Failing XBL?

#1 Posted by TheGamerGeek (2500 posts) -

Is anybody else'  XBL logging offline while trying to connect to a Gears online match? I know the matchmaking sucks but now I can't find a match and my XBL disconnects frequently. Is the XBL screwing up with you guys?

Yeah everyone is getting kicked off randomly. I'd guess that it has to do with the new dashboard preparations. It's really annoying though.

I was playing for about a couple hours up until 5 or 10 minutes ago, during that time I was booted about 3 times. I was able to log back on, instantly though. At least I was on a map-creator and not in matchmaking, so wutevz.

That's probably right. ^^

Edit: It isn't just Gears of War 2, I forgot to say I was playing Far Cry 2. It's XBL. Anyway, I'm excited for the NXE so it doesn't really matter to me that the pre-launch preparations are causing some turbulence.

I can't wait for the NXE! I have gotten kicked out of Live a couple times but nothing too big.

I thought it was because I downloaded the new NXE patch (seems like anybody who had signed up previously got a code today if not a few weeks ago). Glad it's not just me!

This is not something I have yet experienced.

I haven't gotten the boot as of yet, but I have only played a few hours of MP.
