U get what u pay for, hahaha..
Sad but true.
Wait here's a free game for the trouble. HAHAHAHAHA!!! Free game. Give me a break. I'd rather them keep that and tell me what the deal is. News just gets better everyday for MS. People will start defecting from the 360 if this keeps up. Count on it. Already 2 of my friends are done with it, because of this reason. Nevermind the RROD that plaged them also. They finally listened to me though and they love the PS3. And the free online and Blu Ray. They know whats up. Good luck 360 owners. Your gonna need it.
I have had to endure the pain of 8 Xbox 360 deaths (6 of which were due to the RRoD) but that does not change the fact that there are some really great games on the 360.
I'd understand if your buddies were tight on cash and decided to sell the 360 for a PS3 rather than having both but who in their right mind would switch from a 360 to a PS3.
I love my PS3 just as much as my 360 but I just find that to be kind of stupid.
All that aside, I really hope MS fixes the server issues by the time I get my 360s back from the repair center (which should be in about 2 weeks).
Ours is free and works perfectly yet you have to pay for service that doesnt work? This world is one strange being.
b/c I haven't been able to play COD 4 on my PS3 in days.
the logging in is taking forever, and even then it is not 100% sure, that you will be online... MS must have very lame programmers.
Lame Programmers? Dude - you are 100% correct, when I read your comment, the first thing that popped into my mind was Windows Vista.
Back on topic though, how can a company that is worth Uber Billions, allow these sorts of problems to happen with their online service?
All this is doing is hurting the overall image of the 360, I'm not a fanboy for any machine, I just love games but the fact that they cannot sort out Live is really starting to annoy me. If an ISP was having those sorts of problems everyone would be raising hell about it.
MS need to get it sorted out and tell us the reason as well, we deserve to know why they are been so incompetent.
... are getting to learn what microsoft products are all about.
you guys should stop it'll be fixed eventually
lol i cant keep it in the irony is killing me
you pay for xboxlive $50/year with a p2p network and psn not only has dedicated servers is running perfectly and to top it all off it is free
Damn my "free" service hasn't experienced this many problems.
doesn't have as many people on it and its only a year old.
xbox live has been running fine for 5 years, this is the first time this has happened.
talk to me when you have 2/3 the people xbox live has online and tell me if you have any problems.
excuses, xbl should be free.
I just want to know if the diehard Bots in this site will admit theres a problem now, or is it still just Sony FUD?
There was a problem maybe 5 days after Christmas I have not experienced any problems on any games since January 1st. The only game that sometimes acts up is Cod 4 but thats not because of live but lazy coding. Hate it when host leaves and the game closes.
I had a minor issue over a week ago, no problems since then. Yet I can't play COD 4 at all on my PS3, having to stare at "downloading game settings" is getting old, fast.
You dont wait for less then 2 minutes too join a game...its not happening with everyone..What really pissed me off was losing 15 levels though....supposedly theres some problem with servers too where you lose levels..and if you play on the lesser level and complete the game..the server records the game you finish to the servers and harddrive...you lose your levels...Now that I know what not to do it wont happen again but seriously...its a ridiculous thing even for xbox 360...I have never lost levels in gears of war and I put in more work on cod4.
Yeah I can confirm there is still problems cuz I cant really log into it and when I can it takes AGES for it to load the dashboard -_-
Edit: how the HELL do I get a disagree with something I am experimenting? some people here are in some SERIOUS denial with reality
I played about 2 hours of Halo 3 yesterday and I just finished a few rounds of COD4. Zero problems and lag free. Don't know what the everybody is complaining about but hell I'll take a free game...Anybody know how I get that free game?
But you guys cant say your PSN is running perfectly...Ps3s version of COD4 has been having problems since launch and I remember Warhawk had numerious networking problems.
have selective memory.
they bring up rrod, when they forget DREs
they bring up xbox live having problems, when its only some people and its the 1st time in 5 years this has happened.
yet they forget how they couldn't even use the internet after a ps3 update a cpl months ago.
excuses, never had a problem with psn and its free. As should be xbl. Stop excusing ms and petition for free xbl please.
