It's only a day. Doesn't really bother me. Besides, I've got Ace Combat 6 to play. :)

^ ^ It's preparation for the new Dashboard. It's supposed to run faster and look cleaner. I wonder if they finished yet? I'm getting impatient! I can't wait to play with my new goodies! :D

NXE (the "new Xbox experience", the avatars, the new dashboard and that stuff) is not coming out until november. This was just a preparation for that update...

.... and I can't wait for it! I think it'd be interesting if they do make a Big Brother game using the avatars :D

No, Xbox Live sent everyone a message on Friday night, warning us that it will be down tonight, for new upgrades, for 18-24 hours.

It must still be down, I can't sign in to xbox.com. :(

Oops, didn't read this post yet :o

Can anyone connect to LIVE yet? I can logon to xbox.com, but im having problems running it, something about insufficent MTU (even though mine passes the minimum requirements) :confused:

Some people don't like change, no matter how good it is. Tell him to deal with it, or if you feel like being more constructive inform him the slides will still be there when you press the guide button.

I don't use live, nor do I have gold. Is there no way that I can get this update offline, like a CD or something from Micro$oft?

Plus I only have an Arcade edition 360, so no internet cable thingy :\

Live went down purely to improve the live experience (new servers, probably getting ready for the update and for the onslaught Gears 2 will bring to the service.)

When the dashboard update comes you should be able to download it onto disc from the net, just like you can with backwards compatibility updates. You really should at least get Silver though, do you not have internet in your home?

Oh so that's why I wasn't able to sign in yesterday! Almost though I was losing the plot.

I have the internet, but the 360 Arcade didn't come with internet connectivity cables or anything. So I'll have to buy the add ons that cost upward of about 60 quid, that I can't really spare right now. Sad huh? :p

Ah, didn't really affect me, since I can't get online on my 360 here in university accommodation anyway. Oh well.

Just buy an ethernet cable, don't cost much. If you go into a privately owned computer shop it only costs a couple of quid to get even a really long one made. Bit more awkward than the wireless adapter since you need to have the cable going into the router but a lot cheaper if you can't afford the wireless adapter at the moment.
