Xbox Live Update Kills Connection, Despite Delays
Microsoft finally rolled out its massive update to Xbox Live today, and it looks great. The problem, however, is that it has disrupted many users’ connections to Xbox Live, citing a “connection error”. This error is implied to be user end by the error message, though when I tested my connection, the only stage that failed was to Xbox Live– my console connected to the internet just fine. There’s been no work-around supplied yet by Microsoft, though I know the problem to be at least as widespread as the other side of my homestate, Colorado, courtesy of facebook updates from similarly frustrated friends. Once a fix becomes available, I will certainly post instructions for anyone else experiencing this anomaly. How about the rest of you? Can anyone else weigh in on how far this problem spreads?
