Posted on April 18, 2008, Chris Xbox Live Undergoing Maintenance on Monday
This Monday, April 21, from 2AM and 10AM PT Xbox Live will be undergoing server maintenance. That means no new features when Xbox Live comes back up. Aside from Live, you won’t be able to access the My Xbox section of Xbox.com and you’ll only be able read the forums and no posting.
The news comes courtesy of Major Nelson, who specifically stated that there won’t be any new features on either Xbox Live or Xbox.com once the maintenance is through. (Click here to translate the time into your local time zone.)
While it seems reasonable to connect this with the system update that was released today, this more than likely is just preparing Xbox Live for the onslaught that’s going to happen when Grand Theft Auto IV launches. Hopefully this maintenance is sufficient enough that the first night of being able to play GTA online isn’t a laggy one.
