Xbox Live Marketplace Down
According to various XBA readers whove contacted us in the last hour (and weve tested the claims ourselves), Xbox 360 consoles are currently having trouble displaying any Marketplace content.
The problems arrive at the same time as a planned Xbox 360 dashboard update, and Microsoft says its "aware" of the issue.
The Xbox Live support team said in a statement:
"Users may experience difficulties with the following services: Browsing Indie Games from the Xbox 360 console or Xbox.com, browsing the Games for Windows - LIVE Marketplace on a PC, Browsing Games Marketplace from the Xbox 360 console or Xbox.com.
"We are aware of the problem and are working to resolve the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience."
Although most likely related to the ongoing dashboard update deployment, after the PSN breach drama of the last month there are undoubtedly a few 360 owners on the edge of their seats.
