Xbox Live will be offline for a little while this morning, according to Microsoft's Major Nelson.

"The service maintenace is in preparation for the New Xbox Experience which will be available this Wednesday," reported the Major. Check out the NXE gamepage for the full rundown on all it's got to offer.