2 games having network problems is not the same as the whole service with problems. Also, I believe the 360 version of Call of Duty 4 has problems as well.
Now there are no problems. I login really quickly and matchmaking in Halo 3 lasts about 3-5 seconds.
It is normal for servers to become like it did in Xmas time. Right now, there are 10 times more people on Xbox Live than on PSN (Don't spam me if I am wrong about this). But you will see, since PSN is free and when there are enough people on it, it will be very slow. XBL has always been fast in everything from DLC to Multiplayer.
No, it's not normal. You take care over it before holidays. They're running service for 5 years, they should know this could happen. And it doesnt take 20 days to restart servers or install few more. I even doubt it's cuz of capacity problem.
And, there's no need to compare PSN and Live.
Trolls do it all the time!
a 360 section......and look at all of you PS3 ass clowns talking yer
lame ass sh1t, HA.
Why aren't you jak offs playing Lair or something,no you would rather
bash in the 360 news threads.
360 really threatens you people huh?
You're some sorry motherfvckers,everyone of you little Sonytwits.
The problems will be resolved.........just have to wait a bit.
Oh,but it's OK when Playstation 3 fanscum have to wait for all the crap they've been promised......... and for months may I add.
Playstation retards are some of the biggest dumbsh1ts I've ever
come across in this life.
Hahahaha!!! why you getting so angry. Ive had problems with live for weeks now. I never really complain, i just live with it.
If this keeps up this is going to be bad if they dont fix it very soon.
The psn has had no problems yet accept a couple of cod4 and warhawk couple of problems i think.
We cant tell what psn will run like with 10 million people and all the downloads that xbox live has, no one knows because it has not heappend yet, accept sony knows what psn can and cant handle.
I haven't logged into XBL since a week or so I just cba either tbh, rather play CSS on PC.
i have had some problems, as stated in some previous posts over the last couple weeks, especially when trying to play COD4 although even the PS3 COD4 game was having some problems for some reason so cant say its all been XboxLIVE. but anyway i can deff say its been getting better, something small but when i log into XboxLIVE on my dashboard the LIVE blade and the Games blade doesnt show properly, it is blank with the sign of the Xbox and dots going around it for ages lol, hopefully they will get it sorted soon.
psn has around 6 mil people on psn btw..
still having now problems:)
I see you're still having "now" problems.......AHAHAHHAAHHAHAH A
Hopefully it comes back soon. All Xmas break I was 360 less.
MINES IS FINE
It boggles my mind that we're still having problems. It's been nearly 3 weeks.
Then again, I guess it shouldn't surprise me. This is the same company that hasn't fixed the RROD almost 2 years after launch.
This problem is simply uncalled for with a paid service. I'm glad I have some single player games to beat.
I tried to ign into xbox live to play cod4 online lat night and it STILL Doent work. WTF MS. I paid for what?
wots your gamertag?
its Imallvol if your trying to pull one of those YOU DONT HAVE A 360 FANBOY things. I was able to get on tonight finally.
not at all, i was just curios as i was going to check where you was from and see if it was certain people in certain areas not being able to get online.
glad you managed to get online, i didnt try last night, i went on my PS3 lol.
I am still having problems- especially staying connected and loading the dashboard- I feel they need to offer a free month to all the gold members during this time....
it's so freaking funny how u XBOTS have to pay for that
SONY has barely JUST STARTED TO SUPPORT ONLINE AND ITS FREE OF EVERYTHING
NO SERVERS DOWN
ALL FOR FREE
sony ftw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!
but no problems now
good start 2 the new year!!! ;-D
You are missing the issue. This is not a matter of contract, it is a matter of good customer service. Owes, no, good business practice….well, let me ask you….are you happy playing Live right now?
live seems to be workin just fine for me
not had any problems at all, apart from it being a tad slower than normal to log in...
I am playing Uncharted, Mass Effect, and the end of Ratchet.
So, I wont be online for at least another few weeks.
I’m still experiencing problems trying to connect to COD4 games. Yesterday was sort of OK, but today is slow and unreliable.
