Reminder: Xbox Live is down for maintenance

This is no April Fools' joke, as of about thirty minutes ago both Xbox Live and the "My Xbox" section of are down, undergoing routine maintenance. But you already knew that didn't you? Maintenance is scheduled to last from 5:00-8:00AM eastern (that's 2:00-5:00AM pacific), so you only have a few hours to wait before pwnage can resume. Or so that's what is planned. And for the conspiracy theorists among us you need not start theorizing. We've already been told that no new features will be implemented and no Spring update will be sprung upon us. This is just simple, boring Xbox Live maintenance. Now go read a book until the clock strikes eight.

Praise the gods, Xbox Live is back up!

It has been a while, much longer than expected, but Xbox Live and are finally back up and running! To be honest, we were getting a little worried to whether or not our beloved online service would even make it through this, but praise the gods she's alive. We're thinking that pulling an all nighter may just be the cure for this18 hour Xbox Live deprivation. And even though the maintenance took longer than expected, we have to thank Major Nelson for for his up to the minute status reports from the field. Okay, enough reading, time to get online and game already!

360 fanboys am cry: Live is down

Gone since last night, Xbox Live is still down for maintenance. All we can say is that Microsoft better hurry up and finish maintaining, damn it! We've got important people to frag. Major Nelson, paragon of wisdom that he is, has assured us that the maintenance should be fixed by 1400 Pacific Time. After some research, we've discovered that 1400 is code for 2:00PM. In other words, we've got a few hours to go. Stay strong fanboys, stay strong.

Xbox Live maintenance next Tuesday

Giving plenty of advanced notice, Major Nelson wanted to let everyone know that there is scheduled Xbox Live maintenance coming next week. On Tuesday, March 27th from 3:00AM EST to 5:00PM EST (that's 14 hours) Xbox Live,, and the Xbox Forums will be down and unavailable. Major is also making it clear that this is only internal maintenance and no new dashboard update will be released during this time. Though, we can expect a new dash update later this Spring. Come next Tuesday you'll have plenty of time to clean your room, wax your car, stare at the ceiling or complete a few tasks that recommends. We're scared ... hold us.
