Xbox Live downtime next week

Offline for Tuesday.

Microsoft is planning to shut down Xbox Live for a whole day next week, but apparently it's not for the highly anticipated autumn dashboard update.

The service and will be down starting midnight Pacific Time (7AM BST) on 17th October for "up to 24 hours".

Why? "Because we're adding some cool stuff," according to What? "Secret cool stuff that we'll tell you about when we're back online October 18. Other stuff we'll be talking about later in the fall."

Okay then.
