According to Xbox's Major Nelson, the maintenance will take place between 10am and 2pm GMT.

"As a result, the 'My Xbox' section of will be unavailable, and the Xbox forums will be in read only mode (you won’t be able to post)", he wrote on his blog. The rest of is up and running, though.

If you're hoping for all sorts of spanky new enhancements to the service, you're out of luck: "This is for maintenance, there are no new features that will appear when the service comes back online. This is all for server maintenance... Nothing more, nothing less."

Roll on 2pm, then...
