Xbox Live still down for maintenance

It's "taking longer than expected".

Anyone trying to log on to Xbox Live this morning will be out of luck as the service is still down for maintenance.

As reported last week, Microsoft warned the downtime would begin on Monday and last for 24 hours.

However, according to Major Nelson, "The Live maintenace is taking longer than expected." So you still can't access Live or the My Xbox bit of, or post on the forums.

Major Nelson is promising to update us on the situation at 0200 hours Pacific Standard Time, or 10 o'clock in the old money.
