Xbox 360: Issues and Additional Maintenance

As can be expected, the AotI launch and pre-expansion patch have brought up a couple of issues. Many of these are related to PSUv1 players who had downloaded the patch, but not yet bought AotI.

After discovering these issues (an hour or two after the planned maintenance), they essentially went into emergency maintenance mode. While AotI users have been able to come back to play, PSUv1 users are still prevented from accessing the server. There was also a very short rollback (only to before maintenance started).

Many of these happened to be because of the title update not being applied or downloaded correctly. It is encouraged that you restart your 360 after receiving this update.

Because of these issues, there will be an additional maintenance around 9 PM PST tonight. Microsoft is apparently going to lend a helping hand as well. It's said that everything should be corrected after this one.

Edit: In other news, Major Nelson has finally posted about AotI. The link is below. It would seem that there is a seperate JP version, so I would not suggest trying to download it for use with a non-JP PSU disk.

Edit 2: The JP page is claiming that maintenance will last from 10 PM PST until 11 PM PST.
