    Exclamation Xbox LIVE Downtime Alert!

    Quote Originally Posted by Xbox Website

    This particular Xbox LIVE downtime is especially important because it will ready the Xbox LIVE network for the arrival of the New Xbox Experience later this year – an amazing free update that will change the way you enjoy Xbox 360 entertainment forever. Think of it as the first tremor before the earthshattering arrival of something extraordinary!
    Very soon the New Xbox Experience will transform your Xbox 360 into a limitless world of home entertainment in which the best games, movies and TV shows live side by side with your personal pictures and music library. Everything you enjoy about your Xbox 360 can be shared at any time with friends via Xbox LIVE using cool customisable animated Avatars.
    So remember, Xbox LIVE will be unavailable from 9am [10am CET] on September 29th for 24 hours. You won’t see the New Xbox Experience when LIVE comes back online, but you will be all ready to receive it when it launches later this year.
    It’s proof that good things come to those who wait!
    Tis bad news for us 360'ers
    Another insightful post by Baldy!!

    Great, Avatars... Can I just play my games please M$? Please... If I wanted to be all cute I'd buy a Wii and if I wanted to be bombarded by advertising I'd watch ITV. I don't mind avatars so much, just more the way M$ is going to utilise them for revenue. But I guess if there's people willing to pay then it's worth doing.

    Just get it over with so I can get back on TDU.

    You guys are talking has if its the end of the world, seriously its only a console and ok I admit any more than week not playing on it, I just get the urge to have a go but come on its only 24 hours.

    Go out, goto the pub, cinema, spend sometime with the girlfriend and enjoy not having the box for company ...........
