Xbox LIVE Server Problems Cause Achievements To Disappear

Via Ripten:

"As if the recent Xbox Live issues hadn't caused enough problems, it now appears that you can actually lose an unlocked achievement as well. I've had a recent run-in with this disturbing occurrence, and as always, 1-800-4my-xbox's Max was there to help me out - and of course by help me out, I mean annoy me while I try to connect to a real person."

The story is too old to be commented.

M$ should refund the money to those who pay for this crappy online service. really, I dont understand why so many people pay for live when it's actually not THAT good. PSN then comes into my mind, it is lag free and it is free so where is the justfication for the 60$/year for xbox live? could anybody of the xbox fans make a statement and tell me why they are letting themselves being ripped-off?

General Pinky3398d ago

your achievements will not go...it is all store on the hard drive...if anything happens to the severs and they fix it then you can upload it again...(it is more like just loging into xbox live)
and everything is back
so you sony fanboys can cut this talk and go back on the PS3..or wait no games...still waiting for the AAA games

Whats going on with microsoft's xbox 360??!!...its bad news after bad news, it reminds me when the PS3 first came out and got all that negative publicity...but its really weird whats happening right now...i bet there is something more serious than "too many new player jamming the servers" going on and they are not telling the truth. Xbox live has been around like for 5 years and i've never heard of something remotely similar happening before...

gamesR4fun3398d ago

another lawsuit lol

pretty bad for a pay service imo but how many peeps really care about achievement points?

TheSadTruth3397d ago

Achievements are stored on your hard drive.. it doesn't matter if they roll back the servers.. if he lost his achievement it has nothing to do with Xbox Live AT ALL

You will see his only articles are Xbox 360 smear articles, so this might not even be true

Now anyways, before you little kids press disagree 400 times on my post, keep in mind glitches happen and who the hell cares about video game achievements enough to post an article about them? lmao

Okay am I wrong or was Live the best online service until recently? I have lots of respect for Live but all i'm seeing are stories about live problems. What the hell is going on?

The problems is that so many people joined xbox live over the recent holidays that wasn't expected. They got slammed with too many requests at once and it started getting bad. It wasn't until Christmas morning when everyone got their 360's and live service.

While it hasn't been perfect since Christmas, it is still fully functional. Online gaming is lag free, voice chat is clear. It was bad for a few days where you couldn't do hardly anything, but it was only a few days and is expected after the holidays. Any network getting that many people signing up, logging on, and hammering servers at once will cause a negative effect.

The only problem that still lingers is the messanger, which is only used to chat with PC MSN clients (not other gamers). But this isn't a big deal anyway.

Most of the reviews and "news stories" are just Sony Fanboys making a mountain out of an anthill (over dramatizing it).

I just got done playing 3 hours of Halo 3 online and voice chatting. I didn't have a single problem and everyone had good signal.

How come people are disagreeing with guys that are saying achievements are stored on the hard drive. That is true, maybe this 360 owner was just having a blond moment :-P

EDIT: Ah cool, so it is on the hard drive and on live too. Maybe not such a blond moment for the user then.

until u go online with the console. once u sign in, it goes through xbox live, i know this for a fact because i had my hard drive wiped and then recovered my gamertag from xbox live and had all my achievements still

travelguy2k3397d ago

People that have a core 360 cannot get Achievments. As the core has no HDD it obviously cannot store achievments, unless, like email this info is stored on the Microsoft servers.

Logical thinking says that achievments are stored on the 360. But the fact that there are 360's with no HDD say this cannot be true.

MrWonderful3398d ago

Twizlex3398d ago

That is so totally not good... not good at all... I'd even go so far as to say that's really bad.

Nostradavis3398d ago

I agree Twiz....this sucks for the people that bust their ass to get achievements. I would not want to have to do some of the things they make you do over again...

wil4hire3398d ago

This really keeps getting better and better.
