Monday, 10th August 2009 17:39 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Microsoft’s confirmed to EG that Xbox Live will be down for maintenance tomorrow.

Why? For the summer update, silly.

The update goes live tomorrow to the public after being beta trialed by selective members of Live who filled in a survey a while back.

Get the full lowdown on the update here.

    First it was suppose to be two updates a year (a spring and fall) now its a summer update that fixes the previous fall update last year…LMAO WTF is going on over there at M$. Why does the network go down for maintenance if you are paying?

    PSN doesn’t go down for maintenance

    Wii online does’n….never mind about that one :P

    14.99/month Divide that 30 days equals to 50 cents if you round up, thats your refund it gets a whole lot less if you go for longer terms, 50$ a year is 10 cents a day.

    The point is it so miniscule it doesn’t matter. Its 10-50 cents, you will just have suck it up and play solo

    Were you not joking Gekidami? I assumed you were because of all those idiots that wanted a refund for the downtime at Christmas 07.

    I’m totally serious, i want Microsoft to send me that 50 cent in a 30cm by 80cm cardboard box filled with those little Polystyrene 8 shapes.

    Just be glad you got a 3 year warranty Mr. greedy :P

    (why hasn’t he come yet, I’ve set all the bait dammit)

    The box would be worth more than the 50 cents.

    For sure those boxes are like 79 cents and you want polystyrene

    I like how EG mistakenly calls it the ‘supper update’. :-D

    I surmise this is just online play that’ll be off? Bit tricky to download the new client software to everyone’s machines if they’re turning the whole network off.

    What would be useful if the story actually mentioned the times LIVE was down? I presume its down all day?
