so, i tried to install some updates and it keeps disconnecting me and kicking me out of the game. so i cant play any games on xbox live.

i called the support line and it says the network is having difficulties and theyre "working on it".

so, FYI... :|

I bet you think you achieved something? Like your a master tweaker getting Live going again.

well i didnt mention that i had to overclock my internets to get live working again. i had to update the internet firmware to 1.33.7 too.

on second thought, maybe it was my thin veil that was blocking my live connection.

lol MS or whoever carries the XBL service is stupid. they always get overloaded on traffic and then the server goes down. like after Christmas when a lot of people were registering and XBL went down due to too much traffic. wtf, obviously youre going to get more traffic, why wouldnt you prepare for it? :retard:

So exactly how do you prepare for 3+ million people downloading the same piece of content at the same time?

easy, do as they all do, bring down the service :headexplode:

i mean this isn't the first time for microsoft, and let's not forget amazon's ordeal last christmas when they attempted to sell 500 360's for $200 dollars, network admins ftw.

multiple servers. you allow only a certain number of connections per server and distribute the bandwidth over multiple servers. scale it in parallel. sure, it costs more, but it probably costs the same as hiring people to bring the network back up and iron out the kinks.

Yeah. So don't look at me wrong or I'll cut you so bad you'll wish I didn't cut you so bad.

No seriously we are all lying crooks down here. We'll steal your bread, rape your women, rustle your cattle, and stab you in the back. It's in our blood, aint nothing we can do about it no how.

One thing though. At least we didn't start a war with our mother country...

last night i was trying to play halo 3 coop with my friend and it keeps pausing then disconnected. grrr... it must be xbox live problem. others' not having any issues when playing call of duty 4 and final fantasy xi. i know ffxi uses square enix's servers instead of xbox live servers but do call of duty 4 use their own servers too?

it should be fixed now. from what others are saying, it was down for repairs, but it wasnt entirely down. only some things didnt work.

It was down, it's just you have some strange backdoor access going on there. ::bleh::

What? What?

I was on XBOX LIVE and I heard a voice coming from TV telling me to eat my own feces. Would that be part of the problems they warned us about?
