Xbox Live Problems Again

Well it looks as if Xbox Live has gone crazy again with users experiencing problems.
Xbox Live Status: Up and running

Users may experience intermittent issues with tournaments, posting statistics, matchmaking, and sending messages. We are aware of the issue and are actively working towards a resolution. We apologize for any inconvenience. (Culture, Xbox, Xbox 360)

is there xbox live just like their crappy console?...
power of Green  +   2490d ago
Dumb ass fanboys shouldn't worry about a service they do not have why are you in here?.

Come back and talk sh*t when other game console services are half as complex as XBL is and has the fanbase size of XBL(or has as much to offer).

What does a console have to do with service based issues?. Why are Sony fanboys so stupid, do they do it on purpose?.

Easy there POG
you are one to talk when you yourself go into PS3 sections and wise crack about how solid the XBL is compaired to Sony and go on for days about the quality of service you pay $50.00 a year for, what is the matter, you can dish it out but can't take it?

Poor guy, you must be very high strung. Why don't you put down that Mountain Dew Red and have a nice glass of Sprite or 7up?

But but but.. You are PAYING for it. Live should be better then that free crappy PSN right? They get money so they can fix a perfect Live right?
but but PSN doesn't lag... dammit!!
PSN support many players on Warhawk... dammit!!
Must. Find. Something. To. Whine. On...
Well.. At least you pay for Live so it's better in some way.. Right?

You are absolutely right. Live IS better than Psn. This is why so many people choose to pay for it rather than use a free service. Just because you are paying for something doesn't mean it will be perfect 100% of the time. 99.9% is good enough, save for a few hours here and there during the holiday week, when a few million new users jammed the servers.

That's great about warhawk supporting many players. XBL does too. Did you think that every game has a 16-player limit just like Halo?

PSN never lags, huh? Is that a scientific assessment?

Sorry POG but the size of your fanbase is no excuse. If you can't provide the service you advertise and for which people pay then you need to cut back features or make it free.

Defective products have everything to do with the matter when you do not know if it is Xbox Live or your console creating issues. It took me a few minutes to figure out that my 4th 360, a Halo edition, has begun to freeze up on me.
Sayai jin  +   2489d ago
Hmmm, what does this have to do with the PSN? They should not be compared right now. I did not have problems this time around and the last time this was reported. None of my XBL buds had issues, well one did last time, but it is becuase he had pirated games and a modded system, so they banned his XBL account.

People are always comparing how great XBL is compared to the PSN or how the PSN is free and you have to pay for XBL. IMO, XBL is like $4.50 a month, whch is the price of a value meal at McDonalds or almost a gallon of gas, mere chump change for most. PSN is free and will be for quite a while, I do think they will charge for features when HOME arrives (furniture, clothes, etc). XBL live has been around for over 5 years and has had the time tweak the network. PSN is new. Honestly I do not use PSN that much; at first I did with WarHawk, but I do not play it much that more, plus I started getting lag. So yes, there is lag on the PSN. I have a T1 connection, so it is not on my end. I would also pay for PSN was it makes some improvements, which will happen in 2008. I have all three current systems and I have to say that XBL adds tht extra element of excitement. I was playing Cyberball and listening to some Music and chatting to an old XBL bud and downloading the Fuels for War demo all at once and all on the 360 and XBL, then I got a game invite from another XBL bud to play a game of Gears of War with just one clcik of a button I was playing that match in under 20 seconds. My download stopped, but I was still chatting to the person. For these grear experiences I do not mind some small bumps in the roads occasionally.

Nah its probably just 3 or 4(connected to XBL) million people joining all at once or in a few days.

I guess on the PS3 not enough people buy games(or consoles) to over come any one devs severs. lol
gamesR4fun  +   2490d ago
nah its just Sony servers arnt run by M$

POG its kinda funny watching you bots defend your pay for crap service by trying to bash Sony's superior free service.
vgn24  +   2490d ago
@3.1 gamesR4fun
And you embarrass the rest of us by calling people bots when you attack 360 owners. You're no better. Your actions show that you're defending your purchase by attacking those who purchase something else. Your attempt at looking smooth = fail. Both systems have pros and cons. Stop acting like either one is perfect.
gamesR4fun  +   2490d ago
meh a bot's a bot and a sony droid is a droid

nothing wrong with calling a spade a spade imo
ElementX  +   2490d ago
@3.2
Great comment. Bubbles to you. I hate it when people defend their purchase by talking sh!t about the competition. Gamers are the only ones who do this. Look at manufacturers, they never say "our competition sucks balls" or athletes saying "yeah, our competition sucked last night, ya know, they just suck and did I mention they really suck?"
crck  +   2490d ago
Its a good thing Live is fre.....
Oh wait, never mind. BTW It don't matter if its 200 million people trying to get on at the same time. MS collects $50 from each one of them so the frickin' service better work.

