The above is taken from the Xbox support site which is reporting on the status of Xbox Live. The above is complete bullshit, considering I can't even log in to my fucking account on my Xbox. But for some reason the website works fine (except for obvious Microshaft related issues). Why would they say the system is up and running if all that shit is happening? Plus of course what's happening to me. They should be saying that service is extremely patchy. And most importantly, they should hurry the hell up and fix it. You'd think they would have prepared for the post-Christmas rush. But no, that would make waaay too much sense for something Microshaft would do.
