My plans to have a solid hour of Call of Duty were thrown out the window thanks to the as of now, unstable xbox live service, I have had numerous problems including, not being able to sign into live, signing in but not having any of the blades load, and lastly a broken matchmaking service, in COD4 the matchmaking is unable to fill the player slots needed or balance the teams, instead it repeatedly drops players and then replaces them in an endless loop of doom.
Xbox lives Major Nelson a.k.a Larry Hyrb has come forward and said;
'You may have noticed that the LIVE service has been having a few issues over the past few days. This includes things like signing in, matchmaking and account recovery. Not everyone has had problems, but I know some of you have and I wanted to give you and update. While the service was never completely offline, problems like this are not acceptable. The entire LIVE team has been working day and night to ensure that you can have a great LIVE experience. While we’re not done yet, I wanted to let you know that things are getting better each hour and that no one on the team is going anywhere until the job is done. Thanks for your patience.'
Good to see they're working on it.