Not fake
Major Nelson (the Xbox Live Director of Programming) has posted this:

that's correct, even tho i have the free silver account, i just can't login into XBL for a quite while now... and yeah the stupidest excuse is when people start with the "too many people are using/playing", like if you had to wait, till less people are online :D MS should upgrade the servers, but they probably just want to take the money from GOLD members and do nothing...
NaAsAr  +   2490d ago
yea, this sucks really guys.
when and if i log on, i get how many friends are on but no info on the home blade.ufff......i am totally missing out on my nightly puzzle fighter matches with my euro friends :(
jaja1434  +   2490d ago
Enh? Why all the huss and fuss? The main comment I am reading is that your paying for Live so it should always work, that about right? I just ask because that has to be one of the stupidest things said. Lets take one example...

WoW

That game cost 16$ a month and many a raids where ruined by a world server crash, horrible lag, or just random disconnects.

So is everyone up in arms because they are looking for something to prove how their network is better than yours, or just being immature?
ambientFLIER  +   2490d ago
Wah wah wah, all you crybabies go outside or something if you can't live without the internet for a few hours.

"I'm paying this outrageous $4 a month for the service, and it friggin breaks down on me on average of twice a year for a whole two friggin hours!!! How will I curse at others and teabag someone in Halo now???!!!"

Wah wah wah.

I would hate to see you guys when your cable or electricity goes out for a whole day.
numba1baller  +   2490d ago
if u dont got a 360 stfu and go play warcock or heavenly whore
it happens to every online service and if you dont owe a 360 why talk about it, do u want one?
Shaka2K6  +   2490d ago
Like the RROD wasnt enough for the x360 users.
Even microsoft wants you to stay away from that laggy p2p POS overpriced service, you better listen.

yet another reason why.
PSN > live.
Kyur4ThePain  +   2490d ago
I smell a price increase...
$65 per year coming in March 2008.

This is all part of the setup...interrupt the servoce a little and people will be happy to pay more if we promise them a more stable environment.

Brilliant, MS.

@Legion:
Sure, exhibit the usual response to something you don't like - attacke what you perceive to be the enemy, the Sony side.
You do realize that whatever you say is not going to change this situation, right?

Check your pants, I think that might be something else you smell?

I have heard that the 2 PSN users are having no problem at all connecting between themselves. They do have to call each other up to find out which of the 2 games they should play though. Too bad they haven't figured out they need to own the same games. Oh well... thank you and come again.

Uh oh someone is on the rag again
Will remember this comment bookmark and be sure to rub it in your droid face while your eating your foot again. It's a service I'll be glad to provide for you free of charge :-)
JasonPC360PS3Wii  +   2490d ago
Must mean there have been a sh!t load of Xbox 360's sold this year and a huge surge in new Xbox Live accounts.
To bad you couldn't say the same for the PSN, I mean hell 6 million consoles worldwide and on half of them connected. I bet their servers must have one hell of a high traffic problem (snickering). Wow there has to be 10 million people on Live, that is a high demand. I wonder how UT3 servers do it? oh wait nevermind I forgot there are only about 50k people playing UT3 so they probably don't have this problem. I wonder will the PSN ever have enough people logging on to cause the network problems? Oh wait, I guess they would have to buy games for that, no need to log on to PSN when your only watching Spiderman 3.

Forbidden_Darkness  +   2490d ago
aint it funny how M$ takes your money and than make you have to go through this kind of crap?

you pay 300 or 400 dollars for a console. pay 50 dollars a year just to play on xbox live. and thats what you get? wow you must feel awesome knowing your actually going to spend more on your console by the time your done with all of it... you play two years and your already at 400 or 500 dollars which is just bout the same as the ps3 and then you have you RROD problem which costs more... and all of the other things you go through lol. and than you go and try and defend M$ when u should actually be sad that you pay 50 dollars a year just so M$ has to waste your valuable online time to fix problems they should have been ready for, but i guess xbox owners expect to always have problems with everything...

