If you’ve loaded up your Xbox 360 today, you may have noticed something odd… games aren’t loading and several areas of Xbox Live are completely unavailable.
Working fine in my area ( GTA, Canada)
"A lot of these game loading troubles seem to have been caused by the dashboard beta update that was released late last night." - Did you download the update?
yes. the author (and others) should put their regions as well as whether they can log in or not so we can know which members might have trouble or not
I'm in the southeastern US. and NO I didn't get the beta or d/l any thing new.
Good. I was worried for a sec. Holla from Oakville!

Yup...you are correct. Went back and refreshed and see the service alert.
I don't trust those status cuz there's been times when xbox live had issues but the status said it was green. Again, I'm x360 owner. I'm on xbox live now and my games load fine and I don't have any issues.
alright now im kicked out of xbox live and cannot connect even though i didnt download any Beta software. hopefully the issue gets resolved. EDIT: i cant play my games offline cuz all my saves are in the cloud. this happened to me last week as well where i couldnt access the xbox cloud..
I downloaded the update and I had to try sign in 3 times before finally being able to
I can sign in just fine...but I cant play BF3! so im gonna go play dishonoured while they fix this. had that game sitting here for agesand never touched it. but i really wanna go on BF3 right now.
Shit sucks, all the games an apps I try are the 1's not working. Free AC2 here I come
Can't get on HBO GO nor Amazon Instant.
1st off thank to the author of this story for posting it! My issue started yesterday when I fired up the 360 around 2pm, It asked me to confirm my email and password which I did and all I would get is a code 800705b4 error message!!! I tried going through the steps to solve this error that I found on the web till about 7pm and get the same code error message. I didn't D/L any updates,so I doubt is was a dashboard update that is at issue. Update to this morning...The issue still is there! Funny thing is that I can access XBL throuh smatglass and my android tablet. I can see my friends lis and send messages,but that is about it! WOW this sucks! I will be calling MS today!
UPDATE: Well after 3 tries I was able to get in ,both on my android and 360!!! Although it did ask me to verify a email address that I don't have. STRANGE! I didn't mess with it and just rebooted and all is well!!!
wonder if its hackers that got into it like PSN? that sucks for gamers
software is Microsoft's forte i have faith that they will have it back up and running in no time this isnt psn after all.
I'm sure they'll have it back up and running soon enough, guys.
They must be using up all xbox 360 resources trying to resuscitate the Xbox One. "CLEAR"..... "Flatline"......
