Xbox Live nips out for a bit

Forgot to return a video.

Xbox Live is going offline for three hours this morning for maintenance.

The service will be down between 10am and 1pm by our reckoning, and if you live outside middle England you can head to another bit of the Internet to compare time zones.

Don't get too excited though, because Xbox Live's Major Nelson insists: "there will be no new features that will appear on Xbox.com, your dashboard or Xbox Live when we return to service".

As part of the downtime, the My Xbox section of Xbox.com will be unavailable and the Xbox Forums will be read-only. If that.
