Went on the Xbox just to play some rockband blitz, maybe download some songs and couldn't log in to xbox live. After testing connection and it came back fine I still couldn't get on. Went online and found out that Live is down today, some say it's because the Elder Scrolls DLC today and too many folk are downloading it, others (trolls) are saying it got hacked like PSN a while ago. Anyway just thought I'd let others know it's down, well in UK it is, dunno about rest of the world.
XBOX Live Down Today
I'm kind of doubting that XBL went down because of Skyrim DLC. In fact, I really, really doubt that. I also really, really hope that Xbox Live isn't getting hacked as we speak, I've got rather important information on there.
EDIT: And it appears the site doesn't work right either.
A hacker would try to steal information and then bail without causing suspicion. When Xbox live goes down for an hour and then back up again, then it's not an attempt of hacking, because if it were the team would do a thoroughly investigation of the suspicious activity and pull the service down for much longer than just an hour, even if the attack was successful or not.
I'd say this is just another error when transferring marketplace data onto the service. Has happened quite a few times. And as we speak the team has just announced they fixed the issue. Should be working for everyobdy now.
