Xbox Live is having a service outage at the moment, affecting an unknown number of players - including LevelSave.com's Xbox 360 Editor, Austin Griffith.
Yeh just tried to sign in and it failed. Ran a connection test and it signed me in with a service alert :/
Yeah, me too but after about 3 minutes I'm back to netflix...
yup. I was disconnected and then 5 minutes later was back on. However it was a bit of an annoyance. I was down 4-0 in MLB 2K12 and came back to 4-6, no outs, man on 3rd and in the bottom of the 7th inning....then BAM. Disconnected from XBL. NOOOO!!!! I was pissed. So I put NBA 2K13 in and 5 min later XBL was back up. Oh well.
You get what you paid for right... I just hope they don't blame this on Amazon cloud like Netflix did a few weeks ago.
yeah man, dat 20 minutes was dreadful
It was down 5 min..... How long was PSN down last month? 3 DAYS!!!! Ya you get what you pay for.
I was affected! I was playing Tales of Vesperia and talking to friends in a party and then I got disconnected D: Looked online and found out it was a service alert
I can connect, but cant play BF3. Can play the Crysis 3 beta though. I'm getting sick of this to be honest. I've benn and XBL member for 5 years and this has been happening weekly for a while now. I pay 60 a year for what, to be disconnected from the service once a week? i wont stand for that much longer. I guess its time to start saving up for a PC... And no, I'm not trolling. my GT is SignifiedSix. been a member forever!
Don't LIE dude, it hasn't been happening on weekly basis! You sound like someone who read an earlier article about how great the PS+ service was and came in here to talk shit bout LIVE . Trollingass fool.. sound like the person who farts and is the 1st to point out it wasn't them. Shitting all over yourself and shit. I'm not a troll, I'm just saying. @calis, wow I'm amazed! How the hell you know I was Bipolar dude!! Its not easy dealing with it, but fuck it!!
You may not be a troll but based on what you wrote, you may have mental problems.
The Battlefield 3 servers for PS3 and 360 were taken down for around 8 hours today.
Buy a PS3 and get PS+.
Yeah.....this article is old now eh.
My ps3 last week.. Now this..... 2013 is looking bad connection wise.
more like xbox dead
30 minutes down? And we get an article? WOW! I wonder what would happen if an online service was down for 30 days... ... :)
Never went down for me and I was on the new COD maps most of the night. Weird
Oh yep? When did this happen? Cos I've been online for the past 2 - 3 hours without any trouble.
That shouldn't happen for a paid service. What is all that money going to? Early DLC and demos?
Oh what? The phone service and internet has gone down. That shouldn't happen with a paid service. What is all that money going to? See your logic? It's broken.
I am sick of XBL, whenever new update came for any game my Xbox start giving me errors, It completed after so many random connection test, change connection type. Its not about 30 min or day long Server down issue now its become habit. Yesterday I spend my more than 3 hours then BO2 Revolution DLC start downloading. When u contact the CC they said exact same thing what u find on this support page.
holy crap, one day the XBL has a few issues and everyone is going nuts. I’m just glad it was XBL and not my xbox. at least its fixed within 24 hours, instead of a month. just saying.
