I just saw that XBOX Live will be down on the 29th. I wonder if when it comes back up we will have the new fall update...

I kind of doubt that'll happen. But that'd be nice...

Aren't we all getting free games at some point too?

I read that the fall update will be later. This downtime is just to get them ready for it. :(
I haven't heard about any free games.

I thought MS promised us a free game for the big outage they had and some group threatened legal action.

Zune (Marketplace) will be down as well.

The Zune service will be down for scheduled maintenance on Monday, September 29, 2008 from 12:01am Pacific Time, for up to 48 hours. During the downtime, Zune Social, the forums on Zune.net, and all of Zune Marketplace will be offline.

They did give us a free game already for that. It was called Undertow and if you missed out then I would't worry its no big loss.

Think of all the red X's everywhere instead of gamertags on the 29th...

Yeah I read about that. That's too bad because I'm so looking forward to NXE. Check http://www.majornelson.com for screenshots of NXE using themes and whatnot.

It's nice that you can disable avatar and use gamerpic if you wish. And all existing themes will work in NXE. Original dashboard will still be available, if you wish to use instead of NXE.

Probably was US only. Or perhaps everywhere but Australia. Like the original 'World wide' launch.

November for the fall update.

Here's a preview of the new interface http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/nxe/

What's the point of the November Fall update again Lyme? Apart from the fact November is in Spring!

So I guess if the "fall update" slips into December, December is now part of the summer?

The purpose of the update, like everything in this world, is to annoy you to death. :)

November is in Spring? You guys act like you live on the other side of the world or something.

That's correct December is Summer. Ah summer, summer and Christmas go together. BBQs, swimming, sleeping nude while the ocean breeze comes through the windows.

Now I understand the purpose of this spring update.

Alright now I'm more confused that Oprah at a closed down Krispy Kreme doughnut joint.

All you need to know is Australia is number 1.

Actually it's Monday that it's down, not Wednesday as portrayed in that comic.

To paraphrase Yahtzee, you couldn't have missed the point if you fired in the opposite direction, and the point were in another state all together.

That PA comic was from 4 years ago. The stuff inside the 3 panels is the most important part. ;)

It's Tuesday and Live is back up.
I still don't know why that comic portrayed it as Wednesday.
