Reminder: Xbox Live down today

I’m sure you all know by now, but just in case you weren’t paying attention, the entire Xbox Live service will be down for maintenance today 10/17, including While there haven’t been any details on what will be changing, it’s already been stated that this is not the Fall dashboard update. Sorry, 360 owners!

Otherwise, look for things to return to normal tomorrow sometime in the near future.

In the meantime, you can always hang out here in our forums or hey, play some Halo 2 campaign and finally locate all those skulls!

    Pshaw…yeah right… ;)

    If you go to, it says “We’ll be back soon with amazing new My Xbox® features”. Not sure what ‘My Xbox’ is, but if it takes this long for a small update, I don’t even want to know how long the Dashboard update will take.

    My Xbox is the part where you can view your friends list, send messages to gamertags via the internet