M$ is getting very dumb with their service... like how they make silver members wait a week to just get the same thing gold members get right away... i like it how M$ shoves their fellow console owners aside just for some money... wow you xboxians really have it going for you...

Well, some of us have jobs and lives, and that means we can afford the grand sum of $4 a month and a few hours of xbl downtime a year. Also, most of us understand how technology works and don't expect it to always be perfect. However, I can understand that PS3 owners are upset because they can't afford that kind of money after blowing $70000000 on a movie player. In addition, I realize their need to write out essays on why the PS3 is the best thing in the world, because they have to justify the purchase to themselves.

Facts:

- Silver members wait a week because they are using free accounts to access the best service there is. Gold members have perks for paying. Seems fair.

- RROD doesn't cost you anything.

- XBL is superior to PSN, and we gladly pay for it.

Isn't it funny how Sony takes your money for the PS3 and makes you wait for everything?

The end.
Forbidden_Darkness  +   2490d ago
actually i would have gladly paid 2000 dollars for my ps3 (wouldnt have paid a cent for the xbox 360). and i also own 28 ps3 games. i have a job, i work hard and i put my money toward a console that actually doesnt fail 33% of the time and has alot better exclusives.

"However, I can understand that PS3 owners are upset because they can't afford that kind of money after blowing $70000000 on a movie player"

---wow, you oviously have had alot of hardships for loosing your online service for a bit cuz you oviously are unaware that the ps3 is 400 or 500 dollars. so maybe next time you should think before you say dumb things.---

"- Silver members wait a week because they are using free accounts to access the best service there is. Gold members have perks for paying. Seems fair."

---in the first place M$ doesnt need to make xbox owners spend money to play online, M$ only cares about the damn money and not about your wallets---

"Isn't it funny how Sony takes your money for the PS3 and makes you wait for everything?"

--- hell id rather wait for something good, than something crappy, but of course even if you guys had to wait it would still be crappy...---

"The end. "

---Yes, the end of your console's life cause your one of the 33% who have a crappy console...---

"wow, you oviously have had alot of hardships for loosing your online service for a bit cuz you oviously are unaware that the ps3 is 400 or 500 dollars. so maybe next time you should think before you say dumb things."

- No, I didn't have any hardships because my XBL never went out. Also, I am aware that the PS3 is slightly less than $700000, but it's called sarcasm.

"in the first place M$ doesnt need to make xbox owners spend money to play online, M$ only cares about the damn money and not about your wallets"

- XBL is paid because it has so much content and so many features. Don't compare it to PSN and say that it's free, because it's not the same thing. It's like cable TV and antenna TV. One is paid, and the other one free, and one is infinitely better and nobody ever complains about paying for it. Also silver members can play some games online and access all the features for free, just wait a delay for the demos. If someone gave me the option for free HD cable and all I had to do was wait a week for the exclusive movie releases, I'd have no problem with that.

"hell id rather wait for something good, than something crappy, but of course even if you guys had to wait it would still be crappy"

- Yeah, kinda like your copy of the Orange Box, huh? Waited for it, and it sucks. What about Lair, you guys waited for that an it really sucked.

"Yes, the end of your console's life cause your one of the 33% who have a crappy console"

- When did I ever say that my console died on me? I've had it for about a year now and it works perfect, save for freezing with an original xbox game that wasn't emulated correctly. You lose.

Because if you truly had "red rings" (RROD) nothing would have restarted, infact you wouldn't be able to do anything at all but dust off an old console while calling XBOX

Can someone please tell me what makes XBL so great? I am not impressed about a 50 dollar a year service. And before you judge me i HAD a 360 but got rid of that space heater for something else. Never looked back since. M$ is full of shyt and everyone knows it. PSN is just as good and has less problems. Hmmm...and its free. And for those who say "well there are not alot of people on PSN", please you xbots love speculating. If there are so many people on LIVE then shouldnt M$ be ready for it? Thats what i thought.
