Xbox LIVE cloud saves and marketplace having issues for second weekend in a row

XMNR: The Xbox 360 is having problems with the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and the Xbox LIVE cloud saved games once again. Both services went down Friday night following a similar outage last week. (Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE)

But, but everybody in a computer industry are saying cloud is the future.... :P

It could be a part of the future just because they have issues don't mean something want be great. The thing that makes me mad is we pay for Xbox Live while every other service is free then they have issues and on top of that we have ads everywhere. It's stupid.

If there any problems i'm sure they MS will fix it pronto. That's one thing they do well. When problems arise they are rectified pretty fast. You can't afford not to when this affects gold members.

That's why I refuse to pay for XBL. I WILL NOT pay to use features that are free EVERYWHERE else.

I've been using the 360 a lot this week, and its one things I noticed. You pay for the console AND Xbox Live and they still have ads all over the OS? Why?

I mean if it were relevant games then fine, but its not. Its McDonalds, Army, and some other crap I didn't pay attention to.

StrongMan- The funny part is if you have your save game on your HDD you have no problem. This only affects the games you saved onto Cloud...since it's having problems all you have to do is change games and wait it out.

You and all the sonyfanboys act like the sky is falling every time something like this happens it's actually funny reading comments like these.

I've not had a single problem these past two weekends and they gave me one whole month free so I go ahead and freak out hell tell everyone to freak out so I can get another month free.

To use cloud saves on ps3 you have to pay the same price as xbl gold...

The cloud saves are saved to your hard drive first and synced to the cloud. If you didn't move to a new console, the saves are still accessible. Just copy it to your hard drive, use it, then copy it back and it will sync to your cloud.

Problem solved for the few it affects. That said, before the news actually made anywhere it is back up!

Nothing to see, move on people.

@Marcus - In real life no technology works perfect.

I pay for internet and sometimes its very slow or does not work at all.

I pay for Dish and some times my channels or signal does not work.

I bought a Iphone 5 and a week later the CAMERA stopped working so they replaced with a new one.

Just you pay for something that does mean that it will be 100% fine all the time.

The difference is being able to fix it in 24 hrs vs a week - if MS went down for a week or a month then you can complain.

Alot of things a life are free and cheaper but does that mean that its better?

I can get free Wifi outside or go to the library to use the internet instead of paying a month;y fee.

I can get free coffee from those free addiction meetings or get for a $1 at Burger King but I like to buy my coffee from StarBucks.

I can get free food from a homeless shelter but I go to resturants and pay instead

i can get free shoes and stuff to wear from the Salvation Army or Red Cross but I go to the mall instead.

Because segments of the industry, the same ones looking to do away with used games and require constant online, are insisting that it is?

lol never had this problem on steam and it's free! :)
nukeitall  +   600d ago
That is because when problems do occur it affects a minority, and you don't have a place to find out if it does on Steam or other networks such as Nintendo Network or PSN.

MS reports problems so users have a place to go for status updates, but some sites use it as "news".

I never had a single problem on either the supposed problem weekend or today.

steam actually has a pretty vibrant and vocal community from what i understand though.

when something goes wrong with steam, people usually hear about it.

and ms has a history of denying problems, or blaming the users.
Kamikaze135  +   600d ago
It is. Works great on PC and the PS3. It just sucks on the 360 for some reason.
GraveLord  +   599d ago
It is, just on Microsofts crappy servers. Which his funny because people are paying for this crap.
MikeMyers  +   599d ago
So dazzrazz, you don't think being able to access your game saves from the cloud isn't the future? You think back in the old days where if your system broke (or old cartridges broke) and you could no longer get back your saves, that was better? Funny enough is you can save to the hard drive and to the cloud. Welcome to the future.

Microsoft seems to have problems every Christmas or so. Do they have a lot of people take vacation so they don't have enough people watching their network?

MS is a software company and they get payed for xblg so what gives? *runs for cover*

Because of the coward block.
Nice, a sure sign of a hypocrite and a coward. Argument gets heated, your side not holding up well. You're starting to be proved wrong, so you hide. Nice tactic son. and BTW
it is sad, and I was trying to be civil in that conversation, yet here you come,out of the blue you pop, to keep me in line. And you talk about how sad anyone else is? I think you can get more of that then you could handle in the mirror. Keep ignoring YOU problems and they should go away as long as you keep pointing you finger enough.

Sorry everyone for the off topic response, I was just in the middle of something when insom, wanted to go hide like a scared little girl, when I wasn't done.

I saved my brother duke nukem forever in cloud, and moved it to another console yet he still had to start off at the beginning again. That was after I managed to get it to stop saying 'syncing'. More like the service was 'sinking'........... ahem.

I suppose this was part of this problem?? Man having to replay that Duke nukem game must have been painful.

you could say he had... a synching feeling. ^_^
