with live being down and how much complaints they got, remember they had to give us a free game cuz of that.

Would you rather it came up tomorrow with the new dash and then something went wrong and you lose everything you've worked for in your games in an instant? No, you wouldn't. Don't be so fucking thick in the future, the point is they are actually taking their time for once so they dont cock it up - NXE is a big step forward and care seems to have been taken to make sure it goes smoothly. So, on that note, stop questioning them.

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. ) -.- Is what it says, i just hope them shutting it down for two days is worth it if not then i know alot of people will be ticked.

This was my thought as well. I'm sure the whole process might have taken a couple of days so I was thinking they might just be laying some of the ground work now and when the update is ready to roll they won't have too many problems getting it up and running.

Are you thick as well? How is it 2 days? 12:01AM PST was midnight, while everyone should have been asleep and it comes back on 11:59PM PST. a full 24 hours.

And last I checked... 24 hours = 1 day. Or is 11.59PM past your bedtime?

Actually this came from the main site, so if anyone is thick its that. Cause it started at midnight on the 27th making it the 28 and now it is the 29 and it is still offline. And if you dont believe me here is the proof. http://www.xbox.com/en-us/support/

The problem xbox had at christmas was severe lag due to EVERYONE getting a 360 for Xmas and the servers coudlnt cope with everyone playing at the same time. So we got constantly kicked or really bad lag it was horrible i belive thats the time they gave us the free XBLA game to compensate

Yeah, a really shit one at that too. Undertow. Pfft.

And I find it really pathetic that a lot of you can't live without Xbox Live for one whole day.

Watch TV, go outside, do homework, catch up on house work, learn to play an instrument. Damn.... who cares if they were a bit late in getting XBL back up.
