Downtime for and Xbox Live

Word has it that and Xbox live are going to be down this coming Tuesday, so get all of your gaming done Monday night ;).

We’ve got some scheduled maintenance coming up and want to let everyone know that both the Xbox Live® service and will be offline and unavailable starting at midnight Pacific Time on Tuesday October 17, 2006 for up to 24 hours. We know you’ve got some questions, so here are some answers:

Q: Why? Why? Why?

A: Because we’re adding some cool stuff. And we have to take the service and website offline in order to do it. We’re not doing it to make you mad … really.

Personally, I can’t wait to see what awesomeness they have up their sleeves, because Major Nelson chimes in with the following note:

When the service come back, you will not have a dashboard update. That will happen later this Fall.

Knowing that gets me all tingly inside – and since that’s not normal, i think I might go and get a physical tomorrow…
