All Xbox Live Members should be receiving this message:
"Xbox LIVE will be unavailable for approximately 4 hours on September 10th 2007 to upgrade the service starting: 02:01 PDT, 09:01 GMT and 18:01 GMT+9. See xbox.com for more information."
...for the fall dashboard update, or possibly even rolling it out since from the sounds of it some of Halo 3's features won't even work until the 360 is updated.
Halo 3 is going to be huge and everyone will be on Xbox Live on Sept 25 (except me since I will play the campaign first).
Like the clan features. That's why it was left out the Halo3 game. It will be a part of the dashboard. I predict Fall Update to drop on the 17th.
i agree, as soon as i saw this news article on the n4g.com page i thought it mite have something to do with getting ready for Halo 3, i know MS will want everything to run as smoothly as possible when Halo 3 arrives.
lol,ppl wimping about i t being down for 4 hours, lol. Deal with it
The only person complaining is #1.
It'll be more like 18 hours...it's always down much longer than they say.
Anyone know when the fall update will be rolled out?
I heard it was in October and they were going to be major changes
i think thats...10am to 2pm my time...im not gaming then so doesnt affect me
i dont know about you guys but i really appreciate MS giving us the heads up a week in advance
i will also be unable to game at this time due to being in College. and if everything goes to plan then it will be done about 2 hours before i get home :D
I already downloaded both avatar seasons so I'm good. Do what you got to do.
Anyone complaining either hates the 360 or has no life outside of playing their 360 all day. For everyone else, bring on the fall update!
Upgrades are always welcome.
That's no big deal, I'll be sick that day anyway.
So you know that on the 10th you will come down with something? Interesting power you have!
Its not like we still can't enjoy single play games.
Such as Bioshock and Metroid.
They usually update after 12am, & they always give us more to love 'bout XBL.
3 weeks to 4 player co-op & multiplayer on Halo 3 !!! WOOT WOOT !!
anyone who was involved in a flame war about xbox live having a common bi0annual maintenance, is a complete loser. You should seriously reflect upon your life...
Then please explain to me, why so many of these same people posting here flamed warhawk for maintenance?
Those guys are idiots too. Two wrongs don't make a right.
I've never heard of a Maintenance that was un-announced, have you?
You don't call what happened to warhawk maintenance, yo call that PSN latency.(they need to add more PS3 to their servers)
I'm sure it was un expected, but if a ps3fan knows there was maintenance, they wouldn't have waited over 30 mins to get in a game..you dipsh!t.
See xbox fans now now of this date, so they will not try to play games at that time. now thats a heads up maintenance.
this just proves on why xbox live has a way better server than PS3. Werent we prophetic about this long time ago before it just happend, that not haveing a well paid server can go down in low maintenence, especially when you have a game that alot of people play. Damm, look at Gears of War, millions play everyday, and till this day i havent noticed any maintinence problems whatsoever, except for people with sucky connections. Which are not that many, since everyone uses a DSL.
um, they were complete losers as well?
Duh.....it doesn't go like they made fun of my maintenance, so im am going to do the same....nope, if you flamed anyone on either topic, you are a loser and will stay a virgin for your whole pathetic life.
adding HUGE server capacity for halo 3:)
since Xbox Live is a P2P service. Probably for the matchmaking though that sets up the multiplayer games. I still say Bungie has the best matchmaking system. Didn't realize how lazy I was until I started up Warhawk, hehe.
I have been on live since like 2003 or 2004. It has been down like 10 times since. I think that is good.
Any down time is often at odd hours. Microsoft is very good about keeping Live available.
I live in my moms basement and I need every oppurtunity to make myself feel good by cursing under voice masking on xbox live!!!!I should kill myself on the 9th.:)
Get a life Shake.Do you even have a girlfriend?
yes why yes I do....and her name is Cortana.
dude you hella funny
didn't they announce that they had changed the Live infrastructure so that they could update without needing down time. Oh well, just means I'll have to finish bioshock.
This is a stupid subject.
If you compare the 2 you gotta compare more then games. You gotta compare service, Price, Game quality, Also what about when "home" comes out? What about accessability and userfriendlyness (If thats a word)? As it stands right now xbox live has more time in the running. You cant compare this period. When sony has the same amount of time in as xbox (i.e. about 2 years) they could have double what xbox has right now. And by then Xbox could have 5 times.... When PSN catches up to them at their current lifecycle...
look at it this way, A metaphor if you will, a 2 year old kid is 10X more adept then a 1 year old. a 3 year old much more then a 2 year old. Its not really til 4 or 5 years old they kinda reach the same in Motor functions, Speach and other stuff...
Its an unfair judgement and a stupid idea. Anyone who buys into this for flaming or ammunition is just digging really hard. Scraping the bottom of the barrel... Seriously. If you wanna compare PSN to Xboxlive... Thats apples and oranges. I own both consoles... Bomberman compares to very little on PSN. Nothing on XBL even comes close to Warhawk... As far as production at least... You can't even try to compare. I'm sure speeds of DL are in the comparison too. Same time. 1 is a free service the other is not. You get what you pay for... Fast speeds = you dishing out money every month... What do you want. I bet if PSN cost money every month it would provide better service. As it stands who knows? Who cares? useless argument...
This article is just a flame starter and whoever wrote it needs to be shot.
about nothing on xboxlive compares to Warhawk. Warhawk is the only thing you guys have multiplayer or online wise. So, you might agree and admit that Xbox Live has, by far, way more features then PS3. "Nothing on XBL even comes close to Warhawk... As far as production at least"...production WTF, what are you talking about production, isnt multiplayer ment for gameing. Because so far games like Gears of War and others shootters are nearly a million always playing.
Also, you say this is a usless article but than yet you typed or more like past a paragraph or two, do to the fact that this has nothing to do with starting a flame war, but for the reason to let the Xbox Live subscribers know in advance that there will be a upgrade to the dashboard.
Your comment is just a flame starter and since you wrote it needs to be shot.
I dont know why but I clicked on the Sony vs Xbox forum and it threw me here... Maybe I missclicked... Basically what the article ilustrates is downloadable games... I hate people comparing day vs night and thats all... Everything is an opinion... Thats all
Also "You needs to be shot"???
