According to the good ‘ole Major Nelson (is he even that old?), Xbox LIVE will be down for some routine maintenance, following some turbulence experienced by the service over the weekend. Was this due to the New Xbox Experience Beta? From the Major:
“On Monday, 11/17/2008 from 2:00 AM PST for up to 45‒minutes, Xbox Live will be offline for maintenance. As a result, Xbox LIVE and the ‘My Xbox’ section of Xbox.com will be unavailable, and the Xbox forums will be in read only mode (you won’t be able to post.) The remainder of Xbox.com will be available with limited interruptions.”
“This service maintenance is in preparation for the new Xbox experience which will be available this Wednesday.”
If our calculations are correct, that’s 10:00 am GMT. How’s the weather in your part of the world?
