In case you haven’t tried booting up your Xbox 360 nd gunning at your 7th prestige in Call of Duty: World at War today, Xbox Live is down and will continue to be down until midnight tonight. Akin to the pre-New Xbox Experience maintenance that occurred last year, Microsoft is working on backend updates that will make for an easier transition to a newer Xbox experience complete with Facebook, Twitter, and Last.fm. Again, XBL gamers won’t magically have these apps as soon as the service is back up tomorrow, but the gears are surely in motion. That or Microsoft is truly evil and came up with this excuse to steal online gaming from us for a day. You make the call.
