Xbox Live Down for Maintenance
If you try to logon to your Xbox Live account today, it won’t work. Microsoft has pulled the plugged on the service for their annual maintenance of their online service. If you had a subscription to Xbox Live for more then a year, than you would know this is something the company is known to do once or twice a year. Thankfully, Microsoft is ensuring their users that Live will be up around 12:00AM PST, so just come down if you are trying to play Modern Warfare.
If you are hoping to see the long list of promises Microsoft said would be coming to Xbox Live like Facebook, Twitter and Last.fm, when the service is back online — don’t. This is only the company’s annual cleanup and preparation for these applications, which should be out later this year.
