Yes! I was about to post the same type of question.

I was playing a game of NBA 2K8 and ran one hell of a game against somebody. I was down by 5 with 8 seconds to go in the game and Kobe missed a three, then my connection was lost from XBOX Live. Well I ran the connection tests and everything was fine except for the "XBOX Live" portion.

Finally after about 25 minutes I was able to get back on. Of course there was a voice message from the dweeb saying he was pissed that I "cheated by disconnecting" from our game. You would think that he would have checked my feedback and see that something may have been wrong because I've never had a damn disconnect...ever!!! What a fricken punjucket that guy is.

Uh, ya, anyways, I had problems with LIVE last night too! :o

My story isn't quite as intense as SOBAYs, but I had issues all night with live as well. It went on over the span of the entire night, because I periodically checked back every few hours.

Hopefully it will be back up and running as usual tonight.

Hopefully we will get another free game. :D

Seriously though, whats up Microsoft? We aren't paying for this service so it can be intermittent and lackluster.

I noticed it as well. I was playing MLB 2k8 not on live just an exhibition game, and during the 6th inning the message popped up that I was disconnected fron xlive. I shut it down after the game and never bothered to check later.

I got on this morning and everything was fine. :banana: :banghead: :banana: :banghead: :banana: :banghead: :banana: :banghead: :banana: :banghead: :banana: :banghead: :banana: :banghead:

They just did some Xbox Live maintenance the other night... Things often get fishy the day following scheduled maintenance. I'm sure it will clear up shortly if it hasn't already

Let's hope that was the case. Do you know what the maintenence was for?

My guess? Expanding infrastructure, uploading self destruct codes to any non-warrantied Xbox, planting viral codes in our Xbox's to hypnotize the user and force us to download more videos... ya know, typical Microsoft stuff.
