Xbox Live Marketplace Is having difficulties Xbox.com says: Users may experience difficulties when attempting to use Marketplace and/or making purchases.
What do they mean "Again", the problems haven't gone away since the update.
seriously, ever since that update to Xbox.com and whatever else Microsoft did things have been really etchy. I personally don't even like the new Xbox.com. Never freakin works on top of the new design. But yeah no "again", more like "still having"
I have not seen any problems on Live this week.I just picked up some Rock band songs and they all work fine
NXE loads up slow and when I try to download a demo on the XBLM it's just too much loading. I go to click on a game and wait for it to load and then I download the demo and it has to load the screen again. Even when the download completes it has to load again. I doesn't seem to be my connection as I read on the official forums that people have been having the same problem for a while now and supposedly they are going to fix the NXE sometime to make it faster but they said nothing about the XBLM. The XBLM feels like the PS3's old web browser PSN Store. I'm just glad the PSN Store was fixed so now it's a whole lot faster than it was a few years ago.
I don't know of these "problems" I haven't run into em' yet. What are people experiencing because I'm 100% on my end.
What are people experiencing? It...says...it right there: "Users may experience difficulties when attempting to use Marketplace and/or making purchases. " lol
I specifically get weird error msg's like 8000719...so and so on. It means I can't purchase content half the time, or have to continually retry to eventually get it to download. I'm in Aus so don't know if it is different in other regions.
Picked up a guitar hero song with no problems...
I guess the MS fanboys will still defend MS. But why would MS fix all those downtimes if everybody is happy with this poor quality ? PSN is free and it works better, that's unacceptable.
I just commented on the fact that I myself was able to download a song...many others might have problems but Not myself ...its anecdotal krak.... "I guess the MS fanboys will still defend MS. But why would MS fix all those downtimes if everybody is happy with this poor quality ?" this sort of comment is better suited for the open zone pal..
@SCThor - Really? I support gaming, so I own all 3 consoles. I have 2 launch day 360's never had a problem with except them being loud as hell (Disc tray LOL.) MY console is not broken or unreliable. I supported Sony when I went through 5 PS2's. Consumers need to look for good products and it is no secret that the 360 has some serious issues over design and reliability. I personally have not had any problems from my 360, so my purchase was a good one. I have had no problems with my Nintendo Wii, so it was a good purchase. My launch PS3's power supply blew after 2 weeks. It eventually got replaced after 2 months, but you know what, that purchase was still a great one. If you do not like MS that's fine, but to say people deserve it goes a little to far, but hey that's your opinion. On topic, maybe the problems are region specific. My children brought up 56 MS points worth of XBL arcade games, DLC, etc during this time. Obviously they did not have a problem, I wish the service would have been down :).
Especially considering that there are millions of users paying for Live and yet MS still can't get it up and running for everybody after that last update. I hope they figure it out soon.
There's a difference between 2-5% of faulty hardware vs +30%. Don't try to defend MS fault of trying to get as quick as possible into the next-gen(current gen) building a rushed,faulty,low quality hardware. That's the problem, if people keep putting their hands in front of their eyes and pretend that +30% of faulty hardware is "normal", then the problem is not MS, is uninformed and irresponsible consumers that keep buying it. Me, and probably +95% of people that bought a PS2 or PS3 never had any issue with it. You must be one of 60% of buyers that never had a problem with a Xbox360, but those numbers speak for itself. Again, the problem is when people start to think that +30% of unreliable hardware is common and normal in the industry, and sadly, you're one of those.
I love the %30+ figure. I will ask like I do everytime I see that percentage. Can you please give me a source for that percentage? As far as I'm concerned the PS2 had a %100 failure rate but that doesn't mean it's true.. Just love this number that was pulled out of some fanboys arse one day and now it's thrown about like it's some hard fact. Actually, you seem to throw all kinds of bullsh!t percentages around.
http://www.smarthouse.com.a... http://www.gamedaily.com/ar... There you go, and I was wrong, my bad. The failure rate is above 60%!!
I think I'll leave my comment for Open Zone on this one ...
Yeah me too lol. I had to go to the Open Zone for this one as well.
Lets rock the Open Zone then
Wait, I will just stay here
... Pay Beyond XD
$599 US Dollars
$599 US Dollar paperweight with piss poor offerings, playing catch up.
Do you want to join him as well? I'll pay you to get donkey punched by a drunk AID infested hooker so your poor ass can afford a $399 PS3. Get a job. $399 is not alot unless you're a pre-pubescent doucher. Anyway, good night everyone. I gotta wake up extra early for my morning jog. It was a bit rough today, came down with a minor headache.
The only difference is that the 600 dollars paperweight actually works while you pay $300 for a broken system and $60 for broken online service... =D
Nah... I'll leave you and your boy friend alone so you can continue to write love letters to each other in both zones. I purchased the PS3 for $600 bucks and I return all the games and PSN is too simple and not complex enough to run into issues(lackluster features and a wasteland of content) Notice how PSN never grows or advances in any worth while way hence less issues *and* XBL grows by leaps and bounds and thats when the issues occur.
I think wiimaniac just owned all. Open Zone FTW :P Edit: lol @ I did not murder him/ why dis WHATEVER. To say PSN hasnt grown since its debut in 2006 proves you have never owned a PS3.
Sounds like he's praising dialup internet from the 90's(less complex, less issues) He did not pwn anybody all he's doing is admitting PS3 has few online game fanbases the size of XBL followings and PSN isn't doing much in services and features. You do know why the issues started right? its certainly not because nothings is going on and it just happened for no reason, just out of the blue. EDIT: LOL @swiftshot93-Nasim or whatever a small tweek here and there is nothing, playing catch up is what Sony is trying to work on assuming PSN and PS3 are even capable of going where XBL and the 360 is going.
lol...add $80 for a wireless adapter plus re-buy of scratched games, plus adds than "enhance your experience" (lol!!!) Jump Out!
"I did not murder him"<>"why dis" or "pog"....he is just a bitter xbox fanboy, not worth debating with him/her.
P S 3 F T W !!!
No problems here.
saying it wont let me activate my 1600 card and i want battlefield RIGHT away!
That sucks for you pimp. Don't enter it in to many times. You might not be able to get your points back. Happened to a guy once. It took him a couple of weeks to convince MS to give it back.
Xbox Live is left 4 dead~
Well that was weak. I know you can do better than that. I'm staying neutral for the night. I'll just be the motivator. Everything is on the line now!
$50 bucks for a broken service plus adds that "enhance the experience" all over the place..great! Jump Out! (better?)
It's decent enough. Passable.
I think it might just be my system, but the whole interface of the NXE is a bit laggy for me at times. Thats the only performance issue Im having with my 360.
The NXE is lagging at my brothers 360 too. I always find it annoying, it wasn't like this before NXE. If I paid for that I would be mad, but I don't. I'm 100% MS free at my house...
I tried downloading the Battlefield 1943 demo but it told me it was unavailable!! WHY?!?!?!?!
probably tommorow though. gonna call tommorow if problem persisits
Yeah I'm really excited for that game!! Hopefully at least one of us will be able to play it tomorrow! If we can both get it I'll see you on the battlefield.
The link was posted early, 1943 & trial won't be available until tomorrow when it's released(usually around 5AM eastern time). They better not be having these problems when it's released tomorrow, I've been waiting for this game.
Pretty sure it's not supposed to be out yet. Maybe when the game releases. Probably put it up to tease.
no problems in psn..... like ever
There's nothing on PSN to have problems.
but that didnt even make any sense
So why was it 2 days ago I kept getting booted from PSN? Not just me but all my friends. PSN went down for maintenance with no notice at all not very long ago. Sh!t happens on both services and unless you have an Xbox and use Live regularly you have no room to talk or make any assumptions about it.
Down for maintenance? Thats not the same thing as simply having Issues is, maintenance is GOOD not BAD. Most servers do this to, Gamefly, My Bank, online games etc.
Who ever Disagreed just call or email Gamefly for example instead of being an idiot.
You DONT get what you paid for suckas
Sorry to say this but every Xbox360 owner deserve it, for buying a broken and unreliable console. If you are not a responsible consumer and still support MS for manufacturing a low quality piece of hardware, you deserve having this issues.
Sure SCThor/Pirate Thom/Ghost of sparta/Nasim no need to come to your own rescue lol. 360 fans getting superior services with much more support from devs and major companies, with more advanced features and way more content don't care what you stupid ass fanboys like you say.
Yeah? keep paying for frequent downtimes, adds that enhance your experience and repairs every 3 months. Jump in hell.
haha what an assh0le. I am VERY glad I bought an Xbox 360 and have had the best gaming experience of my gaming lifetime with the 360. If you pledged your allegiance to the PS3 only this gen you are missing out but then again you deserve it.
I`m actually really happy to hear that xbl is having some problems. It makes it seem like the psn is actually good :)
Lmao, the difference is, when Xbox live is having difficulties its noted But its never noted when PSN is having difficulties, why? because since its launch its never STOPPED having difficulties, so there's no notable difference :)
live= 5 on 5, chips and dip, chips and dip, everyone live party, chips and dip!!
Not sure what PS3 you've tried but my PSN has never had any issues, so I'm confused at what you are talking about. To me it seems like you are taking a stab at the PSN because Live is having Issues, Get a life.
I sure hope i can get battlefeild 1943 today or ill be pissed
hang on .. is battlefield out ?? is it released ??
Another week, another downtime on Live... MS, I'm really fed up with that now, I'll cancel my subscription if it goes on... Why the heck does a free service like PSN works better and with less lag than a service I'm paying for ?
something tells me you don't have XBL, because you would know the difference between downtime and a few marketplace issues. don't bother posting your gamertag if you do, nobody wants to befriend you anyway
What happened to "You get what you pay for"?
I'm not having any problems. What am I not getting what I paid for?
people! people! calm down. this is uncalled for. it was an attack from sony. we got it fixed in no time. it wont happen again.
Some of the hating here is just so predictable and immature. It's like they are desperate to try and paint Live as rubbish, whilst the rest of us gamers will just keep playing it every day leaving them behind on their keyboards on N4G on how crap it is. lol
